I have a MD license and was convicted of DUI reduced to reckless driving in VA. Would my PO ever call me to urine test me?
I was convicted of DUI reduced to reckless driving in Fairfax, VA, and I am a resident of MD. I was just wondering if POs bringing in to test people, who live out of state are common (an hour drive to Fairfax from where I live). How likely is that she is going to call me? Does completing ASAP mean there won't be random testing? Also, am I even allow to travel to different states (my license was suspended only in VA), or do I have to stay near Fairfax in case she decides to randomly test me?

I was in the car with a friend, it was a rental in my name, but she was driving. We got into an accident and I told the police officer that I was driving because I was the only registered driver for the rental. I broke my arm went to the hospital and eventually was written up for a DWI. Since I already told the police officer I was driving and was written up the ticket, should I go to court and lie? Help I don't know what to do.
First, ethically, I must advise you I am not licensed to practice in Maryland; and I do not practice in Maryland....
I'm looking at a conviction for a 2nd DUI in 8 yrs with a NY license while driving in NJ (first was in NY). Since the case started, I've moved down to MD for work. I'm wondering how this will play out if I'm convicted in the following cases: 1) If I keep my NY license, I would be suspended soon after a conviction and be unable to apply to MD for a hardship license. Would I be able to apply to NYS for a hardship license to allow me to commute in MD? 2) If I move to a MD license before conviction, would I be looking at any actions or holds from NY (since that was the licensing state at the time of the incident)? I would welcome any suggestions as to how best to proceed here.
If your license was valid in NY and the conviction in NJ is the equivalent of a DWI unclassified misdemeanor in NY,...
For example, could a lawyer put up flyers, hand out business cards to students on campus without first getting permission from the school?
The lawyer would be wise to have permission from the school first.
Can a bartender face charges for furnishing minor if the bar's bouncers check everyone's ID with a scanner and blacklight?
I bartend at a college bar. Recently a police officer told me that they are going to raid it for the 2nd time this semester, and if the owner of the bar has not purchased a device for photographing each ID and proving which customer came in with which ID every bartender will be arrested and charged. The bar has multiple bouncers working at once, and checks every ID manually, with a blacklight, and with a scanner. However many of the fake ID's are so advanced they pass all 3 of these checks. Last month, it was raided and there were about 100 underage people there. The police told me they don't have the right to search them, so they can't prove they gained access through a fake ID. As a bartender, can I face charges even though we thoroughly check ID's and I am merely doing my job?

How to answer a background check when I received a probation before judgement 15 years ago in MD for a DUI?
15 years ago I got a PBJ for a DUI in Maryland. It is not visible on the Maryland Judiciary Case Search if that means anything. The question reads as follows: "Have you ever been convicted of a felony, or any crime an element of which is dishonesty or fraud, under the laws of any state or of the United States (conviction includes a plea of guilty or plea of nolo contendere accepted by a court)?
My opinion is that you can answer "no." A PBJ is not a conviction and a DUI is not a felony. A DUI does not involve...
