Friend got pulled over for suspicion of DUI but was not drinking only had Weed in system.
He was found with a blunt in his posession. They had him blow he blew zero, they took him in for a blood test, and booked him in jail. How strict are laws in Utah for this sort of crime since it's not alcohol related. Are they allowed to do both tests on him? What is the protocol for the police on the scene for this kind of crime. Is it easier to get these charges dropped in court compared to an alcohol DUI? I'm sure they will have him do a drug evaluation to determine probation and classes. How should he prepare for court if he can only afford a public defender? I know prolonging a trial usually helps get a better deal with a prosecutor, just looking for some advice to give him to prepare for his dmv hearing he will request before the 10 days and things that help in trial.

How to get packet for out of state DUI?
My fiance got a DUI in Lake Tahoe, CA over five years ago. All fines have been paid, and up to this point, we thought it had been taken care of. He went to renew his Utah license and California had put a hold on it due to some packets he had to fill out. We have attempted several times to get these 'packets' from Cali. They have told us twice it has been sent. We still have yet to receive them. How do we get them to actually send them? They are extremely rude and not helpful at all. We requested tracking for the packet and they denied us. We need to get his license in the state of Utah. HELP!!!

Do I need to mention a DUI on a rental application if I haven't gone to trial yet?
They ask about pending criminal charges, but I haven't even been to court yet.
Depends how the rental app question reads. If they say "ever been arrested" you have to answer yes.

So I got a ticket 3 years ago for underage drinking. I haven't paid it yet because of personal life reasons.
The reason being is I've Gotten married and had a son all within that time so life is a bit crazy and it sadly enough kept slipping my mind. But I've went to court got issued 300$ fine plus 2 days community service but I didn't do either. And now I have a $1500 bail. I was wondering if I just pay that entirely would there still be any consequences or will that wipe me clean of all of this. Like including ticket and all or is the bail a separate payment?
You need to go to the court where you received the fine and community service to clear this matter up. The reason for...
