Can you get a pouring permit in the city of Alpharetta with one dui charge?
I was charged with a dui and just recieved a job serving in Alpharetta. I know the laws are a lot stricter on receiving your pouring permit and I can't find any information online that says what can deny you from getting one. I have no other charges and was wondering if the dui will not allow me to get a pouring permit.
I did a very quick search and it looks like you will not have an issue with a DUI. However, I would recommend that you...

Would it be a smart decision working in my favor to get my underage dui case reopened with a paid attorney?
I'm 20 & I was convicted of my first dui on June 1 2016. I was pulled over for an expired tag and speeding in Henry county. The expired tag charge was dropped. My driving record would have been clean because the speeding ticket I got when I was 16 was supposed to clear in June. I read what I believe was a .08 on the breathe test. There was no video on file. I'm in school & have a job and don't want my whole life to be taken a toll on because I made one mistake. Is there anyway that I can get it off my record?
You offer no grounds on which to reopen the DUI case.
Can I get my DUI arrest removed from the insurance database Lexisnexis since the charges were dropped to a reckless driving?
Was arrested for DUI in Dekalb County Georgia 3 years ago. The charges were reduced to a reckless driving charge. Speaking to my insurance carrier, he said it's showing up in the Lexisnexis database as a DUI/Possession (no possession was ever in question) in addition to reckless driving. He also said that it's possible the DUI/possession should not show up and can get removed. Is this true and how would I get this changed/removed. Thanks.

Need a lawyer to represent me for mistreatment/neglect by EMS and false arrest.
I am seeking a lawyer to represent me in a case of violations of civil rights and wrongful arrest. In 2015, I was detained and arrested for DUI drugs and disorderly conduct in GA. I am completely innocent of the charges. There is video of the entire incident as proof. During the time I was detained, I was mistreated by the police and County EMS. Briefly, I was stopped at a gas station by a police officer after he noticed that I had no tag on my car when I passed by him. I had bought the car a couple of days prior and was not yet required to have tags. This is not in dispute and was verified by the police officer at the scene. He noticed I was extremely red-faced and my hands were shaky. He decided immediately that this was the result of illegal drugs. I explained to him that I had been working at a store across the street from where we were, and I became over-heated, and drove across the street to the gas station to get cold water. He made me get out of the car and he began to question me about drugs. I explained to him that the only medications I had were prescription medicines that my doctor verified would not affect driving.

I sincerely need help right now.
I have been in the Dekalb County Anti-Recidivism Program since December. I have remained fully complaint to their terms. This morning in our monthly compliance hearing I was made aware that I tested positive for some prescription opiate THREE TIMES. The ironic thing is that I haven't touched an opiate, illegal or otherwise, in over 5 years. I was made aware that the State was recommending that I should be terminated from the program and taken into custody, I however contested these claims as I know beyond a reasonable doubt that I didn't take these things. I have been taking herbal pain supplements that can be found in many places, however, they really help me with my back pain. This is the only thing I can think of that could have caused this as I don't take anything else, I don't take prescription medication, I don't take OTC drugs, nothing, with maybe the exception of Melatonin for occasional sleeplessness. There is no other explanation other than negligence on the drug testing facility, which is dubious at best, or even the manufacturers of this supplement "supplementing" their product with some questionable items. I'm terrified, I have a child on the way, please someone help

What would allow for a GA judge to put a 1st offender DUS with SC license on 12 months probation after they paid their fines?
My son was stopped in Atlanta, but did not know his license was suspended. He was arrested and had to bond out. Upon his release, the following day he cleared up all SC violations, paid all fines and got his license reinstated. He went to court and showed that he had done everything necessary, but the judge put him on 12 months probation where he would have to pay $150 each time and said that they were going to refund his money that he paid out. Is this a common practice for a person with no criminal background and his 1st offense? His tickets were all in SC, where he got his license and paid his fines, but the GA courts are punishing him.
Tickets were in South Carolina, but he drove on a suspended license in GA. So GA can punish.
