How hard is it to fight a OWI charge for prescription medication in you're system In the state of Wisconsin?
In april of 2012 I was prescribed ambien by my doctor. It caused me to get up and sleep drive with out even knowing it. I don't remember a thing but I crashed my car and refused to take a roadside test. The DA offered 10 days jail time, 2 years probation, $500 fine, and revoked DL for a year. I think thats way to harsh and want to fight this. I also read on the FDA website, as of May this year the FDA placed more on the warning label about sleep driving, and are telling doctors to cut doses in half. It also said from 2007 to 2012 the FDA has recived over 700 reports of sleep driving. What are the odds of fighting this. Since WI looks at all OWI's the same way.
You should contact an attorney to discuss further as you may have possible defenses. Good luck.
Min-max jail time for charges of fleeing, 4th owi, reckless endangerment resulting in a accident. (He hit a tree)
This will be his second fleeing in his criminal history. And he was doing high speeds through town. Mental state at the time was suicide. He was the only one in the truck.
You need to sit down with a WI lawyer to assess this. The worst case is clearly years in prison. Some quick internet...
I got a DUI. If I offer to install a IID for a period of time and go to an alcohol counselor could I get the charge reduced?
I got a DUI a few days back. It's my first, and I guarantee my only because of how terrible I feel about it. I have no intention of drinking any time soon. I've never had anything more than a few simple traffic violations. I've never been much of a drinker. I went out with the intention of crashing at some friends places. Things turned ugly that night and I don't remember everything but I obviously ended up driving. If I try and offer up installing an Ignition Interlock Device and going to counseling would it be possible for the prosecutor to reduce or drop charges.
Not likely. Get a lawyer. Wis. Stat. s. 967.055 (2) Dismissing or amending charge. (a) Notwithstanding s. 971....
So i was drunk at a downtown bar and i somehow went to the bars basement and urinated im the corner. Nobody saw that but the cops came and arrested me and took me in. I posted my bail and was let out. My question is if my citation says court not mandatory does that mean if i pay the fine I am ol and won't have to go to court? Im not from that city.
That's probably what that means. Call the court clerk during business hours and ask. Be more careful in the future...
My daughter was babysitting and the man who drove her home was arrested for a DUI. Can I sue him for reckless endangerment?
She was in the vehicle with him and was not hurt. They were pulled over before they were too far downt he road. She was scared but not injured
Problem is there were no damages, so what exactly would you be suing for? Further, did your daughter get in the car...
Do you have to waive your rights to an attorney in order to talk to a prosecutor over a criminal citation against you do you?
Driving after OWR first offene. OWR was result of OWI.
If you have an attorney, or express an intent to obtain an attorney, the prosecutor cannot ethically speak to you....
I am being charged with an OWI that occurred 5/27/14. I am set for a court date on 7/8/14. I am unsure if I should get a lawyer or not. I was stopped originally for a headlight that had burned out that evening. While I keep seeing that the fines are supposed to be from one to three hundred dollars, my ticket deposit says $911 and there is no way I can gather that much money in a month. Everything I see tells me that is way over and around a first or second offense worth of cash. It is even listed that My operating while intoxicated is a first offense (muni). I don't have very much money, and am unsure as to how to proceed or what I should do.
If you are unsure if you should get a lawyer, that means that you need one, and are better off getting one sooner...
