Can I get my OWI lessened to reckless driving?
The officer followed me for over a mile, from the outskirts of town, through town, and multiple corners, before pulling me over for crossing the center line on a road the doesn't have a painted, distinguished, line. Also, in our town, there is odd and even parking in the winter time. During that night the vehicles were to park on the side of the road in which I was driving, forcing me over, past the middle of the road. Also, there was snow earlier that week and the roads were covered enough that you couldn't see the blacktop. In this, the officer had also found a small amount of marijuana and a pipe, which he said he could not charge me with because he illegally searched my car. This is my first offence and since the event the county police officers have been driving past my work and home.
Under WI law, drunk driving charges can't be amended without a finding by the court that it is not against the public...

What is the post judgement interest rate for a DUI?
I was convicted of DUI in 2007 and had a judgement of $1366.50 as a fine. I was charged interest at $4.80 (4.25%apr)a month for 12 months, but have subsequently been charged $13.67 (12%apr) a month for about 5.5 years. I obviously forgot about the fine but I need to pay it off. Am I being charged the correct interest? If not, how can I rectify this? It seems as if I am being charged more than the state statute calls for on civil judgements.
I am not licensed in Wisconsin, but in California it is ten percent. I would think it ought to be the same in...

How to prove the officer is lying
I was pulled over and took the breathalyzer, blew a .03 passed the field tests, but in the report the officer stated I blew a .141. I can't afford a lawyer so went to the public defenders office he said unfortunately there is nothing we can do. he also said it's unfortunate that was the officer that pulled me over because he's a known liar and I have to prove my innocence. What happened to innocent until proven guilty?
You're still innocent until proven guilty. I'd agree that it's unfortunate that the officer is a liar, but that's why...
Should I hire an attorney for an underage alcohol possession ticket?
I am a freshman, living in a dorm. Recently, I was issued a ticket for possession of alcohol. I had been gone from my dorm room for a half hour, but friends had been there, left empty beer cans visible from the door, and left the door open. A police offer walked past the empty room, saw the cans, located me elsewhere on the floor, and issued me a ticket for possession of alcohol. There were also a few beer cans in the refrigerator, which I said I was unaware of. The police asked for a breathalyzer test, but I declined (the officer said that I smelled like alcohol, but I wasn't visibly intoxicated). I have people to verify that I was gone. If I plead not guilty without a lawyer, what are the chances the case is dismissed, and would doing so hurt my chances if it isn't?
You should get an attorney. I can almost guarantee that they will not dismiss the charges if you plead not guilty. They...
