I received an underage drinking - possess - 17-20 violation - and I was just a passenger - how does this affect my records?
I was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for speeding and the deputy gave us a breathe test and then searched the car and found some bottles of alcohol. I was given a ticket with the violation description as "underage drinking - possess -17-20". I am 18 yrs old. Will this affect my entrance into college or my drivers license or my car insurance?
It can result in loss of license, and the penalties for subsequent offenses get progressively worse, see link below....
Charged with 941.20(1)(b) Operate Firearm While Intoxicated & 947.01(1) Disorderly Conduct w/ modifier 939.63 (1)(a)
I pled no contest in january to disorderly conduct (dismissed counts of resist/obstruct & battery) and paid a fine. No probation or anything. New charges came 6/6, offense date of 3/17... charges are above in question... what are the chances of seeing jail time? I also have a record that includes 2 underage drinkings, as well as a possession of paraphenalia (all of which resulted in only a fine)... I am curious with this information what you would try shoot for in a plea, and what you think the D.A will request in the case as a plea agreement up front? Facts in case include i was heard saying i'd be back with my pistol after an argument at the bar. Before leaving with my buddy, i shot four rounds into the air outside the bar... was arrested, and my buddy charged with OWI while i was charged with above charges... please be detailed in what you truly think will be the outcome in Washington County Courts based on this..

My neighbor went to court on his 5th OUI last week. He has an order for Absolute Sobriety and yet drinks a 12 pack every night.
My question is, is he safe to drink in his apartment, or is he in violation of the court order?
I'm not sure how you have the time to watch your neighbor drink an entire 12 pack of beer every night. But a court...
Last Month I got a DWI in Wisconsin, it's my first offence but I blew twice the legal limit on the breath test

Does a court date error on my OWI citation set me free?
I recieved an second OWI citation in person that was valid in every sense, but was told I would recieve a court date by mail. my case was handled by a trainee deputy, overseen by a deputy. I recieved it and its for December 5, 2075. Yes, 2075. I'll be 91 years old. The trainee signed all forms and clearly botched the court date. Does this void my citation, since a court won't rule till I'm dead?
No. Clerical errrors do not result in a dismissal. Look your case up on the internet here:
