My s/o was charged with four crimes 2 possession of illegal instruments, a dui etc. I want to know if it we should get a lawyer?
My s/o had potpourri (the original package says the substances in it are not banned by federal/state law). He was charged with a pipe that only had the potpourri in it. He was given a urine screen that he will pass. He was on the phone pulled over on the side of the road when the homeowner called the cops. They didn't ask to search his vehicle nor did they give him any sobriety test, and they didn't tell him what he was arrested for. What is my best option.

Drug testing at plea and arraignment

What will happen if I attempt to get my first drivers license? Can I be arrested?
At 16yrs old I was pulled over by police for my passenger littering. I had a drivers permit at the time, but no license. My passenger was 20yrs old, so I was driving illegally. The car was not registered in my name and I had only an expired Bill Of Sale. I had expired tags on the vehicle, which belonged to a friend's old vehicle. I received several driving violations. I was given a court date and my parent was required to be there since I was a minor. The judge gave me a fine and put me on a payment plan. To make a long story short, my parents were divorced and it was a very unstable situation. Both parents swore to the other that they would pay the fines (needing to "out-do" one another). At 19yrs old I was finally out on my own, working, and trying to create a stable life for myself. I was finally going to go get my license, but found out that my fine had never been paid on at all. So, a warrant was put out for my arrest and for 3 yrs the fine had been increasing due to late fees. At that point it was up to over $1,000, which I did not have at 19yrs old. I'm now 23yrs old and am assuming the warrant is still active since I've never taken care of it. What can I do? I NEED license!
Warrants do not go away. You should contact a local attorney about lifting the warrant (or see if there is a bond that...

Will I be able to get into Kenya and Tanzania with a DWI on my record?
A few days ago I was arrested and charged with a DWI. In about 3 months I will be going to Kenya and Tanzania. Will I be granted a visa and will I be able to get through customs into these two countries? I know the laws are different in each country which is why I am confused on the exact rules for these two. My record is completely clean other than this one incident. Also, if I have a lay over in another country but am staying in the airport, will I have a problem then? My lay over may be in Dubai.
Realistically your case would still be pending in three months. DWI cases routinely take much longer than that. Your...
