My son was charged with OWI but was NOT DRIVING. He was at a single family home, truck was parked in driveway, he was in home.
My son was at friend's home (single family private home), they were fighting, someone called to report fight. 4 or 5 sheriffs came with guns drawn. My son was in garage & his truck was parked in driveway. Officers ignored the reason they came & instead arrested my son for OWI without cause. He was not driving but had a beer at the home. Now they are charging him and order to suspend license. Should he get a lawyer or can he subpenea the 911 call & all officers reports & police car video to prove he was not driving & to prove why they were actually there? Should he request jury trial? He only has this week to do this & to request review for DL suspension. We don't have money for attny. at this time, but need wrongful arrest charges dropped. We only have this week to req. jury trial. Advice?
This is a very complex area, one that few attorneys have the training to handle well. 1. Your son wants to request...
I live in wisconsin and have 1 dui that I was convicted in late 2007 or early 2008.
Ive never went to class or reinstated my liscense. Is there a statue of limitations on the time frame for the assessment or other fees. My fines are paid. When I look on the website it says that I need an assessment and need to pay other fees. My boyfriend got a dui back in the ninetys and he went without a liscense for about 5 years. He just had to reinstate himself and that was the end of it.

Why am i being told by the county assessor for my 1ST OWI alcohol assessment to go to six weeks of AODA inpatient treatment?
I received my 1st OWI in Wisconsin April 2013. I voluntarily put myself in a Veteran Affairs inpatient AODA program for six weeks in Milwaukee July 2013. I stayed an additional five weeks in another inpatient program for mental health. After finally paying off all court fines regarding the OWI, i met with a Winnebago County lady for my mandatory alcohol assessment in July 2015. She said I can only keep my license by going back to the same program for six weeks again even though i already completed it. I feel i am being punished twice and feel morally disgusted.
Treatment is not a punishment. If you returned to drinking, or in the assessor's opinion abusing alcohol, you'll need...
How long does the police have after an accident to test you or draw blood for a DUI charge
I was involved in a one vehicle accident where I rolled my truck. I was taken to the hospital via ambulance. After several CT scans some shots and being on a backboard for approximately 4 hrs a police officer asked me to sign a consent form for a blood draw. Then came back with a DUI citation listing no back level on it. Stating that it would tack some time to get the results back. Is this standard? This I don't feel is right due t the time duration and does not say anything about the bac at the time of the accident
A test taken more than three hours after the time of driving is neither automatically admissible nor presumed to...
