Can I answer no to DWI when obtaining car insurance quotes
I pled guilty to a DWI with SIS in December 2014. (The Dwi occurred in Missouri but I now reside in Michigan) Once 2 years passes (December 2016) it will be removed from my record. So two questions: 1. Once I am able to remove SR22, will that lower my rate? 2. Once the charge is dropped completely in December, am I able to answer "no" to this question by car insurance companies: "Have you had any DUI/DWI violations in the last 5 years"? Thank you!!
1. Yes. 2. Interesting question - key word "violations" - Asker, it's not asking for a conviction. It's only asking...

What can I expect from the show cause hearing at the Secretary of State's office?
I received 2 DUI's, one in 05 and one 07. I struggled with drinking while I was in college and right out of college. I understand my faults and did not deal with it the way that I should have. I have an interlock on my car & restricted license. in Jan of 2014 and twice in March of 2014 blew a .03 in my blower and my car was locked.I understand I never should have tried to start my car, but I acted stupidly. I instantly started to see a counselor and started back up at AA 5 times a week. I have not drank since and still continue to see a counselor twice a month and a a five times a week. I was called in last week for a show cause hearing at the Secretary of State's office and was told that I violated my restricted license by drinking those 3 times. See additional info...

I am currently charged with 2 seperate OWIs but in court they have both been referred to as OWI 1st. how is this possible?
I got pulled over and had a warrant from an OWI 4 years ago. I received a 2nd OWI as a result of the traffic stop. In both arraingments I was charged with OWI 1st. I have already plea bargained on the 1st and am awaiting my preliminary exam for the 2nd. Just wondering if I should expect them to hold to the 2 OWI 1st offenses or will they re issue a warrant that reflects the OWI 2nd?
You can only be charged with a second offense if you have been convicted of a previous one when the second one occurred....
