Chance of winning Trail(First time DUI)
I got pulled over by a cop last year ( Oct 2014 ) in WA for weaving on the road and not using turn signals while changing lanes(Police officer made this up.There are no video recordings).Did FST and declined PBT. Was arrested for being impaired and blew a 0.11 & 0.10 at the station.The prosecutor was initially willing to plea bargain ( According to my attorney ) but later refused to do it.I think that my attorney was lying to me about the plea bargain until i paid my installments(abt 3500$). Just back from a motion hearing and couldn't supress suppress supremes supremeness pressures pressure any evidence.I am feeling so helpless with the current attorney.But I have already paid all the money.Should i go to trial with the same attorney?What are the chances of winning ? should i consider DP?

Hello, Will a DUI from June 2006 show up on FBI fingerprint check done this month?
I have an RN license in my current state and am applying for license by endorsement. I have never said yes to conviction question, and have not had a problem. Should I be concerned now?

Minor accused of rape while both parties were intoxicated
I have a friend (17 years old) who had sex with a woman around his age while they were both drunk at a party. Unfortunately, the young woman was more intoxicated than my friend realized. She blacked out and doesn't remember consenting to the act. Meanwhile, my friend is adamant he did not rape her or take advantage of her. She has taken the matter to the university they both attend and my friend has had to meet with school officials and give them his recollection of the night in question. It has not yet been taken to the police, but the university intends to hold a hearing and he faces up to a year suspension from school. How should he proceed? Also, the only other relative he has is his older brother. There is some concern that if this escalates, his brother could be seen as his guardian and be held responsible as well. Is that a possibility?
He should get an attorney. If he's contacted by the police he should demand an attorney and exercise his right to...
