Driving with child while intoxicated
If a parent (or even a non-related adult) drives while intoxicated with a child in the vehicle but is not stopped by police and accused of driving while intoxicated can they be punished? I assume they could not be punished on DUI charges but is this considered child endangerment or recklessness in anyway?
It would be very difficult to prosecute this case without some solid proof. Most DUI evidence is gathered by a police...
Hi. I got charged for two accounts of DUI (DUI marijuana & DUI unsafe) in one stop and a failure to maintain lane charge.
Is there any way I can get it reduced to a reckless driving charge? Because I know they’re going to drop one considering they can only charge me with one, I was just wondering could I get whatever I’m convicted with reduced. Is there anything I could do as far as community service before court to get it reduced or anything? I really just don’t want to deal with everything that comes with a DUI, especially considering the fact I wasn’t under the influence the time I got arrested. I’ve never received a charge a day in my life. I heard it’s harder to prove DUI marijuana cases, but I did a blood sample and Georgia has zero tolerance & I smoked within a few days of the stop so it’s going to be in my blood, meaning I could be charged. Can anyone give me any good legal advice? I have a public defender, but I haven’t had to chance to talk to her since they’re putting my court date back continuously waiting on the blood sample. I’m on month 4 now, with my next set date being the end of September.
There are plenty of lawyers out there who can give you good legal advice. If you are unsatisfied with your public...

Can I get a dui from 1981 expunged from my record?
I had to pick up a copy of my background report in Lawrenceville, Ga. For employment for one company and had no idea a 1981 DUI had been on the background. Would like to remove an ancient incident, only seems fair to be allowed to do so.
Assuming you were convicted of the DUI, unfortunately the answer is no.
Can I be charged with open container or dui without being pulled over?
I was not drinking and driving. I was at a red light and realized I had the empty minis in my purse that I had been drinking at home the night before, so I tossed them out of the car. There was an officer behind me. He did not pull me over. What kind of citations can he issue without actually pulling me over? I’m worried because I need to update the registration for my car with the correct address, so if anything is sent to me, I might not receive it.
It’s theoretically possible you could be charged with open container or littering. But unless you were pulled over, it’...
WWhat happens to your case if the arresting officer is himself arrested ?
Was arrested for a posession charge 10 years ago. I sadly got a dui the other day and I know walker county Georgia probation has issued a warrant for me. However, when I was booked for dui the officer who arrested me was in jail for drugs. Can my original possession charget be thrown out? Or what can I do? I'm not worried about the dui too much
If the case were still pending then you could probably benefit, but I don’t see this affecting a ten year old...
