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.

Can I write a letter to a Judge asking to forgive the IID penalty after completing the 3yr suspension, so I can get my license.
The only vehicle I own doesn't run. A vehicle can be provided to me through my work but other people need to drive it as well. I also need to drive other vehicles for work. I have completed everything the court has required except for the IID.
You may be able to get your non-running vehicle exempted, but that won't remove the restriction from your license, and...

Can the state of wi force you to donate $3000 to MADD after getting a DUI?
this a 3rd offense
That does not sound like an appropriate sentence, nor something that should be authorized as restitution.
I have 2 citations that are due 12/08/2014. I was told that I could come in and set up possible payment plans.
If I go in on the 8th, is that to late for me to set up payments? Does it become a warrant that day or the 9th?
