Can A Defense Lawyer Really Get You Out Of A Dui With The Denture Trapped Alcohol Defense?
Can A Defense Lawyer Really Get You Out Of A Dui With The Denture Trapped Alcohol Defense?
I Blew A .11 With Dentures That I Had Done Has A Immediate Denture Procedure. After A Month They Where Ready For A Reline And Where Very Lose Trapping Food And Liquid Causing A Higher Bac! I Have Done Test With A $150 Breathalyzer By Swishing Beer In My Mouth Spit It Out And Wait 20 Mins And I Blow Up To .06. I Am Not Trying To Get Out Of My Dui But I Know How Much I Had To Drink And It Does Not Match Up With Bac Calculator I Should Have Been Blowing Around .04. My Dui Happend In California.
A forensic alcohol study was done on trapped alcohol in dentures. The importance of the study was this: An individual with No alcohol in his or her system can blow into a breath machine twice and get the same result because of alcohol trapped in dentures.
See, usually mouth alcohol evaporates at a very high rate, which would make the one breath sample much higher than the other. For example, a .28% on the first blow, verses a .07% on the second. This would trip the machine and notify the user that there was possibly mouth alcohol and the test would have to be redone.
The denture study basically proved you could get two exact samples, which is huge to the defense.
I was in the Down Town Metro Court on Thursday where a Well Known Forensic Toxicologist testified to the "trapped denture" defense during a DUI trial.
In addition, you may have blown a .06%, but lets say your BAC was already a .06% and the trapped alcohol raised it another .06%, which would then put you at a .12%.........See how mouth alcohol would then be a problem???:

Real Estate Law Property Lines?
I Have A New Neighbor That Is Buying Property Bond For Deed Come Talk To Me The Other Day. He Said That The Property Line Runs Thru My Garage Anad Shed I Have On My Property. We Have Owend The Land For Over 45 Years The Previous Owner Never Said A Word About The Line Being Wrong. Does The New Owner Make Us Buy The Land Form Him ?
This can be a very sticky situation. First before you spend any money, ask him how he get that information. It is possible that you have "encroached on his property". If he has a survey, you need to see it. If he does not, the burden is on him .
Under the real estate law, if you have a piece of land and the general public has been making a path through the land to reach say a lake on the other side to fish, and you knowingly haven't done anything to stop it, that path may become a public right of way. So if your neighbor knew about it and did anything about it for 45 years, it is going to be messy in court. But it may not come to that.
Now if this person is in the process of purchasing the property and if he is going to get a mortgage, the bank will require a certified survey. That survey will tell what is what. If in fact you have encroached on your neighbor's property, the bank will not give the loan until the encroachment is fixed.
You are in a good bargaining position. If the amount of land is small, see if your neighbor will deed the small portion of land to you for a token sum of money so you may welcome the new neighbor to the area. If the impact is large (whether it is on your side or their's), then you may have to discuss that with your attorney to see what direction you may want to take.
Help! I'M Desperate! Ex Boyfriend Trouble?
My Ex Boyfriend And I Were Living Together For Five Months. In That Amount Of Time We Took Out A Credit Card And Purchase Furniture And Other Items. The Credit Card Is In My Name And While We Were Together He Was Helping Me Make Monthly Payments. We Are No Longer Together, And He Will Not Pay For The Furniture Or Give It Back To Me. Basically I Am Being Forced To Make Payments On Furniture Only He And His Child Uses? My Ex Says That I Owe Him For Rent Which We Didn'T Agree On Nor Is It Written Anywhere. Obviously I Have Record On My Credit Card History That The Furniture Was Purchased And Belongs To Me. Right Now All My Things Are Sitting In His House And I Have No Access To Them. I Am Beyond Broke And Need Help Figuring Out What My Next Move Should Be?
This belongs in SIngles & Dating or Law & Ethics...
Contact the police and see if they can help you get your things (they probably can)...if that doesn't work, then contact your local Legal Aid office and talk with them about it...they can give you legal advice and direct you to low/no cost legal representation should you need to go to court to get your things back...
Learn the lesson...no more joint credit card purchases (esp if you aren't married to the person)...
I Have Filed An Appeal To My Ex'S Getting Temp. Custody . Where Do I Go From Here With No Attorney?
Well, you have to file a brief with the court. The appeal's process is tougher than the trial process, you will really need an attorney. Just so that you understand, in the appeal court they do not retry the case. The appellate court is the court to raise discrepencies with the law, as a result you need to know the law to make an effective argument. Contact your local bar association, you can find them on the web. They will provide you with an attorney for free. You can e-mail me if you have any more specific questions.
How Do Lawyers (Specifically Criminal Defense Attorneys) Use Computers In Their Career Field?
I Am A Freshman In College, And I'M Going To College To Eventually Become A Criminal Defense Attorney. In My Computers Class, We Have To Give A Presentation On How Computers Are Used In Our Career Field. I'M Hoping Some People, Or Even True Lawyers, Could Give Me Some Advice. Thanks!
#1 use: word processing
#2 use: research
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions. If you possibly can, change your major asap.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

How Is A Judge (Family Law) Able To Remove Herself Off A Case? Why Would This Happen?
We Have Been With This Judge For Over The Course Of 2 Yrs Now And We Recently Had A Hearing. At The Point Of Checking In With The Clerk, She Let Us Know Then That The Judge Has Removed Herslef From Our Case And We Are Now With A Different Judge!!! Wow. Why And How Is This Possible?????
+ Please Only Answer If You Know The Reason. No Smart Allic Comments Please. This Is My Sons Life I Am Talking About. Thanx In Advance! +
There are several reasons why a judge removes herself from a case. The judge could have discovered a conflict of interest. The judge may have a schedule conflict. The court system in your jurisdiction may have rotating duties for judges.
If there is a family law case complicated enough that there are repeated appearances over two years, litigants in that case should have been represented by attorneys. If your son is a party in that case, have your son ask his attorney why the judge removed herself from the case. If your son is a minor in this case, and you are a party, ask your attorney. You may also ask the minor's attorney ad litem why the judge removed herself.
