I was just arrested for an owi (first time) this past weekend..tested a 1.2. My question is this, is it better to get an attorney in the county you were arrested in? For me this would be Johnson county.
There may be advantages to hiring an attorney who practices in Johnson County. They will know the judges and...
my fear is becoming a habitual traffic offender!
It is possible. You were smart to hire an attorney. Ask him/her your question. They are in best position to answer.
I am a Minor. Alcohol sobriety tests were delivered that night. I was not taken to jail that night but told to drive home which i did. Also, the officer, when i asked to call my mother did not allow me to do so.

Sheriff says I ran stop sign. I did not. Got OWI but did not run stop sign. Video didn't come on till I was through the turn w/blinker going and headlights on. I turned onto the street I live on when I saw lights flashing behind me so pulled over turned my lights off. 2nd officer pulled up to 1st and said "you got him" 1st said "yes" and 2nd left the scene. Video shows 2nd pulling in front of my car and getting out of his. Did not happen & not in the report. Video tampered with, video does not match report. 2nd not in report because it did not happen. My public defender keeps rolling over for the sheriffs Dept. Took 6mths from last Nov to get video. Now working on 10ths. More details of other unethical things this officer did but do not have the room to put it all on here. Please HELP

Basically I spontaneously went to the justice of the peace with a man that I believed wanted to be married. At the time he was intoxicated. Since that time we have really not been able to communicate in an appropriate manner. When sober he says he does not want to be married anymore. I have filed a petition for an annulment pro se. I need advice on what to do now to get this process done and over with
Whether you are entitled to an annulment is far from clear. Every state defines grounds for such relief, and marrying...
last year, at a country concert i was with some buddies and we had two cases of beer sitting next to the car, i was on my way to the bathroom when excise walked up to my friends asking them how old they were, i watch what was going on from the line at the bathroom, (a port-a-potty in the parking lot) and when the cops were looking thru the car, why they were doing that idk, but one of the cops came across my wallet and thats when i saw him point to me and walk over and grab my arm and walk me over to the car. i was never breathalyzed, i never had any beer in my possession, nor was i ever near the cases of beer when the officers were there. al the advice I've read from similar cases on here, everyone says don't plea guilty if you don't feel you're guilty, which i don't.. good choice or no?
Based just on these facts, I suspect a good defense attorney might have gotten an acquittal. Of course, this depends...
