Should I get an attorney to fight my OWI???
I was fishing at a dam about 2hours away from my home and planned on staying the night when the DNR told me I had to leave the premises. I had already been drinking all day and when they asked me to leave I did as they wished but then not even 5 miles down the road was pulled over and arrested for OWI. I didn't think it was right that the DNR asked me to leave when they knew I had been drinking. Should I fight this??
yes

Can I get my sentence reduced for an OWI if the arresting officer illegally signed away my rights?
I was recently arrested and charged with an OWI. BAC .17 at the time of the test. However, when I was detained, the arresting officer signed his initials in place of mine on the back of the temporary permit issued. The statements in which I should have signed my initials would have confirmed I was fully aware of my rights to refuse the test, etc. This can't be legal.
It is common practice for a police officer to initial the paragraphs he or she reads to a person from the Advice of...
What is going to happen at my sentencing if I missed 2 ptbs scheduled time frames on my interlock on my car?
For my bond for owi I had to get a interlock put on my car and have to test everyday from 6am to 7am and 10pm to 11pm. With also taking random drug and etg tests. One morning I got up to call and see if I had to go test and fell back to sleep and forgot to go do my ptb test in the car. Then tonight I had a softball game, I got knocked out towards the end of the game and they wouldn't let me get up and kept checking on my to make sure I didn't have a concussion so I missed my pbt time by 20 minutes. I haven't failed any tests on the interlock or missed and rolling retests. What's going to happen when I go to my sentencing in a week? I don't want them to think I'm not taking the seriously. I really am just things happened. Is there a certain about of violations?
