2nd OWI offense/Being marked as a refusal.
Officer #1. The intoximeter test had already been started he informed officer 2 that the informing accused needed to be read, he read it and I refused to answer if I would submit. Officer#2. I gave a breath sample during the Intoximeter test, the other officer came back and said he didn't read the Informing the Accused had not been read. They then read it to me. Shouldn't they have read it to me first? They said if I refused it everything would be easier in the long run. So I didn't answer, I didn't know what to say. They marked me as a refusal. I did research -because they never gave me my id back- and they never told me if I was a refusal I lose my license for a year. They also stated I sat on the curb before the arrest and wouldn't get up. My two friends saw me get right into the car
Based upon the facts posted, you may have a defense to the refusal, IF you requested a hearing in a timely manner. Don'...
Can i get an underage dropped if i wasn't breathalyzed?
Hi, I just got an underage last weekend in Wisconsin and was wondering what my options were. Here's the details: I was outside my house around 8:30 still light out, and i was just talking to my friend when two cops were walking down the alley and saw a beer bottle in my hand. One stopped and cited me and my friend for underage drinking. However, the cop stated that he didnt right down that i had a bottle and he didn't breathalize either of us. He also said something about a "watch" going on in the neighborhood so he had to give us an underage. I was wondering if there was any possibility of me fighting this charge, i never admitted to drinking either although it was my first beer im almost 20 years old and, turn 21 in 4 months
If there is no hard evidence (e.g. you weren't breathalyzed or given any sobriety tests), you should fight the citation.
Can i get out of this underage?
So i had a bonfire at my house. The cops came and gave a few people underages, i ran and wasnt seen. Two days later, i recieved court days one for underage and other for possession of drug parafenilia. For the underage i want to get out of it cuz its 456 bucks! which is really high priced if you ask me. If they never breathalyzed me, or seen me for that fact i dont see how i got it. My friends said they didnt rat me out, and if they did i dont believe they can go off hear say. Yes it was my house, but my brother threw the bonfire. The drug parafanilia some of my pipes were found in my friends purse and well if it wasnt in my purse with my indentification how did i get a ticket. Once again, Hear say? idk wut to do. Not guilty???? HELP.
Hearsay is an out-of-court statement offered in court to prove the truth. Here's an example. If a police officer...
First DUI/OWI, restrictions questions. Wisconsin
I got a DUI with a 6 month suspension. I have an occupational license. I got a few questions on what I can or cannot do. 1) Am I allowed to go to bank or other places to pay bills such as credit unions. 2) if I'm on my way home from work, can I go to places like mcdonalds drivethru or into places for food to go on my way home? 3) if I get a ride to a friend place, am I able to drink since I'm not driving or does having a dui make it where I'm not able to drink at all.
Where you can and cannot go is based upon the specific restrictions placed on your occupational license. Going to the...
