OWI 1st in Wi-ANY chance of judge waiving IID entirely?
I had a bac of .19. Is there ANY chance of the judge waiving the ignition interlock device (not just giving lowered fees) due to financial hardship (or any other reason)? If it's of any consequence-I'm a 37 year old business owner, single mother of a 4 year old. I have a squeaky clean record (til now). Incidentally (or not?) I haven't had a drop of alcohol since the incident-a month ago. I never was a habitual drinker (have a good "reason"for driving that night) so that wasn't an issue; just the thought of a glass of wine now makes me nauseous.
Sure, there is a chance; but frankly, not a good one. The WI DOT actually threatened to charge a judge with misconduct...
First OWI in WI, Can judge waive IID?
My bac was .19 . Through google-ing I just found out that an IID is required if bac is over .15. Is there any way a judge can (be convinced to) waive it? years ago my now ex husband was convicted of his 3rd. I wrote a letter saying I was pregnant and we couldn't afford it, and the judge waived it. (I've totally learned my lesson) Hoping to spare my 5 year old memories of mommy blowing into her breathalyzer :(
My best advice to you is too find a very accomplished DUI attorney in WI to handle your case. This is the best money...
DUI Conviction in WI. Live In South Carolina.
I lived in WI in 2000 and was arrested for DUI 3rd. I moved to SC before the issue was resolved. I have never held an SC license. I returned to Wisconsin in August, 2010 to answer for charges. . I plead “no contest”, served my jail sentence and returned to my home to South Carolina. I spoke to the SC DMV and they explained to me that they cannot issue any type of restricted license, as I am currently revoked in another state and have never had an SC license. Attorneys down here have advised me to consult an Attorney in Wisconsin. Is there any possible course of action that might enable me to get my license reinstated in any capacity or reduce the duration of the revocation? Would a sentence modification be applicable here? Thank you for your help.
There are actions that you can take. However, without knowing what the charges were exactly, and the ensuing penalties,...
How much will be the fine be and am I required to have an ignition interlock device?
Pulled over for not yielding, and operating with a controlled substance 346.63(1)(AM). This is my first offense for OWI. It was for cannabis use. Was very compliant with the officer. Consented to do a blood test. I have not yet gone to required court appearance. I also received a mail reading "This court MUST order ignition interlock device". I had no alcohol content and was tested by the police officer with a breathalyzer and blew a 0.
Re-read the form mailing and see if there is an "if" associated with that "must". http://wisconsindot.gov/Documents/...
What happens if you get a DUI from hitting another running car when drunk?
What is the likely consequence for someone who hit a moving vehicle when drunk, and this is their 4th DUI within approx 20 years? The person hit was not injured. Their last DUI was approx 3 1/2 years ago and they were allowed to complete a 7 month sentence in a work release facility. For this DUI, they were put in County jail and will be there indefinitely until their court date . The person at fault does not have money to pay for a lawyer.
That'd be a felony. The minimum confinement is 6 months jail. Maximum is 6 years prison. The likely consequences...
If you could provide any information about how long these offenses will be on my record that would be very helpful. Thank you.
Hello, I recently received two tickets; one for underage drinking and another for violating closing hours of a campus facility in Madison, WI. I have not been convicted of any crimes previously.
You should contest the charges and consider hiring local counsel if you're not comfortable with doing that yourself....
What can I do? What are my rights?
I am being charged with an OWI 2nd offense in 9 years. I retained an attorney. He is dead set on taking it to trial. I had my final pretrial conference with the district attorney this past Friday. Prior to going in I asked my attorney if we could settle or come to a deal. He said they would not make a deal with an OWI case. I sat through each other defendants homework all offer deals on their case. I do not want to take it to trial. One of my Witnesses is a cancer patient who had her tongue removed and now speaks with a voice box and I do not want to put her through that. When I called the District Attorney's office to see if a deal was offered that I was not aware of them for me they will not speak to me because I have an attorney. But I feel that he declined an offer without my knowledge. My trial is set for April 18th which is less than a week away.
You could try hiring a different attorney, and have that attorney negotiate an offer. You're taking action a bit late...
