If the stop was illegal, then yes, any evidence that the officer collected as a result of the stop is likely inadmissible.
I am taking the state exam for a job at the DMV. I got a DUI 15 years ago. Will that disqualify me from getting a job at the DMV?

I am currently trying to get my license back but I have to finish 18 months of HART. Will I see jail time?

My daughter was just picked up for her second DUI in 2 months. She hasn't even been to court yet on the first one. The car was impounded. Blew .9 1st time, 1.9 this time.

I'm moving from CA to WA next week and was told by the CA DMV that I could complete a "1650 waiver packet" to waive the requirement for in-state, in-person DUI classes (I got a very low misdemeanor DUI here in CA late last month). In reading about that online it seemed possible to get another license, at least a restricted one, in my new state. But I contacted WA's DMV and they said I wouldn't be eligible for anything until I had cleared things up in CA - and they have to remove me from the "Problem Drive Pointer System National Driver Register." Are they ever going to do that if I don't meet their class requirements? Am I ever going to be eligible for a license, even a restricted one, in WA? Thanks for any help.
