I received a drinking in public charge in Bristol Virginia can I beat it?
I did not admit to anything to the officer he claimed I got out of the car with a beer. I was not driving I was in the back seat. I haven't seen the police report. I did not step out of the car nor did he collect the alcohol in the back seat as evidence.
None on this side of the Internet can predict what will or won't happen in court. Good for you not admitting anything....
Alright I was charged with dwi and marijuana possession, searched, and no miranda rights.
After a sobriety test, the officer asked me if he'd find anything illegal, I said no, he then felt my pockets and pulled out a baggy of marijuana, I didn't consent to a search, and I thought they couldn't take out my personal property without asking ME to do so, (unless it be a weapon) , I showed no sign of danger that would even provoke him to search me, he placed me under arrest and stuck me in the cruiser without reading me my rights THEN asked me to consent to a drug test, which ("not knowing my rights to silence" I agreed to... is there a case here?

Virginia DWI expungement
Two years ago I received a DWI charge which was nolle prossed in exchange for a guilty plea to civil refusal. No other lifetime arrest/criminal history. SOL has tolled on the nolle'd charge. Have filed an expungement petition in Circuit Court for the DWI charge, submitted fingerprints, etc. Waiting for background check to arrive in court. Should I hire a lawyer to handle the expungement hearing? Is the CA likely to object, and cite the refusal as a reason to deny the expungement?
