How can I beat a public intoxication charge when I was not intoxicated
two of my friends were walking they were hammered from drinking but I didn't even drink and all three of us were arrested for public intoxication. I could have passed a breathalyzer test but I didn't not receive one nor did I turn one down.
Hire an attorney to help fight the case for you.
I received a dui roughly 10 years ago. How long will it stay on my "record"
I recieved a dui in lawton ok/Fort sill when I was 21. I have never seen or heard a mention on it on any employment background check all these years. I was just curious as to how long it will stay on my "record". Or where to look to research up on it? Thank you.

I got a ticket for drinking in public, the policeman didn't say I was intoxicated, and didn't give me a Breathalyzer or any test
I had been shopping all day with my husband, and we had bought a six pack of beer and put in the cooler. I was tired and was drinking one of the beers. Because one of my husbands headlights burned out a state trooper stopped us and gave me a ticket for drinking in public. I had a police sergeant in a different county tell me once it was legal in the state of Arkansas for a passenger to drink a beer in the car as long as the driver was not drinking anything, and he wasn't. What are my resources?

What is the procedure for a suspended license in Arkansas?
I received a warning letter about 6 months ago from the DMV informing me that I was approaching too many points on my driving record, and I was at risk for having my license suspended. I just received my 4th speeding ticket in 15 months. How should I handle this? Should I just plead guilty, pay the fine, and wait to receive a letter with my hearing date to determine if my license will be suspended? If it does get suspended, will I get a restricted license to drive to and from work, and to take my children to and from school, and school activities? I am a single parent, and I commute 30 minutes to and from work each day.I have so many people telling me that I can "argue about this, and fight the system" But, I'm just not that type of person. I know I'm guilty of speeding. :-(
Fight the ticket. If you win, no additional points on your record. Good luck.
