How do I ensure I'll get a court date within the next month?
I was just arrested 2 days ago for DUI and DWI but am relocating AZ in one Month. Is a lawyer able to help push a button to get my trial dated sooner rather than later? Or should I contact the clerk for the arresting county to see if they can help me? This is my first arrest of any kind at the age of 29, so I hope they go easy on me.
Contact an attorney. It will be difficult to move the court date up, but it is possible. It is doubtful that it can...
Where are court ordered hair follicle test taken at?
If I have to take a court ordered drug hair follicle test for pretrial will my hair sample be collected by my PO at the location where I go to physically meet my PO when I have to go see them and take a urine or am I sent to a different location to have my hair sample collected ?
A different location, because the PO does not have the facilities and protocols in place to manage chain of custody of...
What will happen if my pretrial UA comes back diluted or has low creatine levels?
I am on pretrial supervision. I call check in one week and come to see my PO every other week. I might have to take a UA that every other week depending on whether my PO wants to test me or not, sometimes they do sometimes they don't and all my UAs so far were negative. I was recently told I have inflammation of the kidney and liver and have to drink a lot of water to avoid it getting worse which I told my PO. The day/night before my physical check in I drank 3/4 of a 2 liter of water. The day of I drank 3/4 of a gallon of water and took my UA 6 hours later. I didn't know about dilution or creatine levels until after I consumed that much when my treatment counselor mentioned I shouldn't drink too much water because it could mess up my UAs taken at the treatment center or pretrial. I am 6'1 and weigh 170, what are the chances of my test accidently being diluted or having low creative level and if so will I be able to retest with another UA to prove I haven't been using and it was an accident or will I be violated ? It's been a week since my UA and I have no warrant out for my arrest.
I really wouldn't worry about it. You will not have a positive test result, which is the main concern. if they raise...

Why would a 1st offense DUI/DWI not appear on MD case search?
1st offense 2005 DUI/DWI (can't remember which) does not appear on MD case search. Other charges from the same incident appear (no process & pbj), but not the DUI/DWI. I am trying to determine my own record for a future employment search. When I run internet based "criminal record" searches, nothing comes up. Thanks.
You can order a full criminal background check on yourself. You also can request your driving record from the DMV.
