I'm in a convenient store at 7:40 Pm using the ATM, the Officer enters the store about 7:45 Pm. I then go to the counter with my Cheetos as the Officer approaches me from behind and says: I would like to speak with you outside please! I agreed and following my purchase of snack went out front to speak with the Officer. While in the gas island area the Officer stated he observerd the vehicle speeding and asked for my drivers lic. and reg. I went into the car retrieved them and gave them to the Officer. While I waited I enjoyed my snack at the rear of my car. He returned and asked me to do the FST, following this he arrested me and said your going to the hospital for a blood test.

Given that I will be completing ACT program here in Montana will this be considered a repeat offense for ACT thus requiring treatment referral? I was convicted of DUI in Oregon 8 years ago and again in Oregon this past year.
Thank you in advance for sage words of wisdom regarding completing ACT here in Montana and specifically if I will be treated as a repeat or first time offender in the program.
Contact the local bar association they will get you in touch with some pro bono attorneys.
I was convicted of a misdemeanor a few years ago. Just this past year the judge that convicted me was arrested for accepting bribes during a certain few years. My case fell within this time-frame. Can I get my case dismissed since the judge's integrity is in question?
That may or may not affect your case. I assume you entered a voluntary plea of guilty to the misdemeanor offense and...
