I got a marijuana DUI, but walk-n-turn on shoulder, bad weather, balance test on shoulder as well. What are chances?
Marijuana DUI, first offense ever. Pulled for unsafely passing emergency vehicle (cop had car pulled over for speeding, I and cars in front of me had to maneuver around as his car was onto the highway) He performs five field tests (walk-n-turn, hgn, finger-to-nose, stand on one foot and count to 30 seconds). He opted not to take me to hospital for blood test. Walk-n-turn administered on should of highway in 18 mph winds, rain, 40 degree temps and gusts to 30 mph. I was wearing slip-ons. He writes on the report that I can't keep my balance and have a heavy sway. Despite this, he marks me down as walking a straight line (an imaginary one), not using my arms for balance, not starting before told to and not stopping during the test. On the HGN, I pass 3 out of 4.

Could I get in trouble for this?
Today I was driving around a back road and dropped my drink in the floor I bent down to pick it up and my car had drifted halfway into the other lane. There was a truck coming so I whipped my car back into my lane as fast as I could and the truck turned around and followed me. I had pulled into a parking lot and I didn't notice the truck until it was behind me. I guess it had wrote down my license plate number. I never hit the drunk or anything. There was no accident. So could I get in trouble for this?
It all depends on if the trucker reported anything and what he claimed he observed. There's nothing you can really do...

Can a Judge sentence a DWI driver that has taken a plea deal if his daughter was killed by a drunk driver.
Wouldn't he be prejudice to the case because of what happened to his daughter?
This would most likely have no impact on the DWI sentence. In fact, I know some judges that might take a harsher...
How Should I Handle DWI's & Probation at Custody Mediation?
I am fully prepared for mediation, or at least I thought I was until last night when I decided to run a criminal background check on my ex. I had already prepared a parenting agreement to take to mediation. But I am now thinking I need to make some drastic changes to the agreement before sitting down with the mediator. I discovered that he is currently on supervised probation due to having a DWI in 2013. Prior he's also served 30 days of community service, was arrested for driving on a revoked license, and has several tickets for no registration, no inspection, and no seatbelt, speeding, and reckless driving.
