How likely will I get 1 year restriction no alcohol at all for first time DWI.
Got a first time DWI, blew .14. No one was hurt and nothing was damaged. No prior offenses. Did get a speeding ticket with it.

What constitutes coercion in mn dui breath test?
A high blood sugar diabetic and tested.13 after one drink almost 4 hours later on breath test.I asked for blood test but was denied. Cop knew of my prior felony dui. But said if I took and failed breath test I would only be held 12 hours not seven years, could get my truck back after 12 hours not forfeited, and license back in 30 days not six years. Isn't that coercion? Also told me to pee my pants instead of letting me use bathroom, if I chose to contact an attorney.
