How can I protect myself after false positive drug patch test?
A friend of mine, who is on probation, had a drug patch put on her shoulder for a week. It came back positive and she is 100% certain that she hasn't used for a whole year. She has done a few random UA's before and after the week she was wearing the drug patch which all came up negative. Even though the drug patch is known to be 65% prone to giving false positive results, her P.O. doesn't believe her and has filed papers for violation of probation. She has turned her life around, regained full custody of her son, has maintained her own residence and has been at her current job for the last 3 years. She will discharge from probation in a few months but this false positive result can ruin everything she been working for. She offered to do daily UA's to prove she is not using but her P.O. said she has enough evidence she needs to prove she is in violation and told her its out of her hands now. Now she has to wait for a court date and hopefully wont be picked up at her home by the U.S. Marshalls. What can she do at this point to keep from losing everything?
She can get her own independent test if too much time has not passed. Some tests, depending on the substance, can go...
What, if anything is there any possibility to get out of a DUI caused by slippery road conditions and not being pulled over?
My brother and I were driving home, about a mile from our house we got turned around into a snow drift caused by slippery/icy road conditions. We were in the process of pushing the vehicle out when two cops drove by. They didn't help us they immediately went to check both of our license and left the vehicle in the road (which was dangerous to other driver's passing) my brother was then cited for DUI and taken away. I ended up helping them get the vehicle out after waiting in the back of a patrol car.

How likely is it to prove a cop is lying in his statement?
I got a DUI and planned on fighting it but in the officers statement he wrote that I called my lawyer and when off the phone he asked if I’d like to place another call in which I supposedly said no. When really I called my dad and when asked if I wanted to call my lawyer I said no. This occurred in Alberta not in the US
it is very unlikely you will prevail. I"m not sure this makes a difference in a dui defense anyway.

Moving question to criminal defense category to get answers from local lawyers.
Can a person be charged with a dui almost 2 months after the original person who was charged claimed not guilty?
Originally a dui was issued and the person plead not guilty, "it wasn't me". The judge had the officers review the tapes and one officer recognized the defendant personally, confirming it was them on tape. The defendant went back to court cried to the judge and got it dismissed. However, the arresting officer said the defendant did look like the person he arrested. Anyhow, I was arrested another month later on a false warrant where they handed me the ticket in my name. I was charged with no evidence or witnesses. How can they do this?
It sounds like you need to hire a local criminal attorney immediately.
