What can be done to fight a dui?
My son was pulled over for tail lights being out. He was in possession of a small amount of marijuana . He is being charged with possession of small amount and a dui. his paperwork on one page says taillight on another page says brake light . he was handcuffed, taken to hospital for blood tests, and held at police station afterward until he could be picked up . was never read his rights and we have pics of the vehicle still in the impound showing none of his lights were out

Can i be charged with DUI if i was sober?
I wrecked my truck while driving on a wet road, i was completely sober and truthful to the police.There was a slight odor of marijuana in my truck from smoking the day before and the cop claimed that it reeked as if i was just smoking or there was "a pound of weed in the truck".There was no marijuana in the truck and it was only a slight odor that others at the scene said they couldn't smell.I requested field sobriety test but the officer refused to give me one and offered me to take a dui or blood test so i went tor the test. on the way to the hospital the officer said they would check my HTC levels, yes he said HTC,and also told me that even if i wasnt high i would still most likely be charged with DUI anyway.He texted and drove the whole way there as well.What should i do?Im a minor.
Hire a lawyer. If you smoked weed the day prior you probably still had metabolites in your system. They can be...
I got busted for a DUI when a cop parked across the street from the methadone clinic followed me and lied on field sobriety test
I sent a couple of nasty emails to the police station saying how disgusted I was with the cops in our town. I never threatened them or anything. They knew I was a methadone clinic patient from a previous run-in with them 3 months prior to this incident. SO, what happened one week after my emails, the cop waited in his cruiser across from the clinic. He waited until I took my methadone at the clinic. I then drove out of the clinic's parking lot and he followed me and pulled me over for having a tinted license plate cover. He asked where I was coming from. {He KNEW where I was coming from because he sat there 50 feet away facing the entrance to the clinic) He purposely failed my sobriety test even though I passed it just so he could get a blood sample. He got an EASY DUI.How do I fight this?
You may have some suppression issues available for your defense. However, the case will not be resolved in this forum....
