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 was convicted of 3 DUI,s in 1998 2000 2002 then put on IPS status in order to get my DL back
Usually, not. The DWI criminal convictions as well as the associated administrative drivers license revocations would...

While I don't practice in Minnesota, this appears excessive unless you have had prior DUI cases.
Refused breathalyzer saying I didn't have enough time to talk to lawyer. Contestable? Conflict of interest with Public Def.?
Arrested for a 3rd DUI, on probation, released into DUI court. After failing the roadside sobriety test, I refused the roadside breathalyzer saying I wanted to talk to an attorney first. At the police station I was read my rights, asked, "what constitutes a reasonable amount of time" and was told by the officer they would let me know when it was close(never did). Called a lawyer who said they'd call back. Waited about 20 minutes then called another number. Talked to this half asleep attorney for about 15 minutes not realizing it was a phonebook for 150miles away. I asked to call another, was told no my time was up. I refused saying I wouldn't take it until I could consult another attorney. Is contesting worth a shot? Should I worry since my public def. works closely with DUI court team?
You are facing a criminal charge based on these facts, so I would say that yes it is worth contesting (as would be any...
I got a DUI and also do to medical issues which i also had taken epi-pen earlier before the arrest, dont they have medical laws that need to be follow? For several hours I had told them and they did nothing. Was this right or did they do wrong? I have medical records that state I dont have to drink to breath in the machine to show it should be done by other means and they did not check my blood or anything. What can I do and do I have a case to go after the police?
Unfortunately this happens quirt a but in MN. I suggest you contact an experienced DWI attorney and they will guide...
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...
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...
