None. Miranda rights are not required for traffic stops unless and until you are placed under arrest and then only when...
My son is alcoholic and has 2 DUI's. Is there any way I can get his probation officer to require court ordered rehab?
He will not seek help on his own. He has no job or income so he cannot afford to pay his fine monthly, What will they do if he cannot pay the fine.? He is a good liar, so we don't know when he is telling the truth. He is almost 40 years old and has lost job, wife, house, car everything. He really needs Help. He has already been sentenced and served 10 days in jail (sentence was for 90 days but was released early) . He has a meeting with his probation officer in a few days and will be assessed at that time. We cannot afford any more rehab. We are retired and on a fixed income. We paid for him to go twice and he signed himself out both times, so he will only go if court ordered.
Unless the Judge ordered rehab to be a part of his probation, the probation officer does not have the authority to "...

Can I fight this DUI charge or what can I do?
. I am 21, in GA. I was hanging with some new friends, because I had just moved to a different location, and didn't know my way around. I had about 2-3 sips or a beer, and maybe a few more sips of a mixed drink. I was driving my car. I had missed the turn, and needed to turn around. When I turned, a cop pulled me over and told me that it was an illegal U-turn. I was not aware since I was new to the area. The cop requested a field sobriety test. He then put me in hand cuffs, and said he was arresting me for DUI. There was no female present. I was taken to the police station, where he forced me to take breathalyzer, without my consent. It read- 0.051. Afterwards, the cop told me that I would receive a fee of $300. I was never "arrested" or charged. He told me I was getting a citation, and to appear for the court date. He stated that the court was for the illegal U-turn. He drove me to my friends house, and he let my friends drive my car to their house. I appeared for court and this is my first offense, other than a failure to yield in a car accident. I plead guilty, but I didn't know it was for the DUI. I have 280 days to pay $1200, 40 hrs CS, DUI school, and suspended license.
You need to hire a lawyer asap! It sounds like you entered a plea to DUI without benefit of counsel and and as such...
2nd DUI in GA, if I move to NC, can I get a new state license?
I recently got a second DUI in Georgia (10-2015) and I've been told after serving my time/punishments my license will be gone for 2 years. I'm aware I may have to do DUI classes, but I can't wait two years to get my license back. So is it possible legally? Can I move to a new state and start over?
Do you really think NC would give a license to a two time DUI offender before they serve their suspension? Hell they...
Do I have a defense against DUI if I was forced at gunpoint to drive. And never left private property.
Was fishing with a friend on his families property. The guy that manages the property came down after we had went to sleep because we had been drinking and made us leave at gun point. said he didn't want any one there at night. He says he didn't call the cops, but before we pulled off the property a cop pulled in and asked us if we had permission to be there. They called the owner and he said we were allowed. Then he made me get out and preform field sobriety test, which he said I failed. He asked if I would take blood test and I agreed. Then took me to jail and said he changed his mind. Then I refused the Breathalyzer, because I wanted a blood test. He said he wasn't there to inform me of the law.
Coercion is a legal defense to crimes, but it will not apply under this set of facts. You may have other defenses to...
