  1. Get an attorney ijbyour area before you do anything. Even if you don't have
    a license you sol he delayed recieving one by a year if you have a mip
    conviction. You have a defense as you did not posess the alcohol. Do not do
    anything until you see an attorney

  2. Yes I agree the DMV can place a delay on your privilege to drive even if you do not have a license. An attorney can help you figure out if you have a search and seizure issue as well as getting a restricted license if it comes down to that.

  3. Two things wrong with your statement. First, it assumes you were in possession. While it can be argued you were, it can also be argued you were not. Second, it assumes that the police had a LAWFUL reason to stop the car. Just because the police stop a car, doesnt mean it was a valid stop. If the stop was invalid, a motion to suppress could be your saving grace. The only way to know would be to speak with a lawyer and review the report together. Don't assume you are guilty if you havent reviewed your how your constitutional rights are affected by this.
