Can you drive in California with a Wisconsin occupational license?
My husband has an occupational license because he received his 1st OWI. He needs to travel to California for work, will his Wisconsin occupational be valid for him to rent a car/drive to appointments? Thank you!
Did you post this to any California attorneys? I'd recommend you contact someone located in CA.
I'm wondering if I should plead no contest or not guilty to my owi?
I was charged with an OWI and it's my first. I'm hoping to get my charge lightened if possible as I do not drink and drive, nor do i hardly drink. I really need some advice!!
You should definitely plead not guilty, not no contest. If you plead no contest the judge will find you guilty. There...

I don't know if I am getting an underage drinking ticket. Gave my info.they checked my alcohol level & told me to go home.
I was over .10 when they checked my alcohol level so I figured I would get a ticket. The other two people with me were told they were getting tickets, but they never said that to me & just told me to go home. I am really confused. Is it normal to send the citation in the mail and not tell me if I am getting ticketed. This was in De Pere, WI. If I do get a citation what are my options. I am afraid to have this on my permanent record for future job prospects.

Can an OWI charge be later changed to OWI-with injury if the victim wasn't showing signs of injury at accident but dose later?
Im being charged with an OWI accident that involved my vehicle parked on the side of the road while I was asking people down the block for directions, the victim swerved to avoid hitting my car as he passed. He went into a ditch, police came did a report and stated he didn't have any injuries. I've been talking to my insurance claim rep and she stated he haven't filed a medical claim yet... It's been a month though. if he dose file one, can I be recharged with owi-with injury before court date or even after trial? In Wisconsin, the injury has to be a substantial injury to be charged.
Yes, your OWI charges could be upgraded to injury-OWI charges if the victim of the accident later reports an injury....
