How long can they make my husband sit in the drunk tank on drug charges before seeing a judge?
My husband was arrested Thursday night and booked around 7:30 pm, it is now Sunday morning and he has still not seen a judge because he's been out for a couple weeks. He's been charged with paraphernalia, maintaining a common nuisance, dealing marijuana, destroying evidence, and one more that I can't remember. He had a court date set for Friday, but it was canceled because the judge was a no show, so they have another one scheduled for tomorrow morning so he can be read his charges and get a bond reduction. I'm just wondering if the judge continues to not show up, how long can they detain him like that in the drunk tank on a full cash bond without being able to obtain a lawyer or anything?
If the judge is sick or cannot be present, the court should take steps to get a substitute judge. I'm sure it was a one-...

Can I be accused of rape when I was intoxicated?
So I was intoxicated over at another person's house but they were intoxicated too but they started to fall unconscious and I didn't realize they were until a bit afterwards so I stopped but I didn't have sex with them. They found specimen inside of them though. Idk what to do bc I wasn't thinking bout it bc I was impaired from the drugs. I didn't have intentions in having sex either before I arrived there sober. I just went over to party with them, nothing more. I never committed a crime before this either and I'm young with a good background. And I already have the love of my life. I'm starting to develop mental problems bc of this and me thinking bout my future. What can I do and will the prosecutor go through with it?
I would not post anything else on any public forums and immediately hire an attorney or ask for a public defender.
DUI but not pulled over?
I was arrested for a DUI (1st time for me) while I was outside of my car but was followed for a brief period. I failed the breathalyzer but had also just thrown up right before the test, which I've read would alter the test. In addition, my Miranda Rights were never given to me, my car was never looked at and my friends were not interviewed. Do I have a shot of getting this dismissed?
People frequently ask about getting a case dismissed without giving anywhere near the facts that we need to provide an...
