Officer #1. The intoximeter test had already been started he informed officer 2 that the informing accused needed to be read, he read it and I refused to answer if I would submit. Officer#2. I gave a breath sample during the Intoximeter test, the other officer came back and said he didn't read the Informing the Accused had not been read. They then read it to me. Shouldn't they have read it to me first? They said if I refused it everything would be easier in the long run. So I didn't answer, I didn't know what to say. They marked me as a refusal. I did research -because they never gave me my id back- and they never told me if I was a refusal I lose my license for a year. They also stated I sat on the curb before the arrest and wouldn't get up. My two friends saw me get right into the car
Based upon the facts posted, you may have a defense to the refusal, IF you requested a hearing in a timely manner. Don'...
I was driving to a gas station,and then I came out and a cop was next to my car. She must've known that I drove to the gas station. She tested me knew I was intoxicated. My ticket was $240, but she didn't charge me with a DUI. Does that mean I got lucky?! Will she bring it up during my court date that I was driving?
Were you only cited, and not arrested? If you were not arrested, and she let you drive away, then she must not have...
Hi, I just got an underage last weekend in Wisconsin and was wondering what my options were. Here's the details: I was outside my house around 8:30 still light out, and i was just talking to my friend when two cops were walking down the alley and saw a beer bottle in my hand. One stopped and cited me and my friend for underage drinking. However, the cop stated that he didnt right down that i had a bottle and he didn't breathalize either of us. He also said something about a "watch" going on in the neighborhood so he had to give us an underage. I was wondering if there was any possibility of me fighting this charge, i never admitted to drinking either although it was my first beer im almost 20 years old and, turn 21 in 4 months
If there is no hard evidence (e.g. you weren't breathalyzed or given any sobriety tests), you should fight the citation.
So i had a bonfire at my house. The cops came and gave a few people underages, i ran and wasnt seen. Two days later, i recieved court days one for underage and other for possession of drug parafenilia. For the underage i want to get out of it cuz its 456 bucks! which is really high priced if you ask me. If they never breathalyzed me, or seen me for that fact i dont see how i got it. My friends said they didnt rat me out, and if they did i dont believe they can go off hear say. Yes it was my house, but my brother threw the bonfire. The drug parafanilia some of my pipes were found in my friends purse and well if it wasnt in my purse with my indentification how did i get a ticket. Once again, Hear say? idk wut to do. Not guilty???? HELP.
Hearsay is an out-of-court statement offered in court to prove the truth. Here's an example. If a police officer...
Local judge ruled/denied motions saying the stop was not legal/justified/had reasonable suspicion/violated 4th amendment rights because there was a named witness that called 911 after seeing defendant chug a beer or two and drive away, and there also was a hanging air freshener, which is in violation of state statutes against visibility obstructions. Sentencing coming up after attorney advised a trial would not likely result in not guilty, and an appeal would be more likely won if there was no trial that would potentially include more evidence/witness statements vs. only the name/phone number of the witness in the police report. I think $10,000+ is a crazy high gamble for an appeal and specifically want to know if there are any resources out there where I can do the appeal myself? THANKS
Your odds of winning an appeal on your own are so low that you would be better off spending your time elsewhere, such...
My boyfriend got a dui but we are not sure if it's from wisconsin or illinois and also what state lawyer we need or don't need ?
so we are not sure what state he got the dui well he got a ticket from wi of 990 around that amount but no court appearance but license suspended for 6months from wi which he wants to fight for the license but also illinois stopped him for speeding , operating uninsured vehicle and ILCS which I don't kno what ILCS Means (625 ILCS 5/) but has court in illinois ?
ILCS is the statute. 5/11-501 is DUI. He clearly needs a lawyer
Two weeks ago, my husband was pulled over for speeding. He had been drinking at a friend's house, admitted it and blew a .11 on the breathalyzer. He was arrested and taken to the hospital for a blood draw. We haven't heard anything other than seeing a citation for speeding filed on CCAP just filed yesterday. Where's the OWI charge?
They are probably awaiting blood test results before issuing the OWI. The breath test may have been on a PBT, which...
