I'm on probation and I'm not to drink but I failed
Alcohol itself does not stay in the urine for very long. Your body metabolizes alcohol at the rate of about .015% per hour on average. If you were as high as a .15% your urine should be clear of alcohol after the first urination after ten hours have passed. If you are being tested on probation they are probably not testing for alcohol but instead on of the metabolites of alcohol - probably EtG. That says in your body for up to 96 hours after drinkingSee question

You need to hire a lawyer familiar with computer crime to answer this question. Too much additional information is needed. I expect significant research will also be required.See question

You need to consult a lawyer in the state where you are suspended. Once you clear that suspension you should be able to get your license back, assuming you have no other suspensions.See question

I'm trying to own a business, and buy a home.
Having a federal felony does not prohibit you from owning a business or buying a home. If you are talking about firearms rights the answer is never. There is no federal expungement. If you are talking about other civil rights such as voting talk to a lawyer in your area about this.See question

What he faces will depend on what they charge him with. We don't really know that yet. If he is charged under 18 USC 922 he is looking at up to ten years in prison. If he is charged with having a firearm during a drug offense he under 18 USC 924(c) he is looking at a minimum of 5 years unless this is his second offense in which case the minimum is 25 years. If they are also charging him with the drug crime that will likely be a separate charge with an additional sentence. Again, much depends on his record so these numbers could be low. He should get a lawyer immediately.See question

If a person is saying that your son sexually assaulted him or her, it is not hearsay and it is evidence that can be used to convict him. Many people are convicted of sexual assault without scientific proof. I assume your son has a lawyer. If not, get one immediately. Suing the state will be very difficult as prosecutors have broad immunity from suit for prosecutorial decisions. For now concentrate on helping your son. Talk to his lawyer. If the lawyer thinks there is a chance he can be convicted, listen to the lawyer. Do not assume that your son cannot be convicted without the type of scientific evidence you see on TV.See question
A person was taken into custody and is now refusing to go to court to be arraigned. What are the legalities of refusing to go to court?
The person will likely be forcibly brought to court. If the person refuses to enter a plea at arraignment the judge will most likely enter a not guilty plea in the record and schedule further proceedings. One exception to this is if the judge or attorneys think the person might have mental illness problems or otherwise be incompetent, the person might be sent for a psychological evaluation before further proceedings. Ultimately, the case will go forward, with or without the person's cooperation, unless the person is found to be incompetent to stand trial.See question

You need to do two things. First, stop admitting to crimes on the internet. These statements can be used against you. Second, hire a lawyer. A conviction for this offense will have serious consequences including paying back and denial of future federal student financial aid.See question
