I got my car stuck in a ditch and I had to ditch my car because I had a few drinks before the happening. It was towed to a storage and towing facility.
It is possible that you may face charges of leaving the scene of an accident, if you admit to driving, but that is...
I have not been convicted. I'm still in a discovery stage of it with my attorney. Just curious if it will show up on my background check considering I have not been convicted.
It should show up that you have been "charged". It should not show up in a check for convictions. The type of record...

I was in a wreck in 2008, which resulted in 2 back surgeries, and knee surgery, so I was prescribed pain medication for a few years. After all surgeries, and pain management, I was put on Buprenorphine, to help body adjust, and also for acute back pain management. Every Rx I've had, were 100% legitimate. I was arrested for a 2nd DWI in 2013, my first DWI was in 2002. My probation officer wants a letter from my doctor explaining the need to be on this medication, and my PO said she wants to make a plan to get me off of this medication. I've have several UA's, and all were 100% clean. So I don't understand what the problem is. If it doesn't fail any of the "testing for" medications/substances, why is it an issue? Is she allowed (legally) to make decisions for my medical treatment?
Your PO is not a doctor and has no say in your medical care. As long as the medications are prescribed to you and you...
I am on probation for a DWI. One of the things required was to put an ignition Breathalyzer in my car. But I do not own a car and I have not had a valid license since my arrest so in my judgment It states that I must install one in my car within 7 days of owning or operating a vehicle . I do not drive at all. Probation is calling and saying that my boyfriend needs to install a Breathalyzer in his car, even though I can’t drive it, or they are going to make me wear an SCRAM devise. Both my lawyer and the DA’s office don’t agree with that and I have been on probation with no problems for 7 months and that only come up now. I don’t want to have to pay for a SCRAM devise, and if I’m forced to wear one can I sue, since it is not in my original judgment?
You can sue anyone you want. I don't see a legal cause of action here and doubt you'd find any lawyer willing to take...
What are the chances of me being able to stay out of jail?
Not good, unless you can win an acquittal on this one.
This is my very first DWI, and I plan on pleading no contest. I was wondering if I needed to hire an attorney or if it'd be okay to use the court appointed attorney.
It's up to you. Do you want a lawyer who has time to speak to you and spend time on your case? Hire a lawyer. If you...
