DO I have to take drug test if dfs tell me to?
Granddaughter was taking by dfs in Feb. And now all of a sudden they want me to do drug testing .When I have had unsupper vised visit with her this hole time.
If MO-DFS is anything like FL-DCF (which I'd bet that it is) then the answer is no, you do not have to take a drug test....
Can i get my license back if i have a DWI in another state?
I got a dwi in Missouri in 2012 I got everything I needed to do to get it dealt with done. I'm 2015 I got a dwi in Colorado that is still an open case. I'm now trying to get my license back in Missouri. Will my Dwi in Colorado effect getting my license back in Missouri?
Not enough info provided. It largely depends on why you were suspended in Missouri and how your Colorado case gets...
DWI, possession of less than ten grams of marijuana and a pipe.
To be honest I had drank more than I thought i had. I did have a pipe, marijuana in my car plus, he gave me a ticket for not staying in my lane properly and charged me with DWI. I do smoke marijuana recreationly but, Ive never been in trouble with the law my entire life and im in my mid 30's. Never been to jail, just a few speeding tickets about five years ago. There was 4 tickets, including the dwi. I was absolutely terrified like i never have been before. They asked me where i was going and i was going to my friends mothers home to sleep since my father died and my mother has been having some mental issues and i felt i needed a good nights sleep to get back on track. My problem is that i was so stupid, terrified that i said i was heading to my boyfriends house. I just couldnt think at all and after my anxiety kicked in i just couldnt think. I know all this was stupid and i wish i could go back and change everything. everything else i said was true. If they found out i didnt tell the truth about who's home i was going to and i cant provide proof of that will i be arrested for perjury or any other issue stemming from that untruth? I did fully cooperate with all officers involved.
You need to consult a criminal defense attorney ASAP. You only have 15 days to file for an administrative hearing to...
I was wanting to know what all I have to do to get my license reinstated.
I received my 3rd dwis about 15 years ago. Pretty much got them all together in my early 20s. I completed all the necasary tasks that I was supposed to (drug court, fees, probation, stop). I was wondering now what all do i need to do to get my license reinstated. I do not own a car.
This is a reoccurring question which myself and others have commented on and answered many times, so you may wish to...
Can a prosecuting attorney jump from the traffic chapter of the Missouri statues,to the criminal to enhance a traffic tick
From 1992 till 1997 I was convicted of five D.W.I's, no accidents just pulled over or sleeping in car in bar parking lot, there was no major enhancement for DWI in the traffic chapter. So at sentencing they reached over to the criminal chapter an calling me a habitual offender enhanced my level of sentence to be able to sentence me to seven years in the state penitentiary in which I served 4 and a half years. With nothing in the traffic statues for this kind of penalty. How can they pick and choose from anywhere in the statues to do things like that. I thought if the punishment was not in the specific chapter they could not roam over all the chapters to find something the wanted to do. If they can do this then why don't they apply this to people who run stop signs and red lights more then four times? They kill more people in accidents then DWI drivers. (as per Highway Patrol study's.)
Statutes are harmonized together, the more specific controls the general perhaps your attorney can explain statutory...
How long do the authorities have to charge someone when they found drugs on them in the state of Missouri?
My brother was stopped last week by the police and they found drugs on him. They drove him to the hospital because they thought he was overdosing. They did not arrest him, they did not charge him. They did find the drugs and he says he admitted to them he used the drugs. He does not remember much more than that. Please help me figure this out. No one will give me answers. I am just wanting to know what to expect.
The Prosecutor has up to 1 year from the date of the incident to file charges if it was a misdemeanor, 3 years for most...
Can I go after an employer for wrongful termination?
In June, it was over 100 with the heat index, my a/c had been out in work vehicle over a week. my supervisor said there was no loaner available, I'd have to keep driving that one. so I did. on June 9th, it was extremely hot, I got heat exhaustion, was throwing up, dizzy, had headache. called supervisor, who told me I could go home or go to urgent care. I chose to go to urgent care. he told me he had to come get me, to stay in my van until he got there, he was only 10 min awat, but took over an hour to get there. so I sat in the heat, with no a/c even longer. got to urgent care, did drug test, they told me to take next couple days off. my drug test came back positive for oxycodone(I have a prescription for hydrocodone) when I was told what came back they told me they didn't test for hydrocodone, I asked them to retest it because I don't take the other. they refused. my employer refused. unemployment found my employer wrong, and gave me my benefits after an appeal where I was able to explain they denied me the right to a retest of the sample. want to know if I can win a case or even have a case.
Have a case for what? You were discharged for a positive drug test. Just because MODES gave you benefits is irrelevant....
