Can I get an attorney appointed to me by the court for a misdemeanor DUI, public drunk, failure to comply and using profanity?
I was sitting in my vehicle on a rural country road talking to my elderly mom at 7:44 pm when a cop pulled up behind me and got out of his vehicle and came up to my truck and ask me to step out, put my hands on the hood, then patted me down, took me to jail (he said), for public drunk. When I got to the jail and I verbally protested his action(s), he then trumped up the charges, DUI, failure to comply (what), using profanity on a public Road? All I did was protest being arrested because I was not drinking alcohol, only sprite, I was not driving, only sitting, the vehicle was not even running. They took me to the jail and they stripped search me, they put me in a holding cell until next day. They taped a ticket up on the cell glass door that showed a DUI charge.

Would my attorney have a copy of all the charges I got for a DUI?
I received a DUI. I had friends in the vehicle with me and I had a bottle of whiskey in the truck as well. The officer took it for evidence but I think he said he forgot to write it down. I gave my parents the money and they said they'd take care of it since I'm in school. I never told my parents I had friends in the truck with me or that I had whiskey with me. I am underage and blew a .5. Would my attorney know about a possession charge even if I didn't tell them?
Your attorney will know. This question needs to be addressed to your lawyer if you are in fact represented. As a...

Visa revocation for non-immigrant with DUI arrest
I have a TPS with EAD and it is time for my extension. I was arrested for DUI in jan 2013 but I still have my case pending on court. I got the TPS apporved on end of 2015. I explained the pending case of my DUI arrest with required documents to get my TPS approved on dec 2015 to the USCIS.

Will this affect me if I file green card throuh my US citizen wife next year?
