Can I be charged with a owi three weeks after my accident, even w/o a police report?
I had an accident and woke up in ICU on 9/14 was discharged and sent home, called the state police and asked what happened, and they had no record of me, but gave me a complaint number and a voicemail. Three days later I was arrested at midnight and sat in jail until arraignment the next afternoon. My jail release papers say I was arrested 9/14, but I actually wasn't arrested until 10/3... I saw my car in impound and its clear I was hit, but there is no investigation, when I asked the judge what my bac was he said it just said "above legal limit" no number...
Yes you can be charged because obviously you were. The question is can you be convicted. This will the prosecutor's Job...
If I have a suspended license for a DUI in Arizona, could I get a license in Michigan?
I recently moved to Michigan from Arizona. I currently have a suspended license for a DUI in Arizona, and I was wondering if I could get a license in Michigan? It is my first DUI and Arizona requires me to have an interlock device for 6 months, and I know that Michigan does not require one for your first offense. Do they look up the records in other states and determine the status then? Current to Michigan's DUI laws upon reinstatement of a license, I have done everything I should have to be able to get a license. According to Arizona's laws, I need the interlock device. Would Michigan overlook this, since their requirements are different for a first time DUI offender? Or would I have to comply with the Arizona laws and get an interlock device to get my license reinstated in Arizona first.
Michigan Secretary of State will check the National Driver Registry, and will presumably find your name on it with a...

I am wondering if I have any grounds to fight an MIP i got in Michigan. It is my second one but the first was deferred.
I was in line to leave a state park. A DNR officer came up and said they had a report of someone smoking marijuana in a blue Ford Taurus. I was a passenger in the car. I didn't know why they stopped us because we were in a green Taurus, not a blue one. They then said they didn't smell marijuana and left. They came back a couple minutes later and saw a beer can in the car. We were then all pulled out of the car and I was given an MIP because they smelled alcohol on me. No one was given a breathalyzer and the driver only received an MIP, not a DUI. The police gave MIPs to the three people they smelled alcohol on. They let another girl in the car drive home because she said she hadn't been drinking, although she had. They also didn't confiscate some alcohol that was in a juice container.
To fight this charge you should contact a local attorney. Good luck.
2nd dui 10 years ago, still no license....help!!!
Is there anything I can do? I recieved a dui in 1995. In Oct, 2000 I recieved a 2nd DUI. During this time I have been denied 3 times for drivers license reinstatement...(reasons: to little elapsed time of sobriety, not enough letters.....). It has now been 10 years with no license. The rejections stripped my self confidence and self worth, and struggle mustering up yet another package. Is there another alternative? I am preparing yet another package, but please if there is another route for license reinstatement It would be greatly appreciated.
You may be able to get a license in CO.

Can I have a felony drunk-driving cleared?
This event was over 20 years ago I am not on probation parole or owe any fines. Nor do I drink any longer
If you are talking an expungement, then No, a Dwi/Dui is not an expungable offense.
