Can the charges be dropped due to an unwarranted search
A family member was stopped for suspended license after their license plates were run by a patrol car. They were arrested and vehicle was searched. A baggy with cocaine residue was found in the vehicle, according to police. They were charged with possession of a controlled substance. After some digging, it was found the license was not actually suspended at the time of the traffic stop, but the states system was not yet updated with this info. Since the license wasn't suspended at the time of the traffic stop, could the possession charges become invalidated as a search wasn't warranted?
As long as the police acted on a good faith basis that the license was suspended, the traffic stop and arrest is good....
I was cited in MO for DWI, I live in IL. I had 2 past incidents. 1 was 10 yrs ago, the other 7 years ago. Can I avoid prison?
The DUI from 10 years ago is on my "public" record, but says Dismissed. The other shows DUI-reduced to reckless driving. I'm not sure what those mean or if they count as prior, and if convicted on the MO count, will IL consider this my 3rd. I'm a nervous wreck and scared for my life. I don't know what to do.
Here is a certainty. If you are convicted in MO, your Illinois Driving Privileges will be revoked. Beyond that,...

they checked my childs carseat and it wasnt belted properly (part of the seat was broken).

They DCFS investigator claims I will be contacted about being ticketed for DUI and child endangerment. Can they do this? My child has no marks on her, I dont do drugs and I passed a sobriety test.
It is hard to imagine how you could be prosecuted for DUI and child endangerment if the officer released you and let...

I got a DUI, but was parked on the side of the road not driving...
Pulled off on the side of the road because I was unable to drive and also took the opportunity to go to the bath room :/ While I was peeing, a police officer pulled up and arrested me for disorderly conduct and a DUI even though I was not in the car or driving. provided no breathalizer test Does this make sense? Can they charge me based off the fact that my car was located in a place that would require driving to get to?
The fact is the officer could reason out that you drove to the location while impaired. Also, relieving yourself in...

I presently have a suspended license, (financial/pending-dwi not alcohol) and was wondering how I could go about obtaining a hardship license in Illinois, so that I may drive to and from work still.
Hire an attorney who is experienced in these types of matters.
I was arrested for possesionof marijuana, and a dui even though I was not under influence but not charged with anything.
Months have gone by and not I receive a call from the officer telling me that I have to come in so he can process and charge me?
They are probably waiting for the ISP lab to analyze the blood if any was drawn and the substance to confirm the...
