Can a charge be added to charges already charged?
My husband was charged two counts of scheduled II drugs, which wasn't in a prescription bottle. The cop said in his report that it was amphetamine and oxycodone. So we said not guilty and showed them that they were my prescriptions (his wife) And that they were two different amphetamines of mine not oxycodone. We showed them proof that I took the prescription from the pharmacy which shows the dates and kind of pills. So they took it to the lab, well it came back two different amphetamine which was what I had on my paper from the pharmacy. Well on his trial date, they wanted to do three years supervised probation but then the lawyer forgot we gave him the list from pharmacy of what I took so he went up to talk to the state (prosecutor) and now they want to test the straw for paraphernalia. That wasn't one of his charge when he went to trail but it was on his police report. Can they add that? And why didn't they test it when they found the two prescription pills? Should I get another lawyer.
Yes, charges can be added. How is it that I would know why they didn't do a test? Getting another lawyer is your choice.

Can a failed DOT drug test from six years ago be found on a background check?
After failing a DOT drug test I completed a follow up program, passing 13 random tests over 13 months. I wanted to know if the failed test is on record if a background check is done by a new employer.

Driver didn't wait for the police to come to the vehical driver got out and proceed to tell the officer that (me) the passenger had adderall under the seat on my side. So officer came on passenger side asked me to get out of the vehical and proceeded to tell me I was being detained another officer went straight to the passenger side and looked directly under the seat where then the officer picked up the plastic bag of pills and then told me.being it was on my side of the truck then I had to be charged with it.

I think I may have been wrongfully convicted of drinking and driving what do I do?
I was involved in a car accident that didn't hurt anyone. I was the only person on the road and it was raining and my car spun out of control. When the cop picked My up and gave me my breathalyzer test indicated a 0.9 bac. I was a heavy smoker at the time I took my test nearly 2 packs a day. I know that this factor can ultimately hurt me in my case. i'm also only 20 years old I was 19 at the time I took the test. I don't smoke anymore though. My lawyer that my parents had to pay 1500 dollars for seemed like he did absolutely nothing for me I had the same results as everyone else in the court room. I've done plenty of reading on what a skilled dui lawyer can possibly accomplish yet nothing happened. Now I'm stuck in position that's ruining my life financially because I will most likely being paying about 3 grand total when all said and done. I was convicted only 2 days ago. I also live in Louisiana one of the hardest states that give dui convictions is there anything I can possibly do? Do I have any options ? Please help !
You dont tell us how you were convicted. Trial? Plea deal? You talk about the effects of blood alcohol and smoking...
