First DUI. Will i get probation?
This is my first ever DUI. Im just curious if i should expect to get probation. I was arrested and taken in but never actually put in jail they just asked me a bunch of questions and let me leave with a licensed sober driver no bail and i did not have to wait to be seen by a judge. Im just curious if most DUI cases get probation or not?
Yes. If you plead guilty it's very likely that you'll be placed on probation. Don't be too quick to plead guilty though....
Can a DUI charge be fought if information was withheld?
I got my first DUI. The officer had me do all the sobriety tests than gave me a breathalyzer, when i asked what i blew he said he is not aloud to tell me. Ive not had to do very much with the law so i have no idea if there is anything i can do about that.
Yes, this case can, and should be, fought. There are several ways to attack a DWI charge and an experienced attorney...
Can a DUI be lowered to a minor while driving and would that be a lesser charge?
On saturday i got my first DUI i am 19 years old and i am just wondering if it ever happens that, that gets reduced to like a minor while driving, or if that would even be better to have it reduced to that or if thats even a reduction, thanks.
Since you obviously tested over the legal limit of 0.08 there are two issues in play - the DWI charge and the...
I am wondering if the fail I recorded on my Lifesafer Interlock device will be reported to my probation officer.
The interlock is not part of my probation and I failed 2 tests in a period of 5 to 10 minutes. I then did not try and test again that day. I guess I am wondering if the DVS will report it to probation. I have heard they don't but not sure. I know that Lifesafer will notify the MN DVS and it will be recorded as a fail.
You have the right idea. Chances are DPS won't report the violation to the local probation office. You'll have to deal...
Help finding a lawyer
Hey, so i am in need of a lawyer to help me fight a DUI i realize there is a "find a lawyer" button on this site but i feel that this is a better way to go about it instead of making a bunch of calls saying the same exact thing. So over the weekend i got my first (hopefully last) DUI i was with 3 other people when the cop stopped we were in the ditch at the point we had given up trying to get ourselves out i was in the driver seat so it was obvious i was the driver i admitted to having 2 or three beers the officer put me theough a sobriety test and gave me a breathalyzer which he told me he was not aloud to tell me the results of ibwas arrested and taken to the police station where i gave a urine sample and was booked in and than released. I am 19.
Unfortunately there is no easy way to handle this situation. You are going to have to speak with an experienced DWI...
Is there a way to fight a dui?
My father got a dui in August, he was sitting in his van with the keys in the ignition. The vehicle was off and he was not planning on driving. He was on the phone with my brother when the cops walked up on him, he was asking my brother for a ride. Is there a way to fight the dui? Or get a lesser charge?
There are a great many options and possibilities. The state must prove that your father was in physical control of the...
Tailgated by a police officer and it resulting in their probable cause for dwi arrest; unlawful restraint?
Cars are considered deadly weapons when fleeing (been a violent crime for a few years now). So, if an officer induced a driving error by following much to closely for a mile, could an unlawful restraint defense work? You can't speed up (you're going the speed limit), you can't slow down (you'd cause a collision), and you're terrified because if you have to make a defensive maneuver you'll likely also cause a collision. Thoughts?
Is this a hypothetical? It's unclear from your question whether something happened to you or not. Either way, the...
