When check at a roadblock I was found with paraphernalia, residue of crystal methamphetamine ,and was given also a DWI and my license were suspended. I spent one night in jail and had to bond out for $450 the next morning
You need to retain an attorney for these charges. The DUI is one of the most serious misdemeanors in Mississippi
How can I be arrested while walking for a dui and can I sue
I was walking up to my boy car and they had him pulled over all of a sudden another officer pulls up and arrest me for dui while walking
Based on your facts, no. Check your ticket and double-check to make sure it is a DUI and not a public drunk or other...
Is there a statue of limitations for dui in Mississippi?
In 2007 i was on my way to the hospital with a severe case of Plurasie. I was stopped by a police officer and he asked if I had been drinking. I said no. He then asked that i blow into their machine and i told him I couldn't because I could barely breathe from that plurasie. He arrested me and kept me in jail 3 days. I then went before a judge and pled not guilty. The judge said the officer did not have any evidence. He did not drop the charges but did release me. I then moved to Florida and had no problem getting a drivers license. Well I would like to get my Mississippi license back now. What should I do since it has been 10 years. Also i have had Tennessee license since then also with no problem.
No way an atty can answer this question. We'd have to review your record to see what's going on with your license.
In Mississippi can someone be revoked on a suspicion of a DUI ?
My foster son was on probation. He was pulled over. Did 6 breathilzers (passed all of them) and was still charged with suspicion of a DUI. I'm curious on if the courts say innocent until proven guilty. How is this legal?
The standard for revoking someone on probation in Mississippi is very low. It is a "more likely than not" standard...
Can a cop pull you over for suspected dui out of his jurisdiction?
I was driving home early in the morning (5:30 a.m.) after being up for 24 hours. I had been driving for an hour and a half and was tired and ready to be home. While driving down the interstate, a cop from a neighboring city pulled me over for swerving. He asked if I would give a roadside breathe test which I declined since i had drank 5 beers earlier in the night. After I declined, he informed me that he would have to call the cops from the city he pulled me over in. The law in my state does not allow cops to make arrest outside of their jurisdiction. The other cops showed up where then the cop that pulled me over left. I again declined the breathilzer. I did, however, agree to a field soberity test. After the field sobering test (which I did not make any major mistakes as far as balance, counting steps, or trying to trip me up with repeating questions such as my address and social security number), the cop decided to arrest me for DUI refusal. I wasn't written a ticket for careless driving or any other violation. I guess my main question is will this stick up in court especially since the arresting officer did not witness me swerving and a cop from another city pulled me over?
Yes, the jurisdiction that issued you the citation can go forward with prosecution. However, in addition to the...
Will CPS take my child away for failing the first drug test?
I recently just gave birth to a perfectly healthy baby boy. I did not know I was pregnant (sounds crazy but I really did not). I had no symptoms of pregnancy, no weight gain or anything that led me to believe I was carrying a child. I went to the hospital for stomach pains and was told I was in labor. The hospital drug tested me, without my consent or telling me they were and I tested positive for marijuana. They then tested my baby and it showed up in his system also. I am more than willing to take these randoms drug tests. That is not the problem. Everyone knows marijuana stays in your system for 30 days, however, my caseworker denies this. I am supposed to be taking a drug test after only two weeks and know that I will probably fail. I am extremely worried that they will take my child away from me. I explained to my caseworker that the marijuana could still be in my system and she says nothing will happen if I test positive. However, I find it hard to trust someone who doesn't know how long marijuana can stay in your system. I do not want to lose my child and am willing to do whatever I have to in order to keep him. If someone could provide me with advice that would be amazing!
You and the case worker are wrong as to how long marijuana can be detected in your system. It all depends on how heavy...
