Husband arrested for DUI - now what?
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...
What should a first time offender expect in a DWI charge?
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...
Will I be charged with a DWI?
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...
My driver's license was revoked for failing to pass a breathalyzer test in my driveway.
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 When I called the DMV they said my license was revoked for 2 years.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 received a 3rd degree dwi with a bac of .303, it is my second one. what is the possibility of a lesser charge?
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...
Can I resolve another case while incarcerated for another ?
My boyfriend was sentenced today to 42 months for a felony DWI. My question is this - He has a pending case in Hennepin Co for 5th degree controlled substance. He missed the omnibous hearing because he was incarcerated in another county and is now off to prison - so can he do something about the hennepin case now ? Just so he doesn't have dealing with that to look forward to when he's out ? I thought they could allow him to plead guilty and have the time ran concurrent so when he's done serving his time he can be completely DONE ! Any one know about how to go about this ? PLEASE
Yes there are ways of handling that case inyelligently given the situation. But it is far too complicated to advise...
My 19 year old daughter got a citation for under age drinking and driving which did not include a DUI or DWI in MN.
Can they suspend her drivers license for that and if so when do that have to inform her that it is going to be suspended?
Yes, her license would be suspended for underage drinking and driving. The length of the revocation would depend on...
