I was driving back from seeing a friend, had a few beers and was driving back home when the cop pulled me over and arrested me for drinking under the influece. Placed me under arrest without reading my rights. He did a couple test on me like walking a line and saying the alphabet but I'm sure I passed them. My other citation was FTML , Open Containers, and Speeding. Is it worth me fighting this case or not? because I didn't have but 3 beers
First, cops don't have to read you your rights until they arrest you. That generally means putting the handcuffs on....
I was visiting Milledgeville this weekend with friends. We were walking home and I was wearing heels and had tripped. I have had many ankle and knee problems in the past so this fall was very common for me. We continued walking to a local gas station to wait for a friend to pick us up. As we walked into the parking lot, a police officer pulled up to us charging us with public drunk and Minor In Possession because we are both 20 years old. This is my first offense to any crime. I was just wondering if I would be able to fight the Public Drunk charge because I was not being loud or harming anyone else, we also did not admit to being drunk. My friend was also charged with both, yet she was not the one to fall. Would you suggest fighting it or just pay the fines and do the community service?
I highly recommend fighting both charges. If you are convicted/plea guilty to minor in possession of alcohol your...
I am in a DUI court program in Georgia and we are subject to random ETG testing where the result of a dilution will be jail time. I find this to be very unfair as there are many factors related to this issue. My question is how can a person be jailed for no evidence of using a drug or alcohol? I have read the SAMHSA website and they highly suggest not letting ETG testing be a test for life altering decisions...SAMHSA is actually the curricullum that our DUI court councilors are mandated to use....
As it stands currently, there are many published articles backed by scientific research that indicate several factors...

My name is on the National Driving Registry. The NDR has told me that it is due to a report from both Florida and Georgia. I have contacted the DDS for both states and they say there is nothing tying up my license, it is valid and that there should be no reason why my name is currently on this NDR yet it is and the NDR refuses to release my name from the registry despite this. I have been dealing with this for over 2 weeks with both states, what can i do?
If there are records on the NDR file that show you to have issues then YOU must contact both States of Record (SOR) or...
