Wisconsin First time dui, nothing ever on myrecord
I was pulled over for speeding. Officer asked if I had been drinking because he could smell it. Long story short, I blew .14 at the station. I can't afford an attorney. What are my chances of license suspension being only 3 or 6 months. And other obligations I will need to fulfill if I plead guilty. Will it be done at the mandatory court appearance. Or will there be more court dates. I am very ashamed because of my poor decision.
Your license will be suspended for six months, you will not have to have an IID (this is an interlock device you are...
Wisconsin - can you plead wet wreckless in wisconsin
Can a plea be entered as wet wreckless in wisconsin if you plead guilty at the mandatory hearing. I thought if you plead guilty it is over no second court appearance.
Most prosecutor's and many judges will not reduce an OWI to a reckless.
Can I recant my admission of operating a vehicle while intoxicated since I really wasn't behind the wheel?
I was with two friends, "A" and "B". We all rode together in B's car to a few bars in town. By the end of the night B had too much to drink, fell forward and gashed his head on the ground. Myself and A decided to drive him back home, and A drove. Once there I decided to call 911 to have a medical professional take a look at B's head. My friend A was worried about a possible OWI so I told him to say I drove because I felt fine, and I knew they were drinking long before I showed up that night. I blew a .09, was taken in to have my blood drawn for my BAC, and am now being charged with a 2nd OWI. My first was 2007 roughly. Both friends A and B were witness to me not driving the vehicle, so I may potentially have two witnesses to back me up if I were to recant my statement to law enforcement.
You can try, but will need to pick your poison: misdemeanor obstructing charges vs. the OWI 2nd, since lying to a law...

I have a il drivers license, and was arrested for owi in WI. Is my license valid to drive in ill, because I was suspended in another state? I blew .096
It depends on whether the IL Secretary of State has taken any action against your license as consequence of the WI...
Do I have any legal ground to appeal or request the court remove the interlock requirement the DMV is imposing?
After conviction for OWI, I was sentenced to 16 mo. license revocation, & 16 mo. w/ignition interlock device, both to begin immediately. The Comment for the ignition interlock sentence on the Judgement of Conviction says 'To commence forthwith.' The judge told me I needed to have it installed as soon as possible. So I did. I had the interlock device on my car for the required 16 months, though I was unable to drive for that time. Now that I'm getting my license back, the DMV tells me that the 16 months don't start until my license is reinstated, and that I need to have an interlock device on my car for another 16 months, though I've already complied w/the sentence as directed by the judge.
Actually, all you have complied with is the IID component of your sentence as you misunderstood it. The law does...
4th dui w/ accident, no injuries (misdemeanor)
Can the judge mandate a portion of my jail sentence where I would not be eligible for house arrest immediately but eligible for Huber to leave for work? And if so, can the sheriff grant my house arrest earlier than what is stipulated by the court? Its my understanding the sheriff determines how, and where, a sentence will be served. Ex. 6 month sentence, first 30 days must be spent in jail before I can go on bracelet
The local Sheriff decides where and how a prisoner will serve a sentence. However, if your judgement of conviction...

Keep trying. Others have felony convictions and do get jobs. It may take more trying. Check with friends and family. Do...
