Q. I got a DUI but they didn't do a BAC test until way after I was stopped
A: While it is true that if BAC is not taken within 2 hours of driving the case get much harder to prove, and it may be enough to cause the case to be dismissed. DUI cases are highly fact based and you should let an attorney review the facts and discuss potential defenses with them.
Q. Is pulling someone's hair considered assault?
A: In Nevada, it would be a battery, not an assault. An Assault as defined in NRS 200.471 as 1) unlawfully attempting to use physical force against another person, or 2) intentionally placing another person in reasonable apprehension of immediate bodily harm. Battery is defined in NRS 200.481 as any willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another. Technically pulling someone's hair would be the use of force or violence upon the person of another and, if unlawful it would be considered a battery.
Q. About a month ago my wife and I had an argument. The police came and left and no one was arrested.
A: She needs representation. This charge is the a misdemeanor, but can impact some Constitutional Rights. This case should go away with a reasonable Prosecutor. Once she is represented, write the prosecutor to let him/her know that you were having a bi-polar episode and had convinced yourself that she struck you, but cannot now say that this is what actually happened. This should convince (or motivate) prosecutor to drop the case.
Q. How can I find a lawyer who represented me in the past?, lost contact information but I have the case number.
A: If you have the Attorney's name, you should be able to go to the State Bar website and track them down. If they are no longer practicing in the State, that makes it more difficult.
