Do I have a right to travel without a driver's license freely in a automobile for pleasure not for profits
I got two drunk drivings one in 1999 and the other in 2000. I haven't had a drivers license since then. I thought traveling is a right not a privilege protected by the constitution and a right that can't be taken away. The corporation took it away.
There is a right to travel, but driving is a privilege and not a right. The loss of your license does not take away...

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...

I recently got an OWI in Wisconsin, but I am licensed and live in Michigan. What will happen to my MI license?
I recently got an OWI in Wisconsin, but I am licensed and live in Michigan. I received a letter from WI DMV stating that my license is to be suspended for 6 months. Does this apply to my license in Michigan? And if so, how will I know when and for how long it will be suspended for here? I know I can fulfill all probationary requirements in Michigan, but I didn't know what would happen to my license since the suspension is not issued through the state in which I reside and have a license in. I have not been to court yet for this matter.
Chances are Wi will report the OWI to MI, since you are a MI licnesee. Mi will treat it as if the OWI occurred there....

Can a prosecutor change a misdamenor ticket written by a police officer to a felony charge before going to the arraignment?
I was arrested for owi and r&o charge in the state of michigan. I was pulled over and got out and ran but stopped when i realized I couldnt get away. I did not resist after that and did everything the officers told me to do. The ticket was written for attempted r&o. I was told a day before the arraignment that the prosecutor had changed the charge to a felony.
The short answer is yes. They can dismiss the misdemeanor charge and issue on a warrant.
