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...
I was driving but my husband got DWI what can we do??
My husband and I were at a bar and of course drinking. Well we were going to leave with some friends and I decided to move the car my husband was in the passenger seat and I stupidly decided to do a burn out in the empty parking lot. Anyway cops showed up and asked who was driving as they clearly could see my husband getting out of the passenger seat and me standing by the driver door with keys in my hand. My husband said he was driving because I have my CDL and drive a school bus and will loose my job if I got a DWI. So my husband took the blame but now I want to just go ahead and say it was me because it really was me and my husband already has 3 DWI this would be his 4th but that's not fair to him because he really was not driving. The cops never investigated me or asked me any questions they just took my husbands word for it. So how can we fight this back? What will happen if I say I really was driving after they already charged my husband?
If you admit that you were really the one driving, you will very likely be arrested and charged with DWI. If convicted,...
Why is there a request for warrant before my court date?
I got my 4th DWI in April this year. I just checked casenet for Missouri today and on the docket entries is says on 5/26/16 complaint filed and request for warrant and my bond is 4000.00 cash or surety. My court date isn't until 6/22/16. Also they have me as an aggravated offender and not sure what that entails with jail time or how much jail time I could do.
It is not unusual for prosecutors to request a warrant in felony cases. A 4th DWI is a class C felony in Missouri and...
Will a motion to suppress work.
I was arrested for dui. The officers probable cause is that I ran a red light that doesn't exist(I have good photos and videos to prove it). The real reason the cop pulled me over is due to my avoidance to an upcoming sobriety checkpoint. I drove through a business parking lot and then turned onto another main road. All of my turns were legal.
I suspect the officer's story is different than yours. However, if your story is accurate, you have a good suppression...
