    Boy Scouts Hid Hundreds of Accusations of Child Molestation: The Los Angeles Times found that the Irving-based Boy Scouts of America kept a confidential "perversion file" with information on accused sex offenders whom the organization often forced to quietly resign while keeping their crimes "under wraps." Of the 500 instances in which the Scouts learned of alleged abuse before it was reported to the police, in about 400 cases there is no record of the Scouts reporting the abuses to authorities.

Would I need to do an ALR hearing if I gave blood due to a warrant and it's below .08?
During waiting on my trial on my first DWI 2 months after I worked a 12 hour shift and after work me and a friend went to a bar to drink. Only drank 2 standard drinks. This was from 11 to 130 at night. I then dropped him at home and then started driving home. I realized I was falling asleep so I pulled over into a parking lot and went to sleep in park. Next thing I know it's 330 and I'm being awaken by a firefighter tapping on my car door who was checking if I was ok. A cop then came next and asked if I drank anything. I was honest and said 2. I then said A to Z, C to W, and 52 to 23 backwards correctly. He tried to get me to do the nystagmus test but I said no to field sobriety tests after my experience with the first one. He then said blood but I also declined. He then took me to jail and went to get a warrant. He didn't get me for a blood test till 8 in the morning though. My question is though since there's no video of me driving (the police car wasn't parked near mine so there's no dashcam) and since I'm waiting on a blood test that will be way below the limit will the ALR hearing suspend my license if waiting on a warranted blood test?
Yes, you need to request an ALR hearing because you refused to give a sample of your blood, when asked to do so by the...

Can they charge this as a felony enhancement using the set aside out of state dui?

I was arrested for DWI (misdemeanor) over two years ago. The DA never filed a formal complaint. Am I off the hook?
After arrest I bonded out and got an attorney. My attorney received the police report of the arrest but there has been no other correspondence form the court or the DA. I never received a trial date, never entered a plea of not guilty. Looking through court records there is no evidence the DA filed anything against me.
Since you have hired a lawyer, the best person to answer this question is them. They presumably have all of the facts...
Any chance this evidence can be suppressed? (DWI)
I was pulled over for speeding in denton county and the deputy conducted a field sobriety test. After he made me walk the line he asked me to follow his finger but i stopped the test as I remembered it was always better to refuse the FST. He immediately arrested me and took me to a hospital and worked on a warrant for a chemical test that took a ridiculously long time (about 4 1/2 hours in handcuffs). I've never been arrested before and I never knew about the implied consent laws and that he was supposed to give me the option to consent to the chemical test. It's been 6 months since that night and I finally got my arraignment papers and now i'm looking for a good lawyer and i'm wondering if the evidence can be suppressed?
There are several different points along the timeline of a DWI investigation that could pose possible opportunities for...
