I received a Mip for alcohol last Friday night but did not go to jail or take a Breathalyzer. Will I receive probation?
I was walking on campus with some friend when we saw a cop turn around. Although we had nothing on us my friends decided to run. I ran with them after realizing they did. We ran before the cops had their lights on or told us to stop but they did find us all in the weeds. Did not get charged with evasion. After denying I drank the whole time the cop told me I had to take a test where I follow his finger while he shines a flashlight in my eye. I took it and he tells me he knows I drank I told him ok I had a 2 beers and he gave me a MIP. It was 2:20 am.
If its your first MIP, you are eligible for statutory diversion. To protect your interests, you should plead "not...
Was driving home after having a couple of beers (felt perfectly fine to drive) at no point did I feel drunk or even get a head change.. Had an incident where I had to pull over to the side of the road..never expecting to end up getting stuck..called my insurance company to send a tow truck over and drop off my car at my house..and as I was waiting police showed up on the scene (I wasn't in my car)....questioning led to sobriety field test (did good) then blew a BAC of .11 and arrested me on the spot...now got charged with traffic crash and OWI...I feel like that wasn't right...can I fight that for a lesser charge or maybe get all charges dropped?..I need some advise I mean I was never pulled over or was really in an accident!!
Sounds like you need a good criminal defense attorney.
How can my son straighten out being charged with leaving scene and wreckless driver when dad was the one that went into ditch?
Ex husband has no license due to DWI's. He went into a ditch and left his truck. It was impounded. Went to pick it up and when asked who was driving, he pointed the finger at son and said he was. Son was taken aside and made up a story because he doesn't want his dad to go to jail. Son is realizing now that he may lose his DL. How can my son tell the court that he lied for his dad without getting into deeper water? My son wants his dad to get some help with his drinking, but dad gets mad at son when it get brought up. Dad has a violent history-shot and killed 2 of my 3 horses 20 years back because he was mad.
You did not mention your son's age. If your son is 18 or over he needs to consult with an experienced criminal defense...
My roommate was recently charged with her second DUI. Her sentence is 45 days w/ no license, then restricted w/ interlocker, and sobriety court w/ 2 years probation. Because of her probation, I am not allowed to have alcohol where I pay to live, I can't have a fire where alcohol is involved. I feel like the law is infringing on my rights even though I've done nothing wrong. I've heard several opinions, some say i can have it in my room (why bother?), others say that common area is fine as long as there is nothing in her room because that is the only area she controls. I just want to know if the law is overstepping and if I can argue for my rights. I'm 24 years old and according to the law, can't have a beer with my dinner at the dining room table.
It does not impact you whatsoever. You have no court order against you regarding alcohol or anything else. Your...
