Arrested in my front yard for being drunk and tearing stuff up with my truck- thought it was my private property - two felonies
A year ago I got really drunk at my house jumped into my truck, in my private drive way,and tore up the lovely yard that the wife likes so much and pushed over my storage shed. Mind you no one was at the house at the time but I was arrested and charged with agrivated DUI , criminal mischief, criminal endangerment. I did all this damage then turned my truck off and waited in my yard for about 2 minutes until the police showed up. My attorney , which my wife use to work for, wasn't much help- got a plea agreement that cancelled the DUI but kept the other two which are felonies. Do you think this was handled properly? I know these small towns make up their own rules as in my case- wife and father-in-law, which I live right across the street from,influenced the police- cant be right?

Convicted in Oregon of DUII. Had a previous conviction 8 years prior. Will be completing ACT program in Montana. Lookback?
I understand that Montana has a 5 year lookback period for DUI which is less than the 10 year lookback in Oregon. Given that I will be completing ACT program here in Montana will this be considered a repeat offense for ACT thus requiring treatment referral? I was convicted of DUI in Oregon 8 years ago and again in Oregon this past year. Thank you in advance for sage words of wisdom regarding completing ACT here in Montana and specifically if I will be treated as a repeat or first time offender in the program.
Contact the local bar association they will get you in touch with some pro bono attorneys. Scotty

Can someone receive a Boating Under the Influence ticket when officers never saw them operating the boat?
I was approached by a park ranger while friends were fighting. The boat was not in the water, it was loaded onto the trailer of a vehicle. The ranger gave me a field sobriety test which I failed. He asked what we were doing all day and I told him boating. He asked whose boat it was to which I replied mine. He asked who was driving the boat. I foolishly responded I was. I received a ticket for boating under the influence and Minor in possession. The ranger never saw me operating the boat, nor did I admit to drinking while operating the boat. I don't believe there is any proof that I was under the influence while in operation of the boat.
Possibly, and it's not that unusual for the police to make an arrest/write a ticket for an incident they personally...
I was convicted of a misdemeanor a few years ago. Just this past year the judge that convicted me was arrested for accepting bribes during a certain few years. My case fell within this time-frame. Can I get my case dismissed since the judge's integrity is in question?
That may or may not affect your case. I assume you entered a voluntary plea of guilty to the misdemeanor offense and...
