I was involved in a minor accident however I believe I was charged with Operating while intoxicated. My PBT on scene was .12. I was taken to the sheriff station to complete booking. Another PBT was administered. I was not notified of the result. My question is when I was booked in the county jail I was only there for about 3 hours and then was released, I'm assuming on Personal Recon. I did not have to post bail however I was not arraigned either. Is this customary? Can I expect to be arraigned at a later date? Thank you
It appears you have not been formally charged as of yet and will be in the future. They will issue a warrant once you...
I have a court date at the end of the month and this is my first ever offense of any kind. What should I expect with the 46th district court as well as proceedings, need for an attorney, etc? And as far as consequences, what are the probables like jail time, probation, etc?
OWIs (Michigan DUIs) are extremely complex to litigate. You absolutely need an attorney. Make sure that when you talk...

2d DWI several months ago and have not received anything from court and was never arraigned? how to proceed?
I received 2nd DWI in the Spring and immediately checked myself into an in-patient facility for three weeks. It has now been several months and I have not received anything from the Court. All that I have is the paper temporary license that they gave me after I was arrested, which I guess is my ticket. I have never been arraigned, there is no court date on the ticket, and I have not received any notice whatsoever from the Court (of an arraignment or otherwise). Getting concerned and not sure what to do. Afraid to call the Court and trigger something happening. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
1st. Hire an attorney. 2d. check the clerk's office. There is probably a warrant for you for failure to appear.
My niece was living in Chicago. She had an accident that did not involve any other vehicles. She got a DUI. This happened 6 months ago. The court keeps postponing the case. She has since moved back to Michigan. So much time has gone by that she has re-established herself here with a job and apartment. She cannot afford to go back and forth all the time and she cannot live there anymore. If she gets probation in Illinois (random testing etc) how will that work? Is there a way to transfer that sentence here to Michigan?
Generally speaking, probation can be transferred between states. Michigan has an Interstate Probation Compact statute...
I was arrested for a MIP this summer while being in the passenger seat of the car, the case is close and i was charged with 8 months of probation, MADD meetings and another MIP meeting. Not only is this a problem because i attend a college that is far away from oakland county, but the driver was charged with a MIP and 4 months of probation while 18 and blowing legal limit. Realistically he should of gotten a dui because of his age, but not only that i was given harsh punishment for just being in the passenger seat.. I understand Judge smalls has a history of MIP cases and DUI cases that have been unfair, and i feel i have received a punishment that i do not deserve. A MIP is far more different then a DUI in my mind.. I want to do something about this case.. Any ideas? This is a outrage
What you can do is not drink intil you are of legal age. Just be glad it won't go on your public record. You broke the...
What are my chances of a probation revocation? How will the discretion of the judge affect my chances of recieving time in jail?
Let me be clear first; I am not a recidivist nor have I relapsed. I haven't had a drink since my sentencing in August. I have been on probation for a OWAI for a year and one month as of today. The total sentence is 18 months and will be finished this may. I have complied with all of the requirements; All but the 200 dollars left on my fines. I continue substance therapy past requirement because I enjoy the sessions and it helps. This last round of holiday testing though has left my family and I scratching our heads. The morning of Thanksgiving I blew a .01 on the breathalyzer. My lawyer told me that it was probably the Nyquil I drank prior to the test and the night before. If the discretion of my probation officer differs and I have a show cause hearing; Will they revoke my probation?
It is unlikely they would revoke your probation for such a first offense, especially since you have a long track record...
