If I was sentenced to report to jail before I could complete my IDIP program will I have to serve the full sentence at that time
Completion of the IDIP program means a reduced sentence (jail time, fines, revocation). Will I have to sit the full sentence since I'm having to report before I can complete the program even though I agreed to the conviction with reduced sentencing. DUI
It is not clear exactly where your case stands at this point but assuming it is criminal in nature (since you mentioned...
I asked about withdrawing my plea on a previous post, but there is also a Question I have about the statute of limitations. I was arrested on 3/04/06 for my owi (the same night as my Brother), but failed to return to court in the fall of 2006. A warrant was issued in 2006 and I was just picked up on it on 8/31/10. I have lived in the state in the past 4 1/2 years and have not left the state to avoid this warrant, and have been arrested in two different counties (neither county honoring this warrant). I can verify my residence and employment for this period of time, through my taxes and residential lease agreements. I need to know how to bring this issue up in court becase the D.A. is trying to sentence me next week, and I haven't even met my public defender yet. Any help? Thanks!
If the charge was already filed, it's likely you will have to defend it. If you are about to be sentenced and have...
Can I withdraw my guilty/no-contest plea at sentencing hearing in Wisconsin, since I did it pro-se and feel I've made a mistake?
I called my brother for a ride from a tavern because I was intoxicated and asked him to drive. My brother stayed at the tavern drinking and when we left, he was pulled over for a owi. Upon his arrest, at least 3-4 police officers left me with the vehicle, and even started it to keep me warm (it was 13 degrees out), then left the scene without giving me a ride to somewhere safe. I waited for approx. 40 minutes and couldn't get ahold of anyone for a ride, the van running out of gas, I tried to drive to my sisters house and got stopped and arrested for an owi also. the police knew I was intoxicated and had 2 priors and I feel they didn't do their job to protect me and the public. Had they not put the keys in the van, started it, and left me there, I wouldn't have had control of it. HELP!!
You should talk to a lawyer in your area about your defense. It may be possible to withdraw your uncounseled plea....
