DWI hearing cancelled?
Daughter's father failed to appear at all previous hearings for his DWI. Today I see the court received his Chemical Dependency Eval Report his future court appearance is cancelled. What could be a possible reason as far as I know, he has no valid license. I don't want her in a car with him if he's not licensed or has no insurance.
There are many reasons for the activity you're seeing on the court website, including the possibility that the website...
Will the police do anything if I call about a habitually drunk driver?
My father-in-law (who is a prick and an alcoholic) has a problem with driving drunk. He's going to kill someone one of these days. I have pulled out vodka containers 1/4 full out of his Tahoe before after he just got home from work. He has smashed his SUV into the house and damaged both. He called the police on himself one time to go to detox and registered a .34 on a breathalizer. Problem is, he continues this habit of drinking and driving. Even a liquor store employee told him once "you shouldn't be driving when you're drunk". Question is, if I notify the local police (just up the road) about this, will they keep an eye on his vehicle and pull him over for any sort of infraction just to deter the behavior? Will they even do anything?
If you call in and provide your identity and specific information about a particular incident in progress then my guess...

I pled guilty to gross misdemeanor DWI in MN and completed all but 1 probation condition resulting in a warrant. How to resolve?
I was arrested in October 2012, with court sentencing in May 2013 that stipulated: 10 days of STS (community service) in lieu of both jail time (180 days) and a fine ($375); 2 years of probation free of any criminal trouble including basic traffic violations; suspension of driver's license for one year. I successfully abided by all but the STS, completing only a partial amount. A warrant was placed for my arrest yet I no longer reside in MN. I'd like to both resolve this, and get a license in WI. How is this possible?
Contact an attorney in MN to assist you with the warrant and the STS conditions. Better to take care of it now and be...
Will it go on my permanent record and can/ will I be able to fight it?
I'm 18, this weekend I was camping and we got a noise citation, along with that there was alcohol on the camp site and we got another citation for that. I was not drinking, and because others were I was required to take a breathalyzer which i blew a 0 (obviously) so will this citation given to me by a camp ranger go on my record and can I fight it in court seeing as though the camp site wasn't under my name and I wasn't drinking?
You are permitted to fight any allegation against you whether it is an infraction or a criminal ticket. You should...
