Will I get re arrested after my court date?
A couple days ago I got arrested for an OWI, specifically operating with a controlled substance (marijuana). I was on only a 12 hour hold in jail and then I was released. That’s the charge that got me arrested. I also got charged with possession of THC (less than 8 grams), and possession of drug paraphernalia. All together these fines equal up to about $1400. When I got arrested, I was still slightly high and they took me to the hospital to get blood drawn to see how much really was in my system, and that will help the judge in court too when deciding what to do. what I’m concerned about is what exactly they might decide to do? On the papers they say they are all citations. They mentioned about my license possibly being suspended. Is it possible they will make me serve any longer? This is also my first time getting in trouble with the law.
It customary to get citations in the field, which are later followed up with formal criminal charges. Since the...
Need help securing a lawyer for a DUI during an out of state work trip.
My boyfriend was in Wisconsin for work and got a dui. He had a previous one 3 years ago in California. He needs a lawyer but is also not exactly sure what he is being charged. It doesn't look like it's on any of the cites. Any advice?

I got a second OWI with a possession and paraphernalia 2nd as well on my 24th birthday.09(again) Do I have any chance?
I was out on my birthday, the reason I was stopped was I forgot to turn on my headlights. It's so hard to tell the difference in my car, I was completely compliant with the officers, however, they did not find the marijuana ad pipe till we were in the jail as it was hidden in my underwear. Im not a bad person, I actually quit drinking after my first offense, but it had been a while and things were going well so I decided to have some drinks. I was not swerving or driving bad, and I just want a lawyer who is very good to aggressively help me fight this. When he read me the questionnaire to be tested, I originally said no, and then said yes but I didn't understand, is there any chance there? Also he didn't read me my rights until after I was already tested, I dont know the rules, just trying

Can I fight my OWI charge?
Hi I have just recently got an OWI. I was pulled over in front of my house then taken to the hospital to do the field sobriety test. Afterwards they took my blood. Is there any way to fight this seeing as they drove me to hospital because it was too cold outside to do the field sobriety test? Also on my OWI ticket where it states appearance required it is checked no. But I also have a signed paper that says I understand I must appear in court. Could I do anything with this to help my chances?

Is an sr22 required in Wisconsin for a first offense alcohol related revokation
My son recently had his license revoked for 6 months for a PAC violation. This was his first offense. At the WI DOT website it says that a sr22 is not required to get a license back after a first offense. However, when looking up his eligiblity to get an occupational license, the website says that he needs one. Is this just to get the occupational license? If he just waits until the end of the revokation will he not need one?
