How long can a court try you for a DUI offense?
Been going to court for over 2 years with the same issue I was given a misd. DUI back in 2013. At that time I was given a court appointed attorney. Well after several trips to court the court appointed attorney withdraws and say's she no longer wishes to represent me. I go back to court again to fill out the paper work to get yet another court appointed attorney and the judge assigns me her once again. I have to fill out yet another court appointed sheet to get another attorney. The judge approves the paperwork and resets me for the following month. Once again she is assigned to be my attorney. I again go in and the judge denies my paperwork after already approving me before I left. I have had to go thru this over 10 times. By law can the judge approve my paperwork for a court appointed attorney and then once I get to court not approve it since it was already approved? Like I explained I travel 2 hours for court and each time they reset me because they keep saying something is wrong with my paperwork although it's always approved before I leave the courthouse. Is there anything I can do legally?

How would I get an ignition interlock device when I don't own a vehicle? No one I know will allow me to do so.
It's been two years since I received a citation for DUI-First Offense and while I was trying to reinstate my license I have to show proof of the device installed but I've never owned a car nor can I get or purchase one without a license. Can someone tell me my options please?
I was in the car with my brother, I had been drinking he was not. He was driving. We got pulled over for a licence plate light out. The cop asked if we had been drinking I said yes I was and he said no. He did sobriety test and got put in he cruiser. cop came back asked me to get out of the car, I did. I had a drink and he asked me if it was mine and i said yes. No rights were read and he arrested me for public intox and open container (which I understand I admitted to prior). No rights were read to me the entire time. When I court can I bring this fact up? Side note I was also charged for posession because my brother had marijuana in his car, but I feel like I can probably get out of that out.

If you are on probation for cannabis possession will you be tested for EtG on top of the standard 8/10-panel on the drug test?
Currently on 1-yr probation for cannabis possession in OK. I have to take randomized drug tests for the probation req. I already know that I will be getting the standard 8/10 panel urine test. Will I possibly be tested for EtG in my system as well even though it was a Marijuana offense or will it just be the standard test?

Can the DA actually send me to prison for not receiving his "supervision" fee which was part of my sentence?
I received a 5 year suspended sentence for a DUI felony and a fine. I completed the 5 years with a clean record and paid my fine. But I forgot about the DA supervision fee and now back in jail and told I will be sentenced for the original time
