I was arrested over an allegation of drink driving in Spain

Customer Question

I was arrested over an allegation of drink driving in Spain in August 2005 at the time I was released with no charge and was not interviewed until some 15 months later I was not allowed to give a statement and bring my witnesses to prove my innocence. In December 2010 I think I was charged with the offence of DUI and reckless endangerment this was 5 yrs 4 months after the allegation was made, I was not given a court date and I left Spain in Sept 2013. Whilst in Benidorm in July 2015 I was arrested and bailed to a court date in March 2016. Just to add through out this process I believe my human rights were denied me on several occasions ie denial of interpreter denial of legal advice, the fact that I'm entitled to have the paper work in a language that I can understand. And now due to the time lapse my witnesses that could prove my innocence my wife and two friends are all deceased and due to the denial of the legal process they were not allowed to give statements again I believe my human rights will be denied me as I should be entitled to question all witnesses

Hi there. José M spanish atorney. You have the right to defend yourself once you got into court and with the help of your atorney. You never will be allow to go into court without an atorney. So the first step is to go into court to get the chance to defend you. But uf you do not go, you could be declared guilty. So I need to know the charges against you, if you were into court or not, in order to help you. Please send me all the details you have and I will make my best to help you. Thank you
