I currently have a pending case for OWI 4th. I wish to take this case to jury trial however, I have a problem. I was appointed a public defender on this case. He did not agree with my decision to take the case to trial so he withdrew himself from my case. I was then appointed another. We were scheduled for jury trial and had gone over nothing. Not my statement, my testimony, nothing. When I saw her at the final pretrial, she said we would have to go over it at a later date. However, that date never came. I tried calling, both her cell and office, emailing, everything I could for two weeks and could not reach her. I asked her to step down. The PD office will not reappoint nor will the court. I was told to retain counsel within a week or be put in jail. I can't afford to do so. What can I do
If you cannot afford (even borrowing the money) to hire private counsel, and the court will not relieve counsel, you...

My husband got picked up 1st OWI, the state attorney had the judge dismiss OWI but found guilty on the PAC becasue his bac was .16 he got it lowered to .15 but that didn't make any difference he still got the fines and IID required to be installed in car. So is the PAC the same as OWI meaning it stays on your record for years and is it charged the same way being on your driving record for insurance? Also if he would get picked up again would that be his 2nd owi or his 1st?
PAC is driving with a prohibited alcohol concerntration. Essentially it is one of two "drunk driving" variations, with...
again I have a question
States have different names... Driving under influence, driving while intoxicated...operating while intoxicated....etc.
Question: Have you ever pled guilty, or no contest/nolo contendere, to or been convicted of an ordinance violation (other than minor traffic violations), misdemeanor, or felony?
If you have an attorney that is representing you or did represent you in the DUI, then it is probably best to ask that...
As I walked into Sellery, a University Wisconsin housing dorm, a cop pulled me off to the side because he saw me stumbling. He asked if I would take a breathalyzer and I told him I would feel uncomfortable taking one but told him I had been drinking. He then took down my information and told me he would call me the following week. The officer never called but two weeks later I get a citation with no warning.. What should I plea at my court date? Is there any way I could get the citation lessened dropped or community service?
Your best bet would be to contact and discuss your case with a qualified attorney. They will discuss the facts on your...
I would like to plead guilty and minimize the impact on my family. I am grateful that I was pulled over as I had put myself and others in harms way. My BAC was extremely high and I'm afraid of potential jail time. I spoke with one lawyer and he said that his services could cost up to $5000 if we pursued not guilty. I would like to minimize cost to my family and admit & apologize for my wrong doing.
Put simply, if you're ever charged with a crime, you absolutely need an attorney. This is true whether you plan on...
