I was charged with 1st offense DUI with a minor in the vehicle. I have one year probation with 15 days jail. I am almost done serving my time and am wondering what to expect during my probation. I have heard that a SCRAM bracelet is required in some cases, usually repeat offenders. My P.O. was not sure if I would be required to wear one in my case. I was just wondering if any Lawyers have been through a case like mine and if the SCRAM bracelet was required.
At the risk of sounding glib: A SCRAM bracelet is required as long as your PO says it is. Your PO is in charge of the...
I was pulled over in Wisconsin first offense DUI with a minor in the vehicle. I was told I could get up to 6 months jail time with Huber privleges so that I can keep my job. The state's initial offer was 12 months probation and 15-20 days County Jail. Does that mean I won't get Huber release? Sounds like I will have the option of doing a short amount of full time jail OR long jail with Huber release? What are my chances of getting Huber privleges with the 20 days? I don't have any vacation time left and could lose my job over all this. I am so confused. I am in counseling and will have character reference letters. I would rather have more probation time and no jail. Do they ever do that?
You should be able to get huber privileges on that 15-20 day conditional jail sentence (a sentence served as a...
Can I still submit a Notice To Suspend License form (to try to NOT have it suspended) after the 10day filing period has passed?
I unfortunately received a Notice To Suspend form in the mail after my arrest for 1st time OUI. It is 100% IMPERATIVE that I be able to drive to maintain my job as well as for dire financial reasons. Does submitting this form mean that I am automatically claiming "Not Guilty" or just that I wish to ask NOT to have my license suspended? Please inform! Thank you .

I received my first OWI in Wisconsin. I blew a .07 on record at the police station. Can I still be issued an OWI citation?
I was pulled over for speeding. Admitted to having a couple drinks after being asked. Politely accepted to do a sobriety test. I apparently failed my physical test (it was -8 degrees out) along with blowing a .10. I was arrested. After 20 minute observation period I blew a .09 at the station. After the officer realized he hadn't read the "Informing the Accused" notice the breath test had to be redone a 2nd time. After another 20 minute observation period my breath test came to .07 which goes on my record and saved me from a suspended license. I was still given an $800 citation for OWI. Is that legal if my .07 is what goes on record? What will a lawyer do for me? Could my ticket be thrown out?
You really need to consult a local Wisdconsin lawyer as to your viable defenses. Wisconsin employs differing...
first one .277, second one moving my car in a parking lot bumped another car.
Your likely aggravated with the .277, so not much chance of a favorable plea bargain. Depends on the order of the...
If a state is not in the Interstate Compact, will they report a Refusal by itself or just a conviction/Refusal?
DUI was in Wisconsin. Home state is part of the Compact. Both states have mandatory suspension for Refusal
WI reports DUI convictions to IL.
