Parked Vehicle DUI charge ..keys near ignition(passenger seat). 2nd DUI charge outside of five years.
This sounds like the type of case that you can win in court, and an experienced DUI attorney with experience in the court where you case is pending could probably get it dropped or reduced. You definitely do not want a 2nd DUI, as you will be looking at the need to install an interlock devise on your car in order to drive at all during the next year. Also, if the officer did not return your license to you after the arrest, there is probably an administrative license suspension process ongoing. in such case, you would only have 10 days to request a hearing in order to prevent a one year suspension of your license, regardless of the outcome of the case in court. See a DUI attorney immediately to find out.
