Alright I was charged with dwi and marijuana possession, searched, and no miranda rights.
After a sobriety test, the officer asked me if he'd find anything illegal, I said no, he then felt my pockets and pulled out a baggy of marijuana, I didn't consent to a search, and I thought they couldn't take out my personal property without asking ME to do so, (unless it be a weapon) , I showed no sign of danger that would even provoke him to search me, he placed me under arrest and stuck me in the cruiser without reading me my rights THEN asked me to consent to a drug test, which ("not knowing my rights to silence" I agreed to... is there a case here?

Can I be convicted of DUI as a passenger if vehicle was already stopped and me and the driver had already exited the vehicle
My girlfriend and I pulled up in front of house. She(driver) and I(passenger) got out and began to unload groceries etc. when police pull up and immediately come after me, assuming I was driving. Apparently she was driving with her headlights off leaving the store about 1/4 mile down street. I feel like because I smelled of alcohol and was a little obnoxious that they were determined to arrest me. Driver Can and Will testify to driving the car. First I wasn't driving, 2. Car was parked, 3. Not running, 4. No keys in ignition. 5. Neither my self or driver were in car. It feels like officer made a big mistake but once they determined I had been drinking all I could do is try my best to stay calm and cooperate as best I could.
Can you be charged? Yes! Can you be convicted? Yes!!! Can you fight it?? ABSOLUTELY!!!. This isn't baseball....
Received a second charge of underage possession when already dealing with a first charge? What is going to happen to me?
Back in February I received a charge of underage possession when drinking in my dorm room with friends. We all received charges and recently went to court and received 75 hours of community service. This past weekend I made the horrible mistake of being caught outside of a fence at a party where the police caught me under the influence of alcohol. I received a second charge just 4 days after going to court for the first one. I do have an attorney (Using the same one that I had for my first charge). What type of punishment from the courts am I looking at now?
You really should be asking him/her this question. It is why you have hired him/her right? The key to answering your...
