When do you have to wear a SCRAM bracelet during probation?
I was charged with 1st offense DUI with a minor in the vehicle. I have one year probation with 15 days jail. I am almost done serving my time and am wondering what to expect during my probation. I have heard that a SCRAM bracelet is required in some cases, usually repeat offenders. My P.O. was not sure if I would be required to wear one in my case. I was just wondering if any Lawyers have been through a case like mine and if the SCRAM bracelet was required.
At the risk of sounding glib: A SCRAM bracelet is required as long as your PO says it is. Your PO is in charge of the...
First offense DUI w/minor 12 months probation and 15-20 days jail?
I was pulled over in Wisconsin first offense DUI with a minor in the vehicle. I was told I could get up to 6 months jail time with Huber privleges so that I can keep my job. The state's initial offer was 12 months probation and 15-20 days County Jail. Does that mean I won't get Huber release? Sounds like I will have the option of doing a short amount of full time jail OR long jail with Huber release? What are my chances of getting Huber privleges with the 20 days? I don't have any vacation time left and could lose my job over all this. I am so confused. I am in counseling and will have character reference letters. I would rather have more probation time and no jail. Do they ever do that?
You should be able to get huber privileges on that 15-20 day conditional jail sentence (a sentence served as a...
Is it wise to get a court appointed atty.for a 1st time DUI? I cannot afford an expensive lawyer but NEED driving privileges,etc
It is imperative that for both financial & job security reasons that I do NOT miss work. I've received a notice of intent to suspend my license. I absolutely cannot afford an expensive atty. & have been told the court would appt. one for me. Is this wise??

Can I still submit a Notice To Suspend License form (to try to NOT have it suspended) after the 10day filing period has passed?
I unfortunately received a Notice To Suspend form in the mail after my arrest for 1st time OUI. It is 100% IMPERATIVE that I be able to drive to maintain my job as well as for dire financial reasons. Does submitting this form mean that I am automatically claiming "Not Guilty" or just that I wish to ask NOT to have my license suspended? Please inform! Thank you .
You can try, sometimes DOT won't notice that a deadline has been missed by a day or so. Note that it is ten business...
Is it common to request blood test chain of custody proof before pleading
I would like verification that blood test results are truely mine but all you get is a piece of paper, no evidence of chain of custody, training records or equipment calibration and maintenance.
No, it is not very common. The chain of custody usually includes the law enforcement officer who personally observed...
Has anyone witnessed 346.65(2)(bm) used in sentencing of a 2nd offense OWI.
Trying hard to fulfill all the requirements of 346.65(2)(bm) prior to plea and sentencing but am not very optimistic that all the proactive effort will pay off. Does probabtion and treatment absolutely have to be court ordered or can I voluntarily seek treatment prior to sentencing. I feel as though I am currently on probation as I am already being penalized financially, being forced to be on SCRAM bracelet and report to WCS bi-weekly, etc... All factors are primarily mitigating except for BAC level. 346.65(2)(bm) indicates it can be used once in a lifetime. Funny, because I can only be charged with an OWI (2nd) once in a life time. It would seem that now is the only time that it can be leveraged. Hopefull !
Many counties do not routinely place people on probation for a second offense OWI. A person can certainly obtain an "...
