What are the odds of getting my forfeited vehicle back?
Back in 2007 I was charged with a DWI in Minnesota. It's kind of a tricky story and I ended up getting sentenced with Careless driving. No ONE told me to appeal the MN department of transportation for the revocation of my license. So since they are separate I still have a DWI on my license, but not on my record. Too bad I was young and naive and didn't know that because a few weeks ago I got another DWI and blew a .20. They forfeited my vehicle since this is my supposed 2nd DWI within ten years. What are the chances, if I appealed the forfeited vehicle, of me getting it back? The vehicle is only worth about $2500. Or would it just be easier to try it back at auction?
You might consider hiring an attorney to defend you on the present charge; it is serious, and to correct the record.

I received a dui in minnesota over a year ago i tried to get reinstated and they told me i had to wait 5 years is that right
i need advice
While I don't practice in Minnesota, this appears excessive unless you have had prior DUI cases.
My husband recently was arrested for dwi, his only one in over 20 years after over 15 years of sobriety.
He had 3 prior offenses on his record from when he was young so license cancelled ips. he can get his license back if He does interlock. Since he is not working & had surgery that makes him unable to work at present he has not attempted to get his license back. If he waits out the 3 years of cancellation, does he have to have interlock anyway.he has completed treatment & has voluntarily attended outpatient treatment at least once a week as he feels it helps him maintain sobriety. He has been sober since his arrest & plans to stay sober for the rest of his life.
If he is cancelled IPS he will have to do the IID as a condition of getting his license back so he cannot wait it out.
Calling in a drunk driver
So if you see a person stumble out of a bar and start driving and call law enforcement and he gets pulled over from that call alone he gets off because it's entrapment because he didn't break any traffic laws just that a concerned citizen is worried about public safety how can a person be legally drunk and get away with it what is the law .
A concerned citizen is good cause to pull you over so long as specific information was given about your vehicle (like...
Should I disclose a pending DUI charge to potential employers?
I have an interview on Thursday, but currently have a pending DUI charge. It is pretty likely it will get reduced to reckless driving. Should I disclose my pending charge to them? If they ask about pending charges directly, I won't lie, but should I volunteer that information to them? I have no other charges or arrests in my life so I don't really know how to go about this. Thanks!
It matters. I generally would say no, as any increase in your candor perceived would be more than offset by a...
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...
