Incorrect or missing information on a police officers statement
I live in Ohio but was arrested in Indiana on a lake for BWI (Boating while intoxicated). I just got a copy of the police report and some minor things that the officer stated were incorrect but the largest mistake was that he stated he "handcuffed me and walked me to his state issued truck" ... a little hard to do when we were on the lake. Additionally he left out all of the information with regard to the 3 others on my boat, his requirement of them taking a breathalyzer AND administering one after advising them that they could not move the boat unless someone was sober; the fact that he stopped me for a stern light not illuminated after sunset was not mentioned again in the report nor that he left 3 passengers on a disabled boat with no working lights after dark in the water.
The errors are minor and will be talking points for the criminal defense attorney you hire to defend you in this case!!
Is a statement given to police while intoxicated valid in california?
My boyfriend and I got into a fight while in California. I was extremely intoxicated and don't remember most of the details. He was arrested for domestic violence based on statements I made. I don't remember what statements I made to the police and not sure why they charged him. We are Ohio residents and I really don't want him going to court for something I can barely recall. He has no previous history of abuse and has never done anything to me before. Do I have any way to stop the DA from prosecuting?
California will admit any statement as evidence if it was voluntarily given. The question as to whether it is a true...
Can multiple DUIs be sealed/expunged?
Between 1990 and 1999, I pleaded "no contest" to three DUI's (two in Ohio and one in Virginia). Each was a misdemeanor. I complied with all fines and courts' sentencing. These are now affecting life insurance rates and I would like to not have to report them. I was a different person and it was a different time. Are these going to continue to haunt me for the rest of my life?
DUI's can not be expunged under Ohio law. You would need to consult with a Virginia attorney to determine if your...
How long does south euclid police have to pick up someone who was released from the cuyahoga county jail on another arrest ?
Friend was arrested. Inside the county for 2 months then released on gps monitor but later found out he has a warrant in south euclid for driving with a suspended license, so they are holding him until south euclid comes.
It depends on the county and the receiving court. It is usually only a couple of days in a situation such as the one...

Is there a way to expedite forensic lab testing of a drug for an F5 charge of possession of illegal drug?
It might be a legal drug. It might not be a drug at all. It could be an illegal drug... I have no idea. My lawyer says that if it's what the courts think it is, I will get probation.... It's just really pissing me off though that I have to wait to determine if I'm innocent or not. I want to get done with this as soon as possible and determine if I need to make any immediate life changes or not. If I get probation, I'll probably need to quit my job, since I work 7:00 am to 5:30 pm Mon-Fri as a GM, and it's a non-negotiable schedule, and sometimes it's more or less if I'm lucky. My next pretrial and trial dates have been set 3 months in advance last month... So November.... It's totally unfair that I don't know if I'm innocent or guilty, and the lab basically has had 60+ days already and it still isn't tested. Can I send money somewhere to speed up the process??? I honestly don't know what to do until November. What should I be doing at this point?
Not really. Unfortunately labs across the state are backed up. I'm not aware of anything you can do - or your...
What should I expect in court?
I smoked weed before I left the house to go and help a friend move or else her stuff was going to get thrown out. 3 or 4 hours have past and we still smelled like weed and as we was leaving that town I got pulled over. With us smelling like that she made me get out and do sobriety tests asked me questions and I admitted to smoking before I left the house then searched me and put me in cuffs and put me in the back of the car. She said she was arresting me for ovi and my lisence plate wasnt were it needed to be. I was the only one detained and they didn't keep me over night because I coaperated. I submitted to a drug test too. What should I expect in court? This would be my first offense and first time getting arrested. Will they send me to jail?
An OVI really isn't a laughing matter. You should get an attorney. With the help of an attorney it is likely you can...
