How could I figure out what I did the night i was issued 2 citations for drinking, without talking to the officer?
I was walking home from the bar, drunk and underage (19), on the side of the road with 5-6 other kids. A police officer pulls up and everyone runs except for me and, from my recollection, I approach the officer. I have a fake ID and i tell the officer this because its on top of my real ID. So after patting me down, me he puts me in the back of the car and takes me back to my campus. I was issued 2 "Wisconsin Citation and Complaint (Non-Traffic)" citations, one was for "Obstructing an Officer" 9.941.37(2) ($767.50) and the other is "Underage Drinking (consume)" ($452.50). I was then released. I am unsure why I obtained the "Obstructing" citation, due to the alcohol I can't recall doing anything that warrants that charge. On both citations it shows a non-mandatory court date, does this signal that the "obstructing an officer" citation is not a misdemeanor?
It means that it is not a misdemeanor. You can plead not guilty and ask for a copy of the police report. Having a...
What is the post judgement interest rate for a DUI?
I was convicted of DUI in 2007 and had a judgement of $1366.50 as a fine. I was charged interest at $4.80 (4.25%apr)a month for 12 months, but have subsequently been charged $13.67 (12%apr) a month for about 5.5 years. I obviously forgot about the fine but I need to pay it off. Am I being charged the correct interest? If not, how can I rectify this? It seems as if I am being charged more than the state statute calls for on civil judgements.
I am not licensed in Wisconsin, but in California it is ten percent. I would think it ought to be the same in...
I have a Wisconsin driver's license and I got a DUI in Illinois. It is the third DUI I have gotten in Illinois.
An Illinois lawyer told me I face a one year suspension and a possible revocation of my license in Illinois. How does this affect my Wisconsin DL? If I get convicted what happens to my Wisconsin license.
You will have your Wisconsin DL revoked. Your DL in Wisconsin is the one that IL will revoke or suspend.

I have a Wisconsin license and got an Illinois DUI conviction. I beat the SSS so I should be eligible for a work permit in IL.
What do I need to do to get a permit in Illinois as I work there? I saw the paperwork to get an occupational permit for Wisconsin, I am pretty sure that wont fly in Illinois. I've had another DUI in Illinois that went to a supervision over 8 years ago and two dismissals (recently) as well in Illinois. I would have to get a formal hearing in Illinois for a permit. Correct?
You should consult with an attorney who has experience with traffic laws in Ill.
When will I know what happened?
I was blackout drunk and only remember a vague but of police driving me home while I was trying to walk. I have a memory of breaking a window but due to the fact that there was no blood or tears in my sweatshirt I believe it was a dream which is not uncommon for me to have strange dreams. It's been apart three weeks and I haven't received a citation or anything. I was not arrested or given a ticket so I don't know if I did it or not.
If you are drinking to the point of blackout, get help for your drinking problem. You can check your contact history...
OWI Blood Draw?
What is the Wisconsin Case Law on drawing blood? (Prior to McNeely) Can blood be drawn at a police department by a volunteer paramedic, without the supervision of a licensed Medical Doctor and there are no exigent circumstances? I was physically forced and threatened to give a blood sample and told that I would be charged with battery to an officer, If I didn't comply, because I refused to have my skin penetrated.
Your question is one that is actually asking for a far more detailed answer than is anticipated on this free site. The...
