2nd OWI offense/Being marked as a refusal.
Officer #1. The intoximeter test had already been started he informed officer 2 that the informing accused needed to be read, he read it and I refused to answer if I would submit. Officer#2. I gave a breath sample during the Intoximeter test, the other officer came back and said he didn't read the Informing the Accused had not been read. They then read it to me. Shouldn't they have read it to me first? They said if I refused it everything would be easier in the long run. So I didn't answer, I didn't know what to say. They marked me as a refusal. I did research -because they never gave me my id back- and they never told me if I was a refusal I lose my license for a year. They also stated I sat on the curb before the arrest and wouldn't get up. My two friends saw me get right into the car
Based upon the facts posted, you may have a defense to the refusal, IF you requested a hearing in a timely manner. Don'...
Underage Drinking. DUIs
I was driving to a gas station,and then I came out and a cop was next to my car. She must've known that I drove to the gas station. She tested me knew I was intoxicated. My ticket was $240, but she didn't charge me with a DUI. Does that mean I got lucky?! Will she bring it up during my court date that I was driving?
Were you only cited, and not arrested? If you were not arrested, and she let you drive away, then she must not have...
Can i get an underage dropped if i wasn't breathalyzed?
Hi, I just got an underage last weekend in Wisconsin and was wondering what my options were. Here's the details: I was outside my house around 8:30 still light out, and i was just talking to my friend when two cops were walking down the alley and saw a beer bottle in my hand. One stopped and cited me and my friend for underage drinking. However, the cop stated that he didnt right down that i had a bottle and he didn't breathalize either of us. He also said something about a "watch" going on in the neighborhood so he had to give us an underage. I was wondering if there was any possibility of me fighting this charge, i never admitted to drinking either although it was my first beer im almost 20 years old and, turn 21 in 4 months
If there is no hard evidence (e.g. you weren't breathalyzed or given any sobriety tests), you should fight the citation.
Can i get out of this underage?
So i had a bonfire at my house. The cops came and gave a few people underages, i ran and wasnt seen. Two days later, i recieved court days one for underage and other for possession of drug parafenilia. For the underage i want to get out of it cuz its 456 bucks! which is really high priced if you ask me. If they never breathalyzed me, or seen me for that fact i dont see how i got it. My friends said they didnt rat me out, and if they did i dont believe they can go off hear say. Yes it was my house, but my brother threw the bonfire. The drug parafanilia some of my pipes were found in my friends purse and well if it wasnt in my purse with my indentification how did i get a ticket. Once again, Hear say? idk wut to do. Not guilty???? HELP.
Hearsay is an out-of-court statement offered in court to prove the truth. Here's an example. If a police officer...
Should I get my occupational license now?
I just had my initial appearance for an OWI 2nd this morning. Should I try and get my occupational license immediately, or should I wait until after I am convicted to get it?
You can't get an occupational if your license is still valid. If you are administratively suspended, and your license...
1st offense DUI in WI moved to IL denied an IL license
My 30yo nephew, operating on a valid WI DL, was arrested in WI in 2011 for 1st offense OWI while driving a friend's car. He plead guilty & completed everything required except having an IID installed on a vehicle. This conviction & the speeding ticket received at the same time are the only driving offenses he has had - ever! He does not own a vehicle and still doesn't. He uses a bicycle, public transportation, or relatives for rides. He has moved to IL and tried to apply for an IL license. He was denied until he 'clears up' his WI requirements. What does that mean? Can he apply for an IL occupational license? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I suggest your nephew speak directly with the WI DMV and find out what he needs to file with them or show them. It may...
2nd offense minor in possession of alcohol ticket advice.
My friends and were driving late at night after some of us had some beers at a bonfire. We were on our way back when we were pulled over for seemingly no reason. Turns out no traffic violations were committed, but they pulled us over under suspicion that we had been ding dong ditching in the neighborhood. There had been a few reports of the kids messing around in the neighbor hood, but no description that they were in a similar car or driving at all. So they essentially pulled us over for being five kids in a car. They ended up noticing alcohol in the car and i received a citation for being a minor in possession of alcohol, even though I blew 0.00. This is my second offense and I'm not sure if i should spend money on an attorney or if I can fight the charges myself.
You won't know how to do the type of motion to get a case like this dismissed. Hire an attorney or ask for a public...
