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.

I recieved a DUI in wisconsin about 10 years ago. Paid my fines on time, and taken all required assesments and classes to get my license back. I've had a perfect record since then outside of a single speeding ticket. Is it possible to get the charges reduced, or expunged at all after the fact?
You are probably going to need an attorney file a motion at the very least. You should strongly consider speaking to an...
The deletion is for 10-15 minutes and includes me asking them repeatedly for a blood test instead of the preliminary breathe test. They refused to allow me the blood test and I finally did the blow test. They hid the deletion very well and only because I was almost sober that I remember the whole stop. Who should I contact . Department of Justice, District Attorney, or other option. Any help would be appreciated.

I was arrested for an OWUI. This is my first offense, my record is completely clean otherwise. I currently have an Illinois license but have lived in Wisconsin for 5.5 years. In Illinois, A DUI means revoking my license. My schooling requires me to travel a lot all over Wisconsin, new site every 6 weeks and I am worried about the effects the Illinois license will have on that with a OWUI conviction here in WI. I plan to work and reside in WI when done with school but had not switched to a WI license yet.
I'm going to adjust your practice area to DUI/DWI so you will get some responses in your area. Good luck.
I have not been convicted or sentenced for charges (DUI 3 rd) and I was released the next morning,how will this affect pending sentencing at my plea/sentencing hearing in June and I believe my release was a clerical error,but I was allowed to leave so I did. Can they come re-arrest me if the release was a clerical error and error is later discovered and do I have to sit in jail until my court date in June and how will the $8000.00 signature bond be handled? Can I request a separate hearing to deal with bond violation sooner than June date and would bond be offered again?
If the DA failed to arraign you within a timely manner, most DA will later arraign you at another date.
I got a 3rd offense OWI. I "failed" the sobriety test, but I don't feel I did that poorly overall. Also I don't feel my driving was impaired. My BAC was .07. I was pulled over for not having lights on, I turned them on before I was pulled over. Is there a chance I can get the charge reduced to something lesser? I am trying to avoid a 3rd OWI in Wisconsin. Is it something that is only reduced at pre-trial or what?

I had a WI license. I received supervision for DUI in Illinois (meaning my insurance company cannot see it). However, WI just suspended me for this Illinois DUI (since they don't have supervision). Question is....even though IL won't report the supervision....it is possible my insurance company will still find out from Wisconsin?
Illinois reports DUI supervision to the licensing state. That's why WI suspended you.
