Will I be drug tested on my first court date or any court dates for being arrested for an OWI?
I was arrested for OWI in the state of Michigan in Berrien County. I did not have the possession of any other drugs or alcohol but was under the influence of alcohol and arrested for OWI. My first given court date was given to me about 12 days from my arrest. I am curious if I need to worry about being drug tested on my first court date or any court dates in the future.
Possibly. Contact a local DUI lawyer for a free consultation. Stop doing any illegal drugs now.
Will I go to jail for a DUI if I failed to appear in court and it's 4 years later? Or what will my options be?
I received a DUI in 2010, failed to appear in court and was given a bench warrant, the warrant expired and they suspended my license indefinitely. I want to go to court and get license reinstated, but I'm scared of what might happen.

Can my husband get his felony removed from his record?
My husband got a breaking and entering class d felony back in 2007. He had no priors and nothing since. He did not have a good lawyer, even the judge said that. It was a family friend who didn't know criminal law. I have been told it should have dropped to a misdemeanor. He made a mistake and did the time for it and we would like to know if and how to go about this.
Speak to a local DUI lawyer who specifically does DUI cases. Most give free consultations.
Am I getting a ticket? (State of IN)
I was walkin home from a tailgate and a man wouldn't stop harassing me so the police got involved stated that I wasn't going to get in trouble, didn't go after the man but stayed with me. I didn't have my ID on me and they gave me a normal white piece of paper that says ticket on it but has no further information on it. I had been drinking I'm underage but they had done no breathalyzer on me and have no proof of this. Am I facing serious charges ? I am also on the pre-trial diversion program in another county so I'm assuming I messed up bad. But the police kept telling me I wasn't going to get in trouble. I'm slightly irritated that they didn't go after the man harassing but came after me crying my eyes out because I was scared of the man. So I'm confused if I'm actually being charged
