My neighbor throw large & heavy objects/rubbish into my backyard, talks & police didn't help. It was their son (mentally-challenged?) who needs more & closer supervision, his parents seemed NOT doing enough to prevent these "incidents" to happen. They damaged our plants, beddings...besides the... Read more »
In addition to the previous good answers, you should hire someone whom you feel has the experience and ability to correctly defend you. Not all DUI defense lawyers know how to defend a drug DUI correctly.

The facts you shared do raise some important legal issues and rights. And without knowing more, I cannot answer it completely. A CPS (and some counties have had this agency re-named) worker will have to be involved and be open to your information. If she or he sees it your way then that is the...Read more »
More information is needed. If you would like to consider hiring a private criminal defense attorney -- which always has its benefits because public defenders (if you get one) are overworked and not able to give clients the kind of attention a private attorney can -- then please go ahead and make...Read more »

The facts you shared do raise some important legal issues and rights. The short answer is no, they need probable cause.
