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.

I was recently convicted of 2nd Degree DUI in MN. I sent in the vehicle forfeiture challenge and implied consent challenge last Dec. My court date for my vehicle is Dec 22 and my license is Jan 5th. The vehicle is worth more than $15,000 and will be in district court. The loan on the vehicle has a balance of $19,000. Can anyone tell me what the chances are I will get the vehicle returned, sell it, or return it to the lien holder? Also the Dept of Public Safety informed me that I will have a 1 year limited license and 2 year restricted (Ig Interlock), so there is no hard revocation? They told me since I live in TX now, I just need to pay the fine and complete classes, etc. Thanks AC
