Underage DUI & Child Endangerment
I am 18, and my nephew and I went sitting in my truck eating in a restaurts parking lot when a police officer came over and wanted to give me a beathalizer because he saw empty beer cans in the truck bed. I blew 0.04 and he charged with DUI and Child Endangerment. Is that possible consider I myself wasnt even 21 yet? Do u think it will stick in court considering I only blew 0.04?

Virginia DWI expungement
Two years ago I received a DWI charge which was nolle prossed in exchange for a guilty plea to civil refusal. No other lifetime arrest/criminal history. SOL has tolled on the nolle'd charge. Have filed an expungement petition in Circuit Court for the DWI charge, submitted fingerprints, etc. Waiting for background check to arrive in court. Should I hire a lawyer to handle the expungement hearing? Is the CA likely to object, and cite the refusal as a reason to deny the expungement?
Generally, prosecutors do not object to expungements. However, In Fairfax County, anything can happen! Since...

Can I personally see a dash cam recording?
About 6 weeks ago, I was pulled over for swerving. The officer had me exit the vehicle and perform several alcohol-related tests. I am disabled and told the officer before any tests that I could not (ever) do them. The entire night was very strange and the officer did not conduct himself according to protocol (if not LAW). I was provided with a PD and a Request for Discovery was made for the recording, which the police Dprt. said they have. After 6 weeks, finally yesterday my PD says she reviewed the recording, and presented me with a transcript which is almost-completely false. I told the PD I personally want the recording. I fear something shady is going on, but cannot afford my own attorney. Advice?
Your counsel who is your eyes and ears reviewed the recording. counsel can request that the recording be reviewed again...
Do i even have a chance? 1st offense dui Virginia
charged with my 1st offense DUI. My roadside breathalizer test was 0.15. and one hour later my BAC was .08. My neighbor is a Lutenant for my local police dept and my neighbor. He offered to " look into" my charges. He felt he could get things reduced to a reckless and not to hire an attorney. Fast forward to today...court is on Tuesday the sept the 8th. The assistant district attorney called me and went over thier plea offer. She said the case had no flaws in her opinion and that she should give me no break. They plea is a reduction to wet wreckless. I would have to attend ASAP,interlock 6 months, 6 months loss of license and 250.00 fine. Basically DUI without the actual charge on my record. . Should i ask for a continence? Should i get a lawyer and fight it?
You are accused of a DUI. The government has offered to amend the charge to reckless driving in exchange for your...
