Cited for DUI in California, but I hold a valid Wisconsin drivers license. I have yet to be convicted through Courts or DMV.
Cited for DUI in California, but I hold a valid Wisconsin drivers license. I have yet to be convicted through Courts or DMV. I am wondering what the ramifications on my WI drivers license will be if convicted. I understand that California is a part of the interstate drivers compact, but Wisconsin is not. How and when does Wisconsin find out about a conviction? Also what will I be facing through the WI DMV. I have called the WI DMV and I know that IID's are a court order not a DMV order so I am not concerned about that.

I am wondering what effect the DIV suspension will have on my WI drivers license even if there is no DUI conviction with the courts . When I talked to the lady at the WI DIV she said it shouldn't matter if there is no court conviction , but I am just making sure . Any input is helpful , please let me know if you have any other questions . DUI charged , pending court date .

I refused a blood test at hospital for suspected DUI, but they sedated me and still took one. Can they still use this in court?
I was in a car accident and they assumed i was drunk. the police took me to the hospital where i thought i was just going to get my lip stitched up. i told the doctors i do not want any IV's or needles stuck in me besides the one for the stitches. I am against them. The officer asked if he could do a blood test. i said no. The doctors restrained me down and put a drug in my arm that knocked me out. even though i made it clear i did not want to be sedated, or have anything stuck in my arms. they stitched my lip and i had three needles in my arm when i had awaken. At the jail, I did take a breathalyzer. I later come to find out they took a blood test and will be using it against me in court. Is this legal? How could they still do what they did after my requests at the hospital?
Good questions from someone who assumes we are not living in a police state! Wisconsin law is that they can do this....

The car was 20 feet from the road next to a farmer's field, the car was not running...is there a statute about being off the legal roadway?
Yes it happens. See for instance your brother's case. The state has to prove it. They probably have circumstantial...
