Can I sue the city and get him fired if found not guilty.
I was sitting on a church bench waiting for my girlfriend to get clothes from her moms. I text her & ask her to run me sum cookies out. She did. An off duty police officer approached me & said he was told I just made a drug deal with a woman. I explained to him that it was a bag of cookies. He wanted to search me but said he couldn't because he was off duty. He made me stay there while he called another officer from another city to come search me. I was searched & nothing was found but 2 needles. He wrote me a for drug paraphanalia (off duty) out of another cities ticket book. I went on my way & watched him walk to his house w/ my needles. I'm riding my bike 4 days later, he stops me, says he tested my needles & they were positive for methadone & amphetamines. I do neither, I do suboxone. He tore the ticket up & took me to jail for possession. (6 days I was there). What can I do? He was off duty & couldn't search me, but can make me stay & write s ticket. He took my needles home w/ him (overnight) he could have put anything in them. I go to the needle exchange & had 2 unused needles. He says they tested positive. He failed a drug test for the police dept for marajuana. what can I d

Are there any West Virginia Lawyers out there with enough Guts to take on the crooked State Government ?
I was raised in a Country where when you went to court and the charges were dismissed the case was over. HOW can W.V. DMV hold there own Kangaroo court in their office not a courtroom with no legal Judge present after the legal court dismissed the charges and three years later pull your license? I thought this was America.
West Virginia has a two tier system on a DUI case in that the criminal court and the administrative court are two...
Can DMV override criminal court

What will happen if I don't show up to court?
I over dosed twice within a week a cop told my husband in order to keep cps away he needed to get a dvp on me. So he did. When we went to court the first time I was so high the judge found me incompetent and awarded me a guardian of lightum. I was suppose to go into some type of treatment. I can't get in anywhere. I've still been using and my attorney said I will get tested. I don't like this attorney she's rude so I've not told her I Cldnt get in anywhere or that I'm gonna test dirty. I'm suppose to go to court later today. My husband isn't showing up so that will get the dvp dismissed but my attorney says that since the judge knows I'm a drug addict that I still need to be there and that is wld be bad if I don't show up. Idk what to do.
Not showing up may cause there to be a warrant issued. Find a program without delay and speak to counsel.

It seems very strange that this exact same question was asked under CA law and now from a WV location. Thus, none of us...
Arrested for a DUI with a negative breathalyzer
I was driving for work (class A truck) and went through a yellow light that turned red. When the officer pulled me over he immediately asked if I had been drinking. Which I denied and explained that I was returning from Michigan. He did a field sobriety test and said I was "wobbly" on one leg which I explained I had been driving 10 hrs. I had a negative breathalyzer and he arrested me anyways, impounded the truck and was held without bond 17 hours. I demanded a blood test. I am now out on PR awaiting trial for a DUI. How is this legal and how do I proceed? What's the likelyhood of this being thrown out and can I counter sue? Since I cannot work until this is cleared up.
When you say the breathalyzer test was negative, what do you mean? Was it 0.0%? Did you give a urine sample for drugs?...
