  • Religious ignorance can have serious consequences

    Monday Mar 30 | via Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal 

    In 2012, Oak Creek became the site of the worst instance of domestic terrorism since the Oklahoma City bombing when a loan gunman killed six people and seriously injured several others at the Sikh temple where I worship. My community - our community - lives with the consequences of this hate-filled act every day.

Is it wrong for the judge to order an ignition interlock device when bac is <.15

I think you should be glad you're not in jail! Judges have wide latitude to order things like IIDs.

I was subjected to a humiliating roadside sobriety test, which because of my profession could have ruined my career. 0.0% BAC
Abuse of authority, a lie and a clear violation of my constitutional rights to not have my person searched. He claimed a "strong odor of alcohol on my breath" which is clearly false. Numerous controlled studies show clearly that officers cannot detect alcohol on someone's breath even if the person is extremely intoxicated. They can detect a smell if the person just swallowed and still has some liquid in their mouth, bu the intent of the "smell test" is as a predictor of lung/blood alcohol, not a mint that could be construed to smell like schnapps. I got no ticket, so it seems I have no means to hold this cop accountable for breaking the law and jeopardizing my professional reputation. What's more, I've learned this cop is notorious for automatically giving sobriety tests without cause.
It is unclear what, if any, question you have here. You could certainly file a complaint with the police department...

Chances of getting Interlock devise removed early.
I was give 2 year suspension and 2 year iid for 3rd offense DUI. Before I was convicted I was given an administrative suspension of 6 months. This counted towards the 2 year suspension. Post conviction, now 18 months later I will get full driving privileges back - no longer restricted to Occupational license. However the iid remains for 6 months. My new job will have me travel to CA this summer. They will want me to have a rental. I believe I can't drive any car that has no iid. I've had the IID for 18 months of the 24. Is it worth while going to court and ask the iid requirement to be shortened now that I have my regular license back?
Given your history I doubt if you'll be successful. Speak to your attorney.

So, do you have a question about that?
When you have a Wisconsin occupational license, for what purposes are you NOT allowed to drive?
The Wisconsin DMV website states "You may not use an occupational license for recreational purposes." How is "recreational" defined? Obviously you are allowed to go to school, work, church, grocery shopping, etc. (If you check all the boxes), but I'm standing up in a wedding. Is going bridesmaid dress shopping allowed, or going to a salon to get your hair done for the wedding, going to buy my husband a suit, etc? It is a responsibility... Or is that recreational?
The items you list should be fine. Attending a wedding shower at a tavern would not.
