Minor in Consumption
I was arrested for Minor in Consumption and blew a 0.041 on BAC. There were others in front of me and there was not a break between testing. We were not read our Miranda rights when we were told we were going to jail. Is this not a requirement when being questioned, ect? No alcohol was in hand just a open house party raided by police because of noise complaint. Just trying to get some information before my court date as I am ashamed I made a poor decision as I am a college student on the deans list and being promoted into the honor society as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I think you are suggesting that the equipment was not applied according to the guidelines and you may have blown a...
Can I stop license suspension.
I got charged with PoM2 and got youthful offender. I also just got a great job offer in another state that. Would require me to live on my own and would need a vehichle. Is there anybody or anything that I could do to not have the suspension put in place? My referral office is already transferring my program to Florida.
No. A plea or adjudication as a 'Youthful Offender' to any drug crime in the state of Alabama requires the Department...

Are most people in Troy, Al given jail time as a penalty for a second offense minor consumption?
I was arrested in Troy, Al for a minor in consumption. I wrecked my car and refused to take a breath test. I was given the option to blow the next morning, and I blew a .02. This would be my second offense. I pleaded youthful offender on my first offense, and I completed the pre trial diversion program. I was just wondering if I would go to level 2 classes or if I was looking at jail time. Thank you very much for your help.
There are lots of unanswered facts here - are you still on probation from the first offense? If so, the court has the...

Once my DUI fines are paid can I get my license back despite a warrant?
I got a DUI in Florida several years ago and my Alabama license was suspended. I followed the initial procedures and got my license back originally. I later missed a payment on my fines and it was suspended again. I had moved back to Alabama and was doing my probation by phone as I was a first time offender and low risk. I thought my probation was complete and it appears it wasn't because I have a Florida warrant for failure to complete my probation. Any time I've had a traffic violation Alabama police have noted the warrant and told me to take care of it when I can. I'm about to pay the last of my old FL fines which in theory should release my license to be reinstated in Alabama. Will they block my reinstatement in FL based on the warrant? I plan to take care of it after getting my DL.
I am not licensed in Florida, so out of respect for any answer offered by an experienced attorney licensed in Florida...
