How does someone go about a plea bargain to get probation instead of jail time?
I got a DUI in mn but I'm from Iowa and cannot afford defense. I just want to know the steps and how.
You will need to appear in court on the date specifice in MN and apply for court-appointed counsel.
Can a person be charged with dwi without a breath test?
I was charged with a dwi and in my trial my breath test was dismissed but my case went on and was found guilty of dwi.
Yes. A DWI can be based on a blood alcohol content from a breath, blood or urine test or it may be based on the...
What will I need to do to reinstate my license after a 3rd degree DWI?
I haven't had a license for 10 years due mainly to not having the extra income to spend on the fee. Am I going to be required to get an interlock? I did alcohol monitoring while on 30 day house arrest and had no failures. I've completed my probation and have not had any arrests since that time.
You will likely have to go on the ignition interlock depending on the length of your revocation (check your notice)....
How likely MN prosecutor will charge a dui if no dui citation issued and no arrest?
It was a dark, very rainy nite and I hit a road sign with my car, no witnesses, no injuries. My front bumper & plate were, unbeknownst to me, left at the scene- I didn't realize how badly I had hit the sign, happened very fast. I headed home, not sure what to do but freaked about damage to my car. I had a few very strong drinks at home and, about 1/2 hour later, police were knocking at my door. Stupidly, I submitted to field tests in my driveway, including, after they'd been there for 20-30 minutes, blowing .17 (!?!) on a pbt. But- these tests are notoriously unreliable, and, inadmissible in MN as evidence of intoxication. I was issued a citation for Leaving the Scene, but NOT for DUI. I was not arrested, neither of my cars was impounded and my license was not taken. Evidence against me would seem to be observations of officers, the fact of the accident itself, and my admission that I'd been drinking- but only 2 beers w/ lunch, 6 hours earlier. No blood test, no urine test, no "real" breathalyzer test. How likely is it the Mpls prosecutor will file dui charges? If he does, do you think (s)he might let me plea down? Thanks.
It seems unlikely that a die charge would be forthcoming because no chemical test was done at the station or hospital....
Will I be charged with a second dwi, my first was just over 10years ago
Cops did not see me drive too farm, was not near truck or have the keys in my posention,apon arival I took 7 shots of jagermister. Cops came with in 10min and made me do all the tests. I was not buzzed or drunk when I drove and I blew a .14. Could this be residual alcohol of the mouth and throat causing it too be so high?
If you really consumed that much alcohol after driving you might have a really good defense. Did you tell the cops...
How do I fix a nonexistent dui?
11 years ago I got a second dui within 5 years of the first one, and my state thinks I got a third one at the same time I was in court for the second one, and they refuse to fix it.
Your question is somewhat unclear. If you are truely saying there is a conviction on your record for DWI that is 11...
Can a prosecutor use past at arrests against me in my DWI case?
I have a DWI from 2006, and 2007. The 2007 one the charges were never filed. I barely blew a .8. Since then I've got a clean record, not even a parking ticket. Two nights ago I got another DWI. They are counting it as my third even though the one from 2006 was over ten years and the other one, charges were never filed. Mind you the first two were in another state. They took my car and threatening to revoke it. Of course no liscense. I've decided to stop drinking and attend AA again. I had quit drinking for several years. Does it seem right that they would consider this my third? Are they going to consider the one were charges weren't filed as the second? Why are they considering one that's over ten years old? No was hurt, nor was there physical damage - no accident - thank god. I did however blow a .2. Is there any hope for me? Any advice appreciated. I know I messed up.
Minnesota will look 10 years back to use any dwi charges against you. It sounds like you would only have one prior in...
