My lawyer filed a motion for me trying to get my DUI conviction reduced to a violation, i was just curious how that really benefits me.. I got my DUI in 2012 in NH and already have my license back.

I burped; was told to wait 10 minutes before the BAC test. Was supposed to wait at least 20 minutes. How can I prove this?
I have asked my attorney to obtain evidence that I am telling the truth. He says he doesn't know if they video in that room. How on earth am I supposed to prove that I am telling the truth. Officer did not afford me my rights. Not fair!

Is it entrapment to ask someone to come outside and speak to you and then arrest them for being drunk in public?
My son was drinking inside his home. There was a confrontation outside and police were called. The officer came to his door and asked him to come outside to speak to him. He thought he did not have a choice since it was a police officer that requested him to come outside.

The officer said "I guess you should have listened to your girlfriend when she told you not to come outside. You are under arrest for being drunk in public". Is this legal?
Unfortunately, I have seen this ridiculous fact pattern more than once. The case will come down to the question of...
