What will most likely happen after a DUI while on probation for non DUI misdemeanor
Got into a accident that was not my fault no one hurt but blew 1.7. I have the arraignment tomorrow which I plan to plead not guilty and get a lawyer (should I go with a appointed?) I have been on probation for over a year for theft over 1000. What is most likely going to happen?
The high BAC drunk driving will treat you as though the first offense does not exist except for purposes of creating a...
What to do? My mom convicted of DUI after accident on ice; doesn't understand she's been convicted. Court-appointed lawyer
Last winter, we were hit with an ice storm here in Michigan. My mom was on her way home from the grocery store beginning of the storm (3pm), hit a patch of ice and slid off the road and into a very small tree, at a low speed. There was no damage to anything except her OLD car, which the insurance company totaled (it was too old). However, the police decided to arrest her because he asked her if she had anything to drink. Of course she hadn't, but she had taken a Norco, as prescribed by her doctor. My mother has a previously broken back, so shopping is hard for her. Drug test came back - she had nanograms of Norco in her system, along with nanograms of Xanax from the previous night, which she also has a prescription for. My dad has been taking her to court, but now they are talking to me about probation! I asked if she was convicted of a DUI and both say "I don't know what happened". Neither seem to know what the judge did!!! Is this normal to get a DUI for small traces of Norco and Xanax in your blood, even with a script? And is it malpractice by the court-appointed attorney? They don't know what's going on! No previous criminal history. Thank you!
There is nowhere near enough information in your question to give you a complete response. You first need to know if...
How can I get my license plate back and how much will it cost?
A friend drove my car and got a DUI. I had admitted in the police report that I knew he was drinking as I was with him, but he was in better shape to drive. He was sentenced to jail today and I was told the only way to get my plate back is to not have knowledge that he was drinking. I had gotten a notorized affidavit that I did not know about his previous record which I did not, but that is sufficient to get my plate back. I do not want to lie under oath. I have never been in trouble and simply want my plate back and I don't know what to do. Please help.....
You should have a temporary plate on the car now. When the case for your friend is over, and there is no forfeiture,...
Will I lose my license in Michigan. Failed interlock test over a year ago but no violation.
So I have had an interlock for over a year and a half now. Two months after having it, I had went for cigarettes. The store is literally half a mile away. Started truck with interlock just fine. Drive to the store went in and handled my business. When i came out I blew into device as usual and it failed. Waited the timer out roughly a minute if I remember correct. And it started fine. Thinking it was a glitch I drove home and that was the end of it. I got a anual report today saying that when that happened I blew a .04. But the test literally five minutes before was fine and test a minute after was fine. The time I have had this unit I havnt had any other positive tests, zero tickets/or accidents. I have been violated twice for a dead battery and broken ground wire. Both of witch I wrote sec of state and never herd another thing about it. I'm her concerned about this as my job depends on me being able to drive to job sites,sometimes over a hundred miles away. Is their anything I can do at this point. I keep hearing that I should be fine being it was over a year ago without any other failed tests, but I have had the book thrown at me many times with this situation.
Your failed test in this instance you describe was, in fact a glitch. The fact that you tested negative both before,...

Should I sue for an unnecessary DUI arrest?
Recently I was pulled over in a small town in Michigan. The officer alleged that I was "all over the road" and that was his reason for stopping me. After questioning me I was ordered out the car, given a field sobriety test (which the officer didn't think i did so well on) and then arrested for OWI. My PBT was 0.00, which led the officer to suspect I was on drugs instead. Once booked, I agreed to take a drug test and while the results are pending, they will be negative as I do not do drugs. I was simply in an unfamiliar area and my driving may have momentarily reflected that which resulted in me being given a ticket for "driving left of center" in addition to the arrest. I was also unnecessarily held for 12 hours due to the belief I was on drugs. While I am sure all charges will be dropped once my blood tests results come back, I am sure that I was profiled for being a minority in a upscale neighborhood. My driving and criminal record is (or was) clean, I have had no prior run-ins with the law. I would like to sue for wages lost that day and impound fees, but I really believe the situation was mishandled and I do not want to settle for an "oops". What should I do?
they might be liable to you for a false arrest. Your biggest issue isn't liability but if damages are sufficient to...
Who has my results and where do I obtain them?
Hello. 2 part question here. Recently I had a blood drug test done (in lieu of being arrested) and it has been about 6 weeks since it was sent In to the michigan state police crime lab. My question is how do I get the results of the test? I know I am entitled to anything that can be discovery against me, but do I call the court? Do I call the police station? No one ever told me who exactly these results would be going back to. So far, my police report and DRE report were all able to be obtained from the police station. Second part, once a case and charges have been dismissed (not lessened) but dismissed, does the persons record automatically clear, or is that something I will have to fight for in court. Record clearing as in mugshot gone, fingerprints gone, no history of the arrest, etc. This is one of my biggest concerns, and before asked, yes I am sure these charges will be dropped. But I am more interested in the cleanliness of my record. Will this be something to ask the judge for?
You need to FOIA the results. Most likely they aren't ready yet, but not only do you have a right to the exam, you...
