For my first offense MIP review what should I be looking at if I have received another MIP while on non reporting probation?
I received my first MIP a year ago but six months after being on non reporting I was MIP'd again. When i went to court for the 2nd one it did not come up because I was on the HYTA program. I went to court paid $300 and that was end of story .. nothing extra.. community service etc. Now my 1 year review is coming up for my first offense. Whats in store? Also the second offense was in a different city.
Probably nothing too severe. Just be honest.
If everyone in the car was drinking and over 21 would they all be arested or only the driver? Would the other people be alowed to drive home if they were not drunk? Is it ok to drink alcohol in a car if your not driving? under MI laws.
The passengers have not done anything wrong legally, under the facts provided. If the driver was suspected of DUI he...
I got my license suspended at age 18 from 2 DUIs both were under the legal limit but I was under age so I got the DUIs .. Since then I have gotten 3 driving on suspended (in the past 9 years) I moved to california a year and a half ago and cleaned up my life and now need my license to transport my daughter to and from school so I need to start the process. I also have a pending case that I never went to court for (driving on suspended) . I am trying to fill out the packet that the Secretary of State provides to apply to get my license back and it's asking for specific dates of my criminal history (I do not know specific dates) so I may need a criminal docate. Where do I even start?
Step one: order your 7-year driving record from the Michigan Sec of State (costs about $8). Step two: after you get...
I was arrested for an OWI 1st and I blew a .20 at the scene. I told the officers I had a prescription for Librium (benzo), when asked if I had taken any that day I said yes (stupid) because I was nervous and figured it was legal and I could blame impairment on that. Well truth is k hadn't taken any in at least 48 hours because I know the dangers of mixing the two. I was taken to the hospital and my blood was drawn. I received the results and as expected it showed only alcohol. Do they only list what drugs you are positive for or should it have said drugs that I didn't test positive for? I'm hoping they did test for benzo's so they don't think I was mixing the two. Thanks!
The Michigan State Police do separate tests for alcohol and drugs. The results come in two different report. They may...
I got pulled over last night I passed all the test they have you do when they try to make sure your not drunk but I refused to do the breathalyzer so they took me in.

Im in school I work and I was working towards getting my license back I actually only have a couple more tickets in Detroit to pay and ill have my license back. but they wrote me a ticket for DUI and Driving on suspended license I go to court Wednesday.
Anything is possible but a lawyer cannot properly assess your options based upon this limited version of the events....
I was driving several hours after drinking but was lost because I was out of state. I fell asleep at the wheel and totaled my car. No other people or cars were involved. I lost my driving privileges in Ohio but the Ohio Patrol said to contact a MI attorney to verify if I still had driving privileges in MI.
michigan and ohio sometime share information on driving records. what you should do is contact the secretary of state...
