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...

Yes, the statute of limitations to be charged with a DWI is 3 years.
Is my underage drinking and driving charge now erased?
I pleaded guilty to a case of underage drinking and driving back in 2012 when I was 20. I blew a .03. It's been 3 years now, and I completed everything pertaining to my sentence. Will this still be on my record? I'm going to see me USAF recruiter on Monday and he needs to know so he can decide whether or not I can be an applicant. I can't find records for it anywhere online.
All depends on what type of deal you got when you resolved the case in court. Call one of us to look up the case online....
Why did I get my administrative penalty for "refusal to test", but still haven't gotten any criminal notice/penalty/court date?
At the end of Feb, I was driving drunk and hit a tree and was taken to the hospital. About two weeks later, I got an accident report from the police station that said that I admitted to drinking (while still on the scene of the accident), but when I was taken to the hospital that I "refused to test". Because of that, about a month later I got a notice from the DPS about my license being suspended for "refusal to test". It has now been a month since THAT notice, and a few days away from two full months since the accident. Why haven't I gotten any criminal penalties/court date, etc.? Is it possible I wont? (I ask because I don't want to go do everything I have to do to reinstate my license, including buying a new car/plates, etc, only to have new penalties, plates impounded, etc)
Charges do take some time to process. I would call the courthouse where the charge would be filed and ask them to...
Does Minnesota put Underage Drinking tickets on your driving record?
Not drinking and driving, just a couple underages (age(s) 19-20) by a dumb college kid. License was never suspended. Graduated now and asking because I have to submit to a driver's insurability assessment for a job. Offenses were civil infractions in the state of Wisconsin a couple years back, so not sure if MN knows about it or not, and if they do what do they do with it record-wise?
Why don't you just go to the DMV and request your history to find out? I am not licensed in Minnesota, but in...
Will MN take action against me once they find out I was arrested for another dui, but in another state?
Current resident in Mn. Also have two priors dated back 2007 and 2009. Recently arrested for an OWI (operating while intoxicated) in WI.
Yes, it's very likely that Minnesota will eventually revoke your license if you're convicted of a Wisconsin OWI.
I received a OWI in WI but i live in MN. MN has now revoked my license for 30 days and requested i pay $680 to reinstate my lic
is this not double jeopardy? how can i fight this.
It is not double jeopardy. This is a civil matter rather than criminal. You can contest the revocation but you only...
