Any way to transfer a DUI sentencing between states?
My niece was living in Chicago. She had an accident that did not involve any other vehicles. She got a DUI. This happened 6 months ago. The court keeps postponing the case. She has since moved back to Michigan. So much time has gone by that she has re-established herself here with a job and apartment. She cannot afford to go back and forth all the time and she cannot live there anymore. If she gets probation in Illinois (random testing etc) how will that work? Is there a way to transfer that sentence here to Michigan?
Generally speaking, probation can be transferred between states. Michigan has an Interstate Probation Compact statute...

You could certainly face charges if you blew a .12 while operating a vehicle. You might also get lucky. If you...
Removing DWI record from online viewers?
Once my case is dismissed upon completing probation can I request to have my DWI rochester file removed from online viewing? Not seal or expunge which I know isn't possible. If so, how do you request this of the 52-3 court?
The 52-3 court does not have jurisdiction over the internet. Much of the internet is based in foreign countries anyway....
What Can I expect for probation terms on an OWVI plea?
I was pulled over driving and blew a .076 during the field tests, by the time I blew at the station it was a .08. My ticket was given for an OWI but I have met with a few lawyers who are confident it will be brought down to an OWVI. With that said- what Can I expect to be dealing with in terms of probation from this tough court (Rochester Hills) and tough judges? This is my first ever negative interaction with the law.
You’ve been talking to some pretty weak lawyers if they think the best they can do is get your charge down to a OWVI! A...
Can I do early expungement for my DUI?
I have got a DUI ticket in 2012 in Troy Michigan and I'm trying to do early expungement, if that's possible. I went to the court and they said it has to be 5 years after my probation period. Which means I have to wait till November of 2018 I'm applying for medical residency and having a DUI on my record will definitely affect the process Your answer would be appreciated
As I understand Michigan's laws on this subject, this is not possible in the state of Michigan. Some other states allow...
Court mandated Interlock for 1 yr. not DMV mandated?
I have an interlock mandated by the court which I am doing fine and very due diligent in avoiding false positives etc. It terrifies me the violations that can occur due to false postitives and technical issues such as dead batteries which documentation and ETG testing and reporting to the interlock company and the PO may avoid going in front of the judge but repeated mistakes wont be tolerated. Can your lawyer request from the judge to remove the interlock to avoid future violations, etc. and go back to monitoring the client through the testing center with ETG testing and PBT's? I have heard 52-3 judges even the tough ones have scrapped the Soberlink and went back to testing through the clinic and in another situation scrapped an interlock in lieu the person could use a Soberlink instead which isn't any better than the interlock. I do not want to have the DMV put sanctions on my license although it is the court that initially mandated the Soberlink.
The MI SoS isn't going to put sanctions on your license based on what the judge does with an interlock requirement....
What happens if I violate probation for drinking under 21 if I am only being rug tested?
I am on probation under the courts discretion for possession of marijuana. I am only drug testing and not alcohol testing, even thought I am under 21. I went to a marijuana intensive program where they drug tested and ETG tested us and the results went to our probation officers. I drank two nights prior. If I fail the ETG, what could happen?
You could be kicked out the program and have your case returned to court for prosecution, I suppose. Hire a lawyer.
