Is it considered "rape" in Alabama when one party is heavily intoxicated and cannot consent to sexual intercourse?
A friend of mine was raped in Alabama. She was under the influence of alcohol and marijuana. She had an approximate BAC of .2-.3 during the time of the sex act. She reports blacking out intermittently during the assault. Her attacker/rapist admits to having sex with her but stated that she had consented to sex. He also admitted to giving/allowing her to have more alcohol during before the time of the assault. Due to cognition and memory loss my friend did not immediately report the incident. She ended up having a child with her rapist however. It should also be noted that the women who was raped is also a lesbian and is married to another woman.
It is considered rape in every state when sex occurs with no consent. The question comes down to proof as to whether he...

Can Tennessee make me pay SR-22 insurance eventhough I'm not ,nor ever been a resident of that state and my state does not?
In 2007 i got a ticket in the state of Tennessee for driving while license suspended. I paid the fines and began the process of reinstating my license in the state i reside in, which is Alabama. Now i have never lived in Tennessee and never held a license in that state. I have met all the requirements in the state of Alabama to reinstate my drivers license and I was informed that I was not required by Alabama to have SR-22 insuranse, but Tennesse is requiring me to now pay a reinstatement fee of $123.00 and get a non resident SR-22, would someone please tell me how this is legal for them to require me to do this. I will already be rquired to have insurance on my vehicle in Alabama, why should i have to not only pay another fee and get insurance in a state i don't even live?

Can I be convicted in Alabama of a DUI if my BAL was zero and my blood test for drugs was deemed "Not Applicable".
I was involved in a motor vehicle accident in which I bumped into the rear of a car at a stop light. When the police arrived they gave me a field sobriety test . At one point in the test I lost my balance slightly.
Of course you can. If a lack of test results was all it took to avoid conviction, everyone would simply refuse testing.

I have a no-contest DUI from 08/14 in Pensacola, FL - AL DL suspended - What do I do?
AL tells me FL must clear me from the National Registry of suspended drivers license. FL tells me I must go to an approved DUI Program/School. Neither will tell me where I can do this in AL (or in FL for that matter). I have been to the local AL office... no help. I have called, and emailed the FL authority - no help, and no response. My FL probation officer will not help either. He knows nothing, and will not lift a finger to find out what I need to do to clear the suspension. What do I do now?
This is not an uncommon situation. Have your attorney or hire one to get the judge in P-cola to authorize you to take...
