    You need to find out if the test was a screening test (that can have a false positive) or was the test result confirmed with a gas chromatography test. Gas chromatography is expensive but accurate. I would talk to an attorney that has experience defending soldiers with this type of case.

  • Under a student visa, arrested for DUI, what do I want to get my charged reduced to to avoid future problems with immigration?

    Gregory’s Answer

    My goal would be to get the case dismissed or reduced to a simple traffic violation. A reduction even to a serious traffic offense like reckless driving could also help. The probation sentence needs to be less than 12 months also. I consult with an immigration attorney when I'm working cases similar to yours.

    Gregory’s Answer

    What you are describing would be considered copyright infringement. Copyright law covers "original works of authorship," including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic and other intellectual works that are "fixed in a tangible medium." The author of a work that fits under this definition is given the exclusive rights to make copies of the work; distribute copies of the work; perform the work publicly (such as for plays, film, dances or music); display the work publicly (such as for artwork, or stills from audiovisual works, or any material used on the Internet or television); and make “derivative works” (including making modifications, adaptations or other new uses of a work, or translating the work to another media). The examples you provide would likely infringe both the right to reproduction and the the right to make derivative works.

    I agree with the previous posts. This is a serious charge. You need to hire an attorney before your hearing. If you cannot afford an attorney you should apply for a public defender.

    It is possible that you will be prohibited from entering Canada because of your pending matter. I suggest contacting a local DWI attorney to discuss your case in general.

    Gregory’s Answer

    Many attorneys will work with you to set up a payment plan. If you can not afford an attorney at all consider contacting legal aid.
