That sucks, don't expect the police to help. You need a lawyer. The cops couldn't care less.
I was charged for felony DUI & Test refusal and was not the inital driver of my vehicle. The police reports are also conflicting
I was a passenger in my own vehicle when a citizen reported my car swaying in the lane. The driver turned into a McDonald's restaraunt and I took over the driver side to see the menu and order. Just then I looked in the rear view mirror and the red lights were on us. I was told to pull over to the side and me and the driver switched seats again. I was charged as the driver going all over the road and failed my field sobriety test. After reading the police reports from three separate officers, the reports have conflicting information about who was actually behind the wheel at the time of the stop. Also I was on seroquel which is a strong anti-pychotic medication. I did not do the intoxilizer. Does it sound like I may have a chance to fight this?

Can a DPS administrative review be taken to a jury trial
The Minnesota DPS has charged me with an interlock program violation of " fewer than thirty initial tests in a month" I asked for a review and sent a letter explaining that I have a limited license with an employee exemption.. I drive my company issued work vehicle for to and from work and for work.. I do not drive my vehicle with my interlock because I can't drive two vehicles at the same time to work. I am a construction Forman and estimator so I have to take my work vehicle to work.. I am not legally allowed to drive other than for work.. So I don't drive my vehicle with my interlock .. Long story short I apparently was one initial start short of 30 so they sustained the initial violation and have extended my revocation period . Can I apeal this decision and request a jury trial?
