Is this an unlawful arrest? And what are the penalties to possession of alcohol by someone older than 18 but under 21?
My girlfriend and a friend were stopped by police and caught with possession of alcohol by a minor. They are over 18 but under 21. The police were about to arrest them and began to read her miranda rights. A friend of hers interrupted and they stopped. Then the police told the two girls to get in the squad car then took them to the police station. They were not booked, but instead were issued a summons. The whole experience took about an hour. Is this considered an arrest because they were deprived the liberty to leave, and were detained for an hour? Also what is the sentencing for possession of alcohol by a minor over 18 but under 21 outside of a motor vehicle. They also had fake id's but were not charged with them, but were not charged. Can they be charged if they fight the possession?
Nothing you post is wrong with the arrest. They are under 21 and cannot possess alcohol, 2C:33-15. It is a disorderly...

Will I have to take the written and road test again if my license has been suspended for 2 years?
I lost my license for 7 months for a dui I completed IDRC, however I was locked up in county jail when my suspension was lifted. Then a small municipal court from a separate municipality suspended me for non payment of fine even though I was still in county jail. I was just recently released 7 weeks ago and have court to have this smaller suspension resented but I'm confused. Technically was my licence suspended for the full 2 years or does that break in between save me?
You should contact the Motor Vehicle Bureau to find out if you will have to take the written exam and road test.
Can my vehicle be searched after a DUI arrest? Is this a violation of my 4th amendment right?
I was arrested and formally charged with a DUI even after the "drug recognition expert" concluded that I was not under the influence. In speaking with the prosecutor the DUI charge will be dismissed. My vehicle was searched after the arrest and I was charged with possession of a CDS and paraphernalia. Is this a false arrest and is this a violation of my 4th amendment right? Did the police basically arrest me for a DUI in order to search my vehicle without my permission?
A lawyer would need to review your discovery to give you the answer you need. That being said it is common for a...
My son got a dwi first he blew a .09 then a .18 I heard there should have been a 3rd given is this true?
My son wants to join the navy and since this is his first offense and he has a clean driving record before this I was hoping the judge would work with him so he can prove to the court he joined and graduated boot camp and maybe the judge would drop the charges. Can this happen?
This sounds like a car where the Alco-test result can be suppressed. Hire a good DWI attorney for your son.

What happens if you violate conditional discharge requirements?
I was caught with marijuana paraphernalia in NJ and I live in NY. I was given conditional discharge in which I have to submit 2 drug tests to the court. I still haven't gotten my results back in order to send them so they will not get to the NJ courthouse in time. What's going to happen if my conditional discharge is violated?
Your original charges (all of them) will be reinstated and you will get a lawyer to ask the judge to restart your CD....
