Michigan OWI / OWPD and CPL
Is operating a vehicle while on testosterone therapy, cymbalta for fibromyalgia, and methotrexate and prednisone (cordicosteroid) for RA and connective tissue disorder a driving while intoxicated or OWPD offense if these prescriptions do not impair my driving and do not make me intoxicated? I cannot find the definition of intoxicated for all legal prescriptions. As a CPL holder, I am concerned that my right to carry has been stripped by including all prescriptions (vague) in the recent 2013 bill and does not delineating between Schedule 1 and others. Do I need to relinquish my CPL since I take these legally prescribed meds for my RA and fibromyalgia? The CPL license is clever to use "any controlled substance" in their definition of under the influence. Michigan attorneys only please.Thanks
This is a very complicated question, given the amount of prescriptions you are on. You absolutely need to discuss this...
1st dui was dismissed but got another one 5 years later is it still considered a 1st or is it now a 2nd?
Was just wondering.
No. It's only considered a second if you have a prior conviction (OWI, Impaired Driving) within seven years of the new...
Can i be charged with an OWI if i had a BAC of 0.012 after already being charged with failure to report an accident?
1st Misdemeanor, no other problems with the law
Yes. Michigan Vehicle Code 257.625 does not require a certain amount of BAC only that you are driving under the...

Should i get a lawyer for my first offense OWI charge?
I received an OWI a little more than a month ago and it is my first offense. I was stopped doing 22 in a 15. After speaking with one lawyer it was understanding that i needed take a breath test at the station, after my PBT, before a chemical blood test. Also on my "Officers Report of Refusal to Submit to Chemical Test" and my temporary license i was issued they did not mark down my cycle endorsement on them. Can i use this in any way or is it useless. Thank you in advance for any advice or comments.
While I am not licensed to practice law in Michigan I can tell you that it is imperative that you consult with a local...
What will most likely happen after a DUI while on probation for non DUI misdemeanor
Got into a accident that was not my fault no one hurt but blew 1.7. I have the arraignment tomorrow which I plan to plead not guilty and get a lawyer (should I go with a appointed?) I have been on probation for over a year for theft over 1000. What is most likely going to happen?
The high BAC drunk driving will treat you as though the first offense does not exist except for purposes of creating a...
What to do? My mom convicted of DUI after accident on ice; doesn't understand she's been convicted. Court-appointed lawyer
Last winter, we were hit with an ice storm here in Michigan. My mom was on her way home from the grocery store beginning of the storm (3pm), hit a patch of ice and slid off the road and into a very small tree, at a low speed. There was no damage to anything except her OLD car, which the insurance company totaled (it was too old). However, the police decided to arrest her because he asked her if she had anything to drink. Of course she hadn't, but she had taken a Norco, as prescribed by her doctor. My mother has a previously broken back, so shopping is hard for her. Drug test came back - she had nanograms of Norco in her system, along with nanograms of Xanax from the previous night, which she also has a prescription for. My dad has been taking her to court, but now they are talking to me about probation! I asked if she was convicted of a DUI and both say "I don't know what happened". Neither seem to know what the judge did!!! Is this normal to get a DUI for small traces of Norco and Xanax in your blood, even with a script? And is it malpractice by the court-appointed attorney? They don't know what's going on! No previous criminal history. Thank you!
There is nowhere near enough information in your question to give you a complete response. You first need to know if...
