buzzcut73: Honest Bender: Lumpmoose: Lessons in jury nullification need to be taught in high school.

Lessons in criminal justice need to be taught in high school. You don't get a jury trial for a DUI conviction.
Your profile says you live in CA, where a quick Google tells me you can get a jury for a DUI trial. I haven't heard of anywhere you -can't- have a jury trial for DUI, especially if there is a chance you can end up in jail.
You have to request a jury trial, but that is your right.


Pennsylvania.

No jury trial for a first time offense. They can also knock on your door for up to 2 hours after you get home and arrest you for DUI if you're over .08

I'm the product of California public school. I'm making your point for you. You're welcome.

Drinking and sleeping is illegal? But I've never had any problems drinking and sleeping before, I always wake up safe... sometimes naked and penniless, but safe!

Jon iz teh kewl: why do people always call 911 if it's not a problem. but in the back of the mind they know their being gay but do it anyway


Would you want to be the person that saw a drunk person in a car, did nothing about it and then they kill or hurt somebody later? So they're sleeping now, but that doesn't mean they'll be sober when they do decide to drive. The chances are slim, but why take the chance?
