Alright I was charged with dwi and marijuana possession, searched, and no miranda rights.
After a sobriety test, the officer asked me if he'd find anything illegal, I said no, he then felt my pockets and pulled out a baggy of marijuana, I didn't consent to a search, and I thought they couldn't take out my personal property without asking ME to do so, (unless it be a weapon) , I showed no sign of danger that would even provoke him to search me, he placed me under arrest and stuck me in the cruiser without reading me my rights THEN asked me to consent to a drug test, which ("not knowing my rights to silence" I agreed to... is there a case here?

Do i even have a chance? 1st offense dui Virginia
charged with my 1st offense DUI. My roadside breathalizer test was 0.15. and one hour later my BAC was .08. My neighbor is a Lutenant for my local police dept and my neighbor. He offered to " look into" my charges. He felt he could get things reduced to a reckless and not to hire an attorney. Fast forward to today...court is on Tuesday the sept the 8th. The assistant district attorney called me and went over thier plea offer. She said the case had no flaws in her opinion and that she should give me no break. They plea is a reduction to wet wreckless. I would have to attend ASAP,interlock 6 months, 6 months loss of license and 250.00 fine. Basically DUI without the actual charge on my record. . Should i ask for a continence? Should i get a lawyer and fight it?

I got in an accident and got three charges, DUI, open container, and underage possession of alcohol. Keep in mind I'm 19. What would you recommend I do before court? I registered to take a driver's improvement class already. Is there anything else I can do to make this look like I am trying? Also, i can't afford a lawyer right now, so I'll have to get one appointed. Should I try to speak with someone at the court house before the court date, or wait until the first court date?
If you can not afford an attorney, you need to speak with one now, before the court date. If you were appointed the...
