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...
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...
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...
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...
My license is suspended until March 2015 for a DUI and am looking to move to California. My suspended license is restricted so that I can drive to work. I understand that Michigan is not a member of the DCL but I am aware of the NDR. Will I have to wait until my suspension is over before I can apply for a license in CA? Basically, I'm wondering if I can move to CA before my suspension is cleared. On the other hand, if I waited until my suspension cleared would I be able to move to CA then? Will an application to get a new license be denied if I have a past DUI even when the suspension ends? Thank you!
If you plan on leaving after conviction but before you complete probation you will need the court's permission & you...
If you are arrested for driving high as a minor and then recieve a dui as an adult is the dui a second offense or is it seperate
A friend was caught driving high as a senior in high school and was arrested. He is now 23 and got arrested for driving with a BAC of .13 . Are these considered seperate offenses or are the consequences worse fot the dui because of the previous arrest? What kind of consequences could he be looking at in this case?
The consequences are definitely worse and your friend is in serious trouble. The maximum possible sentence for a second...
