First-offense DUI after car crash, rolling papers may have been in car, can this be used against me?
I was recently arrested for a DUI after crashing my car into a snow bank. This is my first offense, and it was simply a result of foolishly not eating at all before, during, or after drinking. Thankfully no other person or property was damaged except my car. However, I'm worried that there may have been rolling papers in my car at the time of my arrest. As far as I know, there were no illegal substances in the car, but I'm worried that the presence of rolling papers might imply I was under the influence of drugs, which I was not. Is it possible that the presence of rolling papers could be used against me, even without the presence of illegal substances? How can I prove that I wasn't under the influence of drugs in the event that illegal substances were in my car without my knowledge?
Unless the rolling papers are specifically mentioned in your police report I would not think that they would become an...

I'm "suspended for life",3rd d.u.i.. I live in Ct. The last two were in 2001. Do I need interlock to ride 49cc scooter-moped?
suspended for life means a hearing at M.V.D. I was suspended back in 2001 for third D.W.I. I have become fully disabled since 2002. Since then I served 1 year of incarceration where I was allowed to attend an alcohol treatment and education program that was required by the court. It seems that after 12 years absolutely nobody has any record of this, including M.V D. , I'm a totally different person these days with alcohol use way behind me. I can hardly walk and need a simple moped-scooter-49cc to relieve the burden to the tax payers for local transportation around town for doctors and small necessities. I can't afford a car or motorcycle on tiny fixed income, so do I need another alcohol class and an interlock device to occasionally use it for very local errands ?
This is an easy answer. They don't make IIDs for mopeds or motorcycles, so the question is mute.

I was pulled over by a police officer after having 4 beers. I passed 3/4 driving tests but I stopped at missisipi #21 (which i shouldn't have because I was supposed to go endless). What should I do now? I need my drivers license to go to work...
I doesn't matter how many field sobriety tests you passed. Or how many beers you had.....Stop posting the details....
Do I need an attorney for a drinking while driving offense? No DUI. What punishment(s) am I most likely to face?
I was pulled over for rolling through a stop sign. The officer saw an open beer in my cup holder. I was given a sobriety test, which I passed (no B.A.C. taken). I have no previous moving or alcohol related violations/infractions, and a completely clean record (i.e., I've never been arrested before).
At the very least you should set up a consultation with a criminal lawyer to discuss your case. Especially for a...
I had to plead guilty to a DUI that I am not guilty of?
My urine was clean and I don't drink alcohol at all the cops actually made stuff up. I know that you hear this all the time . But I have the paperwork to prove it . But if I didn't plead guilty then they wanted to put me in jail for 4 and a half years .
If that is the case, then you need to retain the services of a criminal defense attorney right away. If you cannot...
