When you go to court all you've gotta say is " I wasn't drunk, I was just exercising my 5 th" and that's it.... no lawyer required?
your sadly mistaken, you'd be run all over because it'd be so easy for the courts to take advantage of your lack of knowledge.you'd be a cute little seal in a pool or nasty hungry sharks.
Lawyers are there because they know what the average Joe does not.
I retain a lawyer for everything even speeding tickets. Just for the fact that they are aware of what I don't. And yes fount4402. Its ok to not know everything.
while i agree that its always best to keep your mouth shut. That's not gonna get shht dismissed in court, it will just make it easier for your lawyer!
Unfortunately its usually guilty until proven innocent. Not the other way around.
Yes you may be in the Federal system, but you're no 1811. Just keep the lines at the airport streaming through and be careful with the pat downs on the elderly.
Getting back to the original post, SMARTY is correct, based on the scenario given, it will not stand up in court. The real issue is, who is the one who is going to dish out the $$$$ to fight it, then sue, and once the PD and County lose a civil case, you won't have officers being such pricks. That process will take several years, so unfortunately there are always pricks in EVERY profession.
On a good note, "Doc" said today his lawyer is pretty sure the DA is gonna drop the BUI charge. I didn't ask him if they were pleading it down to something else or not. I kind of assumed so.
Yup, your right. Small boat, big motor. Good combo. You never got back to me before .... hows your rotted out turd treating you? I still love that your wise enough to easily navigate the legal system. Yet...so damm retarted and naive as to go buy a 20 year old boat sight unseen. They also tell you its one of the fastest on the water too?? 350 mpi and an alpha?? Or a clapped out smoky big block and beat down trs?
I fukkin pray that you someday get a dui and do not furnish a lawyer.
In this example would you still be an advocate of self-representation? Or would you lawyer-up? There is not a right or wrong answer, just a preference, and a different end result for the defendant sometimes when the defendant(s) go it alone.
