Royal Oak Law

I received 2nd DWI in the Spring and immediately checked myself into an in-patient facility for three weeks. It has now been several months and I have not received anything from the Court. All that I have is the paper temporary license that they gave me after I was arrested, which I guess is my ticket. I have never been arraigned, there is no court date on the ticket, and I have not received any notice whatsoever from the Court (of an arraignment or otherwise). Getting concerned and not sure what to do. Afraid to call the Court and trigger something happening. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
1st. Hire an attorney. 2d. check the clerk's office. There is probably a warrant for you for failure to appear.
I have a small loan on my car and after paying that off I may not have enough money from the insurance settlement without obtaining a larger loan or money out of my pocket to replace my car with a similar model. They were considered super drunk by Michigan law. What is my recourse?
Depending on the value of the car, you may want to consider proceeding in small claims court. I'm not sure what you...
I am not on probation, just asked to do the testing daily at my arraignment. I told the officer I have been sick and have been taking cough medicine, The machine was also acting up a bit before the test, and the officer did test himself once. It also states that if I blow positive, they must test me again 15 minutes later and record all readings, which he did not.
You should immediately go to a private lab and get an erg. This is a private test that can go back 72 hours from the...

Im on daily breathalyzers last weekend I did one and the PO told me I blew numbers I never saw the breathalyzer result or was told what I supposedly blew.They told me to sit down and 10 minutes later they gave me another test and I obviously blew 0s and they let me walk out and leave.I told them I had not been drinking and they still accused me.Is it possible the breathalyzer was messed up how come the second breathalyzer was fine? Can I fight this?
They likely did two tests to see if the alcohol in your mouth dissipated sufficiently to indicate something harmless,...
My keys were in my pocket and the car was in the drive way.
Yes you still can. This is especially true if they have video or witnesses of you driving. It will be more difficult...
I have a prior DUI from out-of-state and was recently arrested for DUI in MI. The prior out-of-state arrest took place outside of the 7 year lookback period, however the plea agreement was unfortunately within the lookback period. I obtained a copy of my MI driving record at the SOS and it sates "This driver has no prior 904 mandatory additional violations of suspension/revocation or 625 alcohol related convictions within the time frames requiring plate confiscation." My understanding based on some online research is that the SOS sanctions on drivers license and the court/criminal penalties are separate entities. If my MI record shows no priors at all, will my license still be mandatory revoked for one year? Does the MI SOS search out-of-state databases for priors? Thank you.
There could be a couple of reasons for it not appearing on your record. The state in which you got your 1st DUI may not...
