Police came to a home on a noise complaint. While there they discovered a party was taking place and there were minors who had been drinking. They did not catch any of the minors with alcohol in their immediate possession, but they lined them up outside and asked each one if they had been drinking. Those that answered yes were issued a ticket for minor consuming alcohol. Those that said no were forced to take a breathalyzer test. If they failed they were issued a ticket. My question is: If none of these minors were read their Miranda rights, or told they could refuse the breathalyzer, will these tickets stand up to a court challenge?

I went to pick up a prescription, when 9 cop cars pull up to

I went to pick up a prescription, when 9 cop cars pull up to the drive through pharmacy, I was picking up a water pill which they said was an fake Rx called in. I had been at work all day and had to get my kids, my son has special needs. I had to get them. They were yelling at me. And I asked them several times if I was under arrest, they kept saying no. I asked several times while crying hysterically if I was under arrest and they said No. I told them I at work all day, and exhausted and needed to get my kids, they told me to grow up, I asked are you searching my car? As I was crying and they said he's going to move it, they would not let me get anything in mr car, they still did not read me my Miranda right nor put me under arrest. They pulled my car into a spot at cvs. But they locked my purse and everything in the car. After being questioned they told me they found two pill bottles in my purse. However my purse nor my car was at the police station. So they went through it obviously looked through it before I was read my rights, before i was put under arrest or read my rights is that illegal? I never said they had permission to go through my stuff when they pulled up, I asked them in the interview after they mentioned that

My wife works at a correctional facility as a nurse.

My wife works at a correctional facility as a nurse. Apparently a coworker may have brought in contraband. Some how my wife is caught up in this. She doesn't know any details. But she was interviewed. After a few questions, which she couldn't answer, was read her Miranda Rights. At that point she opted to not answer anymore questions. They debated whether or not to take her to booking. Eventually decided not, but stated they would get a warrant the following day. At this point, we still don't know what is going on. She is employed by a contractor, but we have been unable to establish any communication with them. Do we need to be proactive and retain an attorney? We're clueless as to what to do.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: Oklahoma. At the moment we don't even know if a warrant was issued or if they were just trying to pressure information out of her.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
