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.

What happens to bond money if bond is violated. I violated a condition of bond was taken into custody for drinking
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.
Can a 3rd OWI be reduced, if there was no accident or injury? I was pulled over for not having my lights on in town at night.
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?

Will insurance company find out about supervision for Illinois DUI because of Wisconsin reporting it?
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).
