How likely MN prosecutor will charge a dui if no dui citation issued and no arrest?
It was a dark, very rainy nite and I hit a road sign with my car, no witnesses, no injuries. My front bumper & plate were, unbeknownst to me, left at the scene- I didn't realize how badly I had hit the sign, happened very fast. I headed home, not sure what to do but freaked about damage to my car. I had a few very strong drinks at home and, about 1/2 hour later, police were knocking at my door. Stupidly, I submitted to field tests in my driveway, including, after they'd been there for 20-30 minutes, blowing .17 (!?!) on a pbt. But- these tests are notoriously unreliable, and, inadmissible in MN as evidence of intoxication. I was issued a citation for Leaving the Scene, but NOT for DUI. I was not arrested, neither of my cars was impounded and my license was not taken. Evidence against me would seem to be observations of officers, the fact of the accident itself, and my admission that I'd been drinking- but only 2 beers w/ lunch, 6 hours earlier. No blood test, no urine test, no "real" breathalyzer test. How likely is it the Mpls prosecutor will file dui charges? If he does, do you think (s)he might let me plea down? Thanks.
It seems unlikely that a die charge would be forthcoming because no chemical test was done at the station or hospital....
It has been impounded and they aren't letting me pick it up right now, I was a passenger in the car and I had been drinking so I asked my friend to drive. He hadn't drank in hours and we thought he was good but still blew a .08. What can I expect?
2 possibilities: you get your car released after a day or so or the prosecutor tries to seize your vehicle and forfeit...
My nephew had a DUI in the state of NH 3 years ago, he has moved to live with me in MN since then. His DUI was dropped to a violation by a judge in NH and it does not show on his criminal record, but shows on his driving record. What can be done to take it off driving record?
It is not entirely clear if it can be removed. He should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney in the...
What do I need to do to get my license reinstated?
I was convicted of a DUI last year in Minnesota and lost my license for a year. It is getting to be about the time for the year to be up and I'm wondering what are the steps and requirements I will need to do to get my license back.
Go to your local DMV and they will outline your requirements for reinstatement. Some of those requirements include...
