    Yes.... Anyone can be denied employment for a variety of reasons including having been arrested..... If you successfully completed your first offender probation you may want to hire an attorney to seek expungement of those records; assuming you qualify for expungement. Feel free to contact my office should you need further assistance.

    Phillip’s Answer

    You are always best advised to recite the facts of your matter precisely and exact to each attorney you choose to speak with - this way you will receive guidance based upon consistent recitation of facts and will find yourself in a better position to choose the attorney for your case. As Richard indicated, a license suspension for a refusal is a 12 month hard suspension if you lose an administrative license hearing.

    Phillip’s Answer

    If you want to defend yourself then you will need to do what an attorney would do - which is investigate the facts, interview the witnesses, research the law, draft & serve & file motions to suppress evidence if needed, draft & file & serve a motion to exclude statements if needed, appear in court when scheduled, argue your motions, confer with the prosecuting attorney and basically do what any lawyer would do who spent three years going to law school and who has spent time learning as well as training on how to handle DUI cases with a diabetic client..... If you've never done this before you may want to get started quickly as you have a steep learning curve to conquer before your trial..... Good luck

    was there any marijuana recovers by the police? If so, has it been tests by the crime lab? In my opinion, it would be very challenging for the State to prosecute you for marijuana that was not seized not tested. Having said that, if you are fearful your friend is going to rat you out then you may want to clean your act up and lead a good, clean an wholesome life so that you don't have to worry about being busted....
