Does the arresting officer have to be present in court for a dui case?
does the arresting officer have to be present in court in a dui case? because he wasn't and when I asked the judge, prosecuting attorney they totally blew me off? And another officer came in and said he was there for the prosecution and was not on seen or even working when the arrest happened in fact the only officer on duty was my arresting officer! And he was no where to be found not in the court or building! When brought to the attention again that I wanted to know if my arresting officer was supposed to be present I was again blown off! So what should I do? I thought I had the right to ask my arresting officer questions but the prosecutor flat out denied me of that! Do I have any rights on this and can I do any thing about it??

Lost my license in 1996 due to a DUI manslaughter. Wanting to know how I can get it back.
Lost my License indefinitely due to DUI manslaughter. This all happened in Florida in January 1996. I have been out of prison after a little more than 9 years served. I contacted Florida DMV but was given no real answer how to get it back. I was told I was eligible to get it back. I just don't know what to do. I now live in West Virginia.

Possibility of underage consumption charge being dropped.
Over the weekend I was stopped by an officer and given an underage consumption ticket with a court date on March 17th. The officer said to me personally "If you just show up to the court date the charge will be dropped". There was a friend with me when he said this. I am turning 21 on March 1st and he said it will be an early birthday present. Do you think he was saying that just to get me to show up to court or is there an actual possibility that the charge can be dropped.
You should hire an attorney to represent you on this charge
