What should I do? Its my first DUI.
I cant afford a lawyer. I asked the Judge to provide me a lawyer but he wont. Wouldnt that violate the 6th Amendment? I also tried to find the local bar association in Winona but I cant find it anywhere online. Its my first time getting DUI so im clueless on what to do.
You only get a court appointed lawyer if you qualify financially. You must make or have too much money. The threshold...
How likely will I get 1 year restriction no alcohol at all for first time DWI.
Got a first time DWI, blew .14. No one was hurt and nothing was damaged. No prior offenses. Did get a speeding ticket with it. Prosecuting attorney offered me a deal of a fine, one year probation, and no alcohol for a year. I am fine with everything but wondering why I would be charged with no alcohol and not just no other driving related incidents. How likely is it the judge will throw that out or if I agree he does not have an option.
If you accept the plea agreement then the judge will impose all aspects of it, including the alcohol restriction. If...
What constitutes coercion in mn dui breath test?
A high blood sugar diabetic and tested.13 after one drink almost 4 hours later on breath test.I asked for blood test but was denied. Cop knew of my prior felony dui. But said if I took and failed breath test I would only be held 12 hours not seven years, could get my truck back after 12 hours not forfeited, and license back in 30 days not six years. Isn't that coercion? Also told me to pee my pants instead of letting me use bathroom, if I chose to contact an attorney.

TAIP Assessment/IID Violation in Texas (MN DWI Case)
I had an interlock violation (.010,.007) reading recently and my PO here in Texas said I had to complete a TAIP assessment suggested by Ramsey County, which I did. I am set to meet with my PO in a week and I am off probation 8/25. I did not drink alcohol for that reading and I know I used mouthwash leaving the gym the morning in question. I have a strong feeling that the TAIP assessment office will come back with a relapse prevention recommendation (6-8 weeks). How can I fight this since I am so close to getting off probation? FYI, Travis county is only monitoring my case from Ramsey County. They didnt issue a warrant or revoke my probation.
If you don't like what they decide down there, then you could file a motion with the court up here in Ramsey County....
