I received a DUI in another state more than three years ago. I moved to Minnesota recently and I need to get a new license. All of the criminal charges in the previous state were dropped, however the previous state has laws requiring an alcohol class to get your license reinstated, which I never took before I left. 1. If I were to apply for a new license in Minnesota would that prevent me? 2. If so, what are my options going forward?
Probably not. You'll likely need to satisfy the other state before Minnesota will give you a license. Talk to one of...
I was stopped late night by the police who gave me a field sobriety test (touching the finger, walking in a straight line, holding one leg up and following his finger with my eyes). It seems that I passed all of them. Then I took a breathalyzer test blowing 0.088. I maintained that I hadn't had a drink in several hours. They let me go without giving me a ticket (just gave me my license back) but called a tow truck and said I had to pay for the tow home. I was pretty scared so I can't remember clearly but I believe he said he could charge me but wasn't going to (perhaps b/c I was polite and cooperating). My question is, did I get charged with a DUI? Should I consult a lawyer at this time?
Sounds like you are pretty lucky on this one. Be more careful next time.
Got charged with 3rd degree dui for not taking breathalyser test. had dui 12 years ago. is being charged as first . penalties?
was sober over ten years. have been struggling for couple months. going back to meetings now. was coming home from work parked at a park by my house(so i could walk home)and drank in car. got busted in car with car parked. but i don't think that matters at all under law.
Your charge is a gross misdemeanor and does not carry mandatory jail time, although some prosecutors will initially ask...
DUI in GA, 1989. Jumped through all the hoops and left the state in 1990. Have held a valid DL ever since but when I went to renew in August 2012, I find out that GA screwed everything up and suspended my DL in 1990. They claim I owe them 20 hour DUI class (did it) and a drug/alcohol evaluation (did it) plus a reinstatement fee of over $200. Of that, all I did not do was the reinstatement fee because my DL was not suspended by the judge. How could I have held a DL for all these years, gotten tickets, was arrested in 2007 but never did my license come up suspended until now? I need to know how to make this go away. I cannot renew my DL, nor can I get a gov't issued ID until I clean it up. Please advise....
Minnesota Department of Public Safety will respect and enforce whatever status is in Georgia. The problem should be...
DWI enhancement. I am wondering if my prior DWI can be used to enhance a recent one I got. I was revoked on my prior DWI . . .
. . . more than 10 years ago, but was convicted less than 10 years ago. Can they use it to enhance? Thank you for your help.
Yes they can go by the conviction date or the revocation date. You should contact an experienced DWI attorney to...
I got my DWI knocked down to Careless Driving on the criminal side but did not win my implied consent challenge. I've heard that a DWI means that a person can't go to Canada. Does that mean a criminal DWI conviction or does that also apply to implied consent/drivers license revocations?
My understanding is that you will be able to enter Canada since your DWI was reduced to Careless Driving, even with the...
