Drove into a sobriety checkpoint. Did not notice if everyone was being stopped or if there was profiling. Am over 30/M, look about 25, was alone. Trooper approached vehicle, asked "how are you doing?" Put vehicle in park, turned on overhead light, rolled window down all the way, did not turn engine off, put hands on wheel. He asked again, I said "fine, how can I help you?" He asked if I had anything to drink, I said "no". He asked where I was heading. I told him (town name). He said that is an exciting place and that he has spent a lot of time there and he asked what part I lived in, I told him and he said again that he has spent a lot of time there and asked what part I lived in. I told him not the deep part. He let me go. I feel like he was profiling me as poor white trash. What's best?
Nothing. You were not arrested or charged. Nothing in your post indicates anything other than a routine sobriety...
An intoxicated woman was pulled ovr, charged with a DUI, and made a statement that resulted in a search warrant of an unrelated residence. Is it legal to obtain a search warrant on the statement of an intoxicated woman who was charged with DUI?
Sure, happens all the time. Clearly, even in her intoxicated condition she provided sufficient details that convinced...
20 of my classmates from my University were also given citations and do not know what whether it is better to pay the processing fees or to do community service/ other options in order to get it expunged faster.
There are benefits to both approaches. I think you would be best served to avoid the conviction and expungement...
A received a DUI a few months back in Morgantown WV, and was placed in the first timers program, which requires me to get an interlock placed in my car and take AA classes. I am currently living in NJ. How do I got about finding the classes in my state? What are the requirements, and can the classes be taken online? Thank you in advanced!
You can find local AA classes online by AA.org. My understanding of AA is that it is more of a meeting, and not really...
My husband was arrested for a DUI on September 18, 2010. Discrimination and harrassment were involved on the officer's part (I was in the car with him, so was a witness). We also have reason to believe the breathalyzer test was faulty/administered incorrectly/recorded innacurately and/or that the officer falsified evidence. Closely following the arrest, the officer was charged with harassment (of someone else, not us) and two counts of child molestation and fled the country with a warrant out for his arrest. (Sounds like a soap opera, right?) Our lawyer told us that now we just have to wait for a court decision in the officer's absence. But it's been over 4 years! How long can a court decision drag out?
Trust your lawyer. If the state takes no action for a period of time, your attorney may be able to get the case...
I be charged DUI when thousands of people drive on soboxone every day. But I have no prescription. My boyfriend was with me and my daughter was released with him. Am I being treated fairly?
Anything is possible. The cop may have had a preliminary result when he left the hospital, but I doubt it. Whehter a...
I was ticketed on the scene for suspected DUI after crashing my car. Blood was taken at the hospital, which was clean, and my DUI was dismissed in court. I was not aware that the DMV had suspended my license until AFTER the deadline to appeal. How can I get my license back without having to take a DUI class, since I never even had a DUI?
Have you been to the DMV yet with this quetion? Take along court documents showing the case was dismissed and that the...
