Have my civil rights been violated?
In a random traffic stop, I was given a PBT and my BAC was below the legal limit so no DUI charge was given. The trooper later told my employer I had traces of alcohol on my breath resulting in termination of employment. Does this violate my right to privacy since no DUI was given?
It might, but what's your remedy? Sounds like small town USA to me and you're frankly SOL.
Can an attourney represent me on a misdemeanor probation violation(for fines for dwi) if I'm willing to fully pay the fines?
I had a few run-ins with the law and I was terrible 18-22..then I ran away..I grew up, I'm starting to have a life now. (25) I really want to begin again. I'm living abroad. If I can clear the online record off, I can stay at the company I'm working. I want to fully pay the fines and just have a lawyer represent me and knock the probation violation off..as it would cost 1,500$+ in plane flights plus the attourney.
It is possible that an attorney can take care of that for you. But there is no guarantee that the court and/or...
Getting another license in a different state after relocating with a DUI?
I received a DUI in Kansas. My hearing for diversion is set for December. Im a first time offender. I want to know if i can get my license in Arkansas because Im a resident now. I have a clearance letter from the state of Kansas and that will allow me to take the test in Arkansas. Will Arkansas allow me to take the written test and get my drivers license? Secondly, will I be penalized in Arkansas if Im declared suspended for 30 days in Kansas. Can Arkansas impose their rules on me? Primarily I need to know if I can get the Arkansas license. Will I have to tell them about the pending review of charges in Kansas?
As long as you are not suspended in Kansas, then Arkansas is allowed to give you a license if they want, based upon the...
Can I be charged with drugs found in a vehicle that doesnt belong to me and I was no where around when it was searched.
Upon exiting a walmart one night, I noticed that my friends vehicle was being searched as he sat on the ground watching. I walked up and asked the friend and police what was going on. I was patted down and told that I was under arrest for drugs found in the car. I told them I have been in the store shopping and I have nothing to do with any drugs found in the car. My friend, who was a lawyer as well as the owner of the car said, "they have probable cause to search cause they found a drug pipe in a basket in the store". The officer walked up and placed me in cuffs saying Im under arrest for drugs found in the car. I was totally shocked because I had no drugs nor was I anywhere present when all this occured. No drugs were in my possession when I was patted down but was told im under arrest cause drugs were found in a bag on my side of his car. We were not pulled over nor was I around when the search started. I was arrested for all of this while the owner of the car and the bag was let go. I had no idea of any drugs or what led them to harrass my friend. I was unaware he had drugs in the car but more so as to why I got arrested for his drugs, found in his car, when I was not present.
Yes, you can be charged. The question is, can you be convicted? I would immediately subpoena for all videos from that...
What are the possible outcomes for an FTA on a misdemeanor DUI charge?
I was arrested for a misdemeanor DUI charge 16 years ago. I never went back to court and just recently found out that I have a failure to appear in Arkansas. How can I resolve this without going to jail?
You can hire a lawyer to ask the judge to quash the warrant. If that doesn't work you will have to turn yourself in to...
How long does the court have to charge someone a DUI?
Back in 2015, I was arrested and charged with DUI. On February of 2016 was my first court appearance and the prosecutor asked for a continuance. In June of 2016 we went back to court and again the prosecutor asked for a continuance for no witnesses showing up. In July of 2016, the state again asked for a continuance because the arresting officer was unavailable. In August of 2016, all parties were present, no witnesses or the officer were asked any questions and the judge stated that he would look over the evidence and render a verdict. That was over a year ago and still no word from the judge. At what point can I file a motion to dismiss? Have my civil rights to a speedy trial been broken because of the length in time it was from the moment I was arrested to almost two years waiting for a verdict?
I recommend that you contact an Arkansas criminal defense attorney about your situation. It appears that there was no...
How can I request a court ordered drug test of the custodial parent?
My ex wife has started acting very strange in the way that makes it look and see like she is using drugs the way she is talking acting and even scratching herself all over. Is there a way to have a court ordered drug test.
You could petition the juvenile court in your area and ask but it will be an uphill battle.
