I agree, as mentioned below, that you should be careful receiving advice from out of state attorneys.
It is always best to at least speak with an attorney prior to resolving anything in court on your own. Even though an OWI-1st is a civil matter, it has powerful and far-reaching implications that could affect your life for years to come.
I suggest speaking with an attorney before making up your mind on whether or not to proceed with counsel.
In general, landlords with "no pet policies" can be asked to make a reasonable accommodation to their policy if that includes allowing people with service animals to live on the premises as tenants. Denying them the opportunity to reside there because of the service animal may be discriminatory.
I would suggest contacting a lawyer and at least discussing with him or her over the phone. You need to determine what impact this will have from your employer, who may have its own position on these issues.
Qualified, local counsel can often obtain more favorable results than if you just walked in and tried to work it out on your own.
I am not sure of what the question was here, however I assume you're asking if this was legal? I would need to know more about what occurred here, such as the situation and your distance to the school.

Amending the charge means that the original charge is converted to a new one. Disorderly conduct in Wisconsin carries a maximum jail sentence of 90 days. Retail theft carries a maximum of 9 months....
You definitely need to contact a local attorney. Since it sounds like no formal criminal charges have been issued yet, an attorney may be able to stop charges from being issued, or at least can give you a head start on dealing with them. You are 17 years old, so you should probably be honest with your parents, especially since they could help you in retaining an attorney.
The simple answer is yes. The county could charge that person with any number of crimes based on a "lie." The county would need to use that person's statements to support the charge. Usually, a prosecutor would look for something more than just one persons statement; they'd likely want more corroborating evidence.
You need to be more specific here. What rights do you want back? Certainly there are certain civil rights, such as the right to vote, that are restored upon the completion of your sentence. However, since you are a convicted felon, you cannot possess any firearms.
