Lansing Law

I was charged with a DUI last night.
I was involved in an accident. It was the other person's fault. But I did received a ticket for "not slowing down to avoid accident" Which makes no sense. I do not think the test results matter because I drank liquor at the Scene AFTER the crash. I just waited in the car actually and drank wine port.The police did arrive and it said on the ticket that they noted I had wine in my hands when they arrived. I have a jeep and the damage didn't really look to bad, (her car looked totaled) . I didn't know how to handle the situation. I was also drinking before I got into the jeep. But I believe it was the wine I drank at the scene that put me over the limit.
Report this to your auto carrier and hire a criminal attorney. Do not post more admissions online.
Is this a legal ticket?
My fiance got arrested on a dui in my car. I was not present and had no knowledge of the event, but the officer issued me a ticket via my fiance to show up in municipal court stating that I knowingly loaned my car to an intoxicated driver to drive on public streets. Is it illegal for him to issue a document stating that I knew when I had no idea
Yes, it's a legal ticket. Whether you are guilty or not is a different question. Hire a lawyer and fight it if you don'...

Your background information is very confusing. The only state in which you've revealed any conduct meriting a license...
DUI IN TAXES, Illinois resident
I am an IL resident. I had a DUI in IL almost 3 years ago which I was not convicted with. I got supervision. Almost a year ago I was pulled over in TX for driving under the influence. My BAC level was 0.15. The charges are still pending. I was wondering if I can bring that case to IL the state of my residence and have an IL lawyer to represent me instead of going back and forth to TX. Also, I had to install an ignition interlock device in Denton County, TX as a requirement of bond. Will my DUI from IL that got reduced to supervision be treated as a first DUI in TX and then a DUI from Taxes considered as a 2nd DUI. I have an attorney in TX but don't rely on him. Is there any way to bring that case to the state of IL? Or is it better to be held in TX?
In a word, no. Two different sovereigns and two different laws. Get chummy with your Texas lawyer.
DUI Supervision requirements
Under supervision till December 2015. One of the requirements is "no other traffic or criminal violations, no similar offenses" I have not received a ticket or been pulled over since the supervision began. My attorney told me not to worry if were to get a speeding ticket going 5 mph - 10 mph over. Attorney also got my summary supervision rescinded at court date. Said he had a good relationship with prosecutor. That being said, any traffic violation could cause the supervision in jeopardy if the state wanted to re-sentence me?
It sounds like your attorney did a good job for you. Technically any traffic ticket would be a violation of your...
How will IL DUI effect FL license?
I have a lawyer in IL who is unclear on how a sentence of court supervision will be handled in FL. Also when does the SOS report the statutory summary suspension to the FL DMV? I was arrested on 4/21 and as of to-date, my license is still valid.
Your lawyer in IL is as unclear as any of us would be about FL law. You need to speak with a lawyer in FL, preferably...
