Can a bartender serve minors alcoholic beverages at a party in a private residence with the home owner’s permission?
I was asked to tend bar at a private party in someone’s home. The home owner said I could serve the minors in attendance alcoholic beverages. If I do and one of the minors gets drunk or hurt am I personally liable?
Homeowners can't give you permission to break the law.
I have seen videos on you tube of dui checkpoints. And in the videos, the driver of the vehicle does NOT answer any questions
To the officer after the officer asks: "have you had anything to drink tonight" . The driver in the video is recording the interaction and says to the officer "Are you detaining me" And than after being asked questions answers: "I have the right not to answer any of your questions" And continues to ask the officer: What is your officer name and personnel number? The officer calls his supervisor over and says to him: "He is refusing to answer any questions".. The supervising officer walks over and asks the driver the same questions...AS IF trying to force an answer..He, the driver still does not answer. Eventually the officer(s) says "You have a good night sir" .. I see that this can be a legal way to possibly avoid a dui, dwi etc..Am I correct or what are depending factors?
I assume the police did not smell alcohol. If they did the driver would have been arrested whether he answered...
Will I get arrested if I come back? (DWI)
In Aug 2012, I was arrested and charged with a DWI. I was on a J1 au pair visa. At court legal aid was provided, I was told to attend Tasc and a Mothers Against Drunk Driving program, which I did. During my second court appearance the DA offered to bring the charges down to a violation if I pled guilty and that I needed to attend a Victim Impact Panel program and a Drinking and Driving program. This happened on a Thursday and I had to leave the US the Friday, due to the fact that my visa was revoked. The DA knew about this but she said that rules are rules and that she wasn't going to adjust them because of me. I had to plead guilty. Now I lost contact with the attorney who took my case. I want to come back but because I haven't done the programs will I get arrested at the US border???

Conditional license from DMV?
I was recently convicted of DWAI in New York. I also attended a hearing at the DMV because I refused to take the breathalyzer when I was arrested. After the hearing, the DMV took my license away for a year based on my refusal. Can I get a conditional license? The woman judge hearing the case was really mean.
You can apply for the conditional license in light of the plea.

What state DMVs will a NY DWAI - drug conviction be reported to?
A few months ago I pled guilty to a DWAI drugs in NY. I was a CT resident and licensed in CT @ the time. I just moved to FL. Ironically the same day I arrived here, a letter from the CT DMV was sent to my CT address advising me that my CT driving privileges will be suspended in a couple of wks. If I were to obtain a FL license and no longer hold a CT license, will my FL license eventually be suspended? ALSO, should I have to have an interlock device installed in my car for the CT DMV if it was a drug conviction and no alcohol was involved?
You may want to re-post this question in the Florida DUI forum. I am not a Florida Attorney but I believe Florida is...
