What can I do? What are my rights?
I am being charged with an OWI 2nd offense in 9 years. I retained an attorney. He is dead set on taking it to trial. I had my final pretrial conference with the district attorney this past Friday. Prior to going in I asked my attorney if we could settle or come to a deal. He said they would not make a deal with an OWI case. I sat through each other defendants homework all offer deals on their case. I do not want to take it to trial. One of my Witnesses is a cancer patient who had her tongue removed and now speaks with a voice box and I do not want to put her through that. When I called the District Attorney's office to see if a deal was offered that I was not aware of them for me they will not speak to me because I have an attorney. But I feel that he declined an offer without my knowledge. My trial is set for April 18th which is less than a week away.
You could try hiring a different attorney, and have that attorney negotiate an offer. You're taking action a bit late...
Was this legal?
I failed a drug test upon entry to jail on a OWI testing positive for THC, the police department then disclosed to my employeer that I had failed the drug test which I was subsequently fired for...was it legal for the police department to disclose that information to my employer?
Were you fired for the positive drug test, or because your work release privileges were revoked because of the drug...
How can I get my underage drinking ticket dropped or substantially lowered?
This is my first offense, I was walking home with a couple friends and one friend walking significantly ahead of me handed a sealed water bottle with alcohol over to his other friend, just as two cops on bicycles pulled up. I had nothing on me and was extremely cooperative, I was not suspicious at all yet they breathalyzed me. i blew a .063. I have a mandatory court appearance in a few days, if anyone could give me some advice on how to get this dropped or lowered please let me know. also, is there a way that I can avoid having my license suspended? I wasn't anywhere near a car but I don't want to take a chance. Thanks
Plead Not Guilty and set a meeting with the prosecutor. Consult with an experienced attorney in your area.
I got a Underage Drinking citation in Wisconsin, and i'm an Minnesotan. Where would this show up on a backround check?
I have done research, and basically, since the Underage Alchohol Violation event got cited in Wisconsin, i've found that this infraction could come up in my driving record. But which? I have a Minnesota drivers license, therefore, will it come up in my Minesota driving record? Or will it only come up in Wisconsin? Also, on a side note, when I got this citation the Wisconsin police officer said it was a misdemenor. But after doing my research, and looking at the "notice of Citation", it clearly says citation. I was drinking in the dorms. Is there a law that makes drinking in the dorms a misdemenor? Or was the police just trying to intimidate me?
There is no legal definition of "background check". What anyone checking finds totally depends upon how deeply they dig....
Can I get my drinking ticket dropped if I never had contact with the police.?
I was in a dorm room and one of my buddies just made his first mixed drink. I wasn't drinking at that night. The RA's knocked on the door and I let them in thinking nothing of it. They saw the bottle and asked to see our ID's. I left the room and didn't come back. I wasn't told to stop or anything. The next day I got a drinking ticket emailed to me. What can I do about it?
The fact that you did not have direct contact with the police makes no difference. Obviously, they obtained your...
Can you be released from custody on an alchohol related crime while highly intoxicated without someone to sighn for you?
I was booked into jail for a disorderly conduct while highly intoxicated, they booked me in and released me less than 3 hours later. they took a breathalizer prior to my release. Less then one hour later I was picked up on a owi and bail jumping charge. I know in other states to be released from custody while under te influence someone ove 18 and sober must sign for you to be released.
It sounds like standard procedures were used to release you the first time and then you went and made another mistake....
Can I get my drinking charges dismissed?
My friend and I were walking on the sidewalk and are both underage and had been previously drinking. The police stopped us because my friend had an open container that I didn't know about. I tried to keep walking and they made me come back also to ask me questions. They asked me if I had been drinking and I said that I hadn't been, which was a lie. I then refused to take a breathalyzer test. They then told me take off my backpack that I was wearing and open it up which happened to have a few unopened beer cans in it. I told them that they didn't have the right to search my backpack but they did anyways. I got charged with an underage drinking violation and a underage possession of alcohol violation. Did the police have the right to search me and proceed the way they did?
If a proper defense motion is filed, it is the court's decision whether to exclude evidence that was found in your...
