Get an attorney. Review all your options before you despair.
What if I get beat up while the police are taking my blood and then hit and abused after firstname.lastname@example.org
I was already pulled over and stopped, asking two little old lady's directions a police officer came to the seen and asked me to get out of the car he said someone called in a weaving car. I was trying to read a map while my passenger was actually driving and the car was on cruise control going down a highway. I stopped at a gas station filled up bought some food and then went the wrong way and found the lady's. the car was legally parked. I was arrested after the breathalyzer the passenger was free to go with groceries and beer. The car was towed and I told the police that I had $1800 under the seat and a valuable computer in a case in the suv some stuff was stolen from the computer bag and they said there was no $1800. I spent 4 days in jail before I could get the deputies to run my bond
If you were in the driver's seat and failed a breathalyzer test it is going to sound like DUI. Based on your story, you...
If the DUI is in a state with lesser penalties but the impact on the accused will be much, much more severe in the licensing state, it was suggested to me that a "mitigation letter" from my attorney could possibly result in pleading to a lesser charge. Does anyone have any experience with this?
It might help but prosecutors are often concerned solely with whether a crime occurred at the charging stage,...

Can I use a special defense for my OWI refusal hearing? (Please note I have a lawyer but want some additional advice)
I was arrested for OWI in Dec '12. The cop says he smelled marijuana. I passed several tests and could not perform some one leg tests due to a medical condition. I did not fail any tests. I was arrested and told that they would draw my blood (found a gram in the car, not my car) due to red. At this point, I felt this was unreasonable search and seizure and extremely intrusive and told them I refuse my blood being taken. I read if I refuse they have to get a warrant from a judge who I felt would listen to the facts and surely deny this, since the cops weren't being objective. They didn't get a warrant. I know that is big for the OWI case but do I have a special defense for the refusal hearing? Please note I have a lawyer but want help from the collective thought power of this site.
While I'm not licensed in WI or otherwise familiar with the laws in your state, I can nevertheless respond. You reveal...
If a state is not in the Interstate Compact, will they report a Refusal by itself or just a conviction/Refusal?
DUI was in Wisconsin. Home state is part of the Compact. Both states have mandatory suspension for Refusal
WI reports DUI convictions to IL.
