    The legal age of consent in the State of Michigan is 16, so technically he shouldn't have an issue. There are exceptions to the general rule; however, you have not provided enough facts in order to assume that this would be one of those exception. Hope that helps.

    In order to properly answer this question it is essential to first review your master driving record. From that point, and if it possible, you will need to begin gathering the items necessary to appeal your revocation. You should contact an attorney who handles these cases, and do not attempt this alone or through the advice of a website. You have been without a license for some time now, and in order to provide you with the best possible chance of obtaining it on your first try you need legal...

  4. MIP was lessened to refusal to take PBT, would another MIP be second offense?

    A second subsequent will only occur if you were convicted of the crime once before. Meaning in your case, you would not be charged under the second subsequent part of the statue unless you actually plead to it. From what you have said you did not plea to an MIP, and thus another MIP would still be considered your first if you were to plea to it or be found guilty of it during the hypothetical second that you are speaking of.

    I would suggest obtaining counsel to help you limit the potential negative impact that comes from charges such as these. A DWLS is a criminal misdemeanor and does create a criminal history for you and your record. Therefore, there is a chance of jail, even with one charge, but the fact that you have multiple DWLS charges means that jail possibility increases. IN order to limit that you need to set yourself up appropriately. Do the right thing and hire counsel, whether private or court appointed....

    You will have to go to both courts since they are violating you. Depending on the judge, the probation officer, and what else you can acquire for a defense will all impact what will happen to you. Since you are doing weekends already you may lose that right. However, its not absolute, nothing is. Therefore, hire counsel and listen to him or her once they have reviewed the entirety of your case(s). Best of luck to you.

    The Alcohol Assessment is essentially a guide for the judge to understand what your alcohol history is, meaning essentially do you show signs of having an alcohol problem based upon answers to certain questions and how can we prevent this (the OWI) from reoccurring. There will be a questionnaire of some length, but each court has their own form, and you will speak with a probation officer of some kind and that individual will create a report that will be submitted to the judge. They will likely...

    You should be able to set-up a payment plan with the Secretary of State for your reinstatement fees, which has been mentioned. However, as also noted, you will not be able to obtain your license until you set-up a payment plan with the SOS. That is a condition. Moreover, you may still be under a suspension, which means you will not be able to obtain a license until your suspension period is finished. The best thing to do is obtain an attorney and determine what exactly it is that you need to do...

    You definitely need the assistance of a criminal defense attorney, whether you want to fight it or not. Miranda is not required in all circumstances, furthermore, how and why were you pulled over? What were the other factual circumstances surrounding the PBT? These are questions that need to be asked. Even if everything is done by the book you still want to have someone who is watching your back and making sure you get the best agreement and/or repercussions if and when you are convicted. Hope...

    You may or may not be tested when you go. Either way, if you are honest with the court and inform them that you may not be clean or negative if you tested that will go a long way rather than withholding the information and risk being tested nonetheless. This is especially true in this case. You were charged for use thus it is logical that you would or may still test positive. It will be ok, but you need to be honest and not mislead the court. In the end, because this is a drug charge I would...
