What if the officer can't or his sargent cant find a police report of the DUI.?

I recommend your friend have her lawyer subpoena the report before the trial date. They may still not turn it over immediately, but I suspect your friend misunderstands the process. Police do not have to present the report to the defendant. They probably do not even have it now. It is likely in the prosecutor's file. It is not like a report on a motor vehicle accident. The defendant must go through the formal discovery process. Your friend should hire the best attorney she can afford. DUI convictions now are very serious. The consequences are not only costly but are long lasting.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
