    I agree with Mr. Edmunds, that if you got a .08, that is the best one to fight. If you hire one of the Best Minnesota DWI Attorney 's, you are very likely to get this reduced to a Careless Driving, at worst. The DWI charges would then be dismissed. Also, it is not clear how /why you would have been sent to detox if you tested a .08, bec that would be very unusual. What county was this in? Contact a highly rated 10.0 Avvo.

    YES (he should fight it). and YES (Payment Plans are available). You didn't say what his final test result was in the new case, or if it was a test refusal (An Unconstitutional crime) But at a .08 PBT he should definitely fight it. My firm and many others offer payment plans. Consult a 10.0 Avvo. rated Criminal Defense atty. for a Free Consult ASAP.

    As the other attys. said, it is highly likely to have this discrepancy between test results, and *not* unusual, If any significant period of time passed between the PBT (roadside Breathylzer) the blood test at the station. You should not be found guilty or plead guilty to a DWI or even careless driving under these circumstances. Consult an experienced a highly rated 10.0 Avvo Defense. atty. ASAP.

    They will go to court in Minnesota. If convicted of a DWI and the implied consent DL Revo is not challenged then it is a 1 year Revo. in MINN OR 1 year on Ignition Interlock, no work permit is available w/o Ignition Interlock. When Colorado finds out about conviction in MN, CO will revoke (for an unknown period of time) but person can't get CO DL reinstated until person is able to drive in MN including paying the $680 reinstatement fee.

    Like Mr. G, I have tried and won a good number of DWI cases, including a felony DWI appeal win in the Minnesota Supreme Court--the first time they had ever overturned a felony DWI conviction. No DWI case is "cut and dried." Whether she can get a careless at a .10 frankly is largely dependent on what county it happened in, which you didn't say. In Ramsey Co. and Henn. Co., a driver can get a temporary reinstatement of her DL while the case is pending. If your daughter was not arrested in either...

    Perjury is a felony, usually punishable by up to 5 years in prison. It is easy to say or "prove" that one person's testimony differed from another's, or from the "truth" but it is very hard to prove that the witness lied or perjured him/herself. In order to commit perjury, the witness would have to knowingly, intentionally testify falsely on a material matter. A person accused of perjury can say he mis-recalled, mis-remembered, forgot, misunderstood, etc., all of which are not lies or perjury....

    Some prosecutors , particulalry outside the Twin Cities area, will seek jail time or community service or STS (picking up trash on side of highway, etc.) for a first offense at a +.20. A first offense Gross Misdemeanor is not an offense typically resulting in deportation, although technically it may render a defendant "deportable." It is NOT a crime of moral turpitude bec. it is not a Sex Crime or a crime of Dishonesty (Like theft, etc.). It Can, however, be considered an aggravated felony...

    This is very sad. But no, there is no such thing as an alcohol-only OFP. You could take him to family court and have him ordered to not be allowed to be around the kids if he has been consuming alcohol. OR it could be a condition of probation if he is convicted of a crime like domestic assault, disorderly conduct, Or DWI, etc.
