Can I get my OWI lessened to reckless driving?
The officer followed me for over a mile, from the outskirts of town, through town, and multiple corners, before pulling me over for crossing the center line on a road the doesn't have a painted, distinguished, line. Also, in our town, there is odd and even parking in the winter time. During that night the vehicles were to park on the side of the road in which I was driving, forcing me over, past the middle of the road. Also, there was snow earlier that week and the roads were covered enough that you couldn't see the blacktop. In this, the officer had also found a small amount of marijuana and a pipe, which he said he could not charge me with because he illegally searched my car. This is my first offence and since the event the county police officers have been driving past my work and home.

Valid DUI defense?
I recently was charged with DUI my first offense. Long story short I wrecked my car and limped it to a nearby parking lot. A local city council member came upon me and blocked me in until the sherif arrived. My question is since I was not in the ditch when anybody got to me is it a viable defense? Also I (thinking I was cooperating) admitted to driving after drinking but was drunk (obviously) when I said it. Does any of this warrant a lawyer or is it my best bet to just take it?

Is there a way to use behavioral health as a defense against an OWI?
I received an OWI 2nd back in August of 2011. I am trying to get it reduced to reckless driving since I've heard that expungement in Wisconsin is rare. (I'm trying to switch to Active Army from National Guard, and can't with two on my record.) I didn't get in severe trouble with the Army for this offense because I went to behavioral health a week prior asking for help with anger management and depression, which led to a drinking problem. I didn't receive the proper help and a week later got the OWI. Is there a way to use this as a defense since I wasn't in a clear state of mind before I even started drinking? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
