Can I possibly win my underage DUI case if an officer didnt have a good reason to stop me?
it was around 2:30am and I just exit out the freeway. That was when I got pulled over by 2 officers. He came and asked for my DL and registration and didn't say anything of why I was stopped Until I asked. He said I took a couple seconds to turn right the the stoplight when it turned green and said I was hitting the bumps on the road. I told him that I was merging slowly to the slow lane. He then said that I was driving slow on the slow lane, and I told him aren't I suppose to and he agreed. He also added that I didn't realize they were behind me and took a couple seconds to stop. That was because they didn't have their HEADLIGHTS ON, but when they turned on the siren i did stop. It was pitch black and had no clue they were following me for 1-2 mi. I took the breathlyzer in the end.
The answer is possibly, yes. If an officer does not observe any violation of the law, he does not have probable cause...

Arrested for DUI and resisting. Can I get the Resisting drop and plead to the DUI?
I was called on for a disturbance. I had been drinking most of the day. I was pulled over and arrested for DUI. I haven't got to read the report, not sure if they told me why they stopped me. I was out of it.. I was told that I resisted. I was a high BA. I hardly recall the incident. I need to get the resisting dropped to keep my job, I will plead to DUI as I was driving. I probably make too much for a public defender. I cant afford an attorney, I spoke with one and it was $3,000. I work with LE and want to keep my job. I've been there 26 1/2 years.
Call Peter Marek in Stockton after searching for him here on avvo. He's one of the best and will provide excellent...
My juvenile son (14) got arrested for driving while intoxicated. Do I need a lawyer?
My son who is 14 decided to ride his mini bike on the street after he and some friends were drinking. He got arrested and had .03 BAC level. They released him to us that night and didn't hear anything for about 6 months. We talked to the probation officer who didn't feel that he should get more than probation, but I can't be sure of that. I'm sure they will not allow him to get a license and that sort of thing, but do I need legal representation in court? His court date is next week. Please advise...Thank You.
absolutely you should get an attorney. I have handled these cases many times before. This case should go to juvenile...
What do I do if I got a DUI?

Since the police has accused you of (and presumably arrested you for) a crime, a DUI, contact the best greater Bay...

What are the chances of actually doing time for a first time dui for marijuana ?
I was recently pulled over for my license plate being on my windshield. The cop said he smelled marijuana, told me to get out of the car and did sobriety test on me. I was then later questioned (in which I told him I smoked an hour ago) and tooken to the Merced county jail for the night. My main concern is if I will do time in jail? Or if they are ways I can avoid jail time because I am a full time college student and also a part time worker
A first offense DUI, even if it's for being under the influence of marijuana, is not generally going to require real...
