Got pulled over due to police stating I ran a red light which i know I didnt do. I wasnt intoxicated my breath test came out normal but blood test came out with a over the counter med that not for me i took two days before due to anxiety attack i had which i get very badly. So now I have a hard time affording rent that i only pay $400 and i had fractured 2 lumbars in my spine that prevent me from working or lifting. I dont know what to do I dont want to go to jail i would rather do community service in my area but at the same time how can i get that dui out when one i didnt run a red light and two i only took meds for anxiety attack that had me on the ground holding myself with very little breathing. If i ask fr proof of me running light and they dont have vieo there at that time can i ask for it to be exsponged due to lack of evidence???
Get a public defender to take your case. Check with the county court where you are charged with DUI to find out how to get a public defender to represent you.
As my colleagues have indicated, you should call the Lehigh County Public Defender's Office and apply for representation. Sounds like you will want to dispute the charges at trial and will need an attorney to assist you. If you do not qualify for a public defender, you could call the local bar association to inquire about representation by an attorney at a reduced fee or retain an attorney on your own. Bottom line, you need a lawyer if you intend to fight the case.
