I was arrested for DUI first offense in the State of Mississippi. Can the prosecutor change the charges to a lessor offense?
I understand the State of Mississippi bars any plea bargains for a DUI charge. However, the prosecutor for the county I was arrested in is a mutual friend. He instructed me not to show up to court with a lawyer and that he will do his best to work out something with the arresting officer.
And I am sure he is thrilled that you are posting this information in a public forum for the world to see. Get a clue man.
My husband was sentenced to 6 years with all suspended but 13 months,he has served 5 months in the county jail so far .

It will depend on the amount of earned time he accrues, whether he is a trustee and other matters
I was recently stopped during a road block. The officer gave me a field test in which he said my eyes were shaky and I might be under the influence of marijuana. I was taken into custody, but never was given a drug test. Can I still be convicted even without a test?
Yes, it is possible to convict someone of a DUI without any scientific evidence. The evidence may depend on the...
Can a probation officer order someone to submit to a drug test if the judge does not order the said person to submit to one.
The probation officer told said person that they had to take a random drug test, and pay the 30.00 dollar fees. The person did not pay the fee on the next visit and explained to the officer that the judge did not order them to submit to one. The probation officer became angry and told said person they could not leave without submitting an urine sample and that they would have to pay for it on their next visit, also the officer did not ask what medication that the person may have been on since this does effect the test outcome.
It would be best to refer to the terms and conditions of your probation. This is a document -- a contract-- between...

I couldn't sleep and a family/retired MD gave me medicine with "drowsiness" as a side effect. Mug shot in paper . public drunk
He thought pill would make me sleep. It knocked me off my feet (muscle impairment,wide awake). I thought I was having a stroke . I was 60 yo and had high BP. I couldnt find my cell ph and walked into my yard on dead end street in last house ,saw neighbor, asked him to call an ambulance for me. He did and I sat down . When I saw vehicle lights I stood up and stepped into the str. First vehicle was a cop. He blocked the medical guys from even talking to me and when I and the amb guys objected, he arrested me. No tests were given . He said I was not to be charged and to be let out "free ticket" after I "slept it off" till 6 am. Ended up with my pic in paper as public drunk. Can I do anything? pic in paper hurt and estranged my adult and college aged kids?
Likely no. It's not false information. You were arrested. You might have a lawsuit against the doctor, though..
Out of State DUI - Currently live in a neighboring state, but already in the process of moving cross-country
Recently I was pulled over for speeding and charged with a DUI in TN. My hearing is next month. I have retained council in TN. I live in MS, but my job is being transferred to the east coast. I understand that if convicted, TN will not take my license, but MS will. Then things with the license will be complicated because I will not be living in MS in a couple of months. I'm more concerned about how probation will work? Will TN care if I'm not living in MS anymore (as long as i'm flying back to attend classes and meetings) I'm not worried about expenses as keeping my job is my priority. (for the long run) Any advice will be appreciated. My TN attorney is only focused on TN and my MS attorney is taking a wait and see attitude. Should I call an attorney in the new state too?
You already have an attorney in TN and should ask any and all questions about the case to your attorney. When you get...
