I was 20 at the time of the incident, and the man was 4 years my elder. He got me into a 21+ bar and bought me numerous liquor drinks & shots. We had sex, though I was blacked out and only remembered pieces of the incident afterward. I became pregnant and only then did I figure out exactly what had happened that night after being told the exact events by the assailant. I received an abortion the following month. I never filed a legal complaint as I did not identify as a rape victim and because I stupidly trusted it was not a malicious crime. Only now, I suffer terrible anxiety because of the abortion and out of fear the assailant will tell friends and family about it. Also he was on felony probation at the time for drug related crimes.

I was arrested with the charge of underage consumption . I was at a party where a person was arrested outside ( everyone else was inside besides home owners who were 21 ) who was under 21 ( above 18 ) for being around alcohol .

They arrested all the minors inside myself being one of them . I was thrown on the ground , sustained minor injuries ( bleeding from my shoulder and bruising on my back ) , was never read my rights , or Breathalyzer / sobriety tested . Simply taken to jail and charged . Is there anything I can do ?

I was arrested for suspected DUI. I have both a passenger witness and I believe their car tape that will substantiate I was not DUI. I need a "model" so I can produce a motion for dui dismissal. This is my 1st time before the judge and no plea has been entered yet. I will be representing myself as I am a 100% disabled veteran without adequate resources immediately at hand.
You should not represent yourself unless its an absolute necessity. You can get a public defender if you qualify for...

I have a TN license, and got a DWI in NY. Since TN is not a compact member, will NY report it back to TN?
