My stepfather has been on parole for a little over a year for felony Dui. He has violated his probation.What are is options now?
My stepfather went to the emergency room in New Albany MS and was presented with some very bad news. The doctors found a spot on his lung that they are all but certain is lung cancer. This news triggered a relapse with my stepfather. After a year of not drinking a drop he turned to alcohol as a coping mechanism. He had just received news that was all but a death sentence. He was stopped in Corinth MS for going through a light that was turning yellow. He blew a .7 on the breathalyzer machine that checks for alcohol levels. Although he did not blow enough for a DUI, he was ticketed and jailed for it anyway. He had one of his diabetic pills out of the bottle and laying on the dash of his vehicle so the officer checked under the influence of other substances. He requested a blood test-denied
He faces both a parole violation as well as from what you were stating it sounds like he has additional charges. He...

I have a smart start interlock device and blew my first violation. Will this affect the non-adjudication requirements?
I have had the interlock device in my car for a month now and have never blown anything but a PASS. This morning when I went to start my car I blew a violation/fail. I did brush my teeth and know that can cause the fail. But, last night I went to a Christmas party and did have three drinks and made sure I drank water and had a designated driver. Could this have caused the violation? If so will it affect my non-adjudication? I had my roommate drive me to work rather than risk it. I know alcohol can stay in your system for a while but I am having a slight panic attack thinking that I have just ruined everything. Any advice will help.
You need to contact the attorney that handled your case and advise them of the facts. Whether it will affect your non-...
Would it help if I talk to the prosecutor on my husband's behalf? If he loses his job, we will lose everything.
My husband is charged with DUI. I was the extremely drunk one and we were having an argument outside. the people surrounding us called the cops about noise. The cops never saw him driving but he admitted to driving and blew over the limit. Our attorney is recommending a plea deal where he pleads guilty to DUI but receives the bare minimum in punishment. The attorney has said that the arresting officer's account is very sympathetic towards him and that she even mentions he did not appear drunk and passed the field sobriety tests but based on his answers, she gave him the breath-test. I know he broke the law in trying to take care of me. Do you think the prosecutor might agree to a lesser charge with the same punishments if I talk to her and explain what it will do to our kids and my husband
Your husband is represented. It would be unethical to give him legal advice. Talk to your attorney
I couldn't sleep and a family/retired MD gave me medicine with "drowsiness" as a side effect. Mug shot in paper . public drunk
He thought pill would make me sleep. It knocked me off my feet (muscle impairment,wide awake). I thought I was having a stroke . I was 60 yo and had high BP. I couldnt find my cell ph and walked into my yard on dead end street in last house ,saw neighbor, asked him to call an ambulance for me. He did and I sat down . When I saw vehicle lights I stood up and stepped into the str. First vehicle was a cop. He blocked the medical guys from even talking to me and when I and the amb guys objected, he arrested me. No tests were given . He said I was not to be charged and to be let out "free ticket" after I "slept it off" till 6 am. Ended up with my pic in paper as public drunk. Can I do anything? pic in paper hurt and estranged my adult and college aged kids?
Likely no. It's not false information. You were arrested. You might have a lawsuit against the doctor, though..
I was recently charged with dui. I was going 16 over and I saw the cops lights turn on. when I pulled over he said he saw me throwing a joint out the window. he searched me and my car and even the trunk which I believe is illegal without my consent and he didn't find any incriminating evidence. the only test he ran was the eye test which I believe I passed based on his reaction. he also broke my watch which I had just bought and was on my way back from getting. is this case possible to beat and what would you do to beat it?
Please hire an attorney. We see people day in and day out in justice court trying to represent themselves and even when...
