Do I have a valid complaint?
The officer had his 12-14 year old daughter present throughout my DUI arrest and booking. I felt demoralized and very uncomfortable by her presence. It was wrong for her to be there and was also inappropriate for the officer to put a child in that position. I was polite and alert during my arrest.
Since you were the one who was driving under the influence, you can't complain about the circumstances of the arrest....

I was pulled over on us rt. 41 northbound by park west (it goes down to 40 mph) I was pulled over for speeding (clocked me at 74 mph). Did some field sobriety tests and blew 0.081 and was taken to the station. I was polite and admired to drinking one blue moon and at the station I blew a 0.071. Why did they check the box to suspend my license? And what are the chances I can beat this case?
I wouldn't feel comfortable giving you odds on "beating" the case without more information. Based on what you have...

At a party minors were drinking with out parents home. There were open cans. Everyone was sent home with a ticket.
Yes. Why would they need parental consent? What parent would consent to that?
I've had my RDP for only two weeks and I've stopped at the gym a couple of times, will they cancel my rdp when I send my report?
I've only had my RDP for two weeks and need to send my initial 30 monitor report. Do I have any chance at keeping RDP? I know if you blow and fail the state gives you a 2nd chance, do they do the same for unnecessary stops?
You are taking a serious risk by making unauthorized stops while you have your RDP. If you have recently learned that...
Does the RDP monitoring report count how many starts per day? Can that cause a violation?
Have an RDP for work but i stop at the starbucks on the way to work occasionally. I've never blown any sort of alcohol reading.
Attempting to disable the device so you won't get found out at Starbucks is tampering and would be recorded as a start...
If a minor is at a party and the police show up, is the minor able to refuse breathalyzation? How about at the hospital?
If a minor feels they are in need of medical attention, can they refuse the brethalyzer and go to the hospital since the hospital isn't able to judge whether you have been drugged?
The hospital might be able to judge whether you have ingested drugs or other illegal substances. You can refuse the...
