I was drunk sitting in my car. police came and talked to me but i dont remember what they said. I know i didnt do a breath test or anything. But when i went back to my car in the morning my registration papers were on the passenger seat. I would like to know if i can be charged with DUI, and if so i didnt receieve any papers. Will they mail them to my address on the registration? or should i not worry about this, as they would have to do more to charge me?
It would seem that you should be in a better position to answer that question than any lawyer (who was not there)....
I was recently convicted of 2nd Degree DUI in MN. I sent in the vehicle forfeiture challenge and implied consent challenge last Dec. My court date for my vehicle is Dec 22 and my license is Jan 5th. The vehicle is worth more than $15,000 and will be in district court. The loan on the vehicle has a balance of $19,000. Can anyone tell me what the chances are I will get the vehicle returned, sell it, or return it to the lien holder? Also the Dept of Public Safety informed me that I will have a 1 year limited license and 2 year restricted (Ig Interlock), so there is no hard revocation? They told me since I live in TX now, I just need to pay the fine and complete classes, etc. Thanks AC
I hope you have legal counsel retained to handle this situation. If not, you should get an experienced MN DWI attorney...
I recently hired a dwi lawyer, of course this is my first time and I do not know much about how laws or lawyers do there job. My lawyer that I paid half already says just wait till court date and we will go on from there. I don't know if he even investigated my case nor did he gather any information about my case. Is that really how it works that my lawyer waits till court date and never informs me about anything else?
Every lawyer has a different approach, but above all you should be comfortable with how your case is being handled. I...

DWI enhancement. I am wondering if my prior DWI can be used to enhance a recent one I got. I was revoked on my prior DWI . . .
. . . more than 10 years ago, but was convicted less than 10 years ago. Can they use it to enhance? Thank you for your help.
Yes they can go by the conviction date or the revocation date. You should contact an experienced DWI attorney to...
My car has been deemed a total loss after a drunk driver hit me and his insurance company won't let me keep my car.
The drunk driver’s insurance company is totaling out my car. There is a lone on the car. They are telling me that I have to come up with the money to pay off the loan before I can retain ownership of the car. I want them to pay off the loan, deduct the value of the car from the settlement, and give me a check for the remainder with a salvaged title. There reply has been that there’s a MN state law saying that they can’t pay off the loan on the car without taking ownership of the vehicle. They will pay off the loan only if they get to keep the car in other words otherwise I have to come up with the money to pay off the loan before I can keep the car and receive a check from them. Why do I have to come up with money to pay off the loan before I can keep the car? FYI: the driver was arrested.
You may want to check your loan documents and see if you have GAP insurance. GAP covers the difference between what...
