Do police have access to blood taken at the hospital when a doctor took it?
I was driving and in an accident on Saturday night. I was conscious after the accident but taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure afterwards. At the hospital the doctor came in and took blood prior to the police arrival. I was told the sample was to make sure I was ok - the accident was on the severe side. Do the police have access to that blood sample for testing? When the police did show up they never mentioned the sample or anything along those lines of testing.
Yes, they have the right to that sample
If the cops come will I be prosecuted through guilt by association? How?
I am a minor from Greenwich, CT. I do not drink. There is a party tonight where there will be drinking. Will i get prosecuted for being there if the cops show up? Please let me know!
Sometimes all kids get lumped together, right? Not fair, but it happens from time to time. DO NOT DRINK - not even a...
Negligence, gross negligence or reckless?
Please consider this scenario and let me know how you might expect a judge to rule: The owner of a property has hired an independent contractor to do some work that involves the cutting of metal fixtures. After the work was finished, two hours later, a fire that was smoldering in an enclosed space destroyed the building. Causation is clearly the contractor. However, immediately after the contractors left, the owner went to lock up and noticed a burnt or burning metal smell. Under testimony, owner states that she associated this smell with the work of cutting metal that had occured immediately prior. The workers also testified that there was a burning or burnt metal smell while the work was being done, as is normal. They testified that they smelled no odor upon leaving. *more*
Does not sound like Gross negligence or recklessness. One could reasonably expect a smell from cutting such as this...

Will this DUI charge stick as I was home and nowhere near my vehicle when police came?
So here's my situation, I hit a parked car right by my home and left it parked in a lot next to where I live. I was home for about 20 min or so (washed up) when Police came and brought me out to my car. The Officer asked if I had been drinking to which I replied "I was drinking at home" the Officer then did his sobriety test and proceeded to place me under arrest (no Miranda rights until I was already at the station.) The Officer stated that he called malarkey because it takes 30 min for alcohol to be absorbed by the body and that my eyes were glossy?? Anyway, I refused breathalyzer & blood work. When I obtained my Police report alot of areas were literally whited out and said I was only being charged with evading. Then when I went to court the prosecutor had a totally different report charging me for possesion of marijuana (under legal limit CT), evading, failure to maintain lane, and DUI
