My mother's boyfriend is a drunk and ruins every Holiday. He has a warrant out and I was wondering can I have him picked up?

How can a 10yr old unresolved dui be resolved?
it was my second dui 2002. my first was in michigan and this one in missouri, i did not go to my sentencing and i currently have a warrant out for my arrest but they will not pick me up from michigan. Is there anyway i could get that resolved without having to turn myself in in missouri? I would pay what ever fine i have to to get it resolved. please help.
You did not go to sentencing, so it is likely you did not receive a sentence. That sentence may include jail. It is...
Does BAC at the time of driving calculated using Widmark's retrograde extrapolation method matters in Michigan DUI cases?
I am a male that was tested with 0.08 BAC by DataMaster DTM 1:46 minutes after detention. I finished my last 16oz draft Oberon with 5.8% alc/vol at 2:15AM. Using Widmark's retrograde extrapolation method with average elimination rate of 0.015/hr, 184Lbs weight it results with 0.068347 BAC (or 0.07 if rounded). I have a bank statement showing my tab being closed at 2:04AM. Even with finishing the drink exactly at the last call 1:45AM (which is impossible) this would give me BAC at the stop time of 0.076. Does this argument have any weight in Michigan courts?
A retrograde extrapolation can be a winning argument, but it is up to a jury. The evidence would need to be presented...
Please define the restrictions to my restricted license.
I just received a restricted license. It has terms on it that state I may not consume any intoxicants, or any drug/alcohol related activity. I received a Dui, which resulted in this. I am not an alcoholic, in fact I drink socially once a month or so. I made a bad judgement call by driving after having a couple glasses of wine at a class reunion. Does this restriction apply to when i am driving or all the time? If i am not driving i do not understand whose business it is. I am not on probation with the court and I am using an interlock system for a year.
You can't drive with any measurable amount of so how in your system. I tell clients 24 hours between drinking and...
How can i keep from losing my license?
I have a restricted license and an interlock on my car. My DUI was in 2007. Despite zero violations from 2008-2013 i was not able to get it off. I couldn't afford an attorney to fight it. Last year i started drinking again. I had 3 violations. They were in Jan, March and October 2014. I blew .03 in my vehicle each time. I received a show cause hearing last week to appear in court today for those violations. I have not had a drink since October 20, 2014. I attend AA every day and see a counselor. The lady at SOS told me I violated my restricted license by drinking in general. I was never told i couldn't drink at all. Drinking and driving no, but where does it state no drinking alcohol period? I have been off probation since 2008.
Your best chance for minimizing the consequences of your recent violations is go hire a good attorney who handles...
