I agree with my colleagues. You need to speak with an attorney about your case before making any decisions. If you believe you or your child are in physical danger contact the police or contact Safe Shelter of Savannah at (912) 629-8888.

If a pipe is all they found, you may be charged with possession of a drug related object. Either way, whenever anyone is charged with a criminal offense it is important to have an attorney represent you. An experienced criminal defense attorney can make sure that the police did everything they had to do for the search to be valid.

If you cannot afford to hire private counsel, you need to contact your local public defender's office.
I agree with my colleagues. Because you "refused" you have 10 days to file an appeal to your administrative suspension. If you refuse the state test after the officer reading the implied consent warnings, your license will be suspended after 30 days unless you file this appeal. You need to speak with a DUI attorney soon.
