DWI with a BAC of 0.15. Blood drawn.1 year ago I was in a car accident were I lost control of my car and ended up in someone's front yard. When the police came they wanted to issue a breathalyzer test. I knew I had been drinking so I refused. I was then taken to the hospital and my blood was drawn for a BAC of 0.15. I was bailed out the next day but my bail was double the norm because the officer reported me hitting the house. When I got out i went back to the house to apologize and to see about paying for the damages. I talked to the owner and they said I didn't hit the house. I paid for there yard to be re sodded and it was left at that. I haven't gotten into any other trouble since that night. All I do is work and take care of my family. If I go to jail well loose everything. I'm so worried.
First of all, don't post anythign on this public forum. You should immediately arrange for a private consultaion with a local attorney. There are often problems with blood test results and there are many issues that can be litigated such as wheterh or not anyone actually saw you behind the wheel. Even if these are are not enough to outright win a case, a skilled attorney can use these types of issues to work a plea in your favor.
Nothing in this message should be construed as legal advice or the creation of an attorney-client relationship. This is meant to only be a general guide and not a substitute for an actual consultation with an attorney.
This is a question that you need to propose to your attorney. Did they get a warrant for the blood draw. was the blood draw done properly? What is the plea bargain offer. Schedule an appointment with your attorney and ask these questions as well as whatever is on your mind about the case.
First DUI? third DUI? 53rd DUI? We need more information, specifically your criminal report. Talk to the attorney who is handling your case.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
The answer depends on way too many factors that we just don't have access to. With a case this old, I assume you have hired an experienced DWI attorney to represent you. If for some reason you have not yet, you need to hire on ASAP. That person needs to review all of the State's evidence. At that point, they will be able to have a sit-down with you and let you know what they have to work with and what some possible options are.
Macy Jaggers's answer to a legal question on Avvo does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Please consult an attorney who practices criminal law in your jurisdiction for the most accurate legal advice.
