Can I have my DUI reduced or dismissed if I drove involuntarily?

Question: Can I have my DWI charge reduced or dismissed based on information that I drove involuntarily? I mistakenly drove after taking ambien when I took the pills from my husbands prescription pill bottle instead of mine.
Answer: Where is your DUI case at? You should speak to a DUI attorney in your area to discuss your case in more detail. Many prosecutors are unlikely to really consider involuntary intoxication when negotiating prior to trial. Speak to a DUI attorney in your area though to get some feedback on how to best approach your case.
