Incorrect or missing information on a police officers statement
I live in Ohio but was arrested in Indiana on a lake for BWI (Boating while intoxicated). I just got a copy of the police report and some minor things that the officer stated were incorrect but the largest mistake was that he stated he "handcuffed me and walked me to his state issued truck" ... a little hard to do when we were on the lake. Additionally he left out all of the information with regard to the 3 others on my boat, his requirement of them taking a breathalyzer AND administering one after advising them that they could not move the boat unless someone was sober; the fact that he stopped me for a stern light not illuminated after sunset was not mentioned again in the report nor that he left 3 passengers on a disabled boat with no working lights after dark in the water.
The errors are minor and will be talking points for the criminal defense attorney you hire to defend you in this case!!
Is a statement given to police while intoxicated valid in california?
My boyfriend and I got into a fight while in California. I was extremely intoxicated and don't remember most of the details. He was arrested for domestic violence based on statements I made. I don't remember what statements I made to the police and not sure why they charged him. We are Ohio residents and I really don't want him going to court for something I can barely recall. He has no previous history of abuse and has never done anything to me before. Do I have any way to stop the DA from prosecuting?
California will admit any statement as evidence if it was voluntarily given. The question as to whether it is a true...
What are the Ohio state laws for driving underage intoxicated people?
I am 19 and so are my 3 friends. If I stay sober all night but my 3 friends get drunk and I drive them home, am I doing something illegal? Someone told me it was illegal to drive around intoxicated minors, even if I'm sober and there's no open containers in my vehicle.
In theory, I suppose you could be considered complicit in their behavior because you would be knowing facilitating by...

How, if possible, could my name, address, or personal information obtained from the officers' investigation be used negatively?
Ok so last night I was with a few friends driving around playing Pokémon Go. We got pulled over and they searched our person and the vehicle. The only evidence they recovered was a crown royal draw-string bag with a bag of marijuana contained inside, which belonged to the driver of the vehicle. After the officers finished their search, they took all four of our cell phone numbers and social security numbers to verify identity. Long story short, the only person of the four of us that was charged with a minor misdemeanor possession of marijuana was the driver. Basically my question is, will this information be published in a newspaper or otherwise be made available to the public, including my name or address, without my knowledge or consent even though I was not charged with a criminal offense?
There may be mention of you in a police report. Those are public record, but personal information is typically redacted....
Reinstatement of a suspended license
I recently paid to have my license reinstated after a minor marijuana charge. I have paid all court costs/fines and the reinstatement fee to the BMV. I have the actual ID license that is the same before and after the suspension. It is not expired etc. Is this a valid license if I were to be stopped while driving by a police officer?
Is the suspension time up? You can always call the BMV and ask if you are valid.
