Is it illegal for a police officer to have two people use same breathalyzer straw while pulled over?
I was driving with a couple of friends an got pulled over because someone called in and said we were speeding. However we were not speeding anywhere around the where the cop pulled us over at so they had no probable cause to pull us over. They believed we were under the influence, so they gave me and two of my friends a field sobriety test and made us blow into the breathalyzer but made me and my friend blow into the same straw without changing them out or collaborating it. We all failed and I was charged with DWI and my friends were charged with MIPs. That is unsanitary and inaccurate.

What all should be stated in a letter to the Prosecuting Attorney if I am trying to get charges dropped?
Me and my boyfriend were in a car accident, and I got hurt. I refused to press charges, but now the state has charged him with felony assault. I talked to the assistant handling my case, and she said the most I could do is write a letter and try to get the charges dropped, and make it clear that I will not cooperate. My only question is what exactly to say in the letter to hopefully make it effective.
You and more importantly, your boyfriend should really consult with a criminal defense attorney before you do anything...
DWI case was dismissed by Judge and has now been set aside.
What reason would a Judge need to set aside a Dismissal for a DWI because the Prosecuting Attorney didn't show up for the case? Our attorney stated after the dismissal that the judge would have to have a real good reason to reopen the case; the DA would have be in an accident or on his death bed. The case has been set aside and they set a new trial date has been set, however the DA states that he will now be on vacation do before the trial date is reset here is my final offer DWI-amend to careless and imprudent - $350.00 plus costs, Failure to yield to an emergency vehicle to a parking ticket-amend to illegal parking $100.00 plus costs! Failure to to drive in a single lane - Nolle Prosse, (I believe then mean they'll drop it), 2 points assessment on license. We won the refusal to blow case
Read all the orders, the one dismissing, and the one setting aside the dismissal. That should bear some light on this.
Can I sue the state of Missouri and Guardian interlock for not honoring a court order and suspending my license?
On April 22, 2014 I had to have a interlock device on my vehicle for 6 months, originally it was from may 10th until November 10th since I didn't have a vehicle, but I got a car sooner than that so the judge amended it from then to April 22nd to October 22 2014, well, October 22 got here and went and showed the shop the court order and they took it out, now GAURDIAN interlock sent a early removal notice to the state and did not certify me and the state suspended me, The judge has backed me on this and said it is his order and for them to reinstate, but they said he cant go against state law, which he hasn't he said 6 months is from April 22 to October 22, and state law requires 6 month interlock to be maintained and serviced during that time,I have now been fired from my job because of it
You can sue them both, but you probably will just waste your time. The state will only be liable if it acted with...
Should I hire a different attorney?
My wife was arrested for a DUI and refusal to blow. I took her to the hospital to have her blood drawn and tested for BAC. It came back negative. The test was administered within three hours of initial contact of the arresting officer. The Doctor stated that if she had had any alcohol within the last 24 hours it would have shown up on the test report. She lost her refusal to blow case. My lawyer didn't receive any video from the police car or station or the arresting officers personal records. He said he requested them but that they usually don't turn them over because it may show him violating policy. The police report specifically stated alcohol odor coming from the car and her breath. Not possible.
Here's what's not possible: "The doctor stated that if she had had any alcohol within the last 24 hours it would have...
