My husband was arrested in our driveway for DUI - he was sitting in the driver's seat with the vehicle running. He took a breathalyzer test onsite and blew .163. He was taken to jail and released to me a few hours later with no paperwork. They did not take his license, nor have we received any paperwork for what he will be charged with. What is our next step? Do we just wait for paperwork to arrive in the mail? I assume he is safe to drive until then? This happened on Saturday night, it is now Wednesday.
I would not wait for anything. The fact that he was taken to the jail likely means the process will be beginning for...
Is the punishment more severe for those who have crashed their vehicle (no other cars involved) versus those who are simply pulled over? Can a judge says that .15 is close enough to twice the legal limit and treat it as such? What can a person with a clean driving record expect to have happen?
A crash case could potentially be handled differently by the prosecutor and judge. There may be several legal issues...
My car's steering went out while I was driving and I was able to maneuver it to the side of the road. I walked to the nearest restaurant/bar to call a friend to be picked up. I had a couple beers while waiting. My friend arrived and drove me home. I again had a couple of beers. Then the police showed up at my residence to inform me of towing my car. They gave me a breathalyzer test, which I failed and gave me a ride to the police station. I was given paperwork for revocation of my license. This happened on 4th of April and I still have not been charged. Will I be charged and how long does that process take? I have called Sherburne County but keep on being told I have not been charged yet. I need my case to be heard. I am unemployed and now I cannot even look for a job!
You have a defense of post driving consumption. Unfortunately, you only had 30 days to challenge the revocation of your...
I was not jailed or to date (2 months later) been charged with a DWI. The papers I received just state I must pay a $690 fine and re-take my drivers test. When I called the DMV they said my license was revoked for 2 years. How can this be?
I would call a lawyer today for a free consultation there is much to discuss
i was recently pulled over with a bac of .303 and charged with 3rd degree dwi. it is my second one in 10 years. i am curious, with an experienced lawyer what could my charge possibly be reduced to?
With a blood alcohol level that high, more that three times the legal limit, and a second offense, chances of the...
I am about to be sentenced on my second DUI in 6 years. (2 days jail, 28 days EHM). Because of the DUI (second) I will be going to court for a probation violation. Will the DUI time I serve now count against time for the probation violation? My first DUI was 5 years 8 months before my Second. My probation is from a drug felony charge in 2001. So, I am wondering if the time I serve on this DUI will count toward the sentence for the Probation Violation. ?? DUI was Stearns County. I am on probation in Anoka County, The original offense the probation is for is out of Wright County. Thank you for your time.
It's altogether possible that it would count towards probation violation. I'd consult with your attorney to see if...
What if I get my second citation for underage drinking in two different county's? What will the outcome be? Do I have to go to court? Or do I just pay the fine? And will it be on my record?
Of you just pay the fine, then yes it will be on your record. Your best bet is to contest it in court. Depending on the...
