As a minor, do I have the right to have a legal guardian present?
I was at a party the other night where underage drinking was taking place. After coming in to the house under the suspicion that he "smelled alcohol," the officer asked me how old I was. Since I am 17, the officer let me call my parents. Then, he asked for my ID, to which I told him that I would like to wait until my parent was present since I am a minor. The officer then handcuffed me because he says I was incorrect. In addition, I was never asked if I had consumed any alcohol. As far as the cop knew, I was only present at a party where underage drinking was taking place.
No. The police can question you and arrest you without a parent being present. You may have some defenses based on...
Will pre-dated violations affect current unsupervised probation that I was just placed on last week?
I got a first offense non-aggressive DUI in West Virginia in January 2013 - I pleaded a conditional guilty charge because WV let me enter their First Offense DUI Deferral Program where I have to do a mandatory 165 days of interlock and ASAP classes. Upon completion of interlock (around September for me), they will dismiss the charges and then a year from that date, I can motion for my arrest record to be expunged. I got a reckless driving in VA in December 2014 and was convicted/placed on unsupervised probation by VA for the period of April 6, 2015 (my court date) - April 6, 2016. VA doesn't know of my DUI because I entered the deferral program. Therefore, am I at risk of violating my unsupervised probation? I am extremely nervous even though the date of my violation is January 2013
You are in no danger of violating Virginia's unsupervised probation because the DUI in West Virginia occurred before...

I got 6 tickets in one night, some being -driving without a drivers license, -driving under the influence, -driving with open alcohol in the car, -lying to the officer about my age, -underaged drinking and a few more.
