Q. Would playing the mobile game Pokemon Go in an area considered public (parks, side walks, public buildings)be loitering
A: No.
Q. If you get in an auto accident causing property damage and your BAC is .07, can you be convicted of DWI?
A: Yes, it is possible. The prosecution will try to prove using retrograde extrapolation that you were over .08 at the time of the accident or that for you .07 is enough alcohol in your bloodstream to be intoxicated. I would suggest hiring a lawyer who can give your case the attention to detail it deserves so you can beat that charge.
