    Where did this happen? Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Always plead not guilty and then consider hiring an attorney.

  • If there was no evidence of maryjuana use no odor nothing found in truck or on person how can you be charged with a dui with

    only a urine test

    Matisyahu’s Answer

    It would depend on what the police claim the probable cause was 1) to stop you and 2) to arrest you. The officer might claim there was an odor of marijuana in the car.

    Did you admit to smoking it? Did the offer do a field sobriety test or check for symptoms of being under the influence?

    What did the urine test indicate? Marijuana, alcohol, or what? Typically you wouldn't find out for a month or so after the arrest.

    Contact an attorney ASAP.
