What are my rights at a sobriety checkpoint and what is the best way to handle an encounter with an officer at said checkpoint?
Drove into a sobriety checkpoint. Did not notice if everyone was being stopped or if there was profiling. Am over 30/M, look about 25, was alone. Trooper approached vehicle, asked "how are you doing?" Put vehicle in park, turned on overhead light, rolled window down all the way, did not turn engine off, put hands on wheel. He asked again, I said "fine, how can I help you?" He asked if I had anything to drink, I said "no". He asked where I was heading. I told him (town name). He said that is an exciting place and that he has spent a lot of time there and he asked what part I lived in, I told him and he said again that he has spent a lot of time there and asked what part I lived in. I told him not the deep part. He let me go. I feel like he was profiling me as poor white trash. What's best?
Nothing. You were not arrested or charged. Nothing in your post indicates anything other than a routine sobriety...

How long can the WV OAH take to render a decision after a hearing for an aggravated DUI?
My daughter was arrested 7/19/14 for aggravated DUI. She received notice on 8/21/14 that her license would be revoked and she would have to participate in the test and lock program effective 9/28/14. We petitioned the OAH for a hearing within the time frame. We were granted a hearing in Nov. 2014 which was postponed to Feb. 4, 2014 as requested by their attny. We had the hearing and now it has been 17 months and we JUST received notice that we "lost". Can they take that long to render a decision? Is she really going to be punished for staying "good" for 2 years?
But one of "many" reasons the WV legislature introduced legislation this last term to eliminate the administrative...
How do you use your "Right to Travel" to beat a "driving on a suspended" case?
My husband got arrested for driving on a suspended(dui). However, the constitution states that drivers licenses are only required for drivers who drive for a living/compensation and that every American has the right to travel freely on public roads, by automobile and no license is required. It also says that no state laws shall over rule or take this right because that would interfere with a persons right to life , liberty and the pursuit of happiness, which means that every American has the right to drive without a license as long as they are not getting paid?Am I wrong?
I am sorry ma'am, but yes you are wrong and your legal analysis is wholly inaccurate. A lawful driver's license is...
Do I have any defense to have the first DUI dropped off my record due to the fact I completed everything in October?
I've was charged with my second DUI on December 5th, but I went through the deferral program for the first DUI, so this is a first offense DUI. I blew a .07 and I am 20 years of age. I have records that i finished all of my classes and reports on October 12th of 2014, but the courts didn't receive the work until January 5th. The prosecutor has offered me the choice of dropping the first one and receiving the second one on my record or going to trial and leaving the first one on my record.
The hidden, wholly unfair and misleading aspect of West Virginia's deferral program -which is the exact same as most...
