Can I be found guilty of DUI if I blew a .06 at the station? Pulled over for improper turn.
Pulled over for improper turn. Blew .06 at station and still charged with DUI. Officer stated I put my foot down during one leg stand. Aside putting foot down twice I performed quite normally on the field sobriety test. Prosecutor offered Careless driving which I declined. Will any prosecutor pursue this to trial? ( or would judge even let it go to trial)? Thanks.
Yes it's possible. Even if you're under .08, the state can still try to prove that you were under the influence. Yes...
What will my dwi sentencing look like?
I was just arrested for a dwi, second degree. I was also charged with 5th degree controlled substance (is that a felony?). I already have the in home monitoring system rigged to go off every 12 hours, i will have this till at least my next court date in about a month.

I had a test fail with my ignition interlock. I called the installer & he informed me to stick with until I pass.
I had a test fail with my ignition interlock. I called the installer right away & had a 5-10 minute conversation about what was happening he informed me to stick with it until I passed. After our phone conversation I brushed my teeth & rinsed my mouth! Went back to my car & which about 10 or so minutes had lapsed. The device said test canceled. I turned off the ignition & then back on. I Then passed. I haven't drank for nearly 2 years. I'm wondering what the potential consequences could be & what I should do going forward?
We have seen this issue over and over again with False positives. It is likely the DPS will send you a letter in the...
I had a test fail on an ingnition interlock. I then called the installer he informed to keep testing until I passed.
I went back to my car the time had lapsed & the device said test canceled. In that time Maybe 10 minutes had passed. I turned off the ignition then turned it back on & passed. What are going to be the consequences as far as my driving privileges go? Should I contact DMV about a false positive test?
Generally a failed Interlock device test means that the result will be recorded and MN DVS notified.
When do I get my license plates back after dui dismissal?
I was stopped about a month ago, and the stop led to me getting a 2nd degree dui, but before my second court date, all charges were dismissed. The cop had no probable cause for the stop since why he pulled me over was not illegal. This would have been my third in ten years (09/10). I blew a .100. I haven't had my implied consent hearing yet. I was just wondering if I have to wait until I hear the results of that before I can get new plates on my truck or what? Which I'm assuming I will have to wait and find out what happens at that first, but I wasn't positive. Thank you guys.
The dismissal of your criminal case doesn't necessarily mean that you win the implied consent case. You have to wait...
