    If the vehicle is, in fact, forfeited, it will be subject to the lien. Meaning, if the prosecutorial jurisdiction decided to keep it, which is unlikely in your scenario, they would be responsible to pay the lien. However, what is more likely, the vehicle would be returned to the lien holder and then the lien holder would sell the vehicle, but you may be responsible for any loss they may take on the sale. Also, this could have a negative impact on your credit. You should contact an attorney...

    I'm sorry this happened to you, but you should contact a DUI attorney here in Minnesota to discuss your options. Did you take a test at the police station? If so, what was the result. The fact that you received a 180 day revocation notice indicates to me that you did and the BAC was a .08 or more but less than .16. You do have the right to challenge this revocation, but there are time limits. The attorney you contact can review this with you. Good Luck!

    If you are saying June of 2013, then you are still within the statute of limitations for potential misdemeanor related criminal charges. Quite certain they are awaiting the results of your blood test. You should be aware that there are some possible defenses that exist if you are charged. I would suggest reaching out to an attorney for a meeting. I attached a link for a little more information that me be helpful to you. With regard to marijuana, it is not enough that it is in your system...

    There are many people for which having a Careless Driving as opposed to a DWI conviction on their record is extremely important. This could be for specific employment issues or other reasons. With regard to the revocation period, as already stated, it sounds as if this may be your first alcohol related offense or DUI charge? If this is the case, you are eligible for work permit after 15 days of a hard revocation. If you were represented by an attorney, you should contact he or she if there...

    I believe it is very important to at least meet with a lawyer to describe the facts of your case. What you may believe is a "cut and dry" case to the untrained eye, may actually turn out to be more significant.

    I agree..you seem to be reading your test results incorrectly. I assume you are reading off the DataMaster printout of your breath test result. There are several numbers on this print out, but there are two particular readings that refer to your two breath test results. For this reason, and the other reasons you state above, you should give an attorney a call and set up an appointment to review all of your documents for a better assessment of your situation.

    My advice is to contact an attorney that has quite a bit of experience in this area to discuss the specific facts with regard to your case. This legal issue is also rather complicated and would have to be discussed in more detail. Many attorneys offer a free consultation either by telephone or in-person.

    Yes...as long as your criminal conviction was within 10 years of the date of your current offense. To be clear, If you plead guilty to the DWI, then your conviction date would be the actual date you were sentenced for the DWI and not just the date you plead guilty. However, in most DWI cases, an individual is sentenced the day they plea. However, in some counties, the court may require a PSI and return for sentencing. In those cases, your conviction date would be the date you returned and...

    As has been stated, your issue is probably still with Michigan. It appears to me that once you are reinstated in Michigan, Minnesota would then to have no reason to deny you. Good luck!

    Well...your issue appears to be two-fold. If you are still within your one year of the stay, obviously being convicted of the DWI, assuming remaining law abiding was a condition, would potentially result in the revoking of the stay of adjudication which would result in a conviction for the assault. This could be compounded by the potential result of a DWI conviction. My advice is to obtain the assistance of an attorney. Good Luck!
