Officer #1. The intoximeter test had already been started he informed officer 2 that the informing accused needed to be read, he read it and I refused to answer if I would submit. Officer#2. I gave a breath sample during the Intoximeter test, the other officer came back and said he didn't read the Informing the Accused had not been read. They then read it to me. Shouldn't they have read it to me first? They said if I refused it everything would be easier in the long run. So I didn't answer, I didn't know what to say. They marked me as a refusal. I did research -because they never gave me my id back- and they never told me if I was a refusal I lose my license for a year. They also stated I sat on the curb before the arrest and wouldn't get up. My two friends saw me get right into the car
Based upon the facts posted, you may have a defense to the refusal, IF you requested a hearing in a timely manner. Don'...
I was driving to a gas station,and then I came out and a cop was next to my car. She must've known that I drove to the gas station. She tested me knew I was intoxicated. My ticket was $240, but she didn't charge me with a DUI. Does that mean I got lucky?! Will she bring it up during my court date that I was driving?
Were you only cited, and not arrested? If you were not arrested, and she let you drive away, then she must not have...
Hi, I just got an underage last weekend in Wisconsin and was wondering what my options were. Here's the details: I was outside my house around 8:30 still light out, and i was just talking to my friend when two cops were walking down the alley and saw a beer bottle in my hand. One stopped and cited me and my friend for underage drinking. However, the cop stated that he didnt right down that i had a bottle and he didn't breathalize either of us. He also said something about a "watch" going on in the neighborhood so he had to give us an underage. I was wondering if there was any possibility of me fighting this charge, i never admitted to drinking either although it was my first beer im almost 20 years old and, turn 21 in 4 months
If there is no hard evidence (e.g. you weren't breathalyzed or given any sobriety tests), you should fight the citation.
So i had a bonfire at my house. The cops came and gave a few people underages, i ran and wasnt seen. Two days later, i recieved court days one for underage and other for possession of drug parafenilia. For the underage i want to get out of it cuz its 456 bucks! which is really high priced if you ask me. If they never breathalyzed me, or seen me for that fact i dont see how i got it. My friends said they didnt rat me out, and if they did i dont believe they can go off hear say. Yes it was my house, but my brother threw the bonfire. The drug parafanilia some of my pipes were found in my friends purse and well if it wasnt in my purse with my indentification how did i get a ticket. Once again, Hear say? idk wut to do. Not guilty???? HELP.
Hearsay is an out-of-court statement offered in court to prove the truth. Here's an example. If a police officer...
What happens to bond money if bond is violated. I violated a condition of bond was taken into custody for drinking
I have not been convicted or sentenced for charges (DUI 3 rd) and I was released the next morning,how will this affect pending sentencing at my plea/sentencing hearing in June and I believe my release was a clerical error,but I was allowed to leave so I did. Can they come re-arrest me if the release was a clerical error and error is later discovered and do I have to sit in jail until my court date in June and how will the $8000.00 signature bond be handled? Can I request a separate hearing to deal with bond violation sooner than June date and would bond be offered again?
If the DA failed to arraign you within a timely manner, most DA will later arraign you at another date.
Can a 3rd OWI be reduced, if there was no accident or injury? I was pulled over for not having my lights on in town at night.
I got a 3rd offense OWI. I "failed" the sobriety test, but I don't feel I did that poorly overall. Also I don't feel my driving was impaired. My BAC was .07. I was pulled over for not having lights on, I turned them on before I was pulled over. Is there a chance I can get the charge reduced to something lesser? I am trying to avoid a 3rd OWI in Wisconsin. Is it something that is only reduced at pre-trial or what?
Drunk driving charges can't be amended without a showing of cause and a finding on the record that the amendment is in...
Will insurance company find out about supervision for Illinois DUI because of Wisconsin reporting it?
I had a WI license. I received supervision for DUI in Illinois (meaning my insurance company cannot see it). However, WI just suspended me for this Illinois DUI (since they don't have supervision). Question is....even though IL won't report the supervision....it is possible my insurance company will still find out from Wisconsin?
Illinois reports DUI supervision to the licensing state. That's why WI suspended you.
