It sounds like you've been suspended administratively for testing over .08, either because you failed to request a hearing, or because the suspension was sustained by a DOT hearing examiner. In addition to speeding you are charged with driving while too impaired by your consumption of alcohol to safely do so, and driving with an alcohol level at .08 or higher. With a .14 test, you'll either need to get the test suppressed, convince the trier of fact that the result is incorrect, or that it doesn't accurately represent your alcohol concentration at the time of driving. Odds aren't great in any event, but the chance that you'll be able to do this without the help of a lawyer is slim to none. If you are already administratively suspended, you have delayed far too long already. Consult a lawyer immediately.See question
A simple battery under sec. 940.19(1) is a misdemeanor, so unless it was a crime of domestic violence, conviction for which would trigger a federal prohibition on the possession of firearms, WI law would not prohibit possession of a firearm even if you had been convicted. If the charge was dismissed, and you are not otherwise prohibited from possessing a firearm by virtue of a prior conviction for a felony, or a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence as defined by federal law, a restraining order, or a mental health commitment, you should pass the required background check. If you are not sure what your record looks like, you can check with the WI DOJ. https://www.doj.state.wi.us/dles/cib/crime-information-bureauSee question
Which should I fill out if I'm looking to get sole custody for an abused child? And have to prove the other patent unfit?
This is a question for a family lawyer, not a civil litigator. I have changed the practice area to try and help get you an appropriate response. It seems unlikely, however, that general advice from a free Q & A site is going to be sufficient in such a serious matter, and chances are you'll need to hire a family lawyer.See question
I have a vehicle registered in my name, but I only have ever had my instructions permit. Legally, if I recall correctly, I can drive the car as long as someone with a valid drivers license for 2 or more years is in the car. There have been multipl...
Stops where there are two people in the car, and no observed traffic violations could probably be challenged if a citation results. Stops with a single person other than you driving are probably justified if the person driving looks similar to you, but may be subject to challenge if the person driving the vehicle looks nothing like you. Unfortunately, if officers are using this as a pretext to stop because they have some other interest in you or your acquaintances, as long as the technical basis for the stop is arguably good, they are allowed to make such stops. Seems like the easiest way to stop this practice would be to simply get your license, and take away the pretext for the stops.See question
I received an OWI 2nd back in August of 2011. I am trying to get it reduced to reckless driving since I've heard that expungement in Wisconsin is rare. (I'm trying to switch to Active Army from National Guard, and can't with two on my record.) ...
Unless the mental health issues are severe enough to support an NGI plea, which seems unlikely, no, they will not provide a defense. OWI is not an intent crime, so all the State needs to prove is that you operated a motor vehicle on a public highway, and at the time you were too impaired to safely do so, or had a prohibited alcohol concentration. Defense of OWI cases is not a do it yourself project. Consult an experienced OWI defense lawyer. Good luck.See question

Winter parking restrictions are quite common throughout WI in communities large and small. Many communities will tow vehicles parked in violation of those restrictions. There is no inherent right to park on the public streets overnight. I would suggest discussing off-street parking with your landlord, Good luck.See question

In all likelihood, you can't. Police have no actionable affirmative duty to protect anyone from the actions of a third party, and also enjoy qualified immunity from suit.See question

You can't stop opposing counsel from objecting. The real question is whether the evidence you seek to offer is relevant and admissible. A free Q & A website can't teach you the rules of evidence. There are limits on the use of prior conduct to impeach, and specific rules governing impeachment with a prior criminal conviction. Even if you have the appropriately authenticated certified copy of the criminal judgment of conviction, you are required to raise the issue in advance of trial to give the judge the opportunity to determine whether it has any probative value, and if so, whether any such probative value is outweighed by unfair prejudice, or possible confusion of the issues. If the issue being litigated is important to you, hire a lawyer.See question
No prior convections, probation violation from Arkansas. Fugitive
Yes, they can. Once picked up on the warrant here, she will sit in jail here while the extradition process plays out, and they get around to coming to get her. She's then likely in for long, unpleasant ride chained to the wall of a short bus that may make several other stops on its way to Arkansas, where she will sit until she can get on the court docket there. As has already been suggested, she should hire a lawyer in Arkansas and arrange to turn in on better terms.See question
