Is a container search of a purse considered illegal if the purse was zipped up and on my person?
The driver was arrested for driving with out a license. The offocer told me if i had a valid driver's license i would be able to drive the truck away. I gave him my license and when he returned, i was removed from the vehicle for a search. The officer grabbed my purse, unzipped it and looked through it finding, marijuana cigarettes inside. I was then arrested for possession of marijuana.
Under certain circumstances the police have a right to do a limited search for their protection. Whether or not that...
Do I need an attorney for my first OWI in the state of michigan?
I am 20 years old. i was up north at torch lake for the 4th of july. on the 6th of july i went to get my car to pick my friends up from the public access area. i got out of my car, spoke with my friends, spoke with an officer nearby multiple times, asking if i could park my car for a couple of minutes while we wait for another ride, and asking for a nearby gas station. i walked to my car and a couple of people i met came up to me and said "maybe you shouldn't drive" and things of that nature. the office came to me and gave me field sobriety tests. i completed them, then refused to take a pbt and chose to take a blood test. later at the station an officer told me i had to take a pbt, and against my will and better judgement i took it and blew a .134.. i have yet to receive a court notice

I was having a reaction to low blood sugar and was pulled over due to eratic driving. I do remember that driving my truck was
extremley difficult. I was pulled over and asked if I had been drinking. I stated i felt my sugar was low and did a test on my own machine, which showed my blood sugar at 32. After eating some candy , I was made to do the field sobritey test, which I failed. My breathalizer test showed alcohol at.09. I was then placed under arrest. Is it possible to blow hot on low blood sugar? I had had 2 drinks approximatley 3-4 hours earlier. Just seems level was so high for the amount I drank, and the time frame of it all.
The breath test certainly does not reflect your reported drinking pattern. It is unclear from your question whether...
How to get license back after DUI?
DUI happened 10 years ago. License was revoked and everything was taken care of at the time of the incident (fees paid and probation requirements met) what are the chances of getting license back after ten years with no trouble since the incident? What will have to be done to get it back?
The process of license restoration is complex; however, there is no reason you should not be able to get your license...
Can I do early expungement for my DUI?
I have got a DUI ticket in 2012 in Troy Michigan and I'm trying to do early expungement, if that's possible. I went to the court and they said it has to be 5 years after my probation period. Which means I have to wait till November of 2018 I'm applying for medical residency and having a DUI on my record will definitely affect the process Your answer would be appreciated
As I understand Michigan's laws on this subject, this is not possible in the state of Michigan. Some other states allow...

License restoration after 2duis and 2 dwls?
I currently hv revoked license...due to two dui convictions, although I actually hv 3 1999, 2009 and 2013. The first 2 were counted as 1st offenses! I completed sobriety court and probation without a problem and arranged a appeal in 2015 and lost! Up to this point I still had the baid device and didn't hv it removed for additional 6 months...no one at Secretary of State could tell if I should hv it cuz my license was showing revoked not restricted with baid! I would like to get my license back but now I am facing a 2nd dwls charge and this had been in the past 6 months...I am sober since the last dui and I do not attend meetings anymore for personal reasons! Both times I was pulled over was from simply running my plate on my car...neither time had I violated any roadway laws aside for dwls... is there any hope for my license to be restored?
