Can DUI charges get dropped?
My boyfriend an u left a bowling alley Friday night. We got into a fight and pulled into a parking lot literally less then 5 minutes away from the bowling alley. We got out of the car. The engine was off. Keys in pocket and doors shut no one else was in the car. The cops arrived because of us fighting. The witness statement says they didn't see anyone driving just two people fighting. Despite our arguments we were contemplating whether to call a cab or friend to bring us home. When the cops showed up they arrested us both with DUI. What can we do.
Based on what you describe you have a very defensible case and a decent shot at beating the charge. That is if things...
If marijuana is legal in my state, is the smell probable cause?
A police officer spoke to a group of people I was in and told a story of how he pulled over a woman who was all over the road, and when he approached her she reeked of marijuana. He said that she most definitely had to have smoked prior to getting in the vehicle, but since she didn't match the textbook definition of "impaired" based on his field sobriety test, he let her go because marijuana is legal. Not all cops are the same as this one, so arguably, if you are in a vehicle (operating or passenger) and you are pulled over, does the smell of marijuana coming from the car warrant a search even if it is legal? Specifically when the driver/passengers do not exhibit signs of intoxication?
Alcohol is legal and the odor of alcohol gives the officer the right to further investigate. Unless there is a...

My wife got a dui and I am deploying in a few months. Will the fact that she is the sole caretaker of our 2 year old help her?
Will the judge take the childcare and work situation into consideration? She works as an accountant full time and i will be gone for 6 months. We have no family around. This is first offense and she had a clear record previously. She was arrested in NH but has a Maine license. She has to drive 5 minutes over the border into NH to get to work in Portsmouth.
It is very important that you retain an attorney for this matter. He/she will be able to help obtain the best possible...
