DUI by cannabis Did field sobriety but refused breathalyzer and drug screen
I got pulled over and the cop said he smelled weed, he asked me to get out and he did a field sobriety test. Then he asked if I could take a breathalyzer and a drug screen and I said I wanted a lawyer and he took me to jail. But he did not find any marijuana! Two days after I got out of jail I took a drug screen from a facility and I was negative for marijuana. Are my chances good?

If I am convicted of a DUI in one city and live in another city, how is probation handled?
The DUI took place in Carrollton and I live in Doraville. I am aware I should hire an attorney in the West GA area, but, if said lawyer cannot reach a plea deal with the solicitor and we have to plead guilty with a year of probation, how does that work since I live in location A and it was in location B? I'm also curious how some people seem to be able to choose where they do community service instead of it being assigned automatically. Thank you, kindly!
If you are placed on probation you will be assigned a probation officer who can answer your questions and work out...
