Was I arrested with sufficient probable cause at a DUI checkpoint? Furthermore, if not, can I reverse implied consent?
He smelt alcohol in my breath (I presume this allows for detention). Initially he asked for a breath test on a portable device, I politely refused. He administered 4 FSTs, 2 standardized. (HNG, reverse counting (104 to 56), alphabet starting at E, 1 leg balance). I'm certain that I did well on all tests except for having to set my foot down on the balance test after roughly 20 seconds. This is only 1 sign of the 4 signs; 2 signs are required to establish probable cause if I recall correctly. I was given implied consent warning in the squad car, implying a breath test would be taken on the portable breath test. I thought portable breath tests were only used to establish probable cause so I refused. Was he digging for probable cause? Or did he already establish enough to arrest me?
A review of the entire arrest affidavit would be needed to figure out your concerns about probable cause. I suspect...

Should I get a lawyer for my charge of driving with a revoked license?
I was arrested for driving with a revoked license. This is my first offense for driving with a revoked license. However, my license was revoked for a DWI and possession of a small amount of marijuana (under a gram), both of which I was convicted of in August of last year in Callaway County. I've done a little research, and I've found that jail time seems to be a likely outcome. So I am curious as to whether I should seek legal representation, since serving any amount of time would lead to me losing my job and make an already difficult family financial situation much worse.
I am not licensed in Missouri, so out of respect for any experienced attorney licensed in Missouri who respond to your...
DWI case was dismissed by Judge and has now been set aside.
What reason would a Judge need to set aside a Dismissal for a DWI because the Prosecuting Attorney didn't show up for the case? Our attorney stated after the dismissal that the judge would have to have a real good reason to reopen the case; the DA would have be in an accident or on his death bed. The case has been set aside and they set a new trial date has been set, however the DA states that he will now be on vacation do before the trial date is reset here is my final offer DWI-amend to careless and imprudent - $350.00 plus costs, Failure to yield to an emergency vehicle to a parking ticket-amend to illegal parking $100.00 plus costs! Failure to to drive in a single lane - Nolle Prosse, (I believe then mean they'll drop it), 2 points assessment on license. We won the refusal to blow case
Read all the orders, the one dismissing, and the one setting aside the dismissal. That should bear some light on this.
