    The real issue here is the refusal to test, which is a crime. If an officer has probable cause to believe you were operating a motor vehicle intoxicated- he may request a test at the station. It is a gross misdemeanor to refuse such a test. A running vehicle is problematic since the law prohibits any operation of the vehicle - not just driving per we. There is also a civil license revocation. This is a separate matter with similar defenses. You have 30 days after notice of the revocation...

    Statutes of Limitation are terms of years, not months. You should retain experienced counsel. Many lawyers on AVVO will offer a FREE initial consultation. You would be wise to take advantage of it.

    On a probation violation, you may deny the obligation and move it to a Morrissey hearing where you can contest a violation occurred. If a violation is found or admitted, the court has a great many options, which is why you should be represented by counsel. The court may add additional probationary conditions. It may also impose all or part of any jail time previously stayed.

    First, there is no prosecution unless you are charged with a a crime. Second, what seems to have occurred here is that you have a license that is still revoked in another state based on fairly old DWI offenses. If you never reinstated in Michigan, Minnesota will not renew or issue a new license so long as you are revoked in another state. If they did not catch it when you first got your license, they will still decline to renew if the find it subsequently. you should consult with a...

    It is difficult to advise you without knowing far more about the case.

    It is not unusual and the charges are well within the statutory limitation period. Such delays often happen when the alcohol test performed is a blood or urine test. Remember, he has only a limited period of time to contest any license revocation which runs from the date he receives a notice of revocation. This is a separate and distinct action from the criminal case. he should retain counsel immediately.

    Multiple Driving without a license violations usually will result in a jail sentence if there is a conviction. The person charged would be very wise to retain legal counsel. A new conviction would also result in a new cancellation of that license.

    Your case would have to be reviewed to determine what defenses apply. However, you can be charged with a DWI if the officer has reason to believe that you are under the influence of alcohol or other narcotics. The observations of the officer may be critical in that regard. You must contact an attorney immediately to review the specifics of your case.
