Arrested in my front yard for being drunk and tearing stuff up with my truck- thought it was my private property - two felonies
A year ago I got really drunk at my house jumped into my truck, in my private drive way,and tore up the lovely yard that the wife likes so much and pushed over my storage shed. Mind you no one was at the house at the time but I was arrested and charged with agrivated DUI , criminal mischief, criminal endangerment. I did all this damage then turned my truck off and waited in my yard for about 2 minutes until the police showed up. My attorney , which my wife use to work for, wasn't much help- got a plea agreement that cancelled the DUI but kept the other two which are felonies. Do you think this was handled properly? I know these small towns make up their own rules as in my case- wife and father-in-law, which I live right across the street from,influenced the police- cant be right?
Attorneys will not second guess other attorneys after the fact because they are in a better position to know your case...

Got an underage DUI for blowing a .074 (field test) and then blowing a .05 (after arrest). What are my chances of a deferral?
I have an otherwise clean record except for a fail to yield that i had taken care of about two years ago. I am a 19 year old female and very active in the community. I am also a college student with a 3.82 GPA. What are my chances of getting Deferred Imposition of Sentence? I've spent a lot of time building the image that I want to make for myself and would like to not have this mistake end up on my record. Also, what other pleas would help this not affect my insurance? as the spike in insurance and it being on my record forever are my biggest concerns.
Good question. I am not licensed in Montana, so my answer is to rely upon the answer of an experienced DUI attorney...
I am 19 years old and the other night I got an underage DUI, I blew a .05 and underage only allows for a .02.
There are a few things about my case that I am curious about: this is my first offense, and I didn't blow extremely high, could I get this mistake deferred and dismissed so it doesn't stay on my record? I passed the other sobriety tests, but blew numbers. Also, on my ticket it lists my BAC level in three places and only one is correct. The other two places say I blew a .5 (50%) do you think that maybe I could get the case thrown out for inconsistencies? And finally, I had parked on the street side of the place I was going to stay for the night AND turned off my car before the officer turned on his lights and pulled me over for no light on my license plate. Is that legal?
I am not licensed in Montana, but I think I can tell you your case will not be thrown out because the BAC is reported...
Got in trouble for a fake ID at a bar. The ID had my name and photo on it. I have a clean record. Wondering what to expect.
College student in trouble for having a fake ID. No MIP charge. Again nothing on my record. Im pretty terrified and I cannot afford a lawyer. I figured it was best to just plead guilty because I have no wiggle room (the cops took my fake ID). Wondering what I should expect as punishment, and if I have to pay the fine upfront. Thanks a bunch
I'm not from your state, but generally they just take the ID and be done with it. I doubt they would use their...
Should my rights have been read in this DUI arrest?
I was pulled over for "having my lights off". After "failing' a field sobriety test was told to blow. I asked to wait until we got to the station. I was put in handcuffs, and my rights where never read.
Contrary to what you see on TV, Miranda applies to custodial interrogations. If they did not interrogate you, no need...
