Spencer Law

It was a cold night at 3am and I was visibly shivering and repeatedly stated that I was cold. I had already worked about 60 hrs that week with another 16 to go over the next two days. The DRE came after I was detained for about 30 min and walked around my car with the dog a few times. The dog gave no signs but I was taken to the station to give a urine sample. I am in a rural farm area driving a nice car with out of state plates. Would prejudice come into factor? I was never arrested, only detained. Urine test would most likely be dirty but I had not smoked that night but had within the past week. I am a resident of FL and was only in the area for a summer job. I plan on moving back to FL shortly.
The DRE will supply the officer with reasonable grounds to request a urine sample. Chances are you will test positive...

I got an OWI 4 1/2 years ago...then a driving while suspended about a month later. I finally paid off my fines today and was wondering if I need to file for SR-22 in order to get my license back? I would think after so long I would not need to but I am unsure.

I'm from Illinois and I received an OWI for marijuana in Iowa. I'm just trying to keep my career from being jeopardized by this. Are there any plea agreement opinions besides OWI prosecutors are willing to accept to prevent reporting a DUI to Illinois? I can not lose my license due to a suspension right now!!!
Yes, it is mandatorily reported. Your license will automatically be revoked in IA, then an abstract will be sent to...
I got off work around 11 p.m. and headed home to Illinois to try and get home from the Holidays. Upon entering Illinois I got pulled over (Admittedly going 19 MPH Over Speed limit) in a rush to get home. He stated my car smelled like "Marijuana" and demanded I get out. He searched my vechicle and found a pill bottle that had shake under my prescription pills (it was a special unmarked bottle because in my culture you can't take pills) I didn't know it was there because I share the bottle with a roommate, but he arrested me and charge me with a DUI (After doing a sobriety test, which I passed). Obviously I am trying to fight this. There was also an open liquor bottle in the trunk I share the car with my sister who is 22 (I'm 20) and told them this but they charged me with a PAULA as well
Not sure what your question is but if you plan to fight it you will need a lawyer.
The officer never tested my drink, or breathalized me, but wrote me a ticket for possession of alcohol under the legal age
