I'd like to know advice on giving officers the least amount of incriminating advise, but also know what I do have to tell them and what they can't force me to answer/do
The best approach to take is to not drink and drive. Otherwise, retain a criminal defense attorney. IF you come...
Basically I was let go of a DUI and the officer didn't even tell me what my BAC was. I went to jail and my car got towed. I'm only charged with unlawful consumption of alcohol by minor. Could it be changed to a DUI after a judge questions you? and what should I expect for the penalty for underage drinking?
Since you are underage, you need not be charged with a DUI because any alcohol consumption at all is an offense. Do...

I understand an RDP is very strict. If you have nobody to take the car in for you, how would you accomplish this requirement if you cannot drive there? Thanks.
You should call the baiid provider to assist you.
There was no accident or injury, the car was pulled over because the rear license plate light was out. They ended up giving my sister, who was driving my car, a DUI because they said they smelled alcohol and she refused the field sobriety tests. The next day I went and got my car out of the tow yard. Would they make a claim on my insurance based on this?
If there was nobody else involved, nobody would make a claim.
