I have been charged with trying to purchase a gun by a

I have been charged with trying to purchase a gun by a restricted person (which I am not, and I was not purchasing anything) , and various drug charges of possessing controlled substances, which were in a vial in my pocket ,and to which i have prescriptions!!! Also the pistol I had in my pocket was a very small 22cal. and I forgot it was even there. My wife, son ,and I went to a car show in Manti, Utah on June 7th 2016, and I had 4 drinks before we went into the park. For some reason I passed out. I woke up in the Gunnison Hospital. I subsequently found out I have atrial fibrilation and require daily Warfarin therapy to prevent strokes and/ or heart attacks. I am to check into the jail in Gunnison next wednesday the 17th by 9 A.M. (yes, it took a long time for my charges to arrive) and then go to the Court at 10 a.m. Should I call them and tell them they have the wrong fellow on the weapons charge-I am NOT a restricted person, and have a right to the drugs found in my pocket. Thank you very much! P.S. I was told by the Police Officer delivering the document that I should just wait and go down and answer charges then. Is that really the best? it seems a waste of time on both parties. Oh, I was also charged with public intoxication. Again, Thank you kindly, Ray Linner

In the last 7 days i have been pulled over even though i was

in the last 7 days i have been pulled over for DUI even though i was not drinking the first time i had 1 beer , i was suspended from driving my truck for the night and i had, had only 1 beer . no tests were performed. earlier this Friday evening i was pulled over for a confrontation at a liquor store that i do not patron at all. apparently the owner called and complained that i was drinking and creating a hassle, and that i was d riving in this shape. First of all I do not patron this liquor store so there was no confrontation, second, i had only 2 beer in 2 to 3 hours, thirdly how much knowledge of my state can you have from between 100 and 300 feet away and inside looking out a tinted window at between 7 and 9 pm. . I was told as soon as i got out of my vehicle that i was under arrest for drinking and driving there not meranda rights before i got in the vehicle there was no test performed . i was simply relieved of my belongings and taken to the detachment and presumed guilty. the only legal quote i was informed of was that i would be charged for impaired if i did not comply with the Breathalyzer. i complied and even though i only blew .018 i was still suspended from driving and . i was firmly told that i could still be charged with impaired even though i clearly passed the breathalyzer , i was not even half of the .05 legal limit . this one one police officer is rude and angry and clearly looking for some thing to charge me with. i have no criminal record and i have kept my nose clean and don't bother anyone. but i stand up for my self and woman's rights and equality . i live in grande cache were it is still 1959 and women should be seen and not heard. I have even had to bring up a gender discrimination case at my place of work and won witch did not make me a favored constituent in the community. now my question is can they just haul me off with no meranda rights and suspend me from driving with less than .02 alcohol in my system. and can i sue for harassment if this happens on a continuous cycle.thank youTammy Harwood

I am in California visiting from Arizona and was hanging out

Hi. I am in California visiting from Arizona and was hanging out at the Mission Beach with some friends today. We were driving on the beach, and cops approached us. I am 19 years old, and when they asked for ID, since they asked me first and I kinda panicked I handed them my brothers id which states he is 23. They took it no problem and wrote the ticket because we look alike. I am obviously gonna pay the fine right away and all. However, I believe my brother is on probation and doing very well and I don't want this to hurt how far he has come. I need to know if this is going to show up with his probation and if so what to do. Thank you
