I was arrested for a dui/dwi. I gladly gave a blood test (I requested a urine but was denied). My blood test came back at .01 oxycodone and .02 morphine. The meds were prescribed by a dr. The prescription was 20 mg morphine and 15 mg oxycodone (I think). But they were high amounts due to my chronic pain and several spinal conditions. I had not taken any pain meds for almost 3 days. I have been told once by a probation officer that .20 was cutoff for pain meds. This seems high to me, but then .01 would be nothing. I think this is a joke and they haven't dropped it. Do you know the legal limits? People take pain meds as prescribed all the time and drive. The meds say drive with caution. I crossed the white line twice. Thank you.
Hello. The concern as to the named prescribed drugs is not 'legal limits', but, rather, whether you had a valid...
My gf got an OWI years ago in WI. in order to get her DL back she needs to take Chemical assessment. Can this be done in MN?
She moved to MN awhile ago and was wondering if CA could be done here in state versus driving all the way to WI to do it. Any advice would be appreciated.
Normally, yes. Check with Wisconsin's Court system to make sure. But normally if the assessor is licensed and...

I had a dui over a year ago. What do I need to do. They want to keep my car
You need to consult with an attorney ASAP to discuss your rights and the circumstances of your case.
I was never read an implied consent advisory or given the option to refuse the taking of my blood after I was arrested for a DWI. Instead, a search warrant was issued that allowed for the taking of my blood, and they took it (without me having any say in it)? Is this legal? I thought they always had to read you an implied consent advisory? Thank you.
These are great questions and are central to a major attack on the DUI chemical testing process that is currently...
I was arrested in Saint Louis Park MN for DWI and blew a .13. This is my first offense. I am a high school teacher and do not work in the Saint Louis Park distirict or in Hennepin county. Do I need to notify my school district of my arrest or if I am convicted, do I need to tell them? I have been a teacher for 8 years and had my background checked at that time and do not anticipate another background check form them.
Your teaching contract or CBA probably specifies that you are required to disclose any arrests, but check that document...
I was charged with a 3rd degree DWI - (Blew .20) What are penalties for a 1st time offender realistically? (Hennepin County)
Car was impounded and plates were removed before I picked it up the next day. I did not have to go to jail that night. Blew .20. Trying to figure out what I will have to do when court comes. I don't have a ton of money and have talked to a few lawyers. Everyone says I just need a public defender. I am trying to possibly get it reduced to a misdemeanor vs. gross. Any private lawyers ever accept payment plans? Also, should I get a chemical assessment now or wait for it to be ordered? Thank you for your time!
There are many private attorneys that accept payment plans and most will take payment by credit card as well. If you...
