In minnesota can they take your license for dui on a boat?
my friend was arrested for dwi on a boat and I noticed he was charged with a 3rd degree dwi. he does have another dwi from 2002. I've read that if this is your first offense you will not get your license taken away because it was on a boat. Does his first dwi count for that or will he still lose his license?
Why was he charged with 3rd degree if his prior was in 2002? Did he refuse? test over .20? have a kid under 16 on...
I applied for my permit to carry a pistol. Can a dwi be grounds for a denial?
I accepted a plea for a dwi refusal to a chemical test gross misdemeanor but its not final I'm still waiting to go to court and officially accept it. I'm want to know two things will my probation prohibit me from the use of firearms? and is anything dwi related been known to pose an issue when it comes to obtaining a ccw? Have there been other cases similar to mine and what was the out come? Thank you for your time

He used his nebulizer shotly before being stoped they said his breath test showed .o8 after 2 hours not sure what it was on site he said they did not test him again after 2 hour but as soon as he got to the station. they also tested me to make sure I was ok to drive ant the breatalizer would not work right just after they used it to test him. he was drinking but I did not think he was even close to being drunk
You cite a reasonable explanation that certain legitimate medical compounds may affect one's driving ability. I suggest...
Is it worth fighting in court?
I was in a bad accident with four friends rolling an S10 into a river, I was issued a ticket for minor in consumption that night and failure to use a seatbelt. The officer never asked for ID, just my name, and spelled it wrong on the ticke that was issued to me. I was never on video, or showed any form of ID.
I am uncertain what your question may be. If you wish to know whether the typographical errors on the ticket somehow...
What will my dwi sentencing look like?
I was just arrested for a dwi, second degree. I was also charged with 5th degree controlled substance (is that a felony?). I already have the in home monitoring system rigged to go off every 12 hours, i will have this till at least my next court date in about a month. With no priors and a clean background, what would you think my final sentencing will be on my next court date. Is it possible they drop the substance charge? Am I facing more jail time?
Whether any charges get dismissed or what your possible sentencing might look like depends on a host of factors not the...
Can I be found guilty of DUI if I blew a .06 at the station? Pulled over for improper turn.
Pulled over for improper turn. Blew .06 at station and still charged with DUI. Officer stated I put my foot down during one leg stand. Aside putting foot down twice I performed quite normally on the field sobriety test. Prosecutor offered Careless driving which I declined. Will any prosecutor pursue this to trial? ( or would judge even let it go to trial)? Thanks.
Yes it's possible. Even if you're under .08, the state can still try to prove that you were under the influence. Yes...
When do I get my license plates back after dui dismissal?
I was stopped about a month ago, and the stop led to me getting a 2nd degree dui, but before my second court date, all charges were dismissed. The cop had no probable cause for the stop since why he pulled me over was not illegal. This would have been my third in ten years (09/10). I blew a .100. I haven't had my implied consent hearing yet. I was just wondering if I have to wait until I hear the results of that before I can get new plates on my truck or what? Which I'm assuming I will have to wait and find out what happens at that first, but I wasn't positive. Thank you guys.
The dismissal of your criminal case doesn't necessarily mean that you win the implied consent case. You have to wait...
