As a minor, I plead no contest to Public intoxication charge, for which I was NOT intoxicated, may I still fight the charge?
I was at my local baseball field with my best friend after my girlfriend and I had broken up that night. I had drank a couple drinks during the day but had long since sobered up from the limited amount of alcohol. I was by myself as my friend had left and I was waiting for another ride when police showed up, spotlighting the field. The officer asked why I was there, I explained, and he said it smelled like marijuana, searched me and obviously found none. He then told me to walk to his car with him as another officer came up behind us and while driving, the second office said I appeared "pretty wobbly". I immediately knew this would be the typical situation of the highly questionable small town police force and when we approached the original officers vehicle, they searched me, found nothing, performed NO breathalyzer or sobriety test and while talking to me, placed me in hand cuffs and said I was under arrest for public intoxication. They claimed I had no ride home, and while I was in the car I heard over the radio that they said it was "the officers call" on what to do with me, and he proceeded to drive me to the county jail. Do I have a case even after the no contest plea?
If you pled no contest, then you are saying that you won't contest the charges. If you want to fight this case, then...

What does this mean?
What does it mean when your offered 2 years prison probated over 4 years? And when they put a warrant out for your arrest, HOW easy is it to have their Gender mistaken on the warrant, say they had me listed as a Man when I'm a Woman. Also, if a Mysterious Failed Alcohol Test with High Levels of Alcohol shows up, when You know for a FACT you NEVER took any said test, does the DA have to provide proof such as you on video taking a test or some kind of signature where you acknowledged taking the test? And do they also have to provide proof if the cop said you refused a test? Also isn't it My Right to see the evidence against me? I'm not sure if my C.A.A. ever filed a motion to discover.
I think you should be addressing these questions to your attorney. You have a lot of them and probably will have...
Not understanding what's going on, need some kind of light shed on my situation.
I stopped to get gas, next thing I know a cop showed up behind me & said he got a call saying I was drunk, I explained I had diabetes & had too much sugar. He only performed 1 roadside test on me & said I was drunk & put me in his suv. He never did a blood or urine test on me, never did a breathalyzer or even read the form DIC-24 form to me in front of a video. He was only going to charge me with a PI, but my babys dad was mad he called him from work to come get my kids, so he told him to check the store video to catch me driving so he changed the charge to a dui then my ex kept calling the cop & got my charge changed to a dwi state felony for having kids under 15 in my blazer. I still have my license, being no test was ever done on me. What I don't get is they charged me with having 1 kid. Almost 6mo.s later the DA takes it to a Grand Jury without me knowing (I highly believe that was the doing of my sons father) & they indict me with 2 counts for 2 of my kids. Why not all 3 of my kids, they are saying I'll get arrested again and have to bond out again. How can they indict me with NO blood/urine test or breathalyzer? I have been railroaded the past 2yr.s because I stood my ground.

My ALR Hearing was canceled, the judge suspended my liscense but i didn't know this, untill I was stopped. What do I do now?
My attorneys office called me and said that my ALR Hearing had been canceled. Couple days later they called again saying that my liscense might be suspended, to be carefull. I thought my 6 months were up for suspension but the six months suspension started 2 days ago when the ALR Hearing was canceled by my attorney and the judge suspended them. Could it be because my attorney kept reseting the hearing untill 6 months passed and the judge canceled the ALR hearing? Help please!
Your license will not be suspended until you have your ALR hearing. If you attorney "cancelled" your ALR hearing or...
What will prevent me from getting off interlock for DWI early?
Im on 1 year probation for 2 DWI's, the DWI's happened 4 years ago, I've served 6 months probation already. My attorney handed documentation over to the probation office in Dallas (I'm out of state supervised). I have been totally compliant, have a portable breathalyzer no fails, all fines and fees completed. He told me he just handed the paper work to probation and we'll see what happens next week. Would I typically qualify for early removal of the interlock? It didnt sound like he did much more than just turn in the paper work...
Highly discretionary with the judge, but it's been 1/2 the period of probation, so, you're eligible. Don't be too...
Is there any way to get charges dropped or changed from a DWI?
I had not slept for around 30 hours beforehand. I was driving from Virginia to California to begin my senior year of college. I bought a Four Loko and drank it at a rest stop about 30 minutes beforehand, trying to make myself more drowsy so I would be able to fall asleep easier. However, I was too anxious to fall asleep so I decided to keep driving for a bit. The cop pulled me over and I panicked. He asked where I was headed and I said I don't know (I was pretty out of it). He asked if I had been drinking and I said no. He told me to get out of the car and he asked me again if I had been drinking. I said yes. I admitted I admitted to drinking a Four Loko at a rest stop about an hour earlier. He then performed a field sobriety test on me. However, his instructions were unclear at times and when I got it wrong, he yelled at me which made me even more nervous. At some point he searched through my car and found about about a cup of Four Loko in a McDonald's cup. He also told me that the medication he found said that alcohol should not be used with them. He asked if I thought I should be driving. I said that it might be good for me to take a break for an hour or two. He took me to the s
