Would my attorney have a copy of all the charges I got for a DUI?
I received a DUI. I had friends in the vehicle with me and I had a bottle of whiskey in the truck as well. The officer took it for evidence but I think he said he forgot to write it down. I gave my parents the money and they said they'd take care of it since I'm in school. I never told my parents I had friends in the truck with me or that I had whiskey with me. I am underage and blew a .5. Would my attorney know about a possession charge even if I didn't tell them?

Visa revocation for non-immigrant with DUI arrest
I have a TPS with EAD and it is time for my extension. I was arrested for DUI in jan 2013 but I still have my case pending on court. I got the TPS apporved on end of 2015.

Will my fiancé be able to go to rehab for violating his probation due to a dui?
My fiancé was arrested last month for his 4th Dui. He was also already on felony probation for his previous dui. Since being incarcerated I have managed to get him accepted Into a rehab if the judge allows. I have also gathered his medical records and attendance from the time he got off of house arrest last year until he got arrested proving that he has been trying to help himself by checking into a mental facility, attending AA meetings, going to see a therapist etc.
Perhaps, no way to know what the judge will do ask his Attorney.
