    Need info on Minnesota DWI laws or experience with.

    Hey everyone,

    I have a question if any of this sounds right.
    I have a relative who got their 1st DWI and just went to court on Friday for it.
    The judge handed down:

    1)
    Reduced from DWI to Reckless Driving
    2)
    90 days suspended license reduced to Zero
    3)
    Fine reduced from $1,000 to $500
    4)
    Was represented by a public defender

    Now this morning, this relative gets a call that the State of MN has taken over the case all because their public defender didn't file some paperwork or on time and they are:

    1)
    Enforcing it as a DWI
    2)
    Full 90 day suspended license and $800 or so to get it back
    3)
    Fine increased to $1,000
    4)
    Plus costs for any classes to get license back.

    Does any of this sound correct?

    If yes, who should they contact or what to do to get this reversed?


    Any assistance or information would be greatly appreciated.

    Doesn't the public defender work for the state?

    I had to pay 680 for a reinstatement fee to Minny for a DWI that got dropped 2 a reckless. Plus over 600 for the reckless itself. I still lost my Drivers license for 90 days..But that was over 3 years ago so maybe some stuff has changed.

    I guess there is a reason they call them a public pertender

    IMO your "relative" deserves everything they are throwing at them. However in a legal standpoint what they are doing is wrong if the case has allready been ruled on. Does your "relative" have any documentation to prove the former ruling? If so I would look into
    attorney and file a case of some sort.
