I have been on unsupervised probation for 9 months and never seen or heard from a probation officer. I live about 3 hrs from the county where my probation was issued. If I go on vacation out of the U.S. and have a few drinks and come back do they use random etg test for unsupervised probation as I have read that alcohol can tested for up to 100 hrs after your last drink
It depends on the county you have probation in as to whether they use Etg testing. Etg testing does go back in time...

I received a DWI on August 4, 2011 in Fargo, ND. I live in MN and have a MN driver's license. I was originally told that I could get a work permit on October 24, but when I went there today to inquire about that, I was told to call the MN DVS. I did that and the gentleman I spoke to told me I could not get a work permit or my license back for six months. However, he told me that if I lived in ND and had a ND driver's license that I could get a work permit. My BAC was .19. How do I go about obtaining a permit so that I may drive to and from work? Thank-You! Andrew Olson
You should contact a ND attorney. This issue has more than likely come up before. They should have the experience to...
Was convicted of DUI solely on the result since field tests were refused by me. First test was .081 and immediate second test was .086. Should I fight to get this overturned due the errors in the code with that machine?
Thank you for the post. You indicate that you were convicted. I assume that means you already have had a trial or...
Refused breathalyzer saying I didn't have enough time to talk to lawyer. Contestable? Conflict of interest with Public Def.?
Arrested for a 3rd DUI, on probation, released into DUI court. After failing the roadside sobriety test, I refused the roadside breathalyzer saying I wanted to talk to an attorney first. At the police station I was read my rights, asked, "what constitutes a reasonable amount of time" and was told by the officer they would let me know when it was close(never did). Called a lawyer who said they'd call back. Waited about 20 minutes then called another number. Talked to this half asleep attorney for about 15 minutes not realizing it was a phonebook for 150miles away. I asked to call another, was told no my time was up. I refused saying I wouldn't take it until I could consult another attorney. Is contesting worth a shot? Should I worry since my public def. works closely with DUI court team?
You are facing a criminal charge based on these facts, so I would say that yes it is worth contesting (as would be any...
I got a DUI and also do to medical issues which i also had taken epi-pen earlier before the arrest, dont they have medical laws that need to be follow? For several hours I had told them and they did nothing. Was this right or did they do wrong?

What can I do and do I have a case to go after the police?
Unfortunately this happens quirt a but in MN. I suggest you contact an experienced DWI attorney and they will guide...
I was charged with a 3rd degree DWI - (Blew .20) What are penalties for a 1st time offender realistically? (Hennepin County)
Car was impounded and plates were removed before I picked it up the next day. I did not have to go to jail that night. Blew .20. Trying to figure out what I will have to do when court comes. I don't have a ton of money and have talked to a few lawyers. Everyone says I just need a public defender. I am trying to possibly get it reduced to a misdemeanor vs. gross. Any private lawyers ever accept payment plans? Also, should I get a chemical assessment now or wait for it to be ordered? Thank you for your time!
There are many private attorneys that accept payment plans and most will take payment by credit card as well. If you...
