Are cops allowed to stack DUI/DWI alcohol and drug charges against you for refusing to submit to a alcohol concentration test?
I was pulled over for a headlight, was sober but cops smelled marijuana on just my jacket. searched car, didn't find anything and while waiting for a female personal to search my person randomly started asking questions about alcohol. I stated multiple times that I had nothing to drink but they arrested me and at the station, I initially refused the test because I didn't understand how I failed the SFST than less than 2 mins changed my mind but the officer said because I signed the form I couldn't change my mind. They then charged me with everything under the DUI/DWI "bracket" (about 6 charges) saying he had to because I refused.

Since 2010, I was given a Driver's License by the MVA with a restricted condition "U", that states: "Not Acceptable For Federal Purposes" because my immigration status expired. I have a court date in 3 weeks and was wondering if I will even be let in in the courthouse. What should I do? Thank you.

Does the MVA require enrollment in the Ignition Interlock Program in order to get your license reinstated after a 2nd DUI?
I moved to MD in Sep. 2010. In Oct. 2010 I was arrested for a DUI on my out of state license. I was subsequently arrested for a 2nd DUI in Dec. 2010 on the same out of state license (Bad couple months). I went to court and plead guilty in May 2011. I successfully completed my terms of probation and was let off probation in Nov 2012, and have not had any legal issues since that second arrest in Dec 2010. One of the terms of my probation was to have the ignition interlock installed during the course of my probation if driving (which I didn't drive-therefore did not have one installed). I am now trying to get my MD license, and pulled my MD driving record based on my soundex number. On there it lists a restriction for the ignition interlock "indefinitely." Is the interlock still required?

MVA Interlock notice sent weeks after court says - "failure to comply will result in a suspension of your driver's license". For 0.15 bac is there any "voluntary" license suspension request/alternative (however long), instead of the assigned 6 month Interlock program? Thanks!

It has been over 30 days since my MVA hearing so I'm wondering if it's too late for me to request an appeal? Or if I have any options at this point?
