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.
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...
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...
My first DUI was in WI 20 years ago My 2nd was 2 1/2 years ago in MN My 3rd a month ago in WI I have a WI attorney. My WI attorney mentioned that i should sit down w/a MN lawyer and discuss ramifications, steps to take, ect. I am a low income individual I've attempted to contact Pro Bono attorney's w/very little luck. I need to sit down w/a knowledgeable MN attorney and go thru some ?'s at an affordable rate. My question(s) is this: Do you happen to have/know of (A) a receptive,knowledgeable pro bono outfit in the DUI arena in Hennepin Cty preferably close to MG, (B) a knowledgeable attorney that i could sit down with for a half hour or so for $50-$100. Sorry, but i am just not having any luck and want to be proactive w/this. I've been assessed and am going to a 48 hour class. tia
Attorneys here do not solicit clients. I suggest you make a few phone calls. Tricia Dwyer Esq.
So here are the details and the latest occurrence. I was convicted of 2nd degree DUI in MN in Oct 2014. The vehicle in the case had its forfeiture case in December and lost (not surprised). The vehicle was worth over $15,000 and in MN statute, it was to be returned to lender. The vehicle was released to my lender on 01/16/2015. I was discussing the next steps on the vehicle and the repossession supervisor with the lender asked me what I wanted to do with the vehicle. I asked him my options and he said I could let it go to auction and from there the remaining balance would need to be settled. He then asked me if I wished to pick up the vehicle pending payment of storage and towing $1500. The paperwork did NOT state "DO NOT RETURN TO OWNER". Would I be able to pick it up? via tow truck?
This is a good question. I don't know that anyone will be able to give you an answer. The statute seems to contemplate...
I have WI counsel. My attorney advised me to speak w/a MN attorney as well. (He didn't exactly say when, but initial ct date is @ the end of Feb) I have parents who live in WI & i grew up there. I've read (Karyn Missimer) posts about the Ntl Dr Register & Interstate Compact so i'm not completely clueless. She (Karyn) suggests that someone in my position obtain a Lic in WI and hope the DA agrees to charge me under the WI license. So my question is, what is your experience with this & is it subjective if I have a WI license? meaning, if i get a WI license and get charged under it, when i go to get a MN license in the future, can they impose penalties? tia.
