My name is Stephen R. Cohen and I have practiced over 38 years and can be reached at 213-819-1171. I practiced mainly in Los Angeles and Orange County, California. I am not seeking clients from existing relationships with other attorneys, and give only limited advise over the phone (the phone is primarily used to set appointments), these services do not create an attorney client relationship. I apologize for mispelling< as I am a lousy typist, My answers may offend as I do not believe in pulling punches or sugar coating the truth. Further regarding courts in other states my opinions are largely based on logic and what I think is the modern trend which is to consider the needs of the child.
If you were parked on the side of the freeway the officer is still allowed to do what is called a "wellfare check," to ensure your safety. Remember it is hazardous to be parked on the side of the freeway. If your vehicle is disabled the officer has a duty to make sure that everyone is okay, and that a potentially dangerous situation is averted. If you admitted to driving and told the officer how long you had been there, this makes defending your case more difficult. You need to contact an attorney and consult with him regarding some of the details of your case.
Police are able to do that, and DA/DMV will argue they can prove driving and time of driving per Vehicle Code 40300.5 (basically the welfare check law). However, the bigger questions are how the officer breathalyzed you, if you are even a good candidate for breath testing, and how you looked on the video as opposed to the officers report.
