Can a police officer change the charges after you bonded out ?
I was pulled over with my children in the car because my headlight was out, the officer ask for my license ,, then the officer says what pills are those? , I stated what pills? The officer tells me to step out and walk to the back of my car, so I did. The officer comes to where I am and holds out his hand with yellow pills asking me again what they were? I stated again I don't know they look like aspirin to me. So they searched my car and my purse then pulls out an empty aspirin bottle the officer opens the aspirin puts it to his nose and stated it smelled like marijuana so the officer started drilling me about taking a drug test and I agreed because I knew I would pass it. They take me to the PD and then book me they never gave me the drug screen. I was charged with possession of marijuana because they said my aspirin bottle smelled like it which the bottle was empty. Then I go to court , i.was called up and the judge read my charges and the charge was controlled substance in which this was the first time i.heard anything about this. So I was arrested for a possession charge when there was nothing in my possession but that charge was not brought up in court they added a charge.

I was pulled over for failure to move over by a highway patrol in which he instantly gives me a Breathalyzer 2 times and according to him I failed. When I got to the station they gave me another breath tests and it said I failed but was still never told my BAC. Not once was I told not is it written on my ticket itself.

I received DUI other last summer July 2015. The judge said if I would go to MASEP Classes a madd class pass 3 drug tests and see court programs and pay my fine then he would drop it.

Can a judge refuse to give you credit for time served if you did physical labor in the work center?
A few years ago my husband was arrested for owing fines. The fines were for no insurance and driving on a suspended license. In court the judge said he was sentenced to 6 months in county with no time served. After 10 days he was sent to the work center for the remainder of his time. While in the work center he did physical labor for the County(cleaned highway, worked at salvation army, worked trash detail at community events, etc). Also during his time he lost his job, apartment, and vehicle. Once he was released he had nothing, he was homeless for a few weeks. Now he still owes every fine and has warrents out for his arrest for the same thing he went to jail for. Is there anything we can do about this?
I don't believe he can deny you, but you'll likely need an attorney to get the record and fight this.
