My brother was charged with DUI first offense, on Friday night. He took the sobriety field test, and he passed it but the officer still arrested him because "he reeked of alcohol" and the officer could "smell it all over his breath". He did not take a breathalyzier. Can he get this dropped since, he passed the sobriety test.
Unfortunately, the State Attorney's Office does not just drop DUIs. Your brother needs to consider retaining a...
I was passenger and did have drinks, but said I would take a cab home. Cops said I was being taken in for the protection of myself or others. I was cuffed and brought to jail. When I got verbally angry at the station because they brought me there, they beat me. I was released in the morning. No arrest was ever made. I did make a complaint on the beating, How long do they have to investigate that?

I live in florida, had my attorney go to the court date which made the prosecutor mad since I was not there. explained I have no job/no $, living with my sister. if I turned myself in to Florida could I do my mandatory 10 days from UT and would it eliminate the 1 yr probation and the community service?

To make a short story shorter, it was the 11th of Feb, I was targeted by a Cop, and finally stopped, he claimed he saw me driving eratically, that was false but my license had been expired for about a month at that point. Anyways after creating a scene claiming he had smelled marijuana eminating from my vehicle and after sometime of him and hzis 8 other sheriff buddies appeared and ransacked my car and found nothing he instead fell back and had me charged for reckless driving/expired license etc. Well a few months ago I missed a court date. Now I have a warrant out for me on the F.T.A. So three charges I had actually been able to pay off 95% of my fines before this occured. So in the monetary sense I really dont owe much at all.
A reckless driving is a misdemeanor as is the failure to appear. You can avoid the warrant by getting an attorney to...
