DWI reduced to careless driving if I do not contest license revocation. Should I accept this offer or continue fighting case?
Pulled over for DWI but the video contradicts the officers report and no reason for the PBT. Talking to my lawyer I guess up to the judge to convict or dismiss the case but the attorney offered a plea which was lower than the original conviction. I'm confused why they do not want me to contest the license revocation. Should I take the offer or not.
If you fail to contest the revocation, it will become final, and can be used in the future to make another DWI more...
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...
what are my chances of staying completely out of jail or treatment? I would gladly do community service or STS or house arrest. I don't have the greatest record but no felonies on it. I work full time and I am in school part time. Again, what are my chances of at least avoiding jail time? what are some good measures I can take to help my case? what are my chances with a public defender vs chances with a private attorney?
You are looking at a mandatory minimum sentence of 30 days in jail (2 in custody and 28 EHM). Probably more if you are...
My buddy got his second dui in march 2009 and blew an .084, he just got sentenced in 2013 and now has the car breath alyzer. Shouldn't he have had the same laws in 2009 than the new laws? How long does Minnesota have to convict or sentence anyone?
If he was represented by an attorney he should speak with him/her about this. It will depend on what the DPS is...
