I got a citation for underage drinking & the cops didn't see me with any alcohol or conduct a field sobriety test. Am I guilty?
I'm 19 and was at a party and the Sheriffs showed up and busted it. I was outside in my friends car, who was sober, and we were about to drive home when they arrived. The cops went through and talked to everyone in there, and conducted some breathalyzers. When they got to me, they cop asked how much I drank and I said something along the lines of 'I don't know, I didn't bring any alcohol but I might have had a few shots of vodka' and she wrote down 3 shots of vodka and took my information. No cop conducted a sobriety test or a breathalyzer on me, and when I asked if I could take a breathalyzer they said no, even though I was certain I would have passed because those 2-3 shots were taken about 4 hours before. What are my options?
It is illegal to drink if underage. It is irrelevant if you are legally intoxicated.
Can i be charged with an ovi if i wasn't pulled over in the car?
I was stopped by an officer walking down the road. My car was up the street but I was not pulled over. Another officer came to the scene and took me to my car and charged me with OVI. I was never pulled over or seen behind the wheel of the vehicle. They charged the owner of the car with wrongful entrustment and towed the vehicle, because the owner has a previous wrongful entrustment. are they able to charge me with OVI?
The answer depends on what observations the officer may have made. Your question "can" you be charged has already been...
Can multiple DUIs be sealed/expunged?
Between 1990 and 1999, I pleaded "no contest" to three DUI's (two in Ohio and one in Virginia). Each was a misdemeanor. I complied with all fines and courts' sentencing. These are now affecting life insurance rates and I would like to not have to report them. I was a different person and it was a different time. Are these going to continue to haunt me for the rest of my life?
DUI's can not be expunged under Ohio law. You would need to consult with a Virginia attorney to determine if your...

I feel that for some reason a female state highway patrol officer has some personal issue with me.
She gave me a DUI ticket when there was no reasonable sign of drug use. She asked me what medications I was on (before reading me my miranda rights) and i told her I took adderal (among other medications) and it was by perscription. She said is that your story ? Do you want to change that? The drug test has come back with amphetamines (of course) and she called me at 1:00 in the morning to say "the lie is over" your license is suspended as of today. It's seems to me that the court has to make that decision, no? So I ran over and got my list of medications to send to the public defender, and faxed and emailed them today. (no reply yet) She also grabbed my balls when she was searching me. I was wondering if I have grounds to file charges for false arrest? I wasn't hired for a job because of her
The short answer to your question is "Yes" you can be charged with a DUI/OVI taking prescription medication. That said,...
I so I know I was drinking the night before?
So I know I was drinking the night before and I've had an Interlock system on my car for nine months and on that 9th month I failed one interlock car start test so I did not think anything of it went in for the 10 month check up and they saw that I had a positive test so I told them the truth I said hey I was drinking the night before and woke up in the morning brush my teeth and went out to my car to go start it and I feel that it wouldn't start so I roll down the windows wet inside drink a glass of water and a half hour later I tried it again and it start just fine so yesterday I got a letter in the mail saying that they are going to extend my suspension of my license an additional four months for one test that I failed and I'm not on probation anymore any suggestions out there?
You cant fail any tests. Don't start the car with any alcohol in your system
