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.

i WAS PULLED OVER IN ST PAUL, MN BY A EAGAN,MN COP FOR SUPPOSED SPEEDING, RAN MY INFO CAME BACK AND ASKED IF I HAD BEEN DRINKING said I had 2 beers he asked to get out and do a field sobriety test which I passed but then blew a .12 and was arrested for a DWI then 1/2hr later at the station they asked to blow again which I did and it was .10. Pulled my license within week have a court end of month. This is a first for any type of violation. Doesn't passing a field sobriety test count for something, also I thought there was a 2hr window before they did a second Breathalyzer. When the cop first pulled me over he said it was speeding but when I received the police it said nothing there a speeding.. Do I need a lawyer. I live in Minnesota.

Hello. Here is a statute cite for your review and study: https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=171.09 I urge you...
I was never booked or finger printed. Does this mean anything? No prior record.
It is common for a person to get home relatively quickly on a first time DWI like this, so the fact that you were...
Registration was renewed in August 2014. Incident occurred in December 2014. Do I need to wait until August 2016 for regular plates or just December 2015? Also, if I purchase another vehicle would whiskey plates also be required?
You should contact an attorney to discuss in more detail. Depending on the circumstances you may not have to wait at all.
Previous charge was assault.
I'd strongly recommend hiring a good lawyer to defend you. Your lawyer can try to have arrest warrant cancelled and...
