I was out with some friends drinking, and as we were leaving the bar, a guy was throwing punches at random people. I tried to go out and calm him down, but he remained uncalm. I then went into the taxi with a friend while he opened the door and started punching. He punched me several times in the face and my friend. In defense I swung back while his girlfriend stuck her head in the cab screaming. I meant to swing at him but she got in the way and got hit. I agreed with the cops that it was a mistake and I didn't mean to. They don't know who the man was, but since I cooperated, I didn't go to jail. I was charged with a 5th degree assault. I didn't mean to hit anyone, but I had to to stop getting hit.
You really need to sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney. There are many good ones here on AVVO....
On 1/23/11 I was charged with a DWI. I received my police statements, supplemental reports, as well as other paper work today. -On the supplemental report, filed at 2:48a.m., it was stated "... as the wind blew past me I could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage." However, in the Minnesota State DWI Report, also filed at 2:49a.m., under wind conditions it is marked "N/A". -On the Minnesota State DWI Report under "Speech" it is marked as fair, however throughout the reports it states that I was slurring. -Under the MN State DWI Report "Coordination" section it is marked as swaying, however on more then one occasion in the reports it states "lost balance". -The Implied Consent Law Peace Officer's Certificate, the officer fill out #9, nor signed it until 3/10/11
Possibly, if used in combination with some legal issues that could result in a judge supressing evidence for a...
I hired a lawyer because when I was 14, I was at a house party and it got busted. The cop pulled us into his car 1 at a time, and wrote us our tickets and called our parents. Well, I never knew this until my lawyer told me, that I was charged with a dwi and not a minor in possession. So, I'm curious as if this is possible? I wasn't driving, nor did I have to appear in front of a judge for this. My dad paid the ticket and that was all. My lawyer is in contact with another attorney in Oklahoma where this happened, and she said they have a copy of my ticket, but the cop never wrote down a tag number. This makes no sense..
The question is unclear in some respects. It appears that some years ago (unless you are still 14), you were charged...
Will the state of Minnesota allow me to transfer probation to Illinois? Its my first dwi, and I already accepted the job offer.
I had a dui in 2008 when I was 18. I blew a .015. I just got a dwi on 12/17/11. I got a lawyer to help me through it all, I'm just curious if the state would allow me to take this job. Technically, its my first dwi. I should be able to transfer my probation right?
Normally the question is not whether the judge in MN will allow it, it's whether the Illinois probation department will...
Refused breathalyzer saying I didn't have enough time to talk to lawyer. Contestable? Conflict of interest with Public Def.?
Arrested for a 3rd DUI, on probation, released into DUI court. After failing the roadside sobriety test, I refused the roadside breathalyzer saying I wanted to talk to an attorney first. At the police station I was read my rights, asked, "what constitutes a reasonable amount of time" and was told by the officer they would let me know when it was close(never did). Called a lawyer who said they'd call back. Waited about 20 minutes then called another number. Talked to this half asleep attorney for about 15 minutes not realizing it was a phonebook for 150miles away. I asked to call another, was told no my time was up. I refused saying I wouldn't take it until I could consult another attorney. Is contesting worth a shot? Should I worry since my public def. works closely with DUI court team?
You are facing a criminal charge based on these facts, so I would say that yes it is worth contesting (as would be any...
I got a DUI and also do to medical issues which i also had taken epi-pen earlier before the arrest, dont they have medical laws that need to be follow?

I was charged with a 3rd degree DWI - (Blew .20) What are penalties for a 1st time offender realistically? (Hennepin County)
Car was impounded and plates were removed before I picked it up the next day. I did not have to go to jail that night. Blew .20. Trying to figure out what I will have to do when court comes. I don't have a ton of money and have talked to a few lawyers. Everyone says I just need a public defender. I am trying to possibly get it reduced to a misdemeanor vs. gross. Any private lawyers ever accept payment plans? Also, should I get a chemical assessment now or wait for it to be ordered? Thank you for your time!
There are many private attorneys that accept payment plans and most will take payment by credit card as well. If you...
