I'm looking for advice regarding a plea bargain or dismissal of a pending municipal OWI ticket.
The situation is unique because the officer stopped me as I was walking through my neighborhood late one evening. I had been drinking earlier in the day and had taken a cab home, leaving my car about .5 miles away where I had been earlier. The officer stopped me while walking (walking to get my laptop out of the vehicle) and was aware I was impaired. He proceeded to let me continue walking. He and a fellow officer drove around the area running plate numbers, hoping to find my car. He arrived at the parking lot where my car was parked before I did. When I clicked the remote control on the car, he proceeded to arrest me for OWI. The car never started, keys never in the ignition, the car never moved. I have a clean driving record. How do I proceed?

Will I "ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO" to have the ignition interlock device installed if I move from WI to CA, not on National Database.
I got a 3rd DUI offense in Wisconsin (10 years apart) but blew over the limit and I am required to have the ignition interlock device. I am done with the 2 years of no license, but now I am required to have the device for 2 more years. I am looking to move to another state for work, and the following applies: 1. Wisconsin is a "non" participant in the Interstate Drivers Compact. 2. I AM NOT ON THE NATIONAL DRIVERS REGISTER (Checked By the California DMV, as I use to live there.) My main question is: 1. Can't I just apply for a brand new license, and register a new vehicle in another state without the ignition interlock device if I am not on the National Drivers Database? 2. When I called California, she said there was no restrictions on my old license (if renewed) and I was not on the National database. So, couldn't I move there and start over? P.s. I have been sober for over 2 years now, and I am justr looking to start over. Any help or advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
You need to check with a CA lawyer, but the answer probably depends on the questions on CA application for renewal....
What happens if you get a DUI from hitting another running car when drunk?
What is the likely consequence for someone who hit a moving vehicle when drunk, and this is their 4th DUI within approx 20 years? The person hit was not injured. Their last DUI was approx 3 1/2 years ago and they were allowed to complete a 7 month sentence in a work release facility. For this DUI, they were put in County jail and will be there indefinitely until their court date . The person at fault does not have money to pay for a lawyer.
That'd be a felony. The minimum confinement is 6 months jail. Maximum is 6 years prison. The likely consequences...
Why is the "imposed and stayed" sentence being used versus the actual conditional jail time?
I regards to 346.63(1)(a) - I was sentenced to 1 year jail, the sentence was imposed and stayed. The condition was 2 years probation with 90 days jail time, fine, and community service. All conditions have been met, probation completed and the sentence was never imposed. IID 24 months + 45 days, completes in the next month. Revocation 24 months + 343.30(1r). DOT has my revocation as 24 months + 1 year.

What is Harris Counties range of extradition or how far would Harris County travel for a class b misdemeanor?
Hello I was wondering how far Harris County in Texas would travel to pick up someone with a class b misdemeanor for a DUI. I'm currently way in Wisconsin(1000 miles away). I imagine this would cost them a gargantuan amount of money to come and collect me.
You are unlikely to be extradited on a misdemeanor offense. That being said, the fact that it is a DUI offense means...
Should I remove it or what should i do? all documentation that I am aware of states that I have an IID order but the DMV doesnt
Back in 2014 I got a dui. I tried fighting the DUI for almost a year and just eventually gave in and said it wasn't worth it. Facts: I denied the blood test, was issued an IID order. IID was installed march 3rd 2015, occupational was given around april 14th. The problem: I had e-mailed and called the dmv multiple times now, in all conversations with the DMV I was told "Good morning, Thank you for using the Wisconsin Department of Transportation's website. Upon review of your record, it was found that Franklin City Municipal Court did not order you to have an Ignition Interlock Device (IID). When you were originally convicted of the Operating While Intoxicated (OWI), you were required to have the IID. However, the case was appealed and the final conviction did not require you to have the IID. You may have the device removed at any time. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns." My lawyer told me if the dmv states you dont need it, remove it. I just dont want this to all start all over again. I want this over with!
