Can I get this kicked out of court for illegal search and seizure
I got stopped the other night and the police officer came to my passenger window I put the window down and he set there and talked to me for approximately two to three minutes then he ran my license then he came to my driver's window and said he smelled marijuana I got caught with a little bit of meth and a meth pipe I was not high he said he thought I was high because I kept wrinkling my forehead because he was standing behind me and I had to lean back to talk to him he didn't smell it on the right side of the car but after he checked my license he smelled it on the left side I don't believe he smelled it is this illegal search. Does he have the right to even ask to search my car or me without probable cause. He found it on me in my pocket there was nothing else in the car and there was nothing for him to see or smell is this probable cause.
First do not discuss this with anyone who is not your attorney or one you are seeking to hire. Anything say to anyone...

Missouri DWI?
Lawyers often preach, "don't blow, fight the charge in court" yet this seems to open up a whole new can of worms since the results are normally the same: SATOP, probation, etc., yet you end up spending more money for the BAC refusal to get your license back. Is the pitch to refuse to blow simply a ploy to make more money for DWI lawyers?
I have not heard lawyers preach that. What I have heard lawyers whose opiioins I respect say, is that if you have no...

Does MO offer ARD for first offense DWI? Since her case is so delayed would the charges be reduced or dismissed?
My daughter had similar situation in MO in Feb 2016. Left the roadway with damage to her car but no injuries. Breathalizer reading 0.12. She was driving in MO. Living as a graduate student in IL. DL issued from WI. She gave both her IL address and the WI address. We appeared at her court date but were told they had no paperwork. The clerk thought the case must have been sent to another court and we would receive notice of a new court date. She moved to MO in august 2016 and had her mail forwarded to new address. She obtained a MO drivers license. In July 2017 she received a letter of failure to appear with license revocation and warrant due to court notice being undeliverable. The court date had been Sept 2016. She visited the St. Charles station and was given a new court date of Dec. 21, 2017
It would be best to discuss the case directly with a DWI attorney in St. Louis. There are several possibilities for the...
Is there a statute of limitations on a dui in Missouri?
Many years ago, maybe 8 or so, I received a dui. Pled guilty, was ordered probation, Satop and driving course to get my full driving privileges back. Due to life circumstances, I didn’t get around to doing that, but I did do my probation period with no issues. I am now working on getting my license back and am unable to find my case online. Is there a statute of limitations on getting things done or should I continue to go to my satop things?
There is no statute of limitations on DUI's. Some states had and may (still have?) laws that effectively "erased" a...
