My husband received a DWI in Minnesota, 1st time offense. .11 urine test. Does anyone ever get stay of adj with DUI?
Details: 1st time offense, no prior driving violations. age 43. Failed roadside tests also. Thinking to plead straight up as fighting the implied consent usually is to no avail.

Looking for no jail time and unsupervised probation anything else. How would the sentence need to be to get it to be petty msd charge? No jail no probation?
It is possible to get what you desire but it will take a lot of work to try to do so. It appears that your husband has...
