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.

How bad would dui look to an employer compared
To other charges such as theft, fraud, assault or simple possession. I have a dui under controlled substance charge. I do qualify for a diversion program and will be able to expunge it in a year but in the time being how bad will a misdeameanor charge (not conviction) look to an employer?

OWI Forfeiture/Nuisance Abatement Trying to decide whether to pay $900 to have my vehicle released or to contest.2nd accusation.
This document says I can pay $900 or contest. The no brainer says I should contest. However, if I lose my OWI hearing, seems like I will also lose my car. I am very confident that I drank within the legal limit....but what if this...? what if that...? what if the judge...? what if the cop says...? Is this black and white? Either pay up or lose my case and my vehicle due to a 2nd possible OWI?
This is a situation where a direct consultation with qualified counsel will be of great assistance to you (and you're...
Michigan OWI. Refused breathilizer and blood test. Wrong driver's license # on search warrant for blood. Throw it out?
2 officers observed me perform dexterity sobriety texts, then 1 asked that I take the Breathilizer. I refused and was put in handcuffs. As 1 officer cuffed me, the observing officer proceeded to tell him it was the wrong thing to do (just thought that was interesting). I refused a blood draw, then asked to speak with my pastor (religious reasons) and lawyer beforehand. This was refused. A review of the search warrant for my blood reveals an incorrect driver's license number, an incorrect vehicle description (wrong color, which is funny considering I was stopped for being accused of running a red light) and a claim that I was advised my rights for a chemical test, NOT that I refused. If I never refused, why the need for a warrant? Just my thought.....
Refusal can be express or implied. Unfortunately many officers interpret nonresponsiveness or indecision as refusal....
