Is it legal for a police officer to take your wallet from you after you have given him your license?
My 19 year old son was at a fraternity party he was intoxicated. He left the party as he was walking he stumbled and fell. A police came to assist and noticed that he was intoxicated. He asked for my son's license which was given to him. The officer then took my son's wallet and look through it an found a fake ID. He issued tickets for underage drinking and fraudlent misuse of a license not issued to him. My son's license has been suspended for a year and seven months. We are trying to get hi license reinstated and I must find grounds to show that his license should be reinstated.
If your son let him do it, it's probably legal. You should fight the ticket.

Can you be charge with DUI after an emergency room blood draw
involved in a motor vehicle accident was transported to hospital for a minor abrasion to my leg, no other complaints of injury. blood was drawn and the results were returned half and hour before my documented in custody time. NOTE: an officer was in the room when the Dr. returned with the results of the blood test. Medical records document the time of test and the time of results, only documented arrest time was on the warning to motorist. Please cite any case law pertaining to time of arrest in relation to the results of an emergency room blood draw.
I would look into filing a Motion to Suppress the blood draw. I recommend contacting a lawyer if you haven't done so...

My suggestion is that you hire counsel if you wish to maximize recovery. The insurance company has already...
Can you travel to Canada with only one dui charge on record?
I was arrested in 2007 for a dui in Illinois and I now need to go to Toronto for work (I'm an IT consultant) because my company's head office is there so may have to go about once a month or so. Can I get in if it was in 2007? I think 10 years is what they look for? Should I try once and see what happens at the border? Thank you!
I am not sure if it is that automatic. I would suggest you contact Marisa Feil. http://www.canadianimmigration.net/about-us/
