My daughter (21) was arrested for public drunk last night at Ole Miss vs Alabama game except she was not drunk.
She had only 2 drinks but has a seizure disorder which causes her to pass out. It is a form of epilepsy. She work up disoriented to the cops asking her questions and eventually putting handcuffs on her. They tried to let her call one of her friends to come get her but when she comes out of the seizures she doesn't always understand her surroundings and some of that part of the night is fuzzy. She doesn't drink much because she can't with the depekote. They put her in handcuffs and took her to hail and when she finally was coherent enough to tell them about her disorder and that she had t taken her meds for the day they said they would have a nurse come but that never happened so they clearly didn't believe her. Her roommate came and bailed her out . What are her options?
She should obtain a good local attorney and hopefully they can make this charge go away. That is a shame that they are...
i was pulled over for my tag. searched, vehicle towed spent eight hours in jail for dui w/bonding out without having alcohol or drugs or testing. I plead guilty in court , only to be locked up again because i didnt have the 700 dollars for my other tickets in court and was set a trial date. This is 3 hours away from my home and i didnt have a way to make it so i called and was informed it was nothing they can do, So now i got a letter saying im convicted of a dui and i have to go to alcohol safety classes and i dont even drink. Im a veteran i respect the laws but i dont feel like this right at all. What do i do?
I'm having a hard time understanding why you pled guilty to a "wrongful" DUI? Please tell me how that happens.
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...
Do I have to take the masap and VIP classes twice if I have 2 dui's? My 2nd one was dropped to DUI 1st.
I got 2 dui's within months of each other. I plead guilty to both of them but my second was dropped down to DUI 1st, not 2nd. So since it's only a 1st, do I have to pay and attend the masep and VIP classes twice or am I able to do it once and knock both cities out at once?? (One DUI was in long beach and the other in diberville)
I would suggest contacting the lawyer that represented you on both cases. If not available, contact a Mississippi DUI...
Why wasn't child services called when a drunk father assaulted his 17 year old son resulting in a broken arm ?
Police where called by the hospital and asked the minor if he wanted to press charges. What legal authority would a 17 year old have ? and how long after 18 would one in Mississippi have to press charges?
I don't practice in Mississippi but generally in cases of child abuse the hospital would be required to call child...

i was arrested for a dui charge going on three years ago. my question is this. before the matter could be settled in court i was involved in an accident that put me in the hospital for over a year. i then went through rehab and such and now its been roughly three years since the charge. when does the statue of limitations come in to play in the state of Mississippi? ”
The arrest tolls the statute. You can make a speedy trial argument, but it likely will be denied as that much of the...
