Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
got a public appointed to me but nervous because everyone says they are paid by the state so why would they work hard to get it plead out.
one more question in the state of NV first time possession charge felony and then DUI do you think they would drop the felony charge or could you give me a scenario no prior record on anything .
I live on a private street they had road blocked walked up to them to see if I could get by, that's when they smelled alcohol and asked if I had been drinking said had couple beers they detained me for an hour out there then did a breath test. then took me in did blood test then and that's when they found it. I had borrowed a friend money he paid me back but wrapped some stuff in the money and wanting to get home paid no attention that he had done that shoved it in pocket so I could get home I live half a block from bar.
do you have any advise for questions that I should ask my PD. Thank you
