Officer #1. The intoximeter test had already been started he informed officer 2 that the informing accused needed to be read, he read it and I refused to answer if I would submit. Officer#2. I gave a breath sample during the Intoximeter test, the other officer came back and said he didn't read the Informing the Accused had not been read. They then read it to me. Shouldn't they have read it to me first? They said if I refused it everything would be easier in the long run. So I didn't answer, I didn't know what to say. They marked me as a refusal. I did research -because they never gave me my id back- and they never told me if I was a refusal I lose my license for a year. They also stated I sat on the curb before the arrest and wouldn't get up. My two friends saw me get right into the car
Based upon the facts posted, you may have a defense to the refusal, IF you requested a hearing in a timely manner. Don'...
I was driving to a gas station,and then I came out and a cop was next to my car. She must've known that I drove to the gas station. She tested me knew I was intoxicated. My ticket was $240, but she didn't charge me with a DUI. Does that mean I got lucky?! Will she bring it up during my court date that I was driving?
Were you only cited, and not arrested? If you were not arrested, and she let you drive away, then she must not have...
Hi, I just got an underage last weekend in Wisconsin and was wondering what my options were. Here's the details: I was outside my house around 8:30 still light out, and i was just talking to my friend when two cops were walking down the alley and saw a beer bottle in my hand. One stopped and cited me and my friend for underage drinking. However, the cop stated that he didnt right down that i had a bottle and he didn't breathalize either of us. He also said something about a "watch" going on in the neighborhood so he had to give us an underage. I was wondering if there was any possibility of me fighting this charge, i never admitted to drinking either although it was my first beer im almost 20 years old and, turn 21 in 4 months
If there is no hard evidence (e.g. you weren't breathalyzed or given any sobriety tests), you should fight the citation.
So i had a bonfire at my house. The cops came and gave a few people underages, i ran and wasnt seen. Two days later, i recieved court days one for underage and other for possession of drug parafenilia. For the underage i want to get out of it cuz its 456 bucks! which is really high priced if you ask me. If they never breathalyzed me, or seen me for that fact i dont see how i got it. My friends said they didnt rat me out, and if they did i dont believe they can go off hear say. Yes it was my house, but my brother threw the bonfire. The drug parafanilia some of my pipes were found in my friends purse and well if it wasnt in my purse with my indentification how did i get a ticket. Once again, Hear say? idk wut to do. Not guilty???? HELP.
Hearsay is an out-of-court statement offered in court to prove the truth. Here's an example. If a police officer...
Is there a statue of limitations to get your drivers license back after a drunk driving if you don't complete driver safety plan
If a person gets a drunk driving and has their assessment but does not complete the requirements for the drivers safety plan, can they get a drivers license ever again? Is there any other options a person can take like petition the court for some other sort of punishment or amendment. Its been 2 years since the drunk driving conviction.
The person will need to complete the requirements before becoming eligible to reinstate. They do not time out.
Is there a chance that I won't be charged if my BAC is less than .08% even though I already have a DUI?
This would be my 2nd DUI. My last DUI was 10 years ago. I did not take a breathalyzer, only offered a blood test. I was then released 5 hours later but was never told if I passed or failed? The officer claimed when I was pulled over that I did not stop at a stop sign completely. He then made me walk a line and was suspicious I was over the limit and took me in. That's all I know. They told me my court case would be in a month but I don't have any other details? How quickly would they have gotten my results from the blood test that night? Given that I already have a DUI from 10 years ago, if it turns out I was under .08% what would happen then???
You can still be charged with DUI. You have a more defensible case under 08 but will need a lawyer
I was sentenced for 2nd offense OWI. The prior offense was when I was a minor 7 years earlier. As part of the sentencing, I received the minimum 12 months IID restriction. When I reinstated my REGULAR license (after one year revocation and 4-5 months concurrent OCCUPATIONAL with IID) I noticed that the back of my license only has an IID restriction until mid June. The IID restriction should be in effect until part of the way through October (it was installed in October 2013). Error on the part of the DMV or not, is there any way for me to verify that I can actually have this removed in June?
There is no way to tell whether this was an error, or not, without reviewing your driving record. However, if the...
