For the charge of DUI marijuana (less safe) If blood was taken, at 14% THC is there any possibility of being found not guilty?
I approached a road block, odor was smelled but nothing was found. Field sobriety has no physical evidence of impairment. I honestly am innocent and was not impaired while driving! I frequently smoke marijuana and am curious if that possibly has any factor in my blood test results or in the actual impairment level. I basically just want to know if I have a good chance to be found not guilty or not?
Absolutely! That's a very low amount. Bases on the facts you gave you certainly have a chance at being found not...
Anyway to keep D.U.I from showing up on background check?
I was convicted of a D.U.I in 2008 in Cobb County Georgia, no accident involved or anything like that but I am currently searching for employment, and I am honest about this on all my applications and I'm pretty sure it is affecting my ability to obtain employment. I met all the requirements made by the court and have not been in any trouble since. Is there anyway to get this off my record or keep it from showing up on background checks. I don't think it is fair that one mistake is making it impossible for me to find employment.
Sorry, but you cannot get a conviction removed from your criminal history.

DUI less safe drugs and roadblocks
I was stopped at a roadblock shortly after smoking marijuana. I did have it in my possession and my blood was tested. I had also taken an unprescribed adderall previously that day. In my understanding, they must prove that I was a "less safe" driver because of the marijuana. How can this be done if I was stopped at a roadblock? Also, how will the adderall come into play (if at all)?
Most prosecutors will take the "any in your system" approach. But you are correct about less safe, it is difficult if...
Clearing a DUI warrant for a non domicile
Dear sirs I am an English national who was working in Georgia on an H1 B visa from 2001 to 2002. I was arrested for a DUI in 2001 and paid my fine and attended court. I thought that the matter was closed however I have taken a vacation in the USA twice in the last few years and every time I get stopped for an outstanding warrant. Is there any way I can get this charge removed? If it's not possible to have the charge removed would there be a chance of being denied entry to the USA by border control? As mentioned I get pulled and questioned by border guards but have been allowed entry but I would like to get this warrant closed out or removed if possible. I'm planning a honeymoon in Seattle this fall and would like to have this cleared before then if possible.
