I got a second underage drinking citation a few days ago, can I take the Aoda program and keep my license?
I got the first citation on 4/10/11 and the second on 5/12/12 so it still counted as a first offense but, for te first one I took one 6 hour class to keep my license from being suspended, can I do that again or not?
That depends on the court and the prosecutor involved. If it is the same jurisdiction as the first "first offense" they...

Get an attorney who deals with OWIs immediately. also get this confession off the internet, if possible.
Is ptsd not considered a defense in a dui?
I had a domestic 7 months ago. For 3 weeks after I had normal ptsd "like symptoms" [i.e. nightmares, anxiety, etc.] But then they went away and I haven't had any trouble since. Well 4 days ago, five hours after a tough session with my therapist I took his advice and socialized with friends for dinner, margaritas and watched the game. I felt fine but I made the foolish mistake of going to my friends apartment (the same apt. complex Where I lived during the domestic) thinking I had overcome my fear. WRONG. Long story short, I was having flashbacks while walking in, I could hear my ex and I fighting in my head and blacked out. Next thing I know, I "snapped into it" on the side of the highway, in my car, reaching for my registration, with a cop asking me if I knew where I was. I had no clue. I contacted my therapist the next day, saw him the day after, he agrees the ptsd got out of hand, the two drinks i had, shouldn't have had me blackout and I now realize this is a serious problem. I wont make the excuse of mental health for my dui, but could it help lessen my sentence if my therapist agrees to speak in court of my condition?
This is not a civil rights question. A diagnosed mental illness is not by itself a defense to any offense, especially a...
Does Wisconsin's implied consent law allow a person arrested for DUI to consult with an attorney before submitting to a test?
Can a person arrested for DUI in Wisconsin call an attorney before being asked to submit to any form of testing to gather information about whether its best to take the test or refuse? And if yes, do officers have to provide phone books to the person arrested for a DUI in Wisconsin?
No, WI does not recognize any such right. All the officer is required to do is read the Informing the Accused form verbatim.
Will my BAC results be admissible in court if the hospital has no record of my being there?
I was charged with an OWI in Wisconsin after failing a sobriety test (I was never pulled over, the cop came up to my car in an empty parking lot calling my husband for a ride home after getting food poisoning during dinner with my sisters and 3 glasses of wine). I was then taken to a local hospital for a blood test as I blew over the legal limit (having just vomited less than 10 minutes prior to being administered the PBT). I put in a records request for my BAC results with the hospital 7 days after the date of my arrest, and received a response in the mail today advising that they could not complete my request as they "have no records of me being a patient". I am a bit worried that they have no records for me, especially having a blood test done. If they have no records for me, would the BAC results be admissible in court?
The hospital would have drawn your blood, but the sample is sent to a state lab for testing. You likely were not a...
When a brother takes the fall for his twin brother for a DUI. Can they both be charged for lying?
My best friends ex boyfriend took the fall for his twin brother for a dui. He got convicted and is doing time. Apparently the arresting officer never did prints or anything when arrested the real brother who committed the dui. My friend has evidence that they did this. If she took her information to the police, could they both face more charges? What would happen?
If the story was believed, yes, they could both face additional charges. What would actually happen is anyone's guess.
