Is there away I can beat this DUI or get a lesser charge by this being my first offense
I got pulled over last night I passed all the test they have you do when they try to make sure your not drunk but I refused to do the breathalyzer so they took me in. They had me blow in this big machine and got my alcohol level. I did have a few drinks and I let them know that my license are also suspended the only reason I was driving was because my friend whos car it was was drunker then me she hit something and I got scared because I was in a bad car accident so I told her let me drive the rest of the way home. Im in school I work and I was working towards getting my license back I actually only have a couple more tickets in Detroit to pay and ill have my license back. but they wrote me a ticket for DUI and Driving on suspended license I go to court Wednesday.
Anything is possible but a lawyer cannot properly assess your options based upon this limited version of the events....
Can i be charged with having a open container & a dui if i wasnt given a BAC test or a citation?
I was pulled over for improper use of a turn signal, when i stopped the cops asked almost immediately to search the car but never gave a reason. Nervously i let them search and they found a empty beer can under the front seat, but they let me go told me i would receive a ticket for the turn signal in the mail. Now im going to be arraigned for a open container & a dui.
You should immediately hire a lawyer, aas the facts you list do not support those charges. Avvo has them. Good luck.
What will happen now that I failed my ignition interlock device and then passed it?
This morning I stupidly used mouth wash before leaving the house to go to an AA meeting because I had gotten sick, and failed my breath test on my interlock device. I instantly started freaking out and had a panic attack, I tried quite a few times to blow, but my breathing was too sporadic for it to work and it eventually said something about, "tampering with device." I then was able to calm myself down enough to blow and passed. What should I expect now? I was not drinking and have not had a drink in over 3 years and I'm really scared they will revoke my suspended license. I am not on probation, I just received my restricted license at the end of February and I had to get the ignition interlock device installed through Smart Start. My device is not locked out or anything.

DL Suspension due to OWI 2.
My license has been suspended for a year, but I honestly have no intention to discontinue driving. Between my 2 jobs, little league coaching, and lack of a metro Detroit mass transit system....I mean it's impossible. Can I circumvent this problem by obtaining a DL in another state?

Should I attempt to reduce sentence?
I got pulled over in novi, MI. For speeding/dwls (1st offense), A few days later I got a owi(3rd). Well when I got sentenced for the 1st offense dwls they gave a recommendation of 2 years of probation and 5 days in jail. Well I tried to plea, and I got 1 year probation, 12 weeks counseling, a black box in my car, Testing on a driving simulator, 50 hours of community service, and I ended up paying $1350 in fines/fees. when I got sentenced for my owi I got into a sobriety court program, that allows me to have a restricted license and extensive probation ( weekly therapy, work program, AA, meetings with judge and probation officer ). My question is... Since I'm doing all of this stuff for my sobriety court, should I try and get my overkill sentence reduced for the DWLS?
Are they in the same District Court? If so, you may have a decent chance of getting the two probations "consolidated,"...
