DUI charge. No arrest, just a summons 3 wks after due to 0.239 BAC. I drank after but have a letter from people who helped me pick my bike up stating I was fine

What happens in court if a person is picked up on a DUI and is not a citizen but has a permanent resident card?
This person has lived and worked in the US for 30 years and has no former convictions. He is not working now because of a disability. He has a ME license . He was told he will lose his license for five months and will have to pay a fine of $500.00. This incident occurred near his home and the State policeman who stopped him said he had passed him at a stop light, which he didn't do. Then went on to ask why the lights were not on in his house. Apparently this officer had been watching him for some reason for quite some time. I don't understand why customs and immigration would have anything to do with this and it is causing him a lot of stress since his lawyer told him that. Can you give me some information on this? Thank you

Yes, if he was a police officer he can arrest your friend even though his four wheeler was unmarked.
I have a felony OUI (3rd offense) hanging over me. How long does the DA have to indict me (its been 3 months). Will the DA deal
I believe I could supply the DA (Kennebec) with some information unrelated to my case. These would be drug related. I know of one specific individual that could more than likely lead the DA towards narcotics dealers. He has stolen property (tools $1000 worth) from me and I have the proof. I am hoping to use this before I have him arrested. I know for a fact he smokes pot, I strongly suspect he also does heroin. He actually has pointed out a "dealers" house to me.

How many days will I actually have to serve?It was for a DUI...
This is a re-posted question from a few days ago. Call a local attorney for this type of specific information.
Hypothetically, if I were underage drinking and a cop asks if I have been, should I deny until I (maybe) get breathalyzed or is it smarter to just admit. Of course they'll say, "If you just tell the truth, you'll be in a lot less trouble," but is that the case? I'm curious because it isn't automatic that a cop will breathalyze you if you keep your composure (I say this because I live in a college town and there are more people to bust), but its automatic guilt if you admit. What are the reprocussions of saying, "No, I haven't been drinking," then the breathalyzer says differently? Or is it the same as just admitting guilt?
And admission of drinking is going to be proof that you violated the law. Police probably won't even bother to do any...
