Can I get an attorney appointed to me by the court for a misdemeanor DUI, public drunk, failure to comply and using profanity?
I was sitting in my vehicle on a rural country road talking to my elderly mom at 7:44 pm when a cop pulled up behind me and got out of his vehicle and came up to my truck and ask me to step out, put my hands on the hood, then patted me down, took me to jail (he said), for public drunk. When I got to the jail and I verbally protested his action(s), he then trumped up the charges, DUI, failure to comply (what), using profanity on a public Road? All I did was protest being arrested because I was not drinking alcohol, only sprite, I was not driving, only sitting, the vehicle was not even running. They took me to the jail and they stripped search me, they put me in a holding cell until next day. They taped a ticket up on the cell glass door that showed a DUI charge.
I would advise hiring an attorney. While it is an expense, it is worth it in the long run. Many municipalities will...

Laws vary from state to state, however, most jurisdictions punish third drunk drivings as felonies. This means in...
The statute of limitations for most felonies in Mississippi is two years.
Can I get a DUI other charge thrown out if they can't prove that I was under the influence of a controlled substance?
I went through a roadblock recently and they smelled marijuana and saw that my eyes were blood shot. I hadn't smoked in the vehicle and it had been a few hours since partaking of the drug. But ignorantly I had admitted to smoking 3+ hours before and they found a friend's used pipe and his empty container that had held weed. So I was arrested and charged with possession of paraphernalia and a DUI other. From what I've been able to ascertain - in order for a DUI other charge to stick, the state has to prove I was under the influence and that it affected my driving ability. However, I wasn't given a drug test nor a sobriety test. So do I have a chance of the DUI charge being dropped?
Your admission plus the pipe and the smell is probably enough.
I went to court last week - guilty of DUI I.
Talk to your attorney. They are in the best position to answer your question.
Did the arresting officer have probable cause to initiate a traffic stop which resulted in a DUI 1 arrest?
I was driving correctly in Mendenhall, Mississippi, on July 1, met a patrol car on the street, and he immediately did a U-turn and pulled me over. He stated, "I've had a call about you," which was his reason for stopping me. I had earlier backed into a ditch while turning around, received help from several people getting pulled out, so that must have been the source of his "call." Does that constitute probable cause for his stopping me?
More information is needed to make this determination. The audio is probably what we call the caretaking function as...
