Can a police officer give a breathalyzer test to a minor in a private home in Michigan?
A minor (age 17) was at a private party consuming alcohol in the basement of the house with the parent upstairs when the police arrived in the basement and gave out breathalyzer tests to all kids under 18. The minor was charged with an MIP. Is this legal? People 18 and over were not tested.
Maybe, but you are really asking more than one question and the facts which are not contained in your description...
Can my probation officer make me get an AA sponsor and/or "work" the program.
I am not asking if I have to go to AA. I am attending AA, I am collecting signatures and turning in the forms. She is telling me I have to get a sponsor and I think she is overstepping her bounds.
I answered this same exact question yesterday. The answer hasn't changed.

My sons room mate and her friends called him for a ride from a bar. They were too drunk to drive. On the way home her friends were destroying the back seat of his new car. He ask them to stop. When they didn't he stopped the car ask them to get out and told them to call someone else. When he got home his room mate tried to get in her car to go back and get her friends. My son went outside and took her keys away. She was yelling and walked off. He went back in the house, shortly after the police came to the house and arrested him for domestic abuse. He is in jail, they said he might get to see a judge tomorrow. The neighbors may have called the police because of the noise, but there was no abuse. He was trying to help. Now how do I help him?

Plead Guilty and take the sentence or plead not guilty and hire an attorney MIP.
I was in the rear seat of my car which my friend was driving. I had 6 beers through the whole night and did not want to drive and he stopped drinking 2 hours prior. We got pulled over for a headlight and were immediately accused of drinking and when asked for identification by the officer I realized I left my fake ID on top and tried to cover it up but he saw it. He then ushered everyone out of the car and my friend got a DUI and I got an MIP and my friends girlfriend got nothing. I was not written up for the fake ID but I am scared if I do get a lawyer they will bring up the fake ID and give me more charges. I am currently a per-med student and cannot have this on my record I am really hoping for a diversion program or something to expunge this charge. Do I need a lawyer?
