Can I get my OWI lessened to reckless driving?
The officer followed me for over a mile, from the outskirts of town, through town, and multiple corners, before pulling me over for crossing the center line on a road the doesn't have a painted, distinguished, line. Also, in our town, there is odd and even parking in the winter time. During that night the vehicles were to park on the side of the road in which I was driving, forcing me over, past the middle of the road. Also, there was snow earlier that week and the roads were covered enough that you couldn't see the blacktop. In this, the officer had also found a small amount of marijuana and a pipe, which he said he could not charge me with because he illegally searched my car. This is my first offence and since the event the county police officers have been driving past my work and home.
Under WI law, drunk driving charges can't be amended without a finding by the court that it is not against the public...
Should I get my occupational license now?
I just had my initial appearance for an OWI 2nd this morning. Should I try and get my occupational license immediately, or should I wait until after I am convicted to get it?
You can't get an occupational if your license is still valid. If you are administratively suspended, and your license...
1st offense DUI in WI moved to IL denied an IL license
My 30yo nephew, operating on a valid WI DL, was arrested in WI in 2011 for 1st offense OWI while driving a friend's car. He plead guilty & completed everything required except having an IID installed on a vehicle. This conviction & the speeding ticket received at the same time are the only driving offenses he has had - ever! He does not own a vehicle and still doesn't. He uses a bicycle, public transportation, or relatives for rides. He has moved to IL and tried to apply for an IL license. He was denied until he 'clears up' his WI requirements. What does that mean? Can he apply for an IL occupational license? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I suggest your nephew speak directly with the WI DMV and find out what he needs to file with them or show them. It may...
2nd offense minor in possession of alcohol ticket advice.
My friends and were driving late at night after some of us had some beers at a bonfire. We were on our way back when we were pulled over for seemingly no reason. Turns out no traffic violations were committed, but they pulled us over under suspicion that we had been ding dong ditching in the neighborhood. There had been a few reports of the kids messing around in the neighbor hood, but no description that they were in a similar car or driving at all. So they essentially pulled us over for being five kids in a car. They ended up noticing alcohol in the car and i received a citation for being a minor in possession of alcohol, even though I blew 0.00. This is my second offense and I'm not sure if i should spend money on an attorney or if I can fight the charges myself.
You won't know how to do the type of motion to get a case like this dismissed. Hire an attorney or ask for a public...
Is it common to request blood test chain of custody proof before pleading
I would like verification that blood test results are truely mine but all you get is a piece of paper, no evidence of chain of custody, training records or equipment calibration and maintenance.
No, it is not very common. The chain of custody usually includes the law enforcement officer who personally observed...
Question about Wisconsin DUI 2nd offense. Please help!?
My mother has been pulled over once in 2011. She was arrested for drunk driving. This was her first offense. Last week of this year she was pulled over for her second offense. She blew a .22 on the breathalyzer. I believe .8 is safe? I'm hearing that she will have to do jail time. Is there anything less that the judge will give her? Like something out of jail? What are the chances? As much as people make mistakes my mother doesn't belong in jail. She never hurt a fly or committed any other crimes. Thank you to those who answer.
There is a 5 day minimum jail sentence for OWI 2nd cases. She's looking at a lot more time than that considering the...
I got a second OWI with a possession and paraphernalia 2nd as well on my 24th birthday.09(again) Do I have any chance?
I was out on my birthday, the reason I was stopped was I forgot to turn on my headlights. It's so hard to tell the difference in my car, I was completely compliant with the officers, however, they did not find the marijuana ad pipe till we were in the jail as it was hidden in my underwear. Im not a bad person, I actually quit drinking after my first offense, but it had been a while and things were going well so I decided to have some drinks. I was not swerving or driving bad, and I just want a lawyer who is very good to aggressively help me fight this. When he read me the questionnaire to be tested, I originally said no, and then said yes but I didn't understand, is there any chance there? Also he didn't read me my rights until after I was already tested, I dont know the rules, just trying
