How can I find someone to take this case?
I currently have a pending case for OWI 4th. I wish to take this case to jury trial however, I have a problem. I was appointed a public defender on this case. He did not agree with my decision to take the case to trial so he withdrew himself from my case. I was then appointed another. We were scheduled for jury trial and had gone over nothing. Not my statement, my testimony, nothing. When I saw her at the final pretrial, she said we would have to go over it at a later date. However, that date never came. I tried calling, both her cell and office, emailing, everything I could for two weeks and could not reach her. I asked her to step down. The PD office will not reappoint nor will the court. I was told to retain counsel within a week or be put in jail. I can't afford to do so. What can I do
If you cannot afford (even borrowing the money) to hire private counsel, and the court will not relieve counsel, you...

Got picked up 1st OWI, went to Court judge dismissed OWI but charge for the PAC. Is PAC the same as OWI charge?
My husband got picked up 1st OWI, the state attorney had the judge dismiss OWI but found guilty on the PAC becasue his bac was .16 he got it lowered to .15 but that didn't make any difference he still got the fines and IID required to be installed in car. So is the PAC the same as OWI meaning it stays on your record for years and is it charged the same way being on your driving record for insurance? Also if he would get picked up again would that be his 2nd owi or his 1st?
PAC is driving with a prohibited alcohol concerntration. Essentially it is one of two "drunk driving" variations, with...

Can I defeat my dui charge based on the officer not offering me a different test due to my injuries?
I had 5 ribs broken and a punctured lung just prior to this and said i couldn't do the walk and turn test, he placed me under arrest and didn't even offer a different test.
While this could certainly help your argument that the police officer didn't have probable cause to arrest you, he...
I recieved an underage ticket before probation starts for 12 months because of a DUI. Will this violate my probation?
I recieved an underage ticket last night when my buddy was pulled over and I was in the front seat. He walked away with a warning I walked away with an underage ticket and possession of false ID.. My probation for a DUI half a year ago starts in May and court for these tickets is the end of April. What do I do? And will this violate the probation or anything? I'm freaking out can anyone shine some light for me? Also how serious are these charges? I appreciate any response thank you
Not if you got the ticket "before" you were placed on probation. But...you might want to wait until your 21 before you...
Is there any chance to reduce a 2nd offense OWI to a 2nd 1st offense OWI in La Crosse, WI?
I was cited a 2nd offense OWI recently in La Crosse, WI, which was 9 years and 50 weeks apart from the 1st OWI (4/2/05). I have a very good job which could be at risk, and would like to avoid incarceration at all costs (or minimize to 48 hours). Would any lawyer in the area be able to reduce this to no jail time? Thank you in advance for your responses.
Because your OWI arrest was within 10 years of the previous OWI arrest date (conviction dates are irrelevant) you are...
