  • Former DA awaits decision in disciplinary hearing

    Wednesday Jul 19 | via Kenosha News 

    A judge is expected to decide within 30 days whether a state Office of Lawyer Regulation case against former Kenosha District Attorney Robert Zapf is an unwarranted "poke in the eye" or whether in failing to make clear that a Kenosha Police Department officer planted evidence in two cases his office prosecuted that Zapf violated disclosure rules. The Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation is accusing Zapf, who retired at the end of last year, of three counts of professional misconduct for his handling of the 2015 prosecution of two men who were charged with homicide in the shooting death of another man during a robbery related to a drug deal.

Can someone help me with my DUI
I have a DUI from 2012 and wanted to reopen the case so was looking for help if anyone was willing to help and would really appreciate it.
Whether or not this is even possible would depend on a number of factors. Did you plea guilty or found guilty at trial?...
2 revocations due to owi refusal 4 years ago. Will I go to jail?
4 years ago I got an owi and refused my breathalyzer. My license was revoked for 1 year. Now 1 year ago I got the 2 revocations due to owi refusal. I went to start my alcohol assessment and was told I need an IID now also. I don't even have a vehicle anymore. As long as I am in my assessment stage what will the state of Wisconsin do to me. As far as I know the 2 revocations are the only violations for anything in the last 5 years.
Jail is a possibility for an operating after revocation, yes. I've come across DAs who recommend jail after 1 or 2 of...
I have just recently received my second DUI and am worried about what my sentencing will look like.
I am so ashamed of myself. I rear ended someone leaving a restaurant after a meal and a couple drinks (4 drinks to be exact, I was not completely hammered). After coming to a stop I got out of the vehicle and asked the passengers if they were okay and they both said they were fine and they denied EMT service. Barely any damage (if any) to their vehicle. I politely refused the breathalyzer knowing that I would be a little over the legal limit (still not sure if that was a terrible decision or not). While sitting in the police station the passengers I hit called the cop who arrested me after refusing to blow and said that they had been "shook-up" by the accident. Now its a personal injury case and they got a warrant for my blood. The test results haven't came back yet but I'm quite certain I won't be very far over the legal limit. No ridiculous BAC to aggravate the case but still over the legal limit. I'm pulling my hair out what is going to come of my sentence. Can anyone please tell me what i am to expect? PS. The officer charged me with a first offense DUI. My previous DUI (for cannibis) may have been dismissed. But for the sake of preparing for the worst, let's call it my 2nd
There are different penalties for a first offense and a second offense. Decide which offense it is and the attorneys...
What is the post judgement interest rate for a DUI?
I was convicted of DUI in 2007 and had a judgement of $1366.50 as a fine. I was charged interest at $4.80 (4.25%apr)a month for 12 months, but have subsequently been charged $13.67 (12%apr) a month for about 5.5 years. I obviously forgot about the fine but I need to pay it off. Am I being charged the correct interest? If not, how can I rectify this? It seems as if I am being charged more than the state statute calls for on civil judgements.
I am not licensed in Wisconsin, but in California it is ten percent. I would think it ought to be the same in...
I have a Wisconsin driver's license and I got a DUI in Illinois. It is the third DUI I have gotten in Illinois.
An Illinois lawyer told me I face a one year suspension and a possible revocation of my license in Illinois. How does this affect my Wisconsin DL? If I get convicted what happens to my Wisconsin license.
You will have your Wisconsin DL revoked. Your DL in Wisconsin is the one that IL will revoke or suspend.
