Can I move out of state with an open DSS investigation?
Last week DSS came out because someone called and they sent me to do a drug test Thursday. This will be my 8th DSS investigation in the past few years and my 3rd DSS investigation just this past year. I have been hair and urin tested with all of them and passed negative and the cases have been closed. Now yesterday they called with the results if this drug test and said that I tested positive for meth! I've never done that drug! I told her I had never done that and she asked if I had been around anyone who had and I explained that my ex boyfriend had been using for awhile behind my back and I was unaware. But when I found out i moved me and the children out of the home which was almost a month ago. She said she had heard of cases where someone fails for exposure. O also read online that asthma medicine and robatussin can cause you to have a false positive meth test. Which i have been taking both, so im not sure if that would be a cause asvwrll or not. She said she would contact my worker with the results today and let her know and I would be contacted. I am terrified they will take my kids for a drug I didn't even use. If I have passed all others why would I just decide to start do
No way to know if you can move out of state with an 8th DSS investigation, best to call the worker or your attorney. No...
How do I ask the court for a DUI plea bargain?
In 2014 I was pulled (minor swerving) and I denied a breathalyzer but I failed my field tests. I feel the best option is to plea guilty for a reduction to "reckless driving" , no fine and 6 or more weeks of DUI classes. Is this too much to ask? How do I ask in the right terms since I'll be representing myself?
Most prosecutors don't take DUI's lightly. If you want to plea to a lesser charge, you will need to know what the...

Can I get charged with rape of we were both too drunk to remember anything that happened?
So me and this girl I'm friends with went to my house to play video games, plan was nothing more nothing less. It was just to do that and neither of us even thought about having sexual relations together. But we had a drink or two, and those turned in to a lot more alcohol, and neither of us remember too much more beyond that. We were both too drunk to remember. But we ending up having sex, I know this because of the condom and such lying around that wasn't there earlier. But can she charge me with rape? She's upset that we had sex because she was a virgin, and has started talking about charging me with rape. If we were both unable to even remember what happened is she able to do that? Also might want to add that we are both over 21 so we can consume alcohol legally.
Yes, you can be charged with rape. The facts you list may or may not be a defense to the charge, but you can be...

When will South Carolina find out about my North Carolina DWI?
I was convicted of a second DUI in NC in March 2011. At the time, my SC license was suspended for a DUI I received there. My NC suspension ended 3/4/2015 and I paid the restoration fee at a NCDMV on that date. However, South Carolina has never been notified of this NC conviction in 4 years. Will SC find out when I go to a SCDMV to finally restore my license (I waited out the 4 year NC suspension even though the SCDMV said I was eligible for license restoration in February 2012), 4 years after the conviction and suspend my license again from the date of notification rather than the date of the NC offense in March 2011?
Good question and it is equally good that you appreciate it is still possible. It is hard to say when this will...
