    They have offered: plead guilty to owi 1st and owi 2nd, fines of $900 and $1500, 40 days jail, IID, and continue AODA, and they will dismiss Resisting an Officer and traffic violation. What can/should my attorney counter offer be??

    Be aware that with two separate offenses in one year, it is unlikely that DOT will issue you an occupational license.

  • My daughter was fined for underage drinking, but the case has been "adjourned initial appearance" four times. What is going on?

    Sh was 19 at the time. We are not sure if she is not showing up and they keep adjourning it, or if they are waiting on something else.

    Travis’s Answer

    The Court is likely giving her time to complete an underage drinking class, which may result in a dismissed ticket or reduced fine.

    You are probably going to want to hire an attorney before the first court date to help you argue for a signature bond. Also, hit-and-run cases sometimes present viable defenses, including whether or not you knew that you were involved in an accident.

    Travis’s Answer

    I agree with the answer above. The next step is that you will likely return to the sentencing court for a Sentencing After Revocation hearing. You are entitled to counsel at that hearing so I would recommend that you find a defense attorney to represent you.

  • I was just pulled over and issued a ticket for my 3rd operating while suspended in WI. Am I looking at a lot of jail time?

    Have a few things on my criminal record

    Travis’s Answer

    I agree with the above post. I would add that if you are looking at criminal charges such as operating after revocation, generally the most effective step that you can take while the case is pending is to complete the steps necessary to reinstate your license. The DOT website will provide you with the personalized information that you need.

    To add, you must request a refusal hearing within 10 days or a default judgment will be entered. I would recommend speaking with an attorney, there are several issues that can be explored for an OWI - 1st. It is unlikely, but possible, that you will be able to speak to the DA before the court date. To receive the police reports file a discovery demand with the court or an open records request with the arresting agency.

  • Will i for sure get my license suspended for a first offense OWI?

    the police officer pulled me over and told me my tail light was out, when i later checked, it was not out

    Travis’s Answer

    I agree with the other answers on this question. I would add that the Department of Transportation will administratively suspend your license within 30 days of receiving a BAC result over .08. You or your attorney can request a hearing, but it must be done within a short time of receiving the notice of intent to revoke. Waiting is ill-advised.

    If the case has a "CM" designation, it will be removed from CCAP after 20 years.

    Travis’s Answer

    Usually, if your probation agent feels that the allegations are serious, they will place you on a probation hold (in custody) until they make the decision to either release you or begin the revocation process. If your agent chooses revocation, you will want to get an attorney involved to represent you at your revocation hearing or to present alternatives to revocation (ATR).

    Travis’s Answer

    Your situation is fairly common in these types of cases. You will have to decide whether the truth is more important than risking the possibility of being charged with obstructing. I'd speak with a local attorney to see how the district attorney's office usually handles recantation.
