I got a DUI in mn but I'm from Iowa and cannot afford defense. I just want to know the steps and how.
You will need to appear in court on the date specifice in MN and apply for court-appointed counsel.
I was recently convicted of 2nd Degree DUI in MN. I sent in the vehicle forfeiture challenge and implied consent challenge last Dec. My court date for my vehicle is Dec 22 and my license is Jan 5th. The vehicle is worth more than $15,000 and will be in district court. The loan on the vehicle has a balance of $19,000. Can anyone tell me what the chances are I will get the vehicle returned, sell it, or return it to the lien holder? Also the Dept of Public Safety informed me that I will have a 1 year limited license and 2 year restricted (Ig Interlock), so there is no hard revocation? They told me since I live in TX now, I just need to pay the fine and complete classes, etc. Thanks AC

The drunk driver’s insurance company is totaling out my car. There is a lone on the car. They are telling me that I have to come up with the money to pay off the loan before I can retain ownership of the car. I want them to pay off the loan, deduct the value of the car from the settlement, and give me a check for the remainder with a salvaged title. There reply has been that there’s a MN state law saying that they can’t pay off the loan on the car without taking ownership of the vehicle. They will pay off the loan only if they get to keep the car in other words otherwise I have to come up with the money to pay off the loan before I can keep the car and receive a check from them. Why do I have to come up with money to pay off the loan before I can keep the car? FYI: the driver was arrested.
You may want to check your loan documents and see if you have GAP insurance. GAP covers the difference between what...

I dare not get into too many details. Let's just say the officer was way wrong in how he handled it. Should be grounds for dismissal.
You will have to call and talk with an attorney about this issue as it is very fact specific. There are many attorneys...
