What should be my next steps? Do I need to get a lawyer?
My son (who was a passenger in back seat, we currently live in MD) and friends where stopped by police in GA on way back from Orlando. They where stopped because the driver was going 10 miles over speed limit. The Officer believed she was drinking and asked if they could search the car. They said yes. In my son's backpack that was in the trunk of the car was a Grinder. So they arrested him and he is being charged with "possession and use of drug related objects". He is scheduled to go to court on December 8th in Darien, GA What should I do?
You absolutely need to hire an attorney. Based on your post, there are some defenses available.
Is there anything that can be done to lower the charges? Is there anything I can do? Can I get the court date pushed back?
I live in Louisiana. I was arrested for reckless driving speeding on the freeway in Georgia. . The officer assumed that I had been drinking. He asked me if I wanted to take a blood test and I declined. He charged me with dui as well. I wasn't in my right mind at the time. I was going through a low blood sugar and high blood pressure episode. When they booked me 6 or 7 hours later, my blood pressure was still at 179 over 115. I would never have driven that fast under normal circumstances. They never forced any kind of testing on me either.
The answer to all three of your questions is the same - yes, IF you hire an attorney.
My daughter was arrested for DUI pending . had blood test . how do we find out results of this test
She did the Breathalyzer and was not over the limit but they wanted to do a blood test to see if there was marijuana in her system

How do I beat an unwarranted DUI charge?
I'm 36 no criminal or drug history, and a clean driving record minus a few speeding citations. A few days ago, around 5 pm, I was pulled over for speeding, which I was guilty of. I was accompanied by my 8 yr old daughter and 2 yr old grandson. After questioning my speeding, the officer insinuates that I'm drunk? I giggled and ask if he was serious, informed him that I don't drink. Questions continue about alcohol consumption, I of course deny any alcohol or illegal drug use. He asks me to step out of the car for a few tests... I abide. Before beginning he ask what drugs I was on. I explain to him that I took my prescribed adderall and allergy meds in the am, and a couple of ibuprofen a few hours ago for a headache. Ask what's adderall for, I explain for my Adhd. He proceeds with his sobriety tests, and then says I can get back in the car. After a few minutes he returns, states that I failed the first tests and would like me to repeat them. I ask why, he replied I didn't follow his directions? Which I can say I did to the best of my abilities! Being ADHD I explained it is hard to concentrate especially under stress! He has me repeat tests(which I pass twice) and then arrested me
Not at all uncommon. Best to hire the best. You can find. And you can find some of the best here on Avvo.
Can I be charged with DUI Refusal?
I was given a ticket for DUI refusal. The officer requested a breathalyzer. I complied. It's said the machine detected a substance other that ethanol or something like that. So the officer told me to wait about 30-45 minutes and try again. So I tried again and it read the same error message. So then the officer requested a blood test and I refused. So how can I be charged with DUI refusal if I blew twice?
The officer requested breath first then you didn't refuse. However, the prosecution would argue that you refused...
