What would be the best thing to do? Should we fight it?
We got pulled over for a busted headlight the cop comes up to our car says he smells marijuana and we should just give it to him all we had on us was paraphernalia so we did. Told me and my husband to get out of the car they make him do 3-4 sobriety test and even a breathalyzer which came out to be 00.0 and said well your showing signs of being under the influence so we're going to take you in tonight.
You should talk to an Iowa criminal defense lawyer.
What happens if your boyfriend gets caught driving drunk in your car?
My boyfriend will use my car to go to work but sometimes stop for drinks instead of coming straight home. I don't want to be responsible if he's caught driving drunk. I would take my car away but he has to work so we can pay bills. Will I be held responsible if he gets in a wreck or stopped for drunk driving in my car?
Held responsible for him getting pulled over drunk - probably not. Held responsible if he gets in a wreck - absolutely.

You could be charged with a combination of simple and serious misdemeanors and face a pretty hefty fine and jail time....

Can my probation officer revoke or violate my probation if I revoke my authorization for her to speak to my doctor?
I've been on probation for 5 years and have done everything right for the last three. I graduated from drug court last October so it's been over a year now, and have still stayed out of trouble. My doctor recently changed my ADD meds from Concerta to Adderall and my PO is pretty upset about it, simply because it shows up in a drug test. I know many people that are prescribed all sorts of drugs by their doctors and don't go through this hassle. She's making me report to the probation office in the halfway house every day now simply because she knows it will make me mad. Any help or suggestions on what I can do? I'm only still on probation because I cannot pay off all of my fines.
Rather than see her as "just trying to make me mad" perhaps she's trying to make sure you're not getting high on those...
