  • My 26 yr. Old son was arrested for domestic violence for beating up his 30 year old sister. Is there anything she can do tdchar

    Or can it at least get expunged

    Scott’s Answer

    Once charges are brought, it is no longer her decision in terms of what happens although many times the victims say would be taken into account by the prosecutor.

    There are a lot of ways that a charge can either get dismissed outright or after a probationary period.

    Your son's best bet is to get a criminal defense attorney ASAP to help.

  • What would be the penalty for a dwi and suspended license

    The cop followed me home for speeding found out i had a suspended license and gave me a breathalyzer test and it was .25 and arrested me. Had a previous dui 17 years ago

    Scott’s Answer

    In terms of SOS, it would be viewed as a first offense since the previous OWI occurred over 7 years ago. It is likely that you are charged with super drunk which means that there are penalty enhancements.

    What the actual penalty would be would depend on many factors including the judge.

    I'd need to know more before adequately being able to answer your question.

  • Can an attorney withdraw from my case simply because he disagrees with my decision to go to trial?

    I was arrested over 2 years ago for a DUI, and the case is still pending. I am searching for a new lawyer and should be going to trial within 2 months. I paid my attorney a good amount of money as a flat rate to include everything up til trial, wi...

    Scott’s Answer

    I'd consider a careless driving a HUGE win. You'd be foolish not to take a civil infraction with the risk of having a OWI on your record.

    Your attorney has the right to withdraw. If you still wanted to go forward with this case at trial, I'm sure there would be many people willing to take it to trial for an additional fee.

    If you came to me, I'd take it to trial, but make sure that you understood how foolish it would be not to take the civil infraction.

  • I was charged with 2nd OWI in Farmington MI, but I live in Howell Mi, can I still be eligible for sobriety court in Farmington?

    I made a careless decision, & I need the help to hold me accountable for being sober & keep my license because I was recently promoted to management of a well known company & need to have a license. I am a good citizen that works 2 jobs & currentl...

    Scott’s Answer

    Most likely not, unless sobriety court is available in Howell. What I am sure about is that you need to speak with an attorney ASAP. A qualified attorney can do things like FOIA video tape evidence and take steps necessary to mount a defense or speak to the judge at sentencing with regards to mitigating factors.

  • Do you think I will get any jail time if I am convicted of attempted resisting and obstructing an officer?

    I have a clean record. I am facing an attempting resisting and obstructing charge. I know that it will be discretionary with the judge, but what do you think my punishment will be? I am just looking for guesses based on your experience. I really ...

    Scott’s Answer

    No attorney can begin to answer this question with the limited information you have given. I'd need to know what court you were in and the facts behind the case.

    Most criminal defense attorneys offer free consultations. If you do not already have an attorney I recommend calling one ASAP.

    Scott’s Answer

    You need to hire a criminal defense attorney asap. Someone who focuses on OWIs (DUIS) will be able to let you know all of your options and thoroughly investigate your case.

    They will also be able to FOIA the appropriate discovery before that discovery is lost (like the dash cameras)

    Scott’s Answer

    Violation of probation can be extremely serious. Especially in 48th district court. Small things elsewhere often lead to jail time in that court.

    I'd hire an attorney ASAP!

    Scott’s Answer

    Much depends on many factors including your judge and what it is plead down to. Since you are under 21 years of age, the BAC level needed is far less than .08. This does not mean that your case can't be fought though.

    I'd contact a DUI/OWI attorney ASAP

    Scott’s Answer

    It is very possible that this could be an issue. Usually though for someone using prior to being placed on bond, a judge can understand that you will test positive but will use the beginning test as a bench mark to check that the results have fallen in future tests.
