Can I get this Dui dismissed?
On a Friday night I allowed a friend to drive me home who told me he had a valid driver license. I had been drinking and turned over my keys to him. Well he went got my car and picked me up and on the way home a state trooper pulled us over. Next thing I know they asked me to step out of my car, put me in hand cuffs and said I was being arrested for consenting to allow a person to drive my car who has suspended license and they gave him a 2nd offense dui. I didn't know his license was suspended and I thought that I was doing the right thing by not driving with drinking. The police officers charged me with DUI no BREATHLYZER nor Blood test was given to me. No test was given to me. I wanted to know if I can get this dismissed considering I thought I was doing the right thing and not drinking and driving. He lied to me saying he had license and sober....

You are unlikely to get it dismissed if you represent yourself. Also, if you are your own lawyer the things you say to...
Does my 17 year old daughter have any rights in possession/consumption alcohol charges even though she has not yet been tried?
My 17 year old daughter had a walk in detention hearing where she was ordered to house arrest and required to wear an alcohol monitoring device until her court date on 7/27. The charges are for possession/consumption of alcohol. Another minor brought the alcohol, became sick and called 911. Cops showed up as well and entered my house (I wasn't home at the time. Only three 17 year old girls were there). My daughter requested a breathalyzer test but the cops did not give her one. Two girls were cuffed and transported to the juvenile detention center and later released. The other girl was transported to a hospital and released. The cops also went through my house and searched every room looking for other people. Does my daughter have any rights? If it can't be proven she was inebriated, why should she have to wear the device and for over a month?
Does my daughter have any rights? Yes. Every day we get numerous questions like this, giving us one side of the story,...
Can I somehow be able to use pretrial diversion since DUI and DWI are mostly interchangeable words?
I was recently arrested for DUI in Tennessee, and I am 18. This is my first offense, and was going to use Pretrial Diversion since this is my first offense ever, but TN law states pretrial diversion can not be offered for DUIs, but can for DWIs. I did let them take my blood, but was never breathalyzed, so I don't know what my BAC was at the time. My arraignment is tomorrow.
No - they are not interchangeable. In Tennessee, there is no DWI for adults. DWI applies to minors only. And don't...
