My daughter got a DUI. Her license has been revoked. I'm a DAV with mobility problems. Can she can a restricted license?
I'm a disabled veteran. My 29 year old daughter lives with me. She does the shopping and just got a Job. Is there any way she can get a limited license that won't cost a lot? I can drive her sometimes, but like right now I'm in a Lupus flare and can't. This is her first DWI. She's being charged with a gross misdemeanor.
Did she refuse testing or test .16 or higher?

Can a DPS administrative review be taken to a jury trial
The Minnesota DPS has charged me with an interlock program violation of " fewer than thirty initial tests in a month" I asked for a review and sent a letter explaining that I have a limited license with an employee exemption.. I drive my company issued work vehicle for to and from work and for work.. I do not drive my vehicle with my interlock because I can't drive two vehicles at the same time to work. I am a construction Forman and estimator so I have to take my work vehicle to work.. I am not legally allowed to drive other than for work.. So I don't drive my vehicle with my interlock .. Long story short I apparently was one initial start short of 30 so they sustained the initial violation and have extended my revocation period . Can I apeal this decision and request a jury trial?
Not a jury trial, no. However, you may be able to petition for judicial review. Talk privately with a DWI lawyer to...
Can officers tell which of your vehicles have ignition interlock devices by scanning a license plate
I was convicted of DWI and installed a Ignition interlock in one of my vehicles( I have four vehicles). I also have an employee exemption that allows me to drive my company vehicles without interlock as long as I am working. My question is can My fiancé drive one of my other vehicles without being pulled over all the time and officers searching for an interlock device or do they already know which trucks have them installed.
Yes. If they run your plate number it will give them that information.
I was pulled over for dwi, but not given a urine test until 2.5 hrs later. is that to late for a urine test?
The Officer also used two different urine test kits, the sample cup from one and the paperwork from another, Seems to me like a urine sample kit without matching numbers could pose as a problem as acceptable evidence.
These two issues may be very significant in your case. The tests are supposed to be taken within two hours. The state...
Do the steps set by Minnesota BCA in there urine collection procedures have to be followed exactly?
I was ticketed for dwi in Mn. After reading police report and doing some research, I noticed that the officer did not perform the urine collection steps in order, and do all of them in front of me like BCA suggests in its step by step urine collection procedure. BCA states steps 1-7 be performed in full view of suspect and witness. this did not happen this way and he did steps out of order as well. He did step six first, while I was in another room on the phone, then three, then two etc. This info I gathered from the police report he wrote. Can this urine test be challenged or thrown out on these grounds?
Hard to say. Any error or deviation from the standard protocol would have to affect the reliability of the test...
