Is ptsd not considered a defense in a dui?
I had a domestic 7 months ago. For 3 weeks after I had normal ptsd "like symptoms" [i.e. nightmares, anxiety, etc.] But then they went away and I haven't had any trouble since. Well 4 days ago, five hours after a tough session with my therapist I took his advice and socialized with friends for dinner, margaritas and watched the game. I felt fine but I made the foolish mistake of going to my friends apartment (the same apt. complex Where I lived during the domestic) thinking I had overcome my fear. WRONG. Long story short, I was having flashbacks while walking in, I could hear my ex and I fighting in my head and blacked out. Next thing I know, I "snapped into it" on the side of the highway, in my car, reaching for my registration, with a cop asking me if I knew where I was. I had no clue. I contacted my therapist the next day, saw him the day after, he agrees the ptsd got out of hand, the two drinks i had, shouldn't have had me blackout and I now realize this is a serious problem. I wont make the excuse of mental health for my dui, but could it help lessen my sentence if my therapist agrees to speak in court of my condition?
This is not a civil rights question. A diagnosed mental illness is not by itself a defense to any offense, especially a...
On probation n random drug screens at options

If licenses is suspended in Michigan can I get one in Wisconsin
Licenses is suspended in Michigan, and was told about the five states not involved with the NDR. Was told I could get the license in Wisconsin but most likely wouldn't be able to get car insurance. Getting my licenses back in Michigan is not relevant for a couple years.
No, all states are aware of suspensions in other states and won't give you a license until you clear up your license...
Are there any law firms in Green Bay that do pro bono?
I'm facing a second dwi during a bad ptsd episode. My first was an owi 3 years ago that I may want to appeal. Right now I'm not sure what to do because my friend did admit to intoxicating me after telling her I did not want the drink. Yes I am an adult and I should have stopped her and myself but I didn't realize my ptsd was as severe as it is, and I was not in my right mind and was fighting flashbacks, hallucinations and ultimately blacked out. She admitted she pushed me to drink after refusing and I have the blood work of a whopping .18 I havent had a job in 8 months due to the messy domestic, break up, and family court battle I've been going through with my ex and I need help. I am still learning how to deal with my mental illness with my therapist but I have too much to lose [my baby, school, work] if convicted of this criminal offense on top of jail time for a stupid, but honest mental mistake. I just know I won't be able to come up with attorney fees before my court date. Are there any law firms that specialize in Dui criminal charges that offer pro bono or payment plans? Thank you.
Contact the public defender's office for representation. Your second offense is criminal and if you're convicted will...
Can you wear a scram bracelet in place of jail time for a dui?
I made the stupid and foolish mistake of driving home after dinner and margaritas with friends last night. I got pulled over. I also had an owi 3 years ago. So I'm beating myself up for this especially because I'm in a ugly custody battle for my baby after a terrible domestic and a GAL and CPS are involved. I have just been told 5 days is the minimum jail time for 2nd offenses. I'm a stay at home mom. Does Brown county allow a scram bracelet in place for jail time? Is probation a possibility? I'm devastated I just want to start my life over with my son and I feel I just ruined it for us...can anyone help?
Scram bracelets are used for pretrial monitoring, not in the place of jail. Probation is a possibility, but it will...
What's my best option after a dui during a custody battle?
I feel so stupid and helpless. I had a terrible domestic 7 months ago and my custody battle has been a mess. I started therapy again a few weeks ago to deal with the stress and everything was going well until yesterday I had to relive every moment, specify every detail, and emotion I had during the fight to the therapist. The therapist just like my family have all urged me to continue having a social life after the baby and move on in life. Last evening, I went to a restaurant with friends and I had two margaritas and watched the game. Long story short I got pulled over on my way home. I'm freaking out I'm fighting for my son from a narcissistic, drug dealing ex who isn't treating my son right and doing illegal things in my sons presence and I go and foolishly do something this stupid. I already have cps and a GAL involved because of my ex's nonsense. How bad is this offense with my child involved? I'm devastated I don't want to lose my son over dinner and 2 drinks.
It certainly doesn't help your case, but at the same time, no one can say it is a deal buster. I find that "...
