    Obviously the officer's conduct was inappropriate. If you choose to file an internal affairs complaint, WAIT until after the criminal matter is resolved. You do not want it to be personal while criminal charges are ending against you. Good Luck

    Ms. Glenn is correct, as usual. Be careful what you post in public forums. Yes, you can go to prison for this even if it was consensual. Call a lawyer. Good Luck.

    Lot's of innocent people get arrested. Some even get convicted. Your best bet is to keep your mouth shut. Do not speak to the police at all without an experienced attorney by your side. You are facing very serious charges. Many criminal defense attorneys will charge a relatively low "pre-filing" fee for cases were charges have not been filed to help keep them from being filed. Call an experienced attorney immediately and stop posting statements in public forums. Good Luck.

    It is not the judge you have to worry about. But to answer your question, no. The ignition interlock device is a mandatory part of many DUI sentences. Depending on the facts of the case, the judge must impose the device by law. If the facts of your case make the ignition interlock device mandatory, even if the judge did not impose it, the DMV would not give you a license without it. If the device was not mandatory , and the judge imposed it anyway, a motion to modify probation conditions...

  6. Should I plead guilty or fight it for driving w/ a revoked license while having a hardship license before revoction of my licen.

    Driving on a hardship license does not allow you to go to the grocery store either. You were technically in violation of the terms of the hardship license anyway. Not having knowledge of a suspencion can be a defense. Driving while license suspended without knowledge is not a crime, but a civil infraction. An attorney can help you navigate through this.

    The only thing you can plea is not guilty, otherwise there is no need for a PD as your case will be over. Tell the Judge Not Guilty and ask for the PD to be appointed. Then make sure you follow-up and contact the PD.

    If the trial has ended, it is obvious he can be charged with the offense. If he received 5 years of probation, then he was charged with a felony first offense because of injury or death. It sounds like there was not any evidence, but a jury seemed to think differently if he was convicted. Speak with an attorney who does appeals if you believe there was anissue. Good Luck.

    To answer your question, no the PO will not cuff you right away and take you to jail. A warrant must be issued by the Judge. This can take hours or days. Good Luck.
