I was recently stopped and taken to jail where I had two .07 readings on the Datamaster. Despite the numbers being under .08, my license was destroyed and I was issued a paper license. The Secretary of State site indicates that license may be dest...
Being over .08 is only one way to prove a drunk driving charge. They can still do it without it, though it is more difficult. Make sure you contact a good OWI attorney such as Mr. Austin. This is not something you want to do on your own. You need someone who is going to do a thorough investigation and look for all possible defenses. I wish you the best.See question
Crossing highway coming off a trail ride crashed in drainage ditch first offence. I am 62 yrs. old. Was on an atv.
You have not asked a question but let me tell you this:
You can be charged with an OWI offense (Operating While Intoxicated). If you were, do NOT discuss the matter with anyone but an OWI lawyer. Simply because you were over the limit does not mean you are guilty so I urge you to plead NOT GUILTY and contact an OWI Attorney right away.
I have had 3 OWI cases dismissed this summer and am working on an interesting case right now that hopefully will get dismissed. I once had a case where my client's blood test result was .14% but the jury found him not guilty because it could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that he was operating a vehicle at the time his BAC was that high. The reason I mention this is not to tell you your case will automatically be dismissed, because I have had many client's who end up with some kind of conviction, but to tell you that every case is different. OWI cases are very fact-specific. What I mean by this is that by retaining an OWI lawyer who will dig deep into your case and investigate every aspect of it could be the difference between a conviction and an acquittal. Do yourself a favor and call an OWI Attorney right away. I wish you the best.
Over 6 years have passed since the conviction. Been clean since and also prior to the conviction I never had a criminal record.
I agree with these other fine attorneys. Driving convictions, including an OWI, cannot be set aside (expunged). It will be on your driving record for life because if you get 3 OWI convictions in a lifetime, you will be charged with a felony (for the third offense). The fact that you have a clean record other than the OWI six years ago, you likely will not have too much trouble getting a job. I wish there was a better answer for you. I wish you the best.
arrested for OWI,3rd time, hitting 2 Park cars, i refused the breath test +they took blood,they held me for 24 hours then let me go, no bond, pending further investigation, that was 17 days ago, how long do they have to charge or arrest me?
The police and prosecutor are waiting for the results of your blood test which takes a few weeks. It could be back any day now. After they get the results, you will be charged if the results are over .08%. You need to get a good OWI attorney now - even before the results come back so he or she can begin investigating your case. Also, if you refused to take a DataMaster test (Breath test after arrest) you only have 14 days to request a hearing with the Secretary of State or your driver's license will automatically be suspended for at least 1 year. This is separate from your criminal case and not all attorneys handle Implied Consent Refusal Hearings so make sure you ask the attorneys you interview. There are more issues to cover so call an OWI attorney today. Good Luck!See question
If a woman won't stop hitting a man and he defends himself by groping her chest, is this sexual assault and can he be convicted?
I've never heard of someone groping another person in self-defense. While you are allowed to use reasonable force to defend yourself, groping a woman's chest is not likely to be considered self-defense. that being said, you really need to get a good criminal defense attorney to investigate all the facts and help you. Good Luck!See question
I'm 18 years of age and around a week ago I was involved in a car crash. I was in the passenger side of the vehicle and the accident was not our fault. however the officer asked my friend, the driver, how much he smoked that day. the conversation ...
Absolutely, yes you should get a lawyer. Do not speak about this to anyone but a lawyer. Good Luck!See question
On saturday night i left the bar at 1:30 am to drive to a nearby hotel. While checking my gps a blew out my tire on a curb in a mall parking lot i immediately called onstar to have my tire changed. They said they would be a couple hours so i put m...
Absolutely yes it is possible. I have had 3 OWI cases dropped to careless driving since June and am working on another one right now that may end up that way. Your BAC is only one of the several elements that a prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt in order to convict you. All too often the police and prosecutors seem to forget about the other elements and only focus on the BAC. As a former police officer, a licensed private investigator, and an OWI attorney, I think every element of the charge must be thoroughly investigated in order to properly defend a client. Keep in mind that every case is different and so there is no way to give you a better answer without more information so make sure you contact an OWI attorney right away and do not speak to anyone else. I wish you the best. - EdSee question
Can you get a DUI on a horse? Is it called a DUI or something else? And, does it matter if you're riding horseback or operating a buggy?
No. To be convicted of Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) in Michigan, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. With that in mind, if you are drunk on horseback, or drunk and operating a horse driven carriage, expect the police to come up with something to arrest you (drunk and disorderly, etc.). Also, if you cause injury or death to someone else while doing so, you could be held civilly liable. I hope this helps a bit.See question
