Pretrial 3 years later
I was charged with an owi in April of 2012 and my former lawyer pushed the court date so many times that it is now scheduled for March 2015. What might I expect after such a delay?

Is is possible to have OWI removed from driving record?
I was arrested for an OWI in Indiana nearly 3 years ago. I had my license suspended for 180 days. I just recently went to court for the charge and thanks to the work of my lawyer, the charge was reduced to a Public Intox. So since the conviction is for a P.I., is it possible to have the OWI removed from my driving record along with the need for the SR-22? Having in on my record is making it extremely difficult to find affordable insurance for my car! I'm 33 and have had no tickets or arrests at all other than the OWI. Never had an accident. So i hate the idea of that OWI causing so much trouble for me on insurance costs.
What is probably on your record is the administrative suspension for having above a .08 BAC. It may be possible if the...

Pre Trial DUI
I got pulled over for speeding a few months back. I had been at a party and waited about 2 hours to head home after drinking. I got breathalyzed and blew a .04. Only being 20, I got arrested. My pre-trial is set for tomorrow and I need advice. Should I ask for a pre-trial diversion? This is my first offense. If not granted that, what would my next line of action be?

What does it mean to amend an owi charge?
This is my 3rd dui in Indiana and I'm out on bond. I was sent a paper to be back in court for another initial hearing to amend the owi charge.
Without reading the actual paperwork, an answer would not be appropriate. However, a third DUI is very serious. You...

In the state of Indiana, can you refuse a breathalyzer test, without penalty, if you are not operating a veichle?
I was driving a friend, who is 20, from my house back to his house at 11 PM. I was pulled over by an officer for having a headlight out. Batesville is a small town and the officer knew that my friend (sitting in the passenger seat) wasn't 21 and made him take a breathalyzer test to make sure he wasn't consuming alcohol underaged. The officer was very rude and his request for a breathalyzer test felt very invasive. I understand that you can get your licence suspended for 1 year if you refuse a test while driving but does this apply to other people in my car? Can an officer request for a breathalyzer while I am walking home from a bar and use it against me for public intoxication or do I have the right to to refuse a breathalyzer, without penalty, because I am not operating a motor vehicle?
Based on your question, it would appear that the "breathalyzer" to which you are referring is a portable, hand-held...
