Can a Marshall watch you use the bathroom to take a urine test, when you are on Marshall supervision for a suspended sentence ?
I have a 2nd DUI in my evaluation it stated I smoke marijuana, now I have to have random urine test at the Marshall discretion
Yes how else would be able to certify that you didn't tamper with the test or bring another urine in? Makes sense right?
If I had a case that I missed my last court date, would the state move forward eventually with a "default verdict"?
I have a warrant for failure to appear for 3rd count of driving w/out insurance. The sentence is either a 1 yr license suspension or proof of a 6 month insurance policy. Since I missed the court date and moved away now will the state eventually move forward with a default conviction and suspend my license or will the case sit until I'm arrested and brought back in front of the judge? @ Also,since I've moved to a different state would a small misdemeanor warrant come up and hinder me from getting licensed or even obtaining a new state ID?
Contact a local attorney who handles traffic violations around Reno. If you failed to appear, it usually gets reported...

Can I be accused/convicted of sexual assault/lewdness/rape if the girl I had sexy with was drunk, as was I?
I'm a bartender in Reno NV, an old highschool friend who I've known for years came into my bar and was extreamly flirty. Kissing and touching me throughout the night. She leaves with her friends at last call only to be brought back by a homeless man(she was causing a scene at a local casino and I guess she told the guy to bring her back to the club) She lost her phone and no place to go so I let her stay with me.. I had already had a good amount of drinks in me and we get to my place and cuddle and kissing etc.. One thing leads to another we end up having sex. At no point does she say "no" or "stop". I have audio of her acknowledging that we just had sex and that she was okay with it as well. One can never be to cautious.
This could be a very serious (not to scare you) situation. I suggest consulting with a criminal defense attorney who...

Can my employer terminate me for a failed drug test (post accident) if the positives were for prescribed medications?
I was in a small accident on the PIT equipment I was driving and I was told to take a drug test. I did and the results came back positive for Marijuana and Oxycodone. Both prescribed to me, I never smoke before I go to work (only use it at night for pain relief and to help sleep) and I take my Oxy as prescribed, 4 pills a day taken 4-6 hours apart. I have been suspended since Tuesday and was told that the Dr. who will verify how many nanograms I had in my system would call to get my prescription bottle number to verify that I take that. Am I screwed? Because I'm currently suspended if I checked myself into rehab could I keep my job?? Please let me know
Yes, your employer can terminate you for this. Marijuana use is illegal in the United States. There is no such...
What does a marijuana citation do to your record?
I am a Nevada state resident and was recently pulled over in Nebraska. It was a police trap point with fake signs for drug check point. I was coming from Colorado and had purchased recreational marijuana. I pulled over on the road because I was scared and the cop noticed. He told me he was pulling me over for failure to signal. He said i seemed nervous. I told the police officer what I had and they took the recreation marijuana and paraphernalia. Since I was straight forward with him he let me off with a possession K2 or less than one oz of marijuana and a possess or use drug paraphernalia citation. I would like to know if this is something that I can get taken off my record after I pay the fines or is it not that big of a deal? I know I do not need to let employers know but is there any other consequences I should be worried about? Should I seek legal help? Thank you.
Unfortunately, you have to hire a Nebraska lawyer to handle the matter. In Nevada, you would probably be able to get...
