My son was charged with an ovi. He refused the breath test.

my son was charged with an ovi. He refused the breath test. He had a previous charge in 2011 where his BAC was under the limit and the court still prosecuted him. The public defender had him plead to physical control in 2011. I think he would still be eligible for a public defender for the current case.He is scheduled for a hearing in Mayors Court on Thursday. If he pleads not guilty it will go to the municipal court and he can get a public defender, right. He said the police officer had to give him the field sobriety tests 3 times before he determined he should ask for a breath test. The police pulled him over for not displaying his front licence plate in the proper place. There were no other citations.My thought is that he should plead not guilty and ask for a public defender then go to trial, since it won't cost him for the attorney. He would have 1 year licence suspension in Ohio for not taking the breath test anyway. He would claim that he refused the test because he would be prosecuted either way.

I was involved in a theft case. I had detained the thief and

I was involved in a theft case. I had detained the thief and prior to the police arriving, he shook me and fled. I pursued him and eventually found him hiding behind a sign in some bushes. I again detained him and he began to resist. I did not strike him, only shook him and commanded him to stop. His head struck the sign and he became unconscious. His friend had tailed the pursuit. I then flagged down the passing police officer and explained the situation. The thiefs friend, who was highly intoxicated, told a blatant lie to the police which ultimately got me arrested for battery.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Wisconsin, and approximately a year ago.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I have. The problem is I had marijuana and a pipe on me at the time of my arrest. IJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just want to know what avenues I can pursue. I feel my arrest was based on false accusations and I should have never been arrested or searched.

Last Saturday night, my 16-year-old daughter(usually an

Last Saturday night, my 16-year-old daughter(usually an upstanding teen) had few friends over. My wife went out with her friends for her birthday and I decided to go out to play tennis in the neighboring town. Meanwhile, my daughter decided to pop open some vodka (her friend brought into the house while we were away). Soon thereafter, two girls were intoxicated. My daughter called my wife who was in the city at the moment and told her that two girls are in a bad shape and one of them is not responsive. Their mothers were with my wife at the moment. They advised my daughter to call 911 immediately, my wife turned around the car to rush back home (an hour away). My wife found me and told me to rush home. When I got home the police and ambulance were here. Two girls were rushed into hospital.They were OK and went home the next day. I am being summoned for a disorderly person offence for allowing/leaving my juvenile daughter who hosted a party for 4 people serving an alcohol to underaged persons.I have a date to appear for hearing in court. My question why I am still being summoned even if I was not aware of the party? Do I need a lawyer? What type of lawyer? Are there going to be a record for my daughter and two other girls?

On 10/29/16 my friend got in a verbal argument with another individual, which turned into a physical fight. The situation is under investigation because it is unclear which individual got physical first. Everyone was intoxicated who was involved. I know they have been contacting many people who were there as witnesses for statements. I got hit trying to hold my friend back, but I am unsure if I ever hit back. My friends all tell me I did not. I do not know if charges are being put on me or not. I have not received a call or any notice. What should I do if I am contacted by police for a statement?

I live in Corpus Christi,TX and I have a Court date Nov

I live in Corpus Christi,TX and I have a Court date Nov 18,2016 for a Misdemeanor in 2004 for Public Intoxication. At the time I was homeless and do not even remember the incident. The charge is over $2,900 and I am pleading Not Guilty. My question is is there a statue of limitations in Texas for this type of offense (due to this is over 12 years ago).
