Do I need to take an alcohol assessment test before or after my court date ?
I have a couple hearings coming up. I was charged with an OWI, but not convicted yet. Do I need to take the alcohol assessment test before my court date or will taking that test be part of my sentencing ?
That will be required by the court prior to sentencing. If you get it done now, make sure it is from an approved...
Can I get the alcohol charges dropped ?
I crashed my truck a mile from my house, into the woods. No other person or vehicle was involved. Perviously my record was spotless, driving and criminal. I proceeded to have my friends pick me up and take me home, where I started drinking because of my nerves. An hour or 2 later I called the cops and told them about my accident. I told them I bought 3 shots at the bar earlier that night, and I was drinking when they came to my house. I was never pulled over or given any kind of breathalyzer or field sobriety tests at, in or near my vehicle. But I was at my house. I passed the field sobriety tests but I blew a .015. They proceeded to arrest me and charge me with an owi. Is it possible to get the alcohol charges dropped? What's the lowest this could potentially be knocked down to?

Can you get your first MIP removed from your public record?
My boyfriend got an MIP about a year ago. His first one ever. Alcohol was in his system. Not much, but some. They put him on probation and he completed the terms of probation then was released from. Now, the MIP is on his public record and his EX probation officer said she doesn't know anything about removing it. I took a look into MCL 436.1703 (1) (a) and I read that after the first one, if probation is completed, it shall be dismissed....Is there paperwork to get this done? This being on his public record has raised our car insurance even though he was not driving or even in a car at the time of his MIP.
It depends upon what the terms of his plea and sentence were. Diversion programs are not automatic. If he was given...
License restoration after 2duis and 2 dwls?
I currently hv revoked license...due to two dui convictions, although I actually hv 3 1999, 2009 and 2013. The first 2 were counted as 1st offenses! I completed sobriety court and probation without a problem and arranged a appeal in 2015 and lost! Up to this point I still had the baid device and didn't hv it removed for additional 6 months...no one at Secretary of State could tell if I should hv it cuz my license was showing revoked not restricted with baid! I would like to get my license back but now I am facing a 2nd dwls charge and this had been in the past 6 months...I am sober since the last dui and I do not attend meetings anymore for personal reasons! Both times I was pulled over was from simply running my plate on my car...neither time had I violated any roadway laws aside for dwls... is there any hope for my license to be restored?
States typically offer "conditional" or otherwise "restricted" licenses if you can establish that an actual or...

DUI Blood Test Results in Michigan?
I was in a roll over accident 2 1/2 months ago, no one was injured. I was quickly rushed to the ambulance, though I remarkably had no injuries. The EMT asked me if I had anything on me because they could smell the odor of marijuana so I handed the EMT the bag of about 15gs I had in my hoodie. She handed it to the cop and I was escorted to the hospital by the cop. After my medical examinations I was asked to concede to a blood test. I was not intoxicated at the time but I knew I had several different drugs in my blood stream from past use so I declined not knowing how harsh the penalty was. The cops got a warrant and blood tested me anyway. They did not however arrest me for the weed possession or the DUI. I was not taken to the police station or processed or anything. I have received a notice that my license is now invalid for a year due to refusing to the test, however I have not received any notices about the DUI. I am relatively confident that my blood would have tested positive for something so what does this mean? Am I off the hook or is there just a major delay.
First of all, you need to hire an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your situation in greater detail. It's...
I am charged with a DUI. Will it hurt to get a defense lawyer from a neighboring county?
I'm .22 which in Michigan is "Super Drunk". I really like a defense lawyer from a neighboring county, but wonder if getting one in the same county might POSSIBLY get me a better result, perhaps the lawyer & DA are friends & could plea things down more?
Hi, thanks for your question. If you feel the attorney in the neighboring county is a good fit for you, it shouldn't...
