  • First time DuI/DwI offense

    Edited: I made a mistake by drinking and driving. I got pulled over and arrested for a DWI. My license is also suspended too so I was already driving on a suspended license but I don't know if I am charged for that. I blew a .01% what should I do?...

    Scott’s Answer

    Most likely you blew a .10 not a .01. Regardless, the absolute best thing you can do is get an attorney asap. There are certain things that need to be done immediately (including preserving the dash cam/ data master video tapes). Most OWI attorneys offer free consultations.

  • Planning on pursing a bachelors in criminal justice, successfully completed hyta what are my chances of landing a job?

    my charges where felony assault with deadly weapon and assault and battery

    Scott’s Answer

    If HYTA is completed, there should be no record of the offense and it should be as if it never occurred. It should therefore have no effect on your future job prospects.

    I would however check michigan.gov/ICHAT and order a copy of your criminal record to make absolutely sure they hid the charges as they should have. You'd be amazed how often that is messed up.

  • I am in outside of USA. If he sets up a restraining order or domestic violence complaint against me, how can I fount it oversea?

    I am married U.S. citizen for about 4 and 1/2 years and I have permanent residency. We became very difficult to each other once we got a house about 3 years ago. -- We have lived in Canton, MI since then. As a result, I was arrested twice ...

    Scott’s Answer

    You can fight a restraining order through an attorney if you are unavailable. If you are charged with Domestic Violence, court attendance may be mandatory.

    Also please limit what you say about your case on a public forum. This is especially true with regards to any physical activity against your spouse. It can be used against you.

  • How much does a federal lawyer cost

    Not a rob me blind price

    Scott’s Answer

    It depends on the case. Usually it is significantly more expensive than a state case. Often times you will be quoted above 10k as it is always a significant amount of work.

    You need to call and ask around.

  • I got a ticket for OWI 2nd & was told to contact the court within 20 days? But they don't have any record of me.

    I was ticketed for OWI 2nd in March 2014 & was told to contact the court in 20 days for my court date. It's been over 20 days & every time I've called they say there's no record & are you sure it's the right court? What does this mean? I am worrie...

    Scott’s Answer

    It could likely mean that they haven't had it in the system yet. This is especially normal for OWIs where blood work is involved.

    While you are probably okay with the court (as long as you keep checking), you need to get an attorney to FOIA dash-cam evidence and do other things as well. Sometimes the tapes get written over as soon as 30 days after the date. OWIs stay on your record forever if convicted.

    Hire an attorney that focuses on OWI/DUIs ASAP.

  • How long does a DUI stay on your record in Michigan?

    I had a DUI back in 1989. Can it still be counted against me in 2013?

    Scott’s Answer

    Assuming you have another OWI, for Secretary of State purposes it will be viewed as your first offense. You should know that, even though it occurred in 1989, OWIs stay on your record forever.

    You should also know that if you got an OWI in West Bloomfield, 48th District court is one of the most difficult courts in the country on OWI offenses. If you plead guilty you may be looking at jail time.

    You should hire a OWI/DUI attorney ASAP. Certain evidence needs to be preserved as soon as possible.

  • Been on probation for 3 months,& a few days ago I blew a 0.05 and now have a court date for a VOP. What do you think will happen

    I was arrested about a year ago for a dui stop, and assaulted an officer in the process. I went to court 4 months ago, and due to them losing the blood they drew, I was only charged with a misdemeanor for assaulting the officer. I received 1 year ...

    Scott’s Answer

    Much depends on which court. In some courts, VOPs are not as big of a deal as other courts. Your question indicates you are in West Bloomfield. If this is where the incident occurred, you are in 48th district court. That is one of the most difficult courts around on VOPs.

    Regardless of where it occurred. I STRONGLY suggest that you find competent legal counsel.
