So what do I do know? I bogus traffic ticket and an OWI.
The facts: I'm 30 yrs old, I have no criminal record. I have 1 speeding ticket. I've lived in this city for 10 yrs and have never been pulled over for anything. | I drove a drunk friend home safely. On my way to my home i got pulled over. Asked why i run a red light. I said i didnt. He asked did i have something 2 drink. I said yes 1 MIKES HARD LEMONADE (5% alcohol: 3hrs prior to driving). i was soo terrified (the media lately) that I was shaking. He accused me of doing crack. I said I've never. Took a sobriety test. he said i blew 1.5. Took blood test. Results came back negative for drug panels & ethenol. Went 2court. showd results. Plead not guilty.

How likely is it that charges will be dropped for having my sisters ID?/ how likely is it I could get my license no suspended?
I recently got an absolute sobriety citation. I blew a .05 but I'm 18 and under the legal drinking age (in Wisconsin). While the police were looking through my car/my bag they found my older sisters ID so I ended up with a $700 fine for that as well. I wasn't caught using her ID and the only proof they had that I might have used it were some receipts from bars. I told them I had borrowed her purse and she had forgotten to take her wallet out of it. I'm wondering how likely it is that I can get the citation for having her ID in my possessions dropped and I'm also wondering how likely it is that I will be able to go without a suspended license or how long my license will be suspended. Thank you so much for your feedback!

I was subjected to a humiliating roadside sobriety test, which because of my profession could have ruined my career. 0.0% BAC
Abuse of authority, a lie and a clear violation of my constitutional rights to not have my person searched. He claimed a "strong odor of alcohol on my breath" which is clearly false. Numerous controlled studies show clearly that officers cannot detect alcohol on someone's breath even if the person is extremely intoxicated. They can detect a smell if the person just swallowed and still has some liquid in their mouth, bu the intent of the "smell test" is as a predictor of lung/blood alcohol, not a mint that could be construed to smell like schnapps. I got no ticket, so it seems I have no means to hold this cop accountable for breaking the law and jeopardizing my professional reputation. What's more, I've learned this cop is notorious for automatically giving sobriety tests without cause.
It is unclear what, if any, question you have here. You could certainly file a complaint with the police department...

I was give 2 year suspension and 2 year iid for 3rd offense DUI. Before I was convicted I was given an administrative suspension of 6 months. This counted towards the 2 year suspension. Post conviction, now 18 months later I will get full driving privileges back - no longer restricted to Occupational license. However the iid remains for 6 months. My new job will have me travel to CA this summer. They will want me to have a rental. I believe I can't drive any car that has no iid. I've had the IID for 18 months of the 24. Is it worth while going to court and ask the iid requirement to be shortened now that I have my regular license back?
Given your history I doubt if you'll be successful. Speak to your attorney.

So, do you have a question about that?
