    A first offense DWI i still a serious offense. As a result, it is ALWAYS wise to have counsel. At a minimum, it is a fourth degree offense. A fourth degree offense is a misdemeanor which carries with it maximum possible penalties of 90 days in jail and a $1 ,000 fine. As a result, it is important to present an aggressive defense. It is also important to know and understand the Judge's and their proclivities in your county. A DWI is not only a criminal case, it has a civil element...

    The facts you relate seem extremely unusual. As a result, much more would have to be known about your situation. However, if you were not taken to the station, a mobile DWI unit or a medical center and asked to provide a breath, blood or urine test, chances are that it is your lucky day. Without a valid test for alcohol, it is unlikely charges can or will be filed. The preliminary breath test (PBT) given at the scene cannot be used in a trial for DWI and serves only to provide the...

    Yes, you may be charged after an accident if there is probable cause to believe you were impaired while operating your vehicle. There may, however, be many defenses. You may challenge whether there was a basis to seek a blood test. Moreover, a current case that has been heard before the Supreme Court, Missouri v. McNeely, calls into question whether law enforcement may seek a blood test without having a warrant for that test. For a FREE consultation call 612.240.8005.

    That is certainly a scam. The Department of Justice does not act that way and whoever operates that site is preying on the fear of naive internet browsers. In fact, after a review of different listings on the internet, it appears you may have a virus that is part of the scam on your computer - see http://forums.anvisoft.com/viewtopic-54-4861-0.html Here is a warning about this scam and virus from the FBI - http://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2012/august/new-internet-scam Maury D....

    Yes. If you are asked, you must answer honestly. It is not likely compensable in a Conciliation Court action if you were paid by your employer.

    Penalties would depend on many things including the particular facts of your case. You would be wise to seek a chemical assessment in most cases, but without a review, it is difficult to determine what defenses may exists and the proper course of action. WIth a BAC of .20 or more, at a minimum, your case is a third degree offense. A third degree offense is a gross misdemeanor which carries with it maximum possible penalties of ONE year in jail and a $3,000 fine. If convicted, there are...

    First, whether or not you violated probationary conditions would depend on the conditions imposed. Second, if you did violate those conditions, it is likely to be reported by law enforcement to the probation officer. Once that occurs, you may admit or deny the violation; seek a hearing on the violation; and/or present the court with arguments elated to possible repercussions. You should retain counsel for any probation violation.
