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 .

My husband was driving while drunk. He hit a gate and caused damage to the gate and his vehicle. He left the scene of the crime. A week later, he was pulled over. The police man asked him to come to the station for questioning. If he goes to the station and confesses, can he get a DUI?
It would be best not to make any statements to police. Admissions could lead to charges and half-truths or lies could...
I know someone who has 3 DUI's and is somehow still driving for a business owner, how do I report the business without them know
This is totally unacceptable. I passed by the delivery driver yesterday and it was definitely this person driving who shouldn't be driving.
Are you saying the driver has 3 convictions? And if so, are you saying that the driver's licensed is currently revoked...
I am a complete idiot, more than anyone can understand. I know being depressed is NO excuse but I am severely depressed over my second owi in June, not yet convicted. I got a second second today August. I have a child, I am a senior in college engineering student. I really cant take life, I know suicide is not the answer however. What am I facing? Will I be charged an OWI third?
First off, even if it were changed to a third it's completely manageable. Call a lawyer and let them help you....
