I got my first and only DUI three years ago in South Dakota. I had a minnesota drivers license.
I paid all my fines in South Dakota. Now three years later I received a letter saying Minnesota has suspended my drivers license for that DUI in South Dakota in 2010. I have to pay Minnesota $680 and apply for a new license. There was no accident involved and my BAC was .14. Is it legal for the State of Minnesota to do this?
Because of the interstate compact, traffic offenses in other states can affect your license in MN. It isn't unheard of...
My fiance got a DWI in 2006 as a minor. He just got another this past Friday night. Will the first affect him now?
My fiance got a dwi in 2006 and a minor. He hasn't been charged with dwi since then and just got picked up in our driveway Friday night. According to the jails website he is being charged with 4th degree dwi. However I have people telling me that is wrong and he should be charged with 3rd degree because of his prior in 2006. I'm just curious what people think Will happen in this case.
If his DWI in 2006 was indeed a DWI, as opposed to an underage drinking and driving, then he will likely be charged...
No drugs & Alcohol detected for both DUI cases one year apart; can I reopen the case and appeal?
On October 2013 I was pulled over because I was reported to be swerving around the road". Unfortunately, I had a marijuana pipe in my car of which was found and so the officer suspected I was on drugs. I cooperated with the Breathalyzer, and field sobriety test up until I ended up getting a blood test at the hospital and sitting my ass in jail. I was pulled over in Washburn county, after driving 6 hours from Madison Wisconsin to Duluth Minnesota to pick up my mother whom was kicked out of her home that night. According to the police officer I was pulled over for swerving on the road, give me a damn inattentive driving ticket than. this case is a year old, the laboratory results obviously came back with nothing detected. I need my damn license back. Is it to late to reopen and fight?
More information will need to be known to answer your question - like we're you charged with DWI in 2013 and what...
Any recourse for AZ license cancellation notice due to Minnesota listing 2001 incident on National Driver Register?
Convicted DUI in Tempe, AZ in January 2001 (14+yrs ago). Had valid Minnesota DL at the time. Issued AZ DL in July 2001. Minnesota demands $680 to clear notice they recently posted to Nation Driver Registry related to DUI. AZ has set 8/3/2015 as deadline to clear issue and avoid action in Arizona. Minnesota needs 2+weeks to process and clear; AZ deadline will have passed. Phone calls with both Arizona and Minnesota representatives have provided no assistance, or guidance. How valid is this Minnesota demand, from out-of-nowhere? How can I extend the AZ deadline? How can I avoid $680 payment?
You will have to satisfy all MN requirements before they will clear your status since you held a MN license at the time...
How long do I have to wait to get interlock installed on my vehicle after my license is revoked?
I got a DWI in April and my license is still stated as "valid" in the DMVs system. It will be 3 months revoked the beginning of August. I will not be able to get a full license for most likely a year due to my BAC. I plan on getting the interlock device installed ASAP but cannot do anything until my license is processed "invalid". Will I have to wait a certain period of time once they finally process my revocation? I had money in hand to pay fees but couldn't due to current status of my license. Will I be able to apply for interlock now or do I have to wait? I am starting a full time job also.
Unfortunately you'll have to wait until the DMV updates its system to show her you're revoked before they can accept...
Pressing charges for trespass & underage drinking
We recently learned my 18 y/o stepchild threw a party in our basement while we were on vacation. This is the second time this has happened. Alcohol was consumed, and we have photographic proof of both the party and the presence of alcohol. Stepchild has the code to enter our garage, but was not given permission to throw the party and certainly was not given permission to bring and/or consume alcohol in our house. We are considering pressing trespassing or B&E charges and also informing law enforcement of the underage drinking. Would charges stick even though stepchild knew the code to the garage? What about underage drinking? We only have one picture of someone holding alcohol, and that person may or may not be "of age."
I suggest to you that your problems extend beyond that of a decision of whether or not to contact law enforcement in...
