Was I victim of entrapment? Underage drinking
I was recently involved in an incident where i was a passenger in a vehicle of which the driver got a DUI. When asked if i could drive the vehicle home, the officer said straight to my face "Don't worry youre not in any trouble". After which I admitted I had a little to drink hours before. Then he came back and asked if i wanted to take a PBT reading. My exact words were "Do I have to?" and he said no. So I refused. As the incident went on me and another passenger were told to find a ride home, and no talk of being in trouble or getting an underage was made. Now 2-3 weeks later I recieve a citation in the mail for underage drinking. WTF. This would be my second offense. I need help
Unless the officer told you to drink, it's not entrapment. The evidence they have against you is your admission....

What action is recommended pending the test results?
Traffic Stop following distracted driving/cell phone use. My friend was taken in for a blood test for suspected "drugged" driving. She was released and allowed to drive, awaiting test results which should take a week. She said she had taken non-prescription Percocet the day before for pain and worries about the consequences.
It will result in criminal charges for Dui. Speak or email an attorney as soon as you can.
Need help on DUI/Lawyer
2 weeks ago I got a DUI and the cop found a pipe in my car with a small amount of marijuana. I haven't smoked in almost 3 months because I have been actively searching for a new job. He told me that I could get out of the possession and paraphernalia charge if I snitched on someone. I had about 2 weeks to do so while I waited on my blood test results. These will both be my first offenses, would him not reporting finding a bowl be considered withholding evidence? Am I in need of a lawyer?
Yes you need a lawyer and you should speak to that lawyer before "snitching" on someone. Good luck.
NY State DWI/DWAI Predicament. If DWI will be fired. Lives in New Jersey.
My sister received a DWI in NY State in June, She works for a large pharmaceutical in New Jersey, and her job is 85% travel. Without her license, her career is in the tubes. Yes, its always easier to say after the fact and realize the error of your ways.The question here is this lawyer suggested that he will have a better chance of pleading down the case to the DWAI, if her employer would provide a letter she would be fired if convicted. (There is no doubt she will be). However I work for a similar size company and I have a friend in HR who told me no ethical company will provide a written statement like that, regardless that she will lose her job. Before she lets the cat out of the bag to her employer, does this increase the chance of pleading down?
There are two issues here. One, you have posted your question with Pennsylvania as the jurisdiction, therefore only...
Facing a DUI Charge Does it make a difference I was blacked out drunk when given my blood draw at the hospital.
I may have been functionally blacked out and do not recall giving consent nor the trip to the hospital nor my cab trip home.
I don't think this is the worst of the issues in your case if you were operating a vehicle then passed out. You may or...
