Hello I got pulled over last night for not having my headlights on (there are many street lights so I didn't realize it). I had some beers to drink and was asked to do sobriety tests. I feel that I did fine and the officer would not tell me what...
What you are talking about is retrograde extrapolation. A retrograde extrapolation requires knowledge of what you drank and when, what you ate and when, your gender, your weight and at times other things. Even with all of this information it is a dubious practice because of the wide range of inaccuracy.
Perhaps the most important thing about retrograde extrapolation is knowing whether you absorbed all of the alcohol and were in the elimination or post-absorptive phase. If you were still absorbing alcohol there is no way to make even a reasonable guess. Your test was take at a single point in time. There is no way to tell from a single point test whether you were going up or down when tested. Accurate retrograde extrapolation is impossible.
The DA will try to have a state "expert" testify about retrograde extrapolation. Your lawyer should be able to find an expert to challenge this or, perhaps, get the court to exclude it as bad science. Don't try to do this yourself.See question

It sounds like you knowingly pled guilty to the charge. Now you changed your mind. I cannot think of anyone you can sue about this. You did this of your own free will. It is your fault you entered the guilty plea. I suggest you call the public defender who represented you and see if there is a way to withdraw your plea and face the charges. I can tell you that withdrawing a plea of guilty is a hard thing to accomplish, but the longer you wait the less likely it is you can do it. I cannot imagine what the NAACP can do to help you, but you may want to call and hear it from them.See question

My girlfriend is 15 and I am 17 about to be 18. She lives in Canada and I live in the U.S. Recently we were discussing plans for when she turns 16 and what we can maybe do about being able to see each other more often. At that point she will be ab...
The legal consequences in this country are that she could be charged with immigration offenses, jailed and deported. You might face similar legal charges for helping her to violate US law. I cannot tell what the Canadian consequences might be, or if you might face legal action in Canada or the US for encouraging her to run away across international borders. That is a pretty convoluted question that requires far more facts than you can post here.
You need to rethink your plans. This is a very bad idea. If you are serious about continuing with this you should hire immigration lawyers in both the US and Canada.See question
Just wondering what he could possibly be facing? have no money for a lawyer to help his case especially it being federal. Any advice would help thanks.
He is not eligible for probation because trafficking in meth with a quantity of 400 g carries a mandatory minimum of at least ten years in prison. If he has a prior drug felony the minimum is 20 years. Your husband should ask for a court appointed lawyer. The federal defender system has very good lawyers.See question

If your license is suspended in any state, no other state will issue you a license. If you lie on the application they will discover the suspension from the National Driver Registry. If they find that you lied on an application you will probably be charged with a crime.See question

You need to hire a lawyer to review the entire case, not just one fact. That lawyer can tell you if the error is important. We cannot do that without the whole case, and you should not post that information here.See question
