Can I fight an underage drinking citation when the police let one of the three teens go who admitted drinking with no citation?
There were four people in the car. We called a friend to pick us up from a party because they began to smoke marijuana and didn't want to be there, our driver had NOT been drinking, he was tested and cleared. The two males in the back seat were tested. The girl in the front seat was not. The three kids (2 males, 1 girl) admitted to drinking. The officer sent the girl home with her 20 year old sister. I was cited and my friend was sited. We were pulled over for a minor traffic violation, per the officer.
You can always fight, however, the fact that someone else wasn't charged is not a defense. There maybe other ways to...
If my DUI court case was dismissed of all charges, do I have to keep my interlock equipment installed?
My lawyer told me to get ahead of my situation by getting the interlock installed immediately so it would look better in court. I took initiative, and the advice of my lawyer, by going to the DMV to report the interlock and receive a new restricted license. Three months later, I went to court and neither cop showed up for the case. The judge dismissed all charges since the state could not produce either cop.

DUI and DWI
I have been asked by my attorney to take an alcohol education class in order to show that I'm being proactive before a DUI/DWI. -My question is: What will that do for me? Will the outcome be different from what it would've been if I had not taken the class? I am not considering not taking it (already enrolled) but I'm just wondering what the judge will think of that and what effects it could have on my case. -Will the judge be able to see the results of a PBT? I'm under the impression that it can't be used against me, but I'm wondering if he/she will still be able to see the results? -Will refusing the test at the station automatically hurt me in court? -Since the introduction of Noah's law, has it been harder for attornerys to fight off first offense DUIs? -In what cases are breathalyzers put into vehicles?
You have an attorney and he or she is the best person to ask these questions. First, some judges will put people in...

How do I prove a person guilty of Accidental Homicide in a drunk driving accident if the DUI was inconclusive? (URGENT)
Hi there, I'm a student in a mock trial at school and am on the prosecution side of the fictional case of 16 year old Alex Goldman. Basically, she was driving after having a beer and crashed and killed 2 people in the backseat. (unbuckled) The defense argues that the BAC was inconclusive, but at her weight, she could have been drunk. How do I win my case with my closing statement?
Look at the mens rea negligence and go from there.
