Hancock Law

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?

I dare not get into too many details. Let's just say the officer was way wrong in how he handled it. Should be grounds for dismissal.
You will have to call and talk with an attorney about this issue as it is very fact specific. There are many attorneys...
