That sucks, don't expect the police to help. You need a lawyer. The cops couldn't care less.
I was charged for felony DUI & Test refusal and was not the inital driver of my vehicle. The police reports are also conflicting
I was a passenger in my own vehicle when a citizen reported my car swaying in the lane. The driver turned into a McDonald's restaraunt and I took over the driver side to see the menu and order. Just then I looked in the rear view mirror and the red lights were on us. I was told to pull over to the side and me and the driver switched seats again. I was charged as the driver going all over the road and failed my field sobriety test. After reading the police reports from three separate officers, the reports have conflicting information about who was actually behind the wheel at the time of the stop. Also I was on seroquel which is a strong anti-pychotic medication. I did not do the intoxilizer. Does it sound like I may have a chance to fight this?
Although Avvo is an excellent resource, this question is far more complex than this cite is designed for. In Minnesota...
For arguments sake lets just say dropped dwi and test refusal charges.. how do i get my vehicle back from forfeiture..??
DWI, Test refusal, refused chemical testing, license restriction violation .vehicle forfeiture. charged 1/19/15. Public defender and prosecutor have both been removed and is now 2/10/2016 All charges except license restriction violation are dropped..discovery still not provided, to date.. Obviously corrupt prosecutor and public defender, collaboration withholding evidence..etc.. What happens to my vehicle..Obviously no advice from former public defender.. lien holding bank was never notified about the forfeiture either..Yet No one will say anything other than "Its a civil matter" The last charge will be dropped or thrown due to spoilage and or evidence tampering.police misconduct , so where is my vehicle and how do i get it back.. who do i sue??

How likely is it that I will be charged with a DUI after the fact of my minor consumption?
I was sitting in my car at a gas station when two police officers pulled up. They said they were told two young girls appeared to be drinking. My friend and I both received underage consumption tickets and we walked home. I'm worried they might try to charge me with a DUI, but they never said anything about being in my car. Is it likely that they will upon paying my minor consumption ticket? The ticket itself had to be mailed to me and my vehicle is listed on it, but not my BAC level and it only says alcohol consumption by person under 21.
