Why did prosecutor not charge my former friend with child endangerment for DWI with her 2 babies in the car?
I love my friend but she really needs help. She told me that she was drinking a lot one night and while driving home she ended up crashing into a ditch, cops stopped and cited her with a DWI, all while her 2 babies were in her car. She went to court and got charged with a DWI. She has a disposition hearing in a few months. But they still haven't brought up any charges of child endangerment. I thought that Arkansas is very strict about pursuing charges of child endangerment when someone is drinking while driving and has minor children in the car under a certain age. Plus I don't think that there was even a child services case opened because of this. This is her first offense, only because it's her first time getting caught. I fear that she is going to do it again.
There is still time for the prosecutor to add these charges if he or she desires. If you feel compelled you can file a...

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.

What am I likely to be sentenced on the pending charges?
I am being charged with DWI - drugs ( first offence), careless and prohibited driving, and possession of a non narcotic prescription medication without a prescription. I fell sleep behind the wheel of my vehicle and hit a culvert flipping my truck 7 times. I was not asked if I needed medical attention and I asked for it several times. I was taken to jail and spent 3 days until i was able to make bail. There were not drugs found at the scene and I was not under the influences at that current time. Yes there were things in my system but it was from 2 days prior. There were no other vehicles involved in the accident. Since the accident I have found out that I have seizures. I have had 3 since the accident and I believe that they could have been the cause of the wreck. I cannot afford legal counsel and I am being forces to represent myself. All charges are misdemeanors.

What is DWI with Drugs and refusal to blood test ?what are the odds of beating it.
My son is charged with DWI Drugs and refusal to take a blood test. He wrecked his car and I was there. He was not under the influence of alcohol, he blew 0 and they searched his car and found nothing. He had gotten stitches that day in his knee. they came out in the wreck. He could not walk the line and he has a condition in which his pupils stay large and he was taken to jail. I want to know if this is proper and what his chances are of being found not guilty or lesser charge. He said he was bright lighted and something hit his windshield. His windshield was shattered at the rearview mirror. The state trooper said he grabbed it when he wrecked.
Your son is going to need to hire a DUI lawyer to fight this case. These are all questions he can ask that lawyer...
