What is the statute in Wisconsin that prohibits DWI checkpoints?
I seem to find new bills trying to be passed to make DWI checkpoints legal, but I cannot find the Statute number that prohibits a police department from conducting DWI checkpoints. Everything I have looked up just says that there is a statute but there is not a reference number to go along with this statement. is this statement true?
Not sure about a statute, but there are no OWI check roadblocks in the state. Having moved here from another state...
Is there a statue of limitations of my OWI (3) case?
I was arrested for OWI (3) back in October 2011. After several pretrials and motion hearings the jury date was scheduled for this coming July 2014. This date was set several months ago but now the DA is saying the officer is unavailable for that date (the officer works in a different state now), so the DA is going to dismiss the case and then re-file the case. I know double jeopardy probably does not affect this case but is there a statue of limitations on this, is there anything I can do?
The statute of limitations for misdemeanors is three years. As long as the case is filed before October, 2014, the...

I got a DUI in FL in 2008. I was unable to make the court date due to divorce and relocation. Do I need a lawyer?
I currently live in WI and I need to get this situation behind me. The case is still open as far as I know. I'm not sure what course of action to take. I can't go to FL because I was recently diagnosed with cancer and all of my care takes place here not to mention I would lose my job. I don't know if the case could be transferred here or how that works. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you for your time.
It would be best to contact a criminal defense attorney in Florida in the jurisdiction where the DUI occurred to advise...
