I was sitting in car after bar closed with a friend listening to music very loud- I was tipsy. The car was in parked position. my friend was in passenger seat- Cop pulled behind car and question me drinking - I admitted to drinking as I didn't want to lie he took both of our drivers liscenced back to car- had me get out of car talked to me told me it was wrong to be sitting in car even if im not driving. He did not do breath test OR any sobriety testing. I did NOT refuse tests- the cop simply did not do them. He did not give me a written warning but told me to find a ride to take me home. he gave our liscence back . Can I still get summoned to court I am SO scared.
You CAN, but it's almost guaranteed that you won't. Without FST's, a breath test or an observation of the vehicle...
Double Jeopardy?? My reasoning is based on single criminal episode. "The order of dismissal concludes that in pleading to the civil traffic infraction, Knowles admitted an essential fact necessary for proof of the DUI charge: that Knowles was in control of the vehicle for both offenses. Thus, Grady v. Corbin, 495 U.S. 508, 110 S.Ct. 2084, 109 L.Ed.2d 548 (1990) bars the subsequent criminal prosecution. The order notes that characterization of the two proceedings as civil or criminal is not a determinative factor for purposes of double jeopardy analysis. See United States v. Halper, 490 U.S. 435, 109 S.Ct. 1892, 104 L.Ed.2d 487 (1989)."
No, pleading to a seat belt violation does not in any possible way bar a subsequent prosecution for OVI.

it was a second DUI offense, last one was 3 months away from being 6 years ago and it was also the morning after while I was driving home from a party. The prosecutor sentenced me to 10 days jail and 1 year license suspension. On the day of the sentencing the judge didn't go with that, instead changed it to 2 years license suspension. I just wanted to know if it was too late to fight that since the judge sentenced me or if theres a way to get it back down to 1 year.

He is 18 and was not caught drinking in the stadium. We live in Ohio, he attends Eastern Kentucky Univ, and he was visiting with friends for the weekend. He is in the Homeland Security programs at EKU and his intent is work for one of several Government Agencies, DEA, ICE, etc.. As I review the paperwork he was given, I can not determine 1) if he was arrested, booked, or just cited and paid the fee to be released. This happened on 9/20/14 and his court date is 10/3/14. It will very tough for him either our son, or us to appear in court to refute these charges. I am not at all familiar with Wisconsin Law and need some advice as to how we should proceed. Please advise us on on best next steps. Thanks
The next best step and the only step to take now is to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney in Madison, WI...
