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?

When a brother takes the fall for his twin brother for a DUI. Can they both be charged for lying?
My best friends ex boyfriend took the fall for his twin brother for a dui. He got convicted and is doing time. Apparently the arresting officer never did prints or anything when arrested the real brother who committed the dui. My friend has evidence that they did this. If she took her information to the police, could they both face more charges? What would happen?
If the story was believed, yes, they could both face additional charges. What would actually happen is anyone's guess.

1st OWI (Traffic Forfeiture) in Wisconsin
I have a 1st OWI case (Case Type: Traffic Forfeiture) that I am currently fighting in Wisconsin. If my employer asks if I have any pending charges (besides minor traffic violation), do I have to answer yes? Can I answer no? I am asking since my minor violations are showing as Traffic Forfeiture as well. Does that mean my 1st OWI is also considered a minor traffic violation?
Even though it is not criminal in WI, an unenhanced first offense OWI is a major traffic violation.
