What are my rights at a sobriety checkpoint and what is the best way to handle an encounter with an officer at said checkpoint?
Drove into a sobriety checkpoint. Did not notice if everyone was being stopped or if there was profiling. Am over 30/M, look about 25, was alone. Trooper approached vehicle, asked "how are you doing?" Put vehicle in park, turned on overhead light, rolled window down all the way, did not turn engine off, put hands on wheel. He asked again, I said "fine, how can I help you?" He asked if I had anything to drink, I said "no". He asked where I was heading. I told him (town name). He said that is an exciting place and that he has spent a lot of time there and he asked what part I lived in, I told him and he said again that he has spent a lot of time there and asked what part I lived in. I told him not the deep part. He let me go. I feel like he was profiling me as poor white trash. What's best?
Nothing. You were not arrested or charged. Nothing in your post indicates anything other than a routine sobriety...
How do drug screenings work for dui classes?
I got a first offense dui in Fayette county, wv. Of course I'm required to go through the DUI classes. I am afraid I may test positive for THC should they screen me the first time. Is the first screen a "gimme" and then I must pass the rest? Are the tests at FMRS supervised? What if I have a prescription for medical?
The requirements will vary from court to court and depends on the jurisdiction. Typically, if you test positive on...
How soon after an accident does a urine test have to be adminstered in order to be valid for DUI?
I was recently involved in an accident where I was at fault and was transported to the hospital for injuries before the cops arrived. The nurse said that the cop said if I did not urinate that they would catheter me. Well they never catheter me and it took me 4 or 5 hours to pee. I had Xanax in my urine from a few days before. So my two questions are can I beat it if they charge me since they cannot prove I was under the influence while driving, and how long after the accident do they have to administer the urine test? Surely there's a limit for it to be admissable.
The investigating officer can and most likely will get a subpoena for your medical records. You were not under arrest...
What do you do if ordered an IID x 16 months and you have not owned a vehicle to install it in and now its been 5 years?
Aggravated DUI with bodily injury and high BAC 1st offense in 2012 (WV). Did not own a car then but was ordered an IID x 16 months. That was almost 5 yrs. ago and still don't have a car, so have never been able to install the IID, can license ever get reinstated? All fines are paid, dui classes are completed, did required jail time.
There is an exception to the mandatory interlock and that is "incapable status" as in I don't own a vehicle and no one...

I suggest you seek out a criminal defense attorney ASAP, and stop making admissions on social media such as this site.
What if I have no way to get to WV from MI for a court appearance? What if I don't show up at all? Can I call someone?
I live in Michigan. I was pulled over for speeding in WV. When the officer asked me for my paperwork I handed him my Michigan ID and confessed to him that I was suspended for DUI in 2006. This is a DWLS 2nd offense as I was pulled over once before in 2011. I now have a court date set for June 16th and I have no idea how I am going to get there... it is a 6 1/2 hour drive from where I live, I have no money for an attorney, I was denied a public defender based on my income, and everyone I have asked has said they cannot take me there. I am skeptical about showing up anyway due to the fact that the officer pretty much guaranteed that I will do jail time... If they make me do even a couple days of jail time I will lose my job of 21 years and my home. I don't know WHAT to do...
First, you need to contact your assigned Magistrate and speak with assistance to kindly explain circumstance and seek a...
Can my charges be changed after my arraignment and before or during court in Berkely, WV?
I was arrested in Berkely,Wv for DUI first offense and that's what I was arraigned for but I have a few DUI in Md. The DUI in md can only be used against me if they are within 5 years however WV considers DUI from 10 years prior, the arresting officer didn't see them when he ran my information, I'm also assuming the magistrate judge didn't see them as I was only charged with 1st offense DUI (0.13)bac, can my charges be changed by the time all is said and done with court, does md keep record of and will they share my history prior to 5 years ago with WV? I'm not sure what to expect.
First of all, if your "DUI Attorney" was remotely knowledgeable of WV DUI law he or she would have told you that not...
