Can I get my sentence reduced for an OWI if the arresting officer illegally signed away my rights?
I was recently arrested and charged with an OWI. BAC .17 at the time of the test. However, when I was detained, the arresting officer signed his initials in place of mine on the back of the temporary permit issued. The statements in which I should have signed my initials would have confirmed I was fully aware of my rights to refuse the test, etc. This can't be legal.

What happens after blowing positive on a probation breathalyzer?
I've been on probation for the last two months and went in today for my random alcohol testing. I blew numbers and i'm wondering what the next step is.

Pulled over for Speeding, did not stop immediately, charged with Flee and Elude and Dui, Probable Cause question?
I was stopped for speeding, followed for too long (according to the prosecutor) before i pulled over and charged with Flee and Elude and Dui. The officer did not write me a ticket for speeding. The officer also did not show up for court, and the Flee and Elude was dismissed with prejudice.

If not, do i have standing to file a Motion to dismiss the dui against me Thanks!
In order for a stop be lawful, an officer must have an objective basis for stopping the vehicle under the Whren...
