If the prosecutor agrees, can I get my license back after losing it for refusing to take a breath test? It was my first refusal
I refused to take a breath test. I was given a piece of paper by the secretary of state but I did not send it in in time to get a hearing on my refusal. My court appointed attorney did a great job on my criminal charges, but was appointed late and was unable to warn me about contesting the refusal until it was to late. The court will not appoint me a attorney to represent me on my refusal and I do not have much money. The prosecutor agreed to stipulate, after speaking with the arresting officer, to allow me to have restricted driving privileges due to it being my first refusal. She suggested I hire an attorney. First, is this even possible? Can the prosecutor stipulate to allow me to have privileges in this situation? Second, is this something I can do myself?
Eventually you'll be able to get your license back. Call DMV and ask them when you're eligible or speak with a local...
When will my license be suspended for OWI? Plea or sentencing?
I pled guilty in February to OWI 1st but I am not being sentenced until April. I have heard that upon pleading guilty in Feb that the SOS should have sent me a letter, but I also heard that my license will be suspended at sentencing. As of now, I have not received anything from the SOS. Can anyone clarify this for me? Thank you
I just answered that question. Unless your are participating i the court's sobriety court program, your license...
I am being charged with felony dui casuing serious bodily injury. Is my public defender helping me or the prosecuter?
A guy that was riding in the vehicle with me in the backseat got a t-12 chance fracture in his back. The accident was on 10/18/2014 and i did a pbt and blew a .013. The "victim" is now in the marines, he left for bootcamp in Feb. 2015. As far as i know he doesnt want anything to happen to me hes not mad he just wants to move on from it. The prosecutor has charged me with dui ser bod inj and my case was started in Nov. I feel i have a good shot at beating this case considering the circumstances and my public defender seems to think i dont. Prosecutor keeps delaying trial because the victim is in bootcamp and cannot testify. I was told by my public defender the prosecutor would move foward w/o the victim and now he wants to wait. I dont know what to do.
Ironically, the prosecutor is helping, as delaying your case is a good thing. The reality is that this is too serious...
DUI Bond Condition
I was given bond conditions by the judge for DUI and told to go to probation office. i filled out some paperwork while there, they set up my alcohol assessment next month, gave me a copy of my bond conditions and was told to leave. my bond condtions are things like "alcohol testing ___ per week" and "AA ___ per week" but they were not filled out by anyone!. i tried calling probation dept 2 weeks ago and they never returned my call. right after i called probation dept i called my lawyer and he said that they will likely fill it in at my alcohol assessment and not to worry. but he didnt sound 100% sure! im very scared i might be violating my bond conditions. i probably would have known by now right?? thank you for your time
Your attorney may be correct, but I would continue to call the probation department and inquire as to whether you were...
What drugs does a DUI kit test for?
I was arrested for an OWI 1st and I blew a .20 at the scene. I told the officers I had a prescription for Librium (benzo), when asked if I had taken any that day I said yes (stupid) because I was nervous and figured it was legal and I could blame impairment on that. Well truth is k hadn't taken any in at least 48 hours because I know the dangers of mixing the two. I was taken to the hospital and my blood was drawn. I received the results and as expected it showed only alcohol. Do they only list what drugs you are positive for or should it have said drugs that I didn't test positive for? I'm hoping they did test for benzo's so they don't think I was mixing the two. Thanks!
The Michigan State Police do separate tests for alcohol and drugs. The results come in two different report. They may...
Meth possession - Eaton County
I was driving home Saturday night and got pulled over for a headlight out. The officer claimed he smelled marijuana and asked for a search of the car. I said don't you need a warrant and he said he had probable cause. He searched my car and found 8 grams of meth in my trunk. I said it wasn't mine and that I purchased the car from someone a few days before. I was arrested and he continued to search my car and found a marijuana roach. While I was in the back of the police car I pooped my pants and it smelled.
You need a good trial attorney as Eaton County is extremely tough to deal with. Call someone ASAP and make no...
Presentence Investigation / OWI
How honest should one be with the probation officer about a problem with alcohol? I admit I do have a problem and want to be sober for the rest of my life but I don't know how much of a problem I should admit to having, or if I should just be 100% honest. Also how likely will I be to be offered OWVI (impaired vs drunk driving) in Eaton County, MI ? I blew a .19 at the police station.
Eaton County is notoriously tough, especially on drunk driving. It's getting worse because the policy of the prosecutor...
