  • DUAI - getting WI license

    I received a DUAI from another state, and have since had my license reinstated. I now live in WI, and need to get a WI drivers license. Is a DUAI considered an OWI offense and do I need to disclose it on my application? Will I still be subjuct ...

    Theodore’s Answer

    If you already have the matter closed and you have completed all required conditions of reinstatement in another state, I would find it highly unlikely that Wisconsin would give you any problems with your license. As for application questions, always answer truthfully. The government has a scary amount of information about all of us.

    There is a reason we encourage people to not make statements. Officers use intimidating tactics all the time to elicit incriminating statements from people. In your case, without your statements, the police would have a weaker case. As it stands now, both of you can be charged. Your boyfriend could be charged with drunk driving and you could be charged with obstructing. Both of you will need attorneys going forward to protect your interests and sort this mess out.

  • My license has been revoked in Minnesota and I am moving to Wisconsin.

    My license has been revoked in Minnesota and I am moving to Wisconsin. Will I be able to obtain a Wisconsin driver's license?

    Theodore’s Answer

    The answer is no. You will need to resolve your Minnesota issues before you can get a Wisconsin license. I recommend calling Minnesota to see what you need to do to remove the hold. Once you have removed the hold, you will be able to reinstate in Minnesota and then apply in Wisconsin. Unfortunately, it is a complicated process.

  • Can you get introuble for missing a court date if your serving time in jail?

    My boyfriend is serving time for a OWI. He went in on 2/26 and had court in a different county on 3/3. Since he was serving time he missed his court date. Now that county issued a bench warrant on him. How can he get the warrant dropped and no...

    Theodore’s Answer

    He should not get in trouble. Someone needs to contact the court that issued the warrant and inform the court that he is in custody. The court should be able to run a records check to establish that fact and clear the warrant so that he does not need to be extradited to the county.

  • I was charged with an OWI, the only thing the police officers are going on is that a witness says he saw me driving. Am I guilty

    I was at a mans house on September 27 knocking on his door at 245 am. I had followed him to his house and he called the police. The problem is, I wasn't driving. When the man stated he was going to call the police, my ride left me there. So th...

    Theodore’s Answer

    You are not guilty until you plead guilty or you are found guilty by a judge or jury. In your case, you have a good set of facts to litigate your case. It would be very important to have the person who dropped you off at the house come and testify on your behalf. Ultimately, it will come down to who is a more credible witness and whether the story is reasonable. This case should be tried.

    Theodore’s Answer

    In his position, he could be revoked from parole, in which case, he could be required to serve the remainder of his sentence in custody. If he is not revoked, he will be subject to the sentencing guidelines imposed in the district in which he is charged.

  • Is an oar a probation violation in the state of wisconsin?

    My license was from Illinois and I was given driving previleges back to me but i got pulled over and the officer gave me an oar in the mail not when he pulled me over.

    Theodore’s Answer

    Any infraction is a violation of your rules, presuming you were issued standard rules of supervision. You may want to check to see if you have any holds in any other state regarding your driving privileges. If you are valid in one state, it does not necessarily mean you are valid in every state.

    I would not blindly get on the plane and assume they will let you in when you get there. Take precautions before you leave so that your entry into the country is seamless.

    You will not have your license revoked until you have a disposition on the merits of your case. Until then, you will keep your regular driving privileges.

    Theodore’s Answer

    This is extremely rare. Prosecutors do not amend OWI charges without good reason.
