arrested for DUI and courts trying to make me do an alcohol and drug assessment at my own expense.
If you are ordered to do assessment and testing, then you must do it.
OWI third offense(felony) charge in Kent County, is there any possibility of getting this charge reduced to a misdemeanor?
I was charged with OWI third, had two prior convictions, one as a minor. I'm hoping not to lose my ability to possess a firearm, any chance of getting the charges reduced in this county?
What you are trying to do is usually very difficult, but not impossible. There are MANY very good OWI Grand Rapids-...
Just out of curiosity, since I have never been in the system before with a clean record, I am just curious what happens on the day of my pre sentencing? What happens on that day? Also what does it mean by Alcohol Assessment? Will I have to drop on that day? Will I have to drop in general? Judge never said anything about probation when I plead guilty to an impaired driving.
The Alcohol Assessment is essentially a guide for the judge to understand what your alcohol history is, meaning...
I have exhausted all options short of applying for a pardon to alter a conviction of OWI third. I see that a collateral attack on a prior conviction in which I was not informed of the importance of retaining counsel at the age of 17 after receiving my first OWI may be an option. Is this possible and is anyone interested, looking to retain competent counsel. I need help, unfortunately I made mistakes when I was 17, 19, and 24, have maintained sobriety, graduated from college with multiple degrees and still am lagged by this conviction in every way. If attending law school was an option, I would do this as my background as a Historian and grades are good enough too, but the reality, just like with so many other positions is that I am barred sometimes by law and de facto policies.
The most often used line in law is "ignorance of the law is not a defense". Unfortunately, that is a true statement of...
Can a motion for relief from judgment be used to alter a prior conviction of OWI, roughly 4 years ago?
I received an OWI in Kent County, unfortunately it was my third, resulting in a felony conviction. I feel that something fundamentally wrong went on during the conviction process. The lawyer I hired failed to inform me of my constitutional rights. Is filing this motion a possibility?
Your time period for filing such an appeal would have expired long ago. Unless there was evidence that the officer or...
So i refused a pbt, i knew i was ok, but i do not agree with the pbt and how it is administered, I had eaten dinner and consumed four micro beers during that time, with about 2 hours between last drink and the blood test. I am an active female with an extremely high metabolism . I know that i was ok, and had taken a hand held breathalyzer before leaving and it registered .06. The police still arrested me and I spent almost a week in jail. Why would they keep me for so long, because I refused the pbt?
There are a lot of issues with this question. I am a little confused because you stated you refused the PBT but then...
Got pulled over and got blood work done because they thought I was under the influence, I am a medical patient so there will be traces of marijuana in my system and I want to see the results but they are trying to deny me that right cause the case is pending. Are they allowed to do that?
Absolutely not. You have a right to review the evidence the prosecutor intends to use against you if the case proceeds...
