Cave City Law

My s/o was charged with four crimes 2 possession of illegal instruments, a dui etc. I want to know if it we should get a lawyer?
My s/o had potpourri (the original package says the substances in it are not banned by federal/state law). He was charged with a pipe that only had the potpourri in it. He was given a urine screen that he will pass. He was on the phone pulled over on the side of the road when the homeowner called the cops. They didn't ask to search his vehicle nor did they give him any sobriety test, and they didn't tell him what he was arrested for. What is my best option.

How long does the court have to charge someone a DUI?
Back in 2015, I was arrested and charged with DUI. On February of 2016 was my first court appearance and the prosecutor asked for a continuance. In June of 2016 we went back to court and again the prosecutor asked for a continuance for no witnesses showing up. In July of 2016, the state again asked for a continuance because the arresting officer was unavailable. In August of 2016, all parties were present, no witnesses or the officer were asked any questions and the judge stated that he would look over the evidence and render a verdict. That was over a year ago and still no word from the judge. At what point can I file a motion to dismiss? Have my civil rights to a speedy trial been broken because of the length in time it was from the moment I was arrested to almost two years waiting for a verdict?
I recommend that you contact an Arkansas criminal defense attorney about your situation. It appears that there was no...

What should I do to get a dwi off of my record so that I can continue to ship off for the military?
I admit to having one drink about an hour before I was asked to go to the store for my girlfriends mom. I ended up running into a pole. My girlfriend and her friends made it there before the police and state trooper did, yet the first police officer told the state troops that he saw it happen. They performed the nystagmus test, the breathalyzer, and the straight line test. After that he only told me that I was under arrest and placed handcuffs on me before putting me in the back of the police car.
Hate to tell you but it's already on your record. The military looks at charges and the underlying conduct. You seem to...

What all does a mip of alcohol charge contain?
My son got a mip ticket for having beer in a ice chest in truck. They took his license and gave him a 30 day temporary one then his license will be suspended. So my questions are 1. does this go on his record and driving record? 2. Since it says on the sheet his license will be suspended (30/60 days do not know the exact amount of days on that since never dealt with this before and it is his first offense, i looked up online and some say 30 days first offense and some say 60) does that mean that there will be a reinstatement fee? 3. what is usually the sentence for a mip? He has not went to count yet and I have been trying to figure out what all will be done. Thank you in advance for any replies.
Hard to predict what will happen in Arizona but in Washington, a first offense MIP would usually result in a "Continued...
