Can an adult get charged with a DUI in Arkansas?
I was pulled over and arrested for possession of marijuana. The officers informed me that I had swerved and thats why they stopped me. After issuing a drug screen which I failed only for marijuana and failing a field sobriety test that I cant even pass sober, they issued me a DWI with drugs. When I asked why I didnt get a DUI, I was informed it was because I'm not a minor? I don't understand. Neither is good but isn't a DWI worse?

How long does the court have to charge someone a DUI?
Back in 2015, I was arrested and charged with DUI. On February of 2016 was my first court appearance and the prosecutor asked for a continuance. In June of 2016 we went back to court and again the prosecutor asked for a continuance for no witnesses showing up. In July of 2016, the state again asked for a continuance because the arresting officer was unavailable. In August of 2016, all parties were present, no witnesses or the officer were asked any questions and the judge stated that he would look over the evidence and render a verdict. That was over a year ago and still no word from the judge. At what point can I file a motion to dismiss? Have my civil rights to a speedy trial been broken because of the length in time it was from the moment I was arrested to almost two years waiting for a verdict?
I recommend that you contact an Arkansas criminal defense attorney about your situation. It appears that there was no...

What should I do to get a dwi off of my record so that I can continue to ship off for the military?
I admit to having one drink about an hour before I was asked to go to the store for my girlfriends mom. I ended up running into a pole. My girlfriend and her friends made it there before the police and state trooper did, yet the first police officer told the state troops that he saw it happen. They performed the nystagmus test, the breathalyzer, and the straight line test. After that he only told me that I was under arrest and placed handcuffs on me before putting me in the back of the police car.
Hate to tell you but it's already on your record. The military looks at charges and the underlying conduct. You seem to...
