How to modify a house arrest sentence?
I was sentenced to 2 years home detention for HTV and DUI. I've paid all fines, fees, completed all requests by the home detention office, and not been violated for any reason. In July I will have completed 12 months of the 24 months. Is there any way to be able to have my sentence modified?

What is a Post Conviction Relief for DUI? Is a successful PCR nearly impossible?

Pre Trial DUI
I got pulled over for speeding a few months back. I had been at a party and waited about 2 hours to head home after drinking. I got breathalyzed and blew a .04. Only being 20, I got arrested.

In the state of Indiana, can you refuse a breathalyzer test, without penalty, if you are not operating a veichle?
I was driving a friend, who is 20, from my house back to his house at 11 PM. I was pulled over by an officer for having a headlight out. Batesville is a small town and the officer knew that my friend (sitting in the passenger seat) wasn't 21 and made him take a breathalyzer test to make sure he wasn't consuming alcohol underaged. The officer was very rude and his request for a breathalyzer test felt very invasive. I understand that you can get your licence suspended for 1 year if you refuse a test while driving but does this apply to other people in my car? Can an officer request for a breathalyzer while I am walking home from a bar and use it against me for public intoxication or do I have the right to to refuse a breathalyzer, without penalty, because I am not operating a motor vehicle?
Based on your question, it would appear that the "breathalyzer" to which you are referring is a portable, hand-held...

If I cannot satisfy the officer, asking questions that I refuse to answer, of my sobriety, & will not submit to a field sobriety test, Do I have to get out of my car, if he says to?
