Before my DUI trial my lawyer talked to the arresting officer and made a deal without my knowing. Is this legal?
The deal was: If the arresting officer didn't have the entire arrest report read, including parts where I was apparently talking too casually and too much, my lawyer wouldn't ask for certain fines to be reimbursed. She accepted this deal without consulting me. All I said were things like, "Are you a rookie?" and "Why aren't you busting crack houses instead of pulling me over?" and "Are you guys doing anything about the heroin problem down here?" In my defense I was drunk and tend to talk a lot anyway. It's not like I was screaming expletives. I even apologized several times for cussing on accident. It just kind of comes out when I talk.
Yes this is legal. Your lawyer was trying to help you. A judge would take a dim view of you making comments to the...

The treatment center is in Prince Frederick and it's called the Carol M Porto tretment facility. Honestly this is the second DUI, first was a bad situation that I needed to leave and had been drinking in college. The second, I was leaving my work Christmas Party. I have no trouble going through the treatment center, and doin everything required or suggested to show that I will not ever pick up another drink, and this will not happen again. However I have a bigger fear now, I recently ate marijuanna brownies, and now I'm worried the treatment center is going to test for marijuanna. Is this something they do? If so, how will it affect the outcome? Any advice would be appreciated.
