Does the suffix missing on my last name on a citation for drunk driving help throw out the charge?
I was arrested for an OWI (Operating While Impaired). I received my first citation when I left the jail and it only had an OWI charge. When I got to work the next night the arresting officer came to my job three times. First, to ask if I had found my driver's license. I replied no, as I lost it earlier. The second time to give me an updated citation and he told me to rip the other up and throw it away and the third time to take pictures of my car. When I look at both citations they do not have II (the second) on them. Any advice on this?

Can I be asked to take a drug test prior to testifying in court? I was the victim in a DV case.
If I testify against this guy, for violating terms of probation, no contact order from convicted assault charge, can I be asked to submit a drug screen? He will do or say anything to keep me from testifying and I think this is a scare tactic he made up. He says I will be held in contempt of court if I failed a mouth swab drug test prior to testifying against him. I'm not on probation or being charges with anything.

Can I answer no to DWI when obtaining car insurance quotes
I pled guilty to a DWI with SIS in December 2014. (The Dwi occurred in Missouri but I now reside in Michigan) Once 2 years passes (December 2016) it will be removed from my record. So two questions: 1. Once I am able to remove SR22, will that lower my rate? 2. Once the charge is dropped completely in December, am I able to answer "no" to this question by car insurance companies: "Have you had any DUI/DWI violations in the last 5 years"? Thank you!!
1. Yes. 2. Interesting question - key word "violations" - Asker, it's not asking for a conviction. It's only asking...
