What is the penalty if they find meth in your system thru a ua, what is the charge?
I was stopped for not using my turn signal and he gave me sobriety check and I had a pbt of .03 and he said I was under the influence of something else, so he charged me with a dui which is my fourth offense. he took me in and I did a ua. my main question is can they charge me with a felony drug possession for meth in my body fluids?
If they charged you with an offense, you should get a lawyer to defend you, rather than focus on the worst case scenario
Can I get my DUI dropped if I was sober but had marijuana in my system from the night before? ?
I was coming home from my girlfriends house and was really tired from working all day and I happens to be swerving a tad. I was pulled over and the officer assumed I was high when I wasn't. He did tests and I guess I failed a few but I know I was 100% sober. So I was then later arrested and they did blood and urine tests which I know is going to come back positive. I was just wondering how I can get the DUI dropped cause I know I was sober at the time. The cop didn't find anything in my car that related to marijuana at al and I blew zeros twice. So I'm just wondering how I can get a DUI from that. Thank you for reading my into my situation.

Should I take my dui case to trial considering my circumstances?
I was told I took a klonopin, later that day I got pulled over and I failed my soberiety tests (not the breathalyzer I don't drink) i told the cop I had taken a klonopin he took me to jail for a dui. The next day I got out and I found out it wasn't a klonopin that I took, it wasn't a prescription drug. My blood tests came back clean but I am still getting charged with a dui. They offered me a plea of 180 days 160 suspended but I don't want to take it I don't want this on my record period. I DO have a record and I am on parole if that changes anything.
You need an attorney if you don’t already have one. An attorney can analyze your case entirely of your options. You...
What's the difference between a wet reckless and a DUI? Should I try for this as a plea deal?
I'm not sure if SD allows wet reckless, but it's my 1st DUI and I am trying very hard to get into a medical program and I would literally do months in jail if it ment getting it reduced from the DUI charge.
South Dakota doesn’t have a wet reckless, although it does have reckless driving. Sometimes the prosecution will...

I got my 3rd dui. But I was given a sentence in two states?
I received my 3rd dui 4 years ago in South Dakota where I was living for 3 years but haven't switched my ID. My first 2 dui's were in Minnesota where I had my license. I was given to sentences for this. South Dakota revoked my license for a year and some suspended jail time. Minnesota gave me all sorts of fines 3 years no license and 3 years of the driver inerterlock program. I've done everything but the interlock program. Is there anyway I can not do that. I don't know if it's legal that I got 2 different sentences for one crime.
Since the state of Minnesota issued you a driver's license, their administrative rules apply to your license and you....
