The probation dept. Sent a statement to the dmv in which they state they stand by their filling out of the blue paper in which the dmv requires me to either do an 8 hour class or 3 months of treatment. My dui was for alcohol. There was no blood test taken or any tests for anything other than alcohol. The officer in his reports the smell of cannabis but that's it. So now they have said to the dmv I was high on cannabis without evidence.. and I'm stuck taking a 3 month class for alcohol to get my license back over a cannabis statement when I had a valid cannabis is card.. and now the status is legal.

What happens if you have a car title signed over to you in the car, haven't transferred it over yet (and it's been many months), and you get pulled over for a DUI? No insurance and driver's license (up until this) was good. Do I get my car back? What happens now?

My brother-in law is homeless and has mental illness. He bailed himself out of jail recently (charges are assault in the 4th degree and harassment). He had his first pre-trial hearing today, but he appeared intoxicated and the judge ordered him to take a UA and BAC immediately. His probation officer administered the test and he failed. What happens next? Does this mean he will be taken back into custody today and forfeit his bail? Or will he just be assigned a new court date? I believe he is also currently on probation for a separate property crime, unrelated to these current charges and is not allowed to drink/use drugs.
if the judge did not order him into custody immediately, they may set a hearing date for the allegations, which could...
Yesterday, my uninsured car was totaled by a drunk driver while it was parked in front of my home. I was at work (I take the bus because my license was suspended). There were plenty of witnesses, as an extremely intoxicated man plowed into my car pushing it over 100 feet into another car resulting in back and front damage to my vehicle. It will not drive and the driver had OMNI insurance, who hung up on me multiple times yesterday. Upon researching them online, it seems as if they do not handle things in a timely matter. I need to know what my options are. The driver even had an interlock system in his car from prior DUI's! He was arrested on the scene. Please help.
This is NOT a criminal defense question. Sorry. Your options are limited anyway. What else can you do but file a claim?
