Can i be charged with having a open container & a dui if i wasnt given a BAC test or a citation?
I was pulled over for improper use of a turn signal, when i stopped the cops asked almost immediately to search the car but never gave a reason. Nervously i let them search and they found a empty beer can under the front seat, but they let me go told me i would receive a ticket for the turn signal in the mail. Now im going to be arraigned for a open container & a dui.
You should immediately hire a lawyer, aas the facts you list do not support those charges. Avvo has them. Good luck.

Have you ever heard of probation terms being reduced due to a family member’s illness?
I have been on probation since January for a DUI (first offence). I have to attend AA 3 times a week and I test 4 times a week. My Dad was recently diagnosed with MDS and he requires a bone marrow transplant. He did find a match and has been admitted to the hospital. He will be in the hospital for about 30 days. After that he will require 24/7 care for about 1 month and then his required care will slowly dwindle. I am the only family member that lives in Michigan.
Yes, I've heard of probation terming being reduced or modified due to a family member's illness. Contact the attorney...

How bad would dui look to an employer compared
To other charges such as theft, fraud, assault or simple possession. I have a dui under controlled substance charge. I do qualify for a diversion program and will be able to expunge it in a year but in the time being how bad will a misdeameanor charge (not conviction) look to an employer?
It is going to depend on the employer. Generally, felonies are worse than misdemeanors and convictions are worse than...
I received a felony dwi and served 30 days. I was then put on probation. I applied for a move out of state and was denied.
I moved anyway. I know it's obviously a violation of probation. And a bench warrant is issued. I'd like to know what the penalties are. Is extradition a possibility? I now reside in PA. They have my living info in PA. I don't know how severe my actions of moving are. I'm looking to see what the full consequences are and then what I need to do to rectify them.
Not only is it a possibility but it is likely. If your felony DUI is an Oakland County and you picked the worst place...
