Would it be possible to get it an underage consumption ticket off my record? Will my license be suspended/insurance go up?
2 years ago, right before college, some friends and I were camping and ended up getting underage consumption tickets. It was my first time drinking, and I talked with a lawyer my dad knows and ended up getting a deal with the prosecutor where I got a stay of adjudication and did 50 hours of community service and one year of probation and its not on my record. This year, I stupidly got in the car with my 21 year old friend who had been drinking, and I had also been drinking, because I didn't want to walk back to my dorm alone. We got pulled over, and the officer did a breathalyzer but never gave me a ticket or anything. I got one in the mail 3 weeks later, charging me with underage consumption and it is a misdemeanor. Could I get it off my record even though its my second ticket?
It's possible, although there are no guarantees. For the best possible outcome, you should consult with an attorney in...
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...
I had a test fail on an ingnition interlock. I then called the installer he informed to keep testing until I passed.
I went back to my car the time had lapsed & the device said test canceled. In that time Maybe 10 minutes had passed. I turned off the ignition then turned it back on & passed. What are going to be the consequences as far as my driving privileges go? Should I contact DMV about a false positive test?
Generally a failed Interlock device test means that the result will be recorded and MN DVS notified.
I executed my sentence for 1st dwi. Have time served so only have to do 34 days. What happens if i miss my turn in date?
Will i get a longer sentence? I wasnt givin enough time to get my affairs in order and need another month.
Assuming this is a misdemeanor, then the max you can get is 90 days. Do you have credit for 26 days served? Is it a...
