Transportations of Drugs by a Minor
I have a summons to court for Transportation of drugs by a minor. I was stopped at 2 am driving my friends who weren't fit to drive. The cop explained that this could result in a suspension of my license which I find crazy because I had no clue there were drugs. The cop claimed the car reeked of pot like we were smoking but I let NO ONE smoke in my car. Should I consider getting someone to represent me on my summons date? It's only a civil offense but i feel as if the cop lied to search my passengers. No drugs were mine that was found. Possibly able to get the suspension dropped or the whole summons in all?
Consult an attorney in your area. This sounds like the sort of case that can sometimes result in a a favorable result.
Police license plate scanners and temporary plates
I read a question previously posted on this website regarding this same topic, however the answer wasn't exactly what I was looking for. It's not an issue an longer, but a few months ago my license was suspend and at the time my wife and I were actually using my mothers new car, which still had it's temporary plates on it. I never took the chance and drove it, at least until I reactivated my license, but the discussion I've been having with me wife ever since, is that technically, I could have driven the car with considerably less risk of being noticed a by police plate scanner, my reason being that; when driving our own car with it's legitimate permanent plates is scanned by a passing patrol car, it would immediately display to the officer all our information connected with that plate number, including that one of the registered owners, (me) had a suspended license. My argument was, that although the scanner may be able to read a temporary plate it would most likely not return information specific to me, but instead other information; perhaps related to the dealership and the date of issue, and such. Essentially, what information, if any, does a scanner return on a temp plate?
Do an internet search to learn more about the capabilities of these relatively new scanners.
If a liquor or convenience store scans your license when you buy alcohol can that information be seen by police?
I am on deferred disposition for a DUI than prohibits me from drinking or buying alcohol. I recently went to dinner at a friends parents house and bought a bottle of wine to bring without thinking because I wasn't personally planning on drinking. I am almost a year sober and my sentence is almost up so I'm wondering if they will see this when I go back to court.
It is possible, but unlikely. The information is not uploaded to a central governmental computer if that is your...
