Can you be charged with DWI with a minor child in the car 4 years after the fact?
A CPS investigation was started based on a story my daughter wrote in her journal about her father driving drunk with her in the car 4 years ago. No one knows for sure if he was indeed drunk. There was no accident, no investigation. She called me (her mother) to come and get her and I did. Now, 4 years later this CPS investigator is certain that she is going to seek charges against my ex for drunk driving. This CPS investigation has gotten out of control and is threatening my exes current sobriety, his work and all the work he has put into maintaining sobriety for over 2 years. What can we do?
The chances of the prosecutor bring charges with no blood or breath test is slim. If charges are brought. Hire a good...
My Mother was visiting South Lyon MI and got pulled over for her tail light being out. A road side test was conducted and she failed her breathlyzer with .19 BAC. Cop told her that he didn't want to deal with her passenger (was passed out and vomited) so he was not going to arrest her but car was impounded. He gave her a ticket for Tail lights being out and improper turn. Will she still get charged for a dui if not arrested?
If there was no arrest and no evidentiary chemical test was given, it sounds like she may have dodge a huge missile....
I was in an auto accident Sunday night. A super drunk driver hit me from behind very hard. Lots of damage to my vehicle. He was arrested on the spot and taken to jail. The police said it was not his first offense etc etc. They had me checked out in the ambulance but did not take me to the hospital. I am feeling neck, back, leg, and muscle pain. I went to a therapy doctor Monday who did x-rays and suggested treatment to correct my issues which will take a few months. I live in Michigan which is no fault state. I have full coverage and the person who hit me also has car insurance. Allstate has been handling my claim. I want to know if I can sue the driver who hit me? I am in some pain but more importantly I am not able to work my weekend job because it requires heavy lifting which I won't be able to do for the next few months

Can I sue the driver for the remaining costs to repair my truck since the driver was drunk?
I was at a stop sign when a drunk driver rear-ended me going 45 mph. He got arrested. The following day i went to my insurance and they said I only get $1000 back cause I have plpd. That's not gonna cover half of the damages. Can I sue the driver for the remaining damages since he was drunk? I've never been in a accident so I don't know what to do.
You can bring what is called a mini-tort action against the other driver in small claims court without an attorney, in...
Got an OWI, police had me do 3 breathalyzer tests all back to back, one after another. Aren't they supposed to wait 15 min?
At the station, the police had me take 3 breath tests right after another. Aren't they legally supposed to wait 15 mins in between each? If I got video evidence, can't this help me in court, or even dismiss the case?
Need more details and to review the video. Normally the multiple tests are for the prosecutors benefit, not yours....
When I got my OWI I got pulled over for speeding when I really was legally PASSING a car, can I use this in court?
I got arrested for an OWI a week ago. I'm thinking of ways to beat the charge and I remember that when I got pulled over, I was driving from the right lane to the left on a 2 lane road and was passing the car in front of me. I got pulled over for speeding, going 70 in a 55. It IS legal to exceed 10mph WHEN passing a car. Is this something that I could use to defend myself in court? And even get the case dropped? Or at least work with a little bit? Please help
You need to engage an attorney and provide all of the facts to determine if this, or anything is a viable defense, or...
