What is a likely sentence for a 4th degree dwi misdemeanor in Washington County, Minnesota.
For some of those who practice law in Washington County, Minnesota... What is a likely sentence for a first time 4th degree DWI with a .13 BAC and no priors. I have heard many things from other peoples families with multiple outcomes. Some have 100+ hours of community service but no probation, another had formal probation with no community service and a relative from another county had neither; A MADD meeting and a 1 day class. My lawyer has an opinion on the matter, but I have court Thursday and want to prepare for all outcomes... I can't sleep at night so I thought maybe someone could express their opinions. Worst case scenario is Jail for 90 days which im told they rarely do but could. I'm prepared for the worst case scenario.......
I am not licensed in Minnesota, but there are two points to share. No attorney can precisely predict what will happen,...

If my husband got a dwi do I have to put whiskey plates on a car that I purchase and title in my name only?

After a DWI when am I eligible to get my license back?
My first DWI, I blew a .13 and I have no priors if that matters. Does the 90 days start AFTER my court hearing, or was it when my license was clipped. I know I have to do some other required tests to apply for a license and I know I have to wait until the court process is over with. I'm just wondering when I will be eligible for my license again...
Call DMV and ask what date you can get your license back.
Can I call the prosecutor in my case myself? I will not be hiring a lawyer and I would like to ask him a few questions.
I cannot afford a lawyer and won't even try. Moving on. I was charged with a DWI after crashing my car in a guard rail in a parking lot. I blew a .13. My initial appearance is on April 2nd. Can I plea guilty at that appearance and talk to the prosecutor in person? That's question 1. Question 2, do I call him for a copy of the police report? Question 3. I would like to be proactive about this and make it as painless as possible. There is a mandatory chemical assessment test to get my license back and im assuming it would be helpful to bargain with him if I had completed one and was found not chemically dependent. Can I talk to him about where I may find these services? I will be attending a MADD meeting. Assuming I can talk to the prosecutor, will it look favorable for my initial appearance
You are already starting off asking many questions. You will likely just have many more. Get an attorney on the case...

i WAS PULLED OVER IN ST PAUL, MN BY A EAGAN,MN COP FOR SUPPOSED SPEEDING, RAN MY INFO CAME BACK AND ASKED IF I HAD BEEN DRINKING said I had 2 beers he asked to get out and do a field sobriety test which I passed but then blew a .12 and was arrested for a DWI then 1/2hr later at the station they asked to blow again which I did and it was .10. Pulled my license within week have a court end of month. This is a first for any type of violation.

When the cop first pulled me over he said it was speeding but when I received the police it said nothing there a speeding.. Do I need a lawyer. I live in Minnesota.
