Hastings Law

I will be using this motion for discovery and a motion to dismiss case if all evidence isn't presented to me, this is for a dui case in Minnesota, I wasn't driving, there was racial profiling issues, and no actual evidence of me driving, also the trial begins tomorrow and I have yet to get any evidence I had requested from the prosecutor other then the police report even though I had made a written request months ago for all evidence and witness lists.
First, if you have not received discovery you should request a continuance. Second, you need not worry yourself about...
I am 55, was a pastor for nearly 20 years. I am not a "drinker" but will have a beer on occasion. I have never been arrested before in my life. After bad news I got drunk, and was pulled over in my parking lot as I arrived home at Veteran's home. The officer was actually very kind, he asked me what was going on etc... After talking for awhile, he told me he was going to take me to jail to be booked and released, saying 12 hours in jail is better than 72 hours in the VA detox. I did not receive a ticket or see a judge. I was released from jail as soon as I could blow a .ooo. When I did I went home. Should I expect anything else to come of this. He could have given me a DUI, but I have nothing to suggest he even reported that I was driving when he picked me up.
Did the police officer (or the jail upon release) give you a Notice of Revocation of driver's license? They almost...
I was recently convicted of 2nd Degree DUI in MN. I sent in the vehicle forfeiture challenge and implied consent challenge last Dec. My court date for my vehicle is Dec 22 and my license is Jan 5th. The vehicle is worth more than $15,000 and will be in district court. The loan on the vehicle has a balance of $19,000. Can anyone tell me what the chances are I will get the vehicle returned, sell it, or return it to the lien holder? Also the Dept of Public Safety informed me that I will have a 1 year limited license and 2 year restricted (Ig Interlock), so there is no hard revocation? They told me since I live in TX now, I just need to pay the fine and complete classes, etc. Thanks AC
I hope you have legal counsel retained to handle this situation. If not, you should get an experienced MN DWI attorney...
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...
What are my chances? I went to class , I pay and do all the things that they tell me to do. I was realease from provation calls like 3 months early... I want to apply now.. What I may need?
Your question is not clear. Apply for what?
On H.A. for a DWI and I don't do drugs or anything but am just curious as to what type of Urine test is given once I am officially off House Arrest? I don't have to take any tests after since my probation isn't followed by a probation officer.
It's impossible to say without knowing the exact terms of your sentence. The lawyer that represented you for the DWI...

No tickets just dui..did my time , finnished my parole, no problems since , its been 13 years. did I mention I never lived in AZ or had a license there. I was turned over to MN for probation.

AZ is making me jump thru hoops.. I can't drive in Mn.. is this legal for AZ, I was done years ago don't owe them money nothing. AZ is refusing to release me
Yes this is very common. You need to satisfy all AZ requirements if you ever have hope of getting a license in MN or...
