In Georgia, They will usually test under the DRE (drug recognition expert) guidelines for field sobriety examinations. However, They don’t have to test for the specific drug itself as there is no requirement for that.
Incident is over 2 years ago and all they have is body cam footage of car being off the side of road and suspect being belligerent. Is that enough evidence alone for a conviction? No prior DUI's before this
Short answer: yes, prosecution and/or conviction on DWI cases is still possible without the tests you describe. The State of Texas was prosecuting DWI cases long before blood or breathalyzer test were available. Talk with your attorney. Good luck.
You would have to get them expunged in Kentucky if expungement is permitted in the Commonwealth. You can only expunge an Indiana case in Indiana. I highly recommend re-asking this question of attorneys licensed to practice law in Kentucky.

The law prohibits paying a public employee of any kind for them to provide you with personal services not available to the general public. This is called bribery. Both the person paying and the recipient are committing a crime.

DUI charges are very complex to defend. You may be eligible for pretrial diversion, but that will depend on your DA's office policies and if you have a Commercial Driver's License, CDL. If you really need to save your license, you should get an attorney involved as soon as possible.
Not sure of your question. But DOS issues ID Cards and will require Birth Certificates or your old TNDL, at least. And completing a DUI Sentence is usually not required, but could cause other problems.

Prior to that I smoked marijuana so I know that both substances will appear in my blood sample. The violation listed on my... Read more »
