Can I get a DUI other charge thrown out if they can't prove that I was under the influence of a controlled substance?
I went through a roadblock recently and they smelled marijuana and saw that my eyes were blood shot. I hadn't smoked in the vehicle and it had been a few hours since partaking of the drug. But ignorantly I had admitted to smoking 3+ hours before and they found a friend's used pipe and his empty container that had held weed. So I was arrested and charged with possession of paraphernalia and a DUI other. From what I've been able to ascertain - in order for a DUI other charge to stick, the state has to prove I was under the influence and that it affected my driving ability. However, I wasn't given a drug test nor a sobriety test. So do I have a chance of the DUI charge being dropped?
Your admission plus the pipe and the smell is probably enough.
What do I do if I was charged with possession of paraphernalia and the felony possession charge is being held? They want me to s
Road block. Told to pull over for DUI. Never tested. Searched vehicle. Said they found paraphernalia. Arrested me. Dog came. Searched my purse. Said they found a gram of meth.

Is there a statue of limitations for dui in Mississippi?
In 2007 i was on my way to the hospital with a severe case of Plurasie. I was stopped by a police officer and he asked if I had been drinking. I said no. He then asked that i blow into their machine and i told him I couldn't because I could barely breathe from that plurasie. He arrested me and kept me in jail 3 days. I then went before a judge and pled not guilty. The judge said the officer did not have any evidence. He did not drop the charges but did release me. I then moved to Florida and had no problem getting a drivers license. Well I would like to get my Mississippi license back now. What should I do since it has been 10 years. Also i have had Tennessee license since then also with no problem.
No way an atty can answer this question. We'd have to review your record to see what's going on with your license.
