Do you always go to jail on second DUI?
I recently got my second DUI. My bac came back as .12 and the reason I was pulled over was for a license plate light being out. I have two kids and one on the way. I am complying with all bail requirements (no driving, no alcohol, wcs, and I have driver sadtey course scheduled) I am really very worried seeing as my boys need me, but lots of places I've look says jail is mandatory...but how much? And could probation or higher fines be an option instead? Is there something I can do to help my case?
The statutory minimum amount of jail on an OWI 2nd is 5 days. In some counties, it's more like 30. I recommend...

Will a court date in 2075 void my citation?
My last question got a lot of odd responses so I'm making this more specific, I really hope this helps. In January 2015 I got a OWI ISSUED MY A DEPUTY TRAINEE. I got my court date in the mail, for December 2075. Yes 2075. I'll be 91. I looked myself up on wi circuit court access and there isn't an open court date even though its been over a month since the citation. If it were for December 2015, it still seems like 11 months is a long time to wait for court? If there's no record of an upcoming court date, does that mean the citation is void?
The answer is still "No". This may be a situation in which the DA's office has not gotten around to charging your case....
How do I get an OWI and an absolute sobriety citation reduced enough to keep my license?
I was driving home in stop and go traffic from Summerfest with my mom and rear-ended someone when everyone slammed their brakes. I blew a .07, but got an OWI and an absolute sobriety ticket bc of my age (20, and my 21st is in a month). My mom was too drunk to drive and that's why I ended up driving. Is there anything I can do to get anything reduced or at least keep my license? I have to drive 30 min to work fulltime and school.
The best thing you can do is focus on legal representation. You will want to get an attorney working for you right...
