In need of legal advice for a DUI can someone help?
My mother who has manic depressive disorder, Bi polar disorder, ADHD, and has had electroshock therapy, is being sentenced in February, for a crime she did not commit, her public defender is less than helpful and she's on social security for her disabilities, so she can't afford a real attorney, she was stopped by 3 police vehicles, she did not run a stop sign, she was driving slow wondering what they were doing, they gave her a breathalyzer, she passed, they tried to due a field sobriety test, but she couldn't due to her knee, she was driving my grandmother's car who is an alcoholic and has dementia, and they arrested her for open beer containers that were empty,because my grandmother refused to let her remove said containers, and she was also arrested because her medications are heavy duty, but don't say "do not drive" instead they say "do not drive until you know how they affect you." What should the defense be?
Your mother IS represented by an attorney; her Carbon Co. public defender. It is therefore improper for another...
Why did I receive a notice for a gagnon 1 hearing after receiving new charges while on ARD?
I am currently on ARD for possession of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. a month ago I was a passenger in a vehicle that had been pulled over. On me was found a small amount of marijuana, drug paraphernalia (two marijuana pipes) and an old empty bag were found in my wallet After I was detained and In police custody. I had admitted to potential methamphetamines to be found in the said bag, in which I had admitted to be personal use from a month prior (I am currently not on the drug, I had just experimented and forgot completely that a month+ old bag was in my wallet). In late July I received a letter in the mail to report to the courthouse on 8/14/17 for a gagnon 1 hearing. Online docket sheets show that it's a video conference to be held at the CCCF. Will I be going to jail? I am currently still in the ARD program and was told numerous times that if I am on ARD I should not have to go to jail. Keep in mind, the said person that I was with was pulled over for invalid inspection sticker. They were not cited for this although my affidavit says otherwise. Just seeking legal advice so I know what I am walking into.
Every County handles violations of Ard differently. Technically when you are on Ard you're on non-reporting probation....

Can a dui for marajuana be dismissed if the intial probable cause is dropped?
My step son was driving to a mini market when a police officer pulled in behind him at the store. The officer stated that his window tint was too dark. Which lead to him smelling marajuana and made him, his fiance, and a friend that was in the back get out. The officer did find a small roach in the ashtray. He proceeded to have my step son follow a light to his eyes. He then took him into custody because he refused to do any more tests. He refussd blood work also. He told his girlfriend she couldnt drive the car home because her tongue was green even though she denied ever smoking pot. He also denied the male friend to drive so car was towed. The paperwork for charges came and the initial tint citation code is the wrong one. It should be 4107 e1 and was charged with window obstruction. My wuestion is if the window tint is dropped due to wrong violation code can the dui be dismissed also ? Thank you
