Is ptsd not considered a defense in a dui?
I had a domestic 7 months ago. For 3 weeks after I had normal ptsd "like symptoms" [i.e. nightmares, anxiety, etc.] But then they went away and I haven't had any trouble since. Well 4 days ago, five hours after a tough session with my therapist I took his advice and socialized with friends for dinner, margaritas and watched the game. I felt fine but I made the foolish mistake of going to my friends apartment (the same apt. complex Where I lived during the domestic) thinking I had overcome my fear. WRONG. Long story short, I was having flashbacks while walking in, I could hear my ex and I fighting in my head and blacked out. Next thing I know, I "snapped into it" on the side of the highway, in my car, reaching for my registration, with a cop asking me if I knew where I was. I had no clue. I contacted my therapist the next day, saw him the day after, he agrees the ptsd got out of hand, the two drinks i had, shouldn't have had me blackout and I now realize this is a serious problem. I wont make the excuse of mental health for my dui, but could it help lessen my sentence if my therapist agrees to speak in court of my condition?
This is not a civil rights question. A diagnosed mental illness is not by itself a defense to any offense, especially a...
Can you wear a scram bracelet in place of jail time for a dui?
I made the stupid and foolish mistake of driving home after dinner and margaritas with friends last night. I got pulled over. I also had an owi 3 years ago. So I'm beating myself up for this especially because I'm in a ugly custody battle for my baby after a terrible domestic and a GAL and CPS are involved. I have just been told 5 days is the minimum jail time for 2nd offenses. I'm a stay at home mom. Does Brown county allow a scram bracelet in place for jail time? Is probation a possibility? I'm devastated I just want to start my life over with my son and I feel I just ruined it for us...can anyone help?
Scram bracelets are used for pretrial monitoring, not in the place of jail. Probation is a possibility, but it will...
What's my best option after a dui during a custody battle?
I feel so stupid and helpless. I had a terrible domestic 7 months ago and my custody battle has been a mess. I started therapy again a few weeks ago to deal with the stress and everything was going well until yesterday I had to relive every moment, specify every detail, and emotion I had during the fight to the therapist. The therapist just like my family have all urged me to continue having a social life after the baby and move on in life. Last evening, I went to a restaurant with friends and I had two margaritas and watched the game. Long story short I got pulled over on my way home. I'm freaking out I'm fighting for my son from a narcissistic, drug dealing ex who isn't treating my son right and doing illegal things in my sons presence and I go and foolishly do something this stupid. I already have cps and a GAL involved because of my ex's nonsense. How bad is this offense with my child involved? I'm devastated I don't want to lose my son over dinner and 2 drinks.
It certainly doesn't help your case, but at the same time, no one can say it is a deal buster. I find that "...
1st OWI (Traffic Forfeiture) in Wisconsin
I have a 1st OWI case (Case Type: Traffic Forfeiture) that I am currently fighting in Wisconsin. If my employer asks if I have any pending charges (besides minor traffic violation), do I have to answer yes? Can I answer no? I am asking since my minor violations are showing as Traffic Forfeiture as well. Does that mean my 1st OWI is also considered a minor traffic violation?
Even though it is not criminal in WI, an unenhanced first offense OWI is a major traffic violation.
What can I do about owi , were I was in car accident and charged with owi, I don't remember anything after accident .
was in accident and don't remember anything after for at least a full day, was knocked out! The charge is were officer said he thought I was intoxicated, I am a veteran on disabilty

Can I be charged with owi when my test was .029?

I was convinced of a dwi in Arkansas but have a Wisconsin license. Will I lose my license in Wisconsin before my trial in AR?
I was charged with a DWI in AR on 10/28. My license gets suspended by AR state on 11/27. They have ordered me to get a interlock on my car to drive in Arkansas. I am pleading not guilty and my trial is on 12/19. Will my Wisconsin license be suspended before the trial? If so, do I need a Wisconsin lawyer as well as a AR lawyer so the Wisconsin lawyer can help get me an occupational license? I already have an AR lawyer who is helping me fight all charges as he believes my car was approached unconstitutionally. I just don't understand how I'll be effected in Wisconsin and when the license suspension will take place.
You'll be notified by the WI DOT if and when they take action against your privilege to operate here. There is no way...
