I received a "Driving while Impaired" (not drunk) in Michigan last week with an obstruction charge for not taking the breathalizer test. Both misdemeanors. I have 2 prior DUI,s in Florida , where I reside.. The last being in 1989. I am curious to know how this will play out in Florida against my license. Also , 3+ years ago I filed to have my civil rights ( now restored) and right to own a weapon restored ( still waiting for this part). I applied as I have a 3rd degree felony that came from trying to get a fake ID after not having a DL due to the DUI in 1989. As well , what do you think will happen to my clemency request? All tied together and have me worried.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: I received a "Driving while Impaired" (not drunk) in Michigan last week with an obstruction charge for not taking the breathalizer test.

I am accused of "Interference with a peace officer" in

I am accused of "Interference with a peace officer" in Wyoming, citation code no: 6-5-204. This is the definition on the Justia US Law Site: A person commits a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than one (1) year, a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000.00), or both, if he knowingly obstructs, impedes or interferes with or resists arrest by a peace officer while engaged in the lawful performance of his official duties.I received a citation for fishing without a WY fishing license, and I then provided false identity information to the officer (name, address, phone, dob). The following day the officer then discovered I had lied. I am guilty and intend to plead guilty.I have a hearing in Jackson Hole on Thursday, 7/28, and need to know if I should have an attorney present. It's considered a misdemeanor.Please don't answer if your response is simply, "yes, it's advised that you have an attorney present."Thanks!Michael

I am just looking because I just found out that the police

Hi Pearl - I am just looking for information because I just found out that the police report for the charges of domestic violence against my husband contains some information that I haven't said... And which is aggravating the case. I am new to this country and did not know how far this would go by involving the police. I just want my husband and I if need be to go to counseling and reunite as a family for the sake of our little boy... But I don't know how things will turn since I understand now it is out of my control. Can you help?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: California, it happened mid JuneJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No I haven'tJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Yes there are also pictures in the police report... They probably don't need me anymore now but I have a good relationship with the victims advocate at the da office and have been explaining from the beginning that I didn't think it was right to send my husband to jail even though at first I didn't want to go back to him. I however now do want to save my family and moreover have found that they exagerated the report and the things I said.
