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...
I have a neighbor who got a DWI. She went to court and was told to put whiskey plates on her car.
She said she pleaded not guilty and has a new court date. I do not know if she has previous DWI's. My thoughts r if she was told to put Whiskey plates on her car that she no longer has her license. It washer dad's car and even though she was ordered to put whiskey plates on his car he just went to the DMV and got new plates, not whiskey plates. She has been driving me around and I am worried she is driving without a license. I don't know her license #. How do I find out if she has a license?.
Many valid explanations for your observations. Might be time to put your energy elsewhere.
My fiance got a DWI in 2006 as a minor. He just got another this past Friday night. Will the first affect him now?
My fiance got a dwi in 2006 and a minor. He hasn't been charged with dwi since then and just got picked up in our driveway Friday night. According to the jails website he is being charged with 4th degree dwi. However I have people telling me that is wrong and he should be charged with 3rd degree because of his prior in 2006. I'm just curious what people think Will happen in this case.
If his DWI in 2006 was indeed a DWI, as opposed to an underage drinking and driving, then he will likely be charged...
This is a question about a friend who recently got a DWI
As all she told me was she was arrested , went to court , pleaded not guilty and was ordered to put Whisky plates on the car she was driving... her fathers. Her father thought it was unfair so he went on his own and just got new plates for his car under his name. If she got a DWI that is her concern, not mine under normal circumstances. But she is the person who gives me, my daughters, and elderly mother rides quite often. I don't know if she has ever had a DWI before but even with a first one don't u lose your license for 90 days? She was arrested and her dad had to pick her up and then at court ordered the Whiskey plates. She won't talk anymore about it and no one would know if she is driving her dad's car. I am concerned for my children and mom.. Isn't a 1st DWI 90 suspension?
I think it's highly irresponsible to have your kids drive with a person who was recently arrested for a DUI charge....
No drugs & Alcohol detected for both DUI cases one year apart; can I reopen the case and appeal?
On October 2013 I was pulled over because I was reported to be swerving around the road". Unfortunately, I had a marijuana pipe in my car of which was found and so the officer suspected I was on drugs. I cooperated with the Breathalyzer, and field sobriety test up until I ended up getting a blood test at the hospital and sitting my ass in jail. I was pulled over in Washburn county, after driving 6 hours from Madison Wisconsin to Duluth Minnesota to pick up my mother whom was kicked out of her home that night. According to the police officer I was pulled over for swerving on the road, give me a damn inattentive driving ticket than. this case is a year old, the laboratory results obviously came back with nothing detected. I need my damn license back. Is it to late to reopen and fight?
More information will need to be known to answer your question - like we're you charged with DWI in 2013 and what...
Any recourse for AZ license cancellation notice due to Minnesota listing 2001 incident on National Driver Register?
Convicted DUI in Tempe, AZ in January 2001 (14+yrs ago). Had valid Minnesota DL at the time. Issued AZ DL in July 2001. Minnesota demands $680 to clear notice they recently posted to Nation Driver Registry related to DUI. AZ has set 8/3/2015 as deadline to clear issue and avoid action in Arizona. Minnesota needs 2+weeks to process and clear; AZ deadline will have passed. Phone calls with both Arizona and Minnesota representatives have provided no assistance, or guidance. How valid is this Minnesota demand, from out-of-nowhere? How can I extend the AZ deadline? How can I avoid $680 payment?
You will have to satisfy all MN requirements before they will clear your status since you held a MN license at the time...
