What constitutes "undue financial hardship" for the an IID exemption?
I only have one vehicle and recently had an OWI with a refusal. I see there is an exemption to the IID for undue financial hardship. I am trying to figure out what constitutes that as there are no explicit details. Is this up to the judge to decide based on the evidence?
As you surmise, what constitutes undue financial hardship is for the court to decide, but unless you have no...
First time dealing with an underage + public intoxication, need insight and advice.
Saturday night, I left a house party here in Platteville intending to walk back to my dorm room to go to bed. Somehow I got turned around and ended up walking a decent distance away from where I wanted to be going and starting walking back from my new location back towards my dorm. Unfortunately I was walking along side the Business 151 HWY back towards campus. At this point I was stopped by an officer who ended up giving me a ride back to campus. I had alcohol in my backpack that he made me pour out on site and I remember him saying I was going to be getting tickets for public intoxication and underage drinking ( I am 19 ). I haven't received the violations yet, but I am just reaching out for advice on where to go next in my situation. I wasn't belligerent in dealing with the police

I was arrested last night with an owi. I was pulled over because the officer said my head lights were not on but they are auto.
I was wondering if I have a case. They gave me a field soberiety test in a kwik trip parking lot and it was snowing and icy. I failed the test. They then gave me a breathlyzer and blood test. I have not heard the results on either but am sure they are over the legal limits. Do I have a case.
