If my age is written incorrectly on a ticket that is age related is the ticket still valid?
I was caught with an underage drinking by police and plead guilty to the crime. But after looking at my case online my date of birth was listed as 3-1984 when my birthday is 3-1994. The date of birth they put would make me over the age of 21. So could I be charged with the underage.
You have already been charged, and found guilty based upon your own admission of guilt in court. A data entry error on...

Can my daughter be issued an underage drinking ticket because of a pic on facebook and no breath test taken?
ticket was mailed two months later, Was asked about it by principle at high school with no counsel present. Was given a choice to admit to it and get suspended for 1 cross country meet, or deny it and get suspended for 6 meets. ticket was mailed 2 months later
This sounds highly suspect, and the actions of the school administrators here are terrible. On the other hand,...
I'm 16 & was charged with underage drinking while at home in my yard while my parents were home & want to fight it. Any advise?
I want to fight the fine in court because I don't think it's right since WI law says you can drink under 18 at home with a parent. I had friends over who brought their own beer given to them by their own parents. My parents were home but didn't know we had beer outside so when the police showed up we all received fines for underage drinking. My parents sometimes allow me to drink but never while around my friends or when out only at home. Can I still get a fine for this even though my parents didn't supply the beer?
The applicable statute is Wis. Stat. s. 125.07(4)(b).

I had a domestic 7 months ago. For 3 weeks after I had normal ptsd "like symptoms" [i.e. nightmares, anxiety, etc.] But then they went away and I haven't had any trouble since. Well 4 days ago, five hours after a tough session with my therapist I took his advice and socialized with friends for dinner, margaritas and watched the game. I felt fine but I made the foolish mistake of going to my friends apartment (the same apt. complex Where I lived during the domestic) thinking I had overcome my fear. WRONG. Long story short, I was having flashbacks while walking in, I could hear my ex and I fighting in my head and blacked out. Next thing I know, I "snapped into it" on the side of the highway, in my car, reaching for my registration, with a cop asking me if I knew where I was. I had no clue. I contacted my therapist the next day, saw him the day after, he agrees the ptsd got out of hand, the two drinks i had, shouldn't have had me blackout and I now realize this is a serious problem. I wont make the excuse of mental health for my dui, but could it help lessen my sentence if my therapist agrees to speak in court of my condition?
This is not a civil rights question. A diagnosed mental illness is not by itself a defense to any offense, especially a...
a dui case, how far is considered too far for the police to take me from my vehicle to their station to do field sobriety tests
even though i already blew all zeros on every breathlizer they gave me at the scene..''at least three'',, i clearly wasnt drinking,, but went in the ditch on a unfamiliar snow covered back road, during a heavy snowstorm,, valid licence, i admitted to being tired and unfamiliar with the area ,, but certainly wasnt drinking,, now i do have 5 prior owi convictions,, all 5 were driving with prohibited bac,, ''alchohol'' and i went to prison did my time and never ever got behind the wheel again after drinking never will,, 2003 was when i got my last one, almost 14 years ago,, this case im dealing with now is absurd,, the cop said to me on the way to the station '' your not under arrest,, we just need to get you somewhere warmer and brighter to perform the field sobriety tests'',,i already passed three breathlyzers by this time, i totally already felt that i was under arrest,,he took me about five miles from the scene in the back of his squad car, and mentioned ''lee your a nice enough guy, but my aunt was killed by a drunk driverjust like yourself'', theres video evidence of this,,after field testing, they took me to the hospital blood tests, and jail, case was dismissed then re opened
The officer needs "reasonable articulable suspicion" that you have committed a crime to administer field sobriety tests....
