Husband arrested for DUI - now what?
My husband was arrested in our driveway for DUI - he was sitting in the driver's seat with the vehicle running. He took a breathalyzer test onsite and blew .163. He was taken to jail and released to me a few hours later with no paperwork. They did not take his license, nor have we received any paperwork for what he will be charged with. What is our next step? Do we just wait for paperwork to arrive in the mail? I assume he is safe to drive until then? This happened on Saturday night, it is now Wednesday.
I would not wait for anything. The fact that he was taken to the jail likely means the process will be beginning for...
What should a first time offender expect in a DWI charge?
Is the punishment more severe for those who have crashed their vehicle (no other cars involved) versus those who are simply pulled over? Can a judge says that .15 is close enough to twice the legal limit and treat it as such? What can a person with a clean driving record expect to have happen?
A crash case could potentially be handled differently by the prosecutor and judge. There may be several legal issues...
Will I be charged with a DWI?
My car's steering went out while I was driving and I was able to maneuver it to the side of the road. I walked to the nearest restaurant/bar to call a friend to be picked up. I had a couple beers while waiting. My friend arrived and drove me home. I again had a couple of beers. Then the police showed up at my residence to inform me of towing my car. They gave me a breathalyzer test, which I failed and gave me a ride to the police station. I was given paperwork for revocation of my license. This happened on 4th of April and I still have not been charged. Will I be charged and how long does that process take? I have called Sherburne County but keep on being told I have not been charged yet. I need my case to be heard. I am unemployed and now I cannot even look for a job!
You have a defense of post driving consumption. Unfortunately, you only had 30 days to challenge the revocation of your...
My driver's license was revoked for failing to pass a breathalyzer test in my driveway.
I was not jailed or to date (2 months later) been charged with a DWI. The papers I received just state I must pay a $690 fine and re-take my drivers test. When I called the DMV they said my license was revoked for 2 years. How can this be?
I would call a lawyer today for a free consultation there is much to discuss
I received a 3rd degree dwi with a bac of .303, it is my second one. what is the possibility of a lesser charge?
i was recently pulled over with a bac of .303 and charged with 3rd degree dwi. it is my second one in 10 years. i am curious, with an experienced lawyer what could my charge possibly be reduced to?
With a blood alcohol level that high, more that three times the legal limit, and a second offense, chances of the...
I am being charged with statue 152.025.(a)(1). With reference to:152.025.1(a). How is this a felony?
I sold 28 grams to a CI and after not wanting to be a CI in lieu of my charges being dismissed they charged me with this. In MN statue it states it's just a misdemeanor. Just wondering how they got a felony charge?
Yes. It's the sale that makes it a felony.
Can I serve STS in Stearns County on a mandatory minimum DWI sentence?
I stupidly managed to get myself a third DWI while still on probation for the first. Due to mandatory minimums I was offered 90 days 30 of which in jail and 60 on home monitoring, also an additional 30 days house arrest for probation violation. I served 4 days initially, so then I would serve 16 in custody. My question is could Stearns County potentially allow me to either: a) Serve STS to further reduce my jail time even though it's not that long of a sentence, or b) Serve weekends to break it down to smaller staggered durations? Thank You In Advance!!
Sometimes this can be negotiated out. If this is a real make or break issue for you, you should invest in a premier...
