What happens if ur on probation for assault/assault and battery and catch another assault charge while intoxicated
Just looking for a general idea on what could possibly happen.. This man assaulted my 62yr old father and he's already on probation for assault&battery and now we have pressed charges for this new assault charge
Obviously jail. Somehow this was listed under DUI when it clearly isn't.
What are the maximum punishments for a first offense Zero Tolerance - OWI in Michigan?
I was convicted of a Zero Tolerance OWI. What are all of the punishments I could face with this charge? What is the worst thing that can happen? Thank you.
Worst thing is 93 days in jail. However this is unlikely. Obtain a local attorney with whom you are comfortable with....
I'm on non reporting probation for a zero tolerance owi. While on probation I received a MIP. What will happen?
I received the MIP by a school cop in Ottawa County, MI. I did not blow into a breathalyzer or anything so I have no BAC. I'm very remorseful and saddened by the situation and don't want to face jail time because I'm a student. What's the least severe punishment I could face? Thanks for the advice.
The least severe punishment is no time in jail and, likely, probation. There will be some fines/costs if you are...
What are the major differences between an OWI and Impaired Driving regarding Sanilac County, MI?
Hypothetically, if you are charged with an OWI and you end up being convicted of just impaired driving, what are the benefits? Disadvantages? Is impaired driving still considered a misdemeanor? How high will the typical insurance rate skyrocket? Can impaired driving eventually come off your record? What will happen to my license and driving record? How many points will accumulate? Can the initial OWI arrest be expunged? This is all in regards to a first time offense to put this in perspective. Thank you for all responses.
Impaired is a reduction from OWI amd has decreased penalties across the board. 4 instead of 6 points on your driving...
What is the track record of the Sanilac County, MI court system?
I've been charged with an OWI and I cannot handle the anticipation of the arraignment much longer! Does any lawyer know if the District Judge and Prosecuting Attorney are reasonable, lenient, and understanding? Are reduced charges and decent plea bargains common in the courtroom for OWI's? Dismissals? I am perhaps the most remorseful person on the planet right now and I feel I have suffered enough! If this goes on my record, all of my potential will be suppressed. The thousands of dollars I'm paying for tuition will essentially be void, granted, no one will hire me despite a degree. I am also a minority being tried in a predominantly Caucasian area so I am especially nervous. Not to pull the race card but just being honest. Any insight would help! Thank you for your responses!
I can't speak about the Sanilac County personnel specifically, but I can tell you for certain that you really need to...
Are there any Michigan case laws regarding owi / owil when no motor vehicle is present ?
i was wondering if there are any cases that have been either dropped or thrown out by the judge due to the fact that there wasn't sufficient evidence, due to the fact that there was no vehicle present. this involves a snowmobile stuck in a ditch, over a mile away from where defendant was arrested.
There are many cases involving drivers arrested away from the scene. I am currently representing a client who was...
Can I sue a drunk driver that rear-ended me?
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
