If my DUI court case was dismissed of all charges, do I have to keep my interlock equipment installed?
My lawyer told me to get ahead of my situation by getting the interlock installed immediately so it would look better in court. I took initiative, and the advice of my lawyer, by going to the DMV to report the interlock and receive a new restricted license. Three months later, I went to court and neither cop showed up for the case. The judge dismissed all charges since the state could not produce either cop.

What is the Penalty for a first time DWI when you have a completely clean record?
The details to the events that happened are very confusing. I was stopped because I was going 13 miles over the speed limit at 4 am. When the officer came up to talk to me, he must have smelled some alcohol. Which is true, I was out with friends before, had a drink or two and spilled some on my dress. He asked me to step out of the car, I did no complaints. He proceeded with follow the pen with only your eyes test, I did, I also notified him that I am extremely nervous because I have never been stopped by police. I seemed to have passes, then he asked me to walk in a straight line, I did. And then he asked me to balance on one foot, I did. He was very confused and asked me to take a breathalyzer. I did and he and his partner talked for a little, shrugged and then hand cuffed me and asked me to sit next to him in the squad car, I did. We didn't go to a station, some facility where there was a bigger breathalyzer machine, the police officer was really nice, un cuffed me immediately . I blew and it came out to .07. The officer told me I still have to go in front of a judge, but, 99% the judge will have me take a class, told me to just make sure this doesn't happen again.

Medical Test against my consent
My family is blessed with a new bay recently. Prior to delivery of our baby at a local hospital in Montgomery County, Maryland, however, I and my wife declined (chose "no") to a metabolic screening test for our new born. Though the test has been widely applied to screen future anomalies in children, according to my prior research, it had demonstrated alarming rate of false positive result that negatively affected the life of parents. That is why we did not consent to the test. In spite of our clear decline for the test, the nurses at the hospital took our baby into an exam room and draw blood sample from him at our absence. Later on I saw a scotch-tape on the heel of my baby and asked what happened. The nurse told me that they have conducted state of Maryland mandatory metabolic screening. I insisted to know weather the test relay is mandatory which she confirmed it is. After we left the hospital, however, I took time and found out this was false. In the sate of Maryland metabolic infant screening is performed subject to parental consent. As the result of their action, I felt abused, betrayed, and the right of my family violated. What do you guys advise me?
