my Nephew was driving my van without a liceance (unknown to me) and got his 3rd DWI my van was impounded and told to be forfeited, its been two days and the arresting officer still has not gotten back to me on how to get van back.

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?

Can I get off SUPERVISED DWI probation early?
I got a 3rd degree DWI in Wright County (BAC was .23) and was sentenced to 30 days on an at home alcohol monitor and 2 years probation with 355 days stayed over my head. This is my first offense. I had my probation transferred to my home county (Anoka). I'm on random testing, must attend counseling sessions, and am not allowed to be in possession of alcohol. I'm just wondering if I complete my counseling, pay off my fines, do 100% perfect on the at home monitor, and have perfect UA's when I'm on random testing, if Anoka County will let me off of supervised probation early. (I understand I'd still be on probation for two years if I have a same or similar..) Just wondering if certain terms of probation can be removed If I show that I'm doing well! Thanks!
Of course, hypothetically that is possible. Your reasons for such a request need to be known: Reasons that exist close...

From Minnesota. I have interlock, but off probation. I blew a .02 the morning after drinking. I received a letter from the state. They are saying I have to go back to treatment and be on interlock another 3 years. They are asking for a letter explanation.

I am being charged with statue 152.025.(a)(1). With reference to:152.025.1(a). How is this a felony?
I sold 28 grams to a CI and after not wanting to be a CI in lieu of my charges being dismissed they charged me with this. In MN statue it states it's just a misdemeanor. Just wondering how they got a felony charge?
Yes. It's the sale that makes it a felony.
