My vehicle was stolen july 31st out of my drive way. It was located burned in the city of detroit. I have talked to a few detectives over the phone about 4x thats it. All the other times I get no answer and I just received notice from insirance co...
I agree with the other attorneys that you should retain an attorney to represent you. Not simply because it is taking longer than you like, but because they are investigating a crime and they could be suspecting you. Also, you may want to consider filing a complaint with the insurance bureau.

I crashed my truck a mile from my house, into the woods. No other person or vehicle was involved. Perviously my record was spotless, driving and criminal. I proceeded to have my friends pick me up and take me home, where I started drinking because...
I agree with these other fine attorneys. This is not something to take lightly. If convicted, it will forever be on your record and will cost you plenty more in collateral consequences over the years such as, loss of driving privilege, loss of job, inability to obtain new job, high insurance rates, etc. Therefore it is imperative to find the money and hire an OWI attorney.
Each case is different and there are many more things to investigate than just your BAC. I have had quite a few cases dismissed where my client's BAC was over the legal limit but the police made other errors. You have raised some issues that need to be looked at but there are others that your attorney will want to dig into as well.
DO NOT say anything else to the police or prosecutor. Plead NOT GUILTY and get a lawyer right away.
I wish you the best.
I have recently received notices to go pay a speeding ticket I received about two months ago. I got a new job two weeks ago and my employer asked for a print out of my driving record, i went to the secretary of state and got one like they told me ...
It may not be on your driving record yet because you haven't paid for it. However, by not paying for it, your license may get suspended and a warrant for your arrest may be issued. Get the tint off your windows or you will keep getting pulled over and if your license is suspended or a warrant is issued, you will be arrested. They do not have to tell you ahead of time that your license is suspended or a warrant is issued so you may just find yourself in jail. I wish you the best.See question
Am 63 and have never had a ticket or traffic accident or in any trouble. I went to a friends 25 year anniversary party had some punch and after a couple of hours I left. She lives an hour away and it was dark and found myself lost and afraid. H...
You need a good OWI attorney to help you through this. It is important that you do not discuss the case with anyone except an attorney. You did the right thing by pleading not guilty but you need to have your case properly investigated by someone who knows what to look for on OWI cases. If you cannot afford an attorney, tell the court right away and ask for a court appointed attorney. Do not go to your next court appointment without an attorney otherwise you will have to talk to the prosecutor. If you have an attorney, the prosecutor is prohibited from speaking to you. I wish you the best.See question
I had a small claims judgement against me on 08-23-2016 and on 09-03-2016 I received a statement showing finance charges on it.
The plaintiff is allowed to add interest to the unpaid balance at the rate set by the State Supreme Court. A week after the judgment would not likely be much, if anything (depending on the amount of the judgment). The plaintiff cannot add their own finance charges or any other interest rate. I hope this helps.See question
Today at a gas station I forgot to detach the gas nozzle/hose from my vehicle after pumping gas. The hose detached from the station. I explained what happened to the worker & asked what to do. He said "Oh don't worry about it, it happens often. I'...
Yes, you are liable because you caused the damage. The clerk allowing you to leave does not affect your liability. Report it to your insurance company as that is why you buy insurance. Good luck!See question
A 16 year old h school student Abel to have sex with a 25 year old man?
Maybe. While 16 years old is the age of consent in Michigan, that does not automatically mean the 25 year old will not be charged with a crime. If the 25 year old is in a position of authority, such as a teacher, police officer, therapist, etc, or is related to the 16 year old, or if the 16 year old is not mentally competent, the 25 year old could be charged. Also, even if the 16 year old can legally consent to sex, he or she is still considered a child as it relates to child pornography. If the 25 year old takes or receives photos of a sexual nature of anyone under 18 years old, the 25 year old could be charged with child pornography related offenses. Waiting two years for the child to become an adult is much better than spending a lifetime on the sex offender registry.See question
My husband and I let a "friend" borrow our car for an hour. Turns out the guy drives the car on a dirt road and blows the clutch. He paid to have it towed to a friends shop but he is refusing to pay for the damage he caused. How can we ensure he p...
First, lemon law is not the proper category for this question, lemon law has more to do with the poor manufacture of an automobile than with the mechanical breakdown at the hands of a friend. But to your question, no, simply because someone drives your car for an hour does not necessarily mean they are responsible for mechanical breakdowns. If you feel he is responsible and he disagrees, you may sue him in small claims court. If the judge agrees, you would have a judgment against him. Collecting then becomes another issue.
Keep in mind that convincing the judge that it is your friend's fault that the clutch went out after only an hour's drive is your burden. I wish you the best.See question
Injured in auto accident
Your question is a bit confusing. Are you saying that you were injured in an auto accident and as a result, were unable to work? You are self-employed and although the business made money, there was not enough for you to get paid from the company. Is this what you are saying?
If so, look on Avvo and contact an attorney who handles cases that involve Michigan No-Fault Insurance. These can be tricky and so you need to call the right lawyer. Steve Gursten is in your area and is probably one of the smartest and best lawyers in that field.

There was a situation on Facebook today and i was contacted by the 14 year old girl and she kept contacting me for a while now and I found out my account was hacked and my relationship status said i was in a relationship with her. Now i had been c...
Cut off all contact from her and do not speak to ANYONE except an attorney. Before you know it, you could be arrested and charged with CSC crimes (Criminal Sexual Conduct) even if you never met the girl. If she says you had sexual contact with her you can be arrested. Then, if she tells the jury you did it, you can be convicted. It is VERY important that you don't say ANYTHING. Do not even tell "your version" of events to the police. They will say, "all we want to do is get your version." Don't do it, they will trick you into saying something that you cannot take back. If you sent her any photos of a sexual nature, or if she sent you any, you can be arrested and charged as well.
It is my understanding that in order to be have a "in an relationship" with someone status on Facebook, both parties must agree to it - but I could be wrong. Even so, the likelihood of the police believing that your account was hacked is not very good. They hear that a lot and they generally do not believe it. For that reason, remember - DO NOT TELL YOUR SIDE OF THE STORY! Now be prepared to retain a good criminal defense attorney who regularly handles CSC cases.
