  • Could license privileges be reinstated by contacting the DA?

    My girlfriend was brought to court on a first offense truancy charge shortly after the school ended. She was not allowed to just pay the ticket and was sentenced to a number of community service hours. On top of that her nonexistent driver's licen...

    Theodore’s Answer

    It sounds like you need to correct the record. I would call the DMV and make an inquiry as to why the license is suspended. The workers will tell you what needs to happen before the license can be reinstated. Once you determine why the license is suspended you can approach the city or district attorney to see if that person would object to reopening the case and resolving it differently to avoid a charge that would carry a license suspension with it. From the sound of it, I do not think that is very likely. While you may disagree with the penalty, it is none the less the law and your girlfriend needs to comply with the order so she can obtain her license as quickly as possible.

    Until she is 18, it is statutory rape. Where you take it from there is entirely up to you. Understand that there is a huge risk when having a relationship with any girl who is underage.

  • I received an underage drinking ticket in Sauk County WI. Is it likely to be able to get the citation dropped and pay the fee?

    8 friends had a case of beer in the state park. We had three, and a state ranger came by and asked us if we were underage and we had been drinking. We said yes. He made us dump the rest and issued us tickets. He said we were very cooperative and m...

    You essentially sealed your fate by answering the ranger's questions. I would recommend asking the prosecutor for a deferred resolution whereby you attend alcohol related education classes in exchange for the citation being dismissed or amended.

    Theodore’s Answer

    If you are on probation with a no contact order, you will need to go through your probation officer to have it lifted. It is going to be difficult, but if you are committed to it, you will ultimately succeed. You will more than likely be required to attend counseling and other programming before the order will be lifted. This is a big responsibility that you are taking on and I would highly recommend substantial counseling to properly prepare you for the great responsibility you are assuming.

  • What happens when you receive a 5th underage drinking ticket in Wisconsin?

    What happens with jail time, is it a felony? Does the person who received the 5th underage serve time after the ticket is paid or only if they get caught again for underage drinking?

    Theodore’s Answer

    Generally underage drinking tickets are municipal violations that do not expose you to jail time. Eventually, if you accumulate enough of these tickets, the State may want to prosecute you for Disorderly Conduct, or some other low level offense. If you have 5 underage tickets, you are clearly doing something wrong. If you want to drink and you are underage, you must do it in a more responsible way.

  • I am a Wisconsin resident and got a ticket for not wearing my seat belt in Illinois. What would happen if I didn't pay the fine?

    By the way, I was wearing it but had to remove it to get my wallet out at the tool booth.

    Theodore’s Answer

    If you do not pay the fine, Illinois could take action on your license or registration. If Illinois does take action, you may be subject to suspension in Wisconsin as well. In the internet age, states are much more connected to each other. It is in your best interest to either negotiate the ticket down or pay it so that you avoid any unnecessary penalties and difficulties.

    Theodore’s Answer

    Attorney Missimer is right on point. You always need to contact the DMV if there are mysterious holds on your license that you cannot otherwise explain yourself. It may be something simple, it may be something complicated, but do yourself a favor and get it straightened out so that you can move on with your life. You will feel much better once this is behind you.

    Theodore’s Answer

    You should consult with a personal injury attorney in your area who will be able to answer those questions for you. I would certainly follow the progress of the criminal case against the other driver. Make sure to call the district attorney's office and let them know that you are interested in what happens. You may be able to recover money through that proceeding.

  • How can I get out of a DUI if I don't feel I should have gotten pulled over in the first place?

    I admit I had a few to drink, but was coherent. We were driving 45 mph in a 55 mph zone. Out of no where, a car sped up to get behind us. I eventually touched the center line with my tires while trying to monitor what was going on with the car ...

    Theodore’s Answer

    Based on what you have said, you may in fact have a defense to the stop. In order to fully examine the issue we would need to review the police reports and any squad car video that was produced. You may even have a defense to the breath result based on the numbers you put in your question.
