My fiance got a DWI in 2006 as a minor. He just got another this past Friday night. Will the first affect him now?
My fiance got a dwi in 2006 and a minor. He hasn't been charged with dwi since then and just got picked up in our driveway Friday night. According to the jails website he is being charged with 4th degree dwi. However I have people telling me that is wrong and he should be charged with 3rd degree because of his prior in 2006. I'm just curious what people think Will happen in this case.
If his DWI in 2006 was indeed a DWI, as opposed to an underage drinking and driving, then he will likely be charged...
My husband was arrested for DWI on Aug. 14, 2010, he blew a .16 on the breathlyzer. He was very cooperative and did everything
the way he was supposed to. He had his court date set for Aug. 23, when we showed up for court, they had no records of his citation and the clerk told us that this would be dismissed but the officer could still reissue him a ticket. We just received a letter in the mail that his license has been suspended but have not received anything regarding a new court date. First of all, can we fight this since the charges were dropped? and he had a commercial license and it says he has lost his privelages for a year?? Any help would be great. Thanks!!
I would recommend gathering any documents you received in this matter and meeting with an attorney as soon as possible....
Is there a way to fight a dui?
My father got a dui in August, he was sitting in his van with the keys in the ignition. The vehicle was off and he was not planning on driving. He was on the phone with my brother when the cops walked up on him, he was asking my brother for a ride. Is there a way to fight the dui? Or get a lesser charge?
There are a great many options and possibilities. The state must prove that your father was in physical control of the...
Tailgated by a police officer and it resulting in their probable cause for dwi arrest; unlawful restraint?
Cars are considered deadly weapons when fleeing (been a violent crime for a few years now). So, if an officer induced a driving error by following much to closely for a mile, could an unlawful restraint defense work? You can't speed up (you're going the speed limit), you can't slow down (you'd cause a collision), and you're terrified because if you have to make a defensive maneuver you'll likely also cause a collision. Thoughts?
Is this a hypothetical? It's unclear from your question whether something happened to you or not. Either way, the...
Girlfriend was arrested for a dwi in shakopee mn.what now?
She blew a .10 on the breath test on the 19 of september. The paperwork says that her licence will be revoked on the 26th. Can she have this expunged if this is her first offence? What can we do to have this resolved asap? Will she need to have whisky plates now? The officer on scene would not allow me to drive her car since I was not on the title. The fees and penalties are way above what she makes in a month, can there be a payment plan set up to pay them and will she be able to get a work licence to drive to work at all?
You have raised a lot of questions in your post as is common with DWI cases. Probably the best thing for your GF to do...

I was charged with a DUI. Will my drivers license be revoked if I was not arrested?
I am 18 and was charged with a DUI and a minor. I was not pulled over. My car died in the middle of an intersection and a cop saw and came to help. He had asked if I had anything to drink, I was honest and said yes. I agreed to take a breathalyzer and I blew a .04. On my ticket it does not say what my blood alcohol content was though. Is there a reason why it does not say what my BAC was?
With a .04 test result, chances are that you were charged with Underage Drinking and Driving, not DUI. It's a...
