Is it illegal for a police officer to have two people use same breathalyzer straw while pulled over?
I was driving with a couple of friends an got pulled over because someone called in and said we were speeding. However we were not speeding anywhere around the where the cop pulled us over at so they had no probable cause to pull us over. They believed we were under the influence, so they gave me and two of my friends a field sobriety test and made us blow into the breathalyzer but made me and my friend blow into the same straw without changing them out or collaborating it. We all failed and I was charged with DWI and my friends were charged with MIPs. That is unsanitary and inaccurate.

What all should be stated in a letter to the Prosecuting Attorney if I am trying to get charges dropped?
Me and my boyfriend were in a car accident, and I got hurt. I refused to press charges, but now the state has charged him with felony assault. I talked to the assistant handling my case, and she said the most I could do is write a letter and try to get the charges dropped, and make it clear that I will not cooperate. My only question is what exactly to say in the letter to hopefully make it effective.
You and more importantly, your boyfriend should really consult with a criminal defense attorney before you do anything...
If there is plea of guilty to a first time DWI in a municipal court (for which I received a "SIS") is it considered a misdemeanor or infraction?
If you pleaded guilty to a DWI in municipal court, it's a misdemeanor.
I was recently pulled over by a Missouri Highway Patrolman and issued a ticket for a DWI. I was also issued a careless and imprudent ticket as well which was later dropped The officer gave me a field sobriety test and told me that I failed it. I was taken to the local police station and told I would be taking a breathalyzer. The officer had to respond to another call told let me leave without taking a breathalyzer when my husband arrived. I am asking this question as I feel that my lawyer has not been working for me. He seems to just want my money and for me to take a plea. I had to argue with him for him to get the careless and imprudent drop (wanted me to plea). I understand that it is the officer's word against mine; however the video of my field sobriety test has seemingly disappeared.
It is difficult for any lawyer to advise you of your options without reviewing every piece of evidence in your case,...
Will a witness statement be credible if the witness was knowingly drunk while making a written statement?
Im 18 and I didn't make a statement. Two drunk people made false statements aggainst me stating i had pulled a knife on them and took a car without permission then wrecked the car and admitted they were drunk to the officer while making the statements. i was in the car as a passenger and left when they asked if i would say i was driving because i was sober and had a license i refused and left the accident to go to my moms house one of them is 21 and on probation i believe for a felony and was drunk. the other one is only 13 and was drunk. i have charges pending they are for A. Tampering with a vehicle 1st degree B. Assault with a deadly weapon 2nd degree C. Leaving the scene of an accident Are their statements still credible in court
Credibility is an issue for the jury, and a subjective issue. I would say that they would tend to have relatively low...
