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 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...
I am a first time offender and had a BAC of .13, so I believe I will qualify for the one day DWI program. If I do this will this be in place of other fines, etc? What are the advantages and disadvantages? When do I ask to be a part of the program? Before I am convicted, do I ,mention it to the public defender before meeting with the Judge?
The One Day Program is a typical requirement in first time offenses, and usually the court will sentence you to do it...
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...
1st DWI with high BAC. BAC was close to being misdemeanor. I know I will be told it is not smart to represent myself but I have no choice. I financially can not afford a private lawyer. Will I be able to discuss this with the prosecutor before hand to determine what will happen if I do plead guilty? I am not trying to fight this as I know what I did wrong. I would like to minimize penalties. Or is there a way to prolong court until I do have the money in two months to hire a private lawyer?
What county are we talking? That help answer your questions.
I received my DWI last week. It was outside of my probational period. What am I looking at for realistic fines and punishment?
I blew a .16 the first time in 2010 and a .11 this past week. I was pulled over for speeding and I was alone. I was did not have a bail and I was released with an hour and a half. I have court in 2 months.
You are facing Minnesota's mandatory-minimum sentence law for a second offense. Under that law, you are generally...
If my criminal DUI charges are reduced to careless driving but I am still convicted of the implied consent violation, will the implied consent conviction show up on background checks for future employment? I am about to graduate with my MBA and am concerned about getting a job because I have an implied consent conviction on my record, even though my criminal was pled down.
The implied consent revocation is not a "conviction" on your criminal record and it won't show up there at all. It is...
