Is my boyfriend being charged with a misdemeanor if he didn't have to sign any paperwork at the scene?
He got pulled over and the police officer smelled marajuana. He admitted to having a small amount and gave it to them. They also made him do a series of tests and deemed him unsuitable to drive so I had to pick him up. He didn't know if he was being charged. The officer didn't give him details but said he could or would be charged and could have his license suspended for a year. Should he have signed something or is he going to receive something in the mail?
Contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. He will likely be receiving something in the mail regarding...

How many vials of blood are required to be drawn in an OVI blood draw?
I was arrested for OVI on 9/4/15 and the officer offered me a blood, breath or urine sample, and I chose to provide a blood sample. The officer took me to the hospital where the nurse drew ONE vial of blood, the officer put it in an evidence bag and we left. He cited me for OVI and then released me. He received the results on 10/13/15 and he filed charges on 10/14/15. How can I possible obtain an untainted sample? There is only one vile of blood, and the crime lab had to use it to test it. Shouldn't the officer have directed the nurse to draw 2 vials of blood so that one vile was preserved for the defense? is there enough prejudice to have the results thrown out?
As long as the original vile has been preserved, you can still require independent testing. There are strict...
In OHIO when is a person considered under "arrest"?
I was pulled over for OVI and the officer made me do field sobriety tests, then put me in cuffs, took me back to the police station. He read the BMV 2255 form that stated I was under arrest, and made me submit to a breathalyzer. He released me to my family shortly after. Was I under arrest under Ohio law?
Whether you are under arrest depends on the circumstances. The actual question you should ask is "were you in custody?"...
Was there probable cause to pull us over? Also they had not breathalyzed me, so does that make my case any better.
My girlfriend and I were walking home from a formal. We are both 20 and had a small amount of alcohol. Upon walking back the police had come up along side of us in their cruiser and asked if everything was okay. To both of our responses being "yes," then had then proceeded to pull ahead and off to the side of the road. They had got out of their car and asked us to come over. They had then asked us if we had been drinking and for IDs. Looking back on it we were not stumbling and when I had responded, I had only had two or three beers the entire night, so I was not slurring. I did have some mud on my pants around my knees from when I knelt down earlier.
The existence of probable cause to detain a person for an investigatory stop is a case-by-case type of situation. From...
