I have a chance to get A raise at work but I need a CDL in order to get it. I am too drunk driving one from 99 and the other one is from 2007.
Whether you can get a Wisconsin conviction expunged would depend on Wisconsin law. You should ask the question of a...

Needing advice! College student
Age:19 Was passenger in vehicle and pulled over for a headlight out. Almost empty bottle of wine was rolling around on the backseat floor (less than 2oz.) the bottle was from a previous weekend camping after cleaning up recyclables and bottles from large college group. Friend and I did not realize there was anything left in the bottle (thus it rolling around on backseat floor) both blew 100% sober. I claimed the bottle as my own seeing as I picked it up from the campsite ( I wanted to paint it and make it a vase) and was written a ticket for open intoxicant in vehicle passenger. I have no priors, not even a speeding ticket. Have never been pulled over before even. Full time student and employed full time as well. Good GPA. Looking for advice as I've never been in a situation like this.

Owi 2nd after bariatric surgery and varying pbt results. Defense options?
I was pulled over for loud exhaust and seatbelt. The officer told me he had no driving history but smelled alcohol. I passed all but balance sobriety tests (diabetic and don't have good balance) I assume I was border line on the nystigmus test as he performed it 3 times. The pbt result was .082. Because if the diabetes they wanted blood which I submitted to. I asked for a second pbt for my own knowledge at the hospital. The officer agreed and the results were .066. I know blood is often a little higher than breath. I asked for this because I monitored what I was drinking as I made changes in my life and never wanted to repeat the mistakes I made 5 years ago. My blood came back at .102. Have any of you seen this with your bariatric clients before? After official results I will hire a lawye.
It may have nothing to do with your medical conditions but rather a rising blood alcohol content. I'm guessing it was...
Will I have to have a ignition interlock on my vehicle?
I had a DUI when I was 22, and just got pulled over for a OWI, and I am now 47. I blew a .22, I am guessing this is a super drunk and was wondering if I should get a court appointed attorney, and if the Judge will say I need the ignition interlock on my vehicle.
Yes! Hire a local OWI lawyer ASAP. I have on several occasions been successful in convincing a prosecutor to reduce a...
