Pulled over for OVI in Delaware County. Another driver had called in about my driving. I was driving slowly and braking often trying to read road signs at night as I was lost. Officer stopped me as I pulled into a parking lot but did not witness any impaired driving. I did not blow. Officer arrested me and I spent the night in jail. I have been offered a plea deal of reckless op (4 pts), defensive driving course (-2pts), 3 day treatment, 6 month suspension w/ privileges. Is this a good deal? Is there a lesser charge to plea? Can I counter? Should I go to trial? Prosecutor has already stated that he didn't want this to go to trial due to lack of case.

it was a second DUI offense, last one was 3 months away from being 6 years ago and it was also the morning after while I was driving home from a party. The prosecutor sentenced me to 10 days jail and 1 year license suspension. On the day of the sentencing the judge didn't go with that, instead changed it to 2 years license suspension. I just wanted to know if it was too late to fight that since the judge sentenced me or if theres a way to get it back down to 1 year.

This DUI was the 1st time I'd ever been in trouble & still the only thing on my record. It's listed as "DUI low levels" on my record. There were many ?'s involving the reason I was pulled over, the way the field test was given & that I passed it w/the only thing noted by the officer being that my eyes were red/bloodshot. At the time, I had a 3 mo.old baby, was working FT 3rd shift as a lab tech.I hired a lawyer I cld afford. She was fairly new & inexperienced.At the time I was dealing w the case I was suffering w postpartum depression,anxiety & Graves' disease. I was very ill & wasn't making decisions well or able to fight the case the way I wanted to.I'm healthy now & am aware of the many errors made in my case. I'm applying for jobs,but bc of DUI am not considered for jobs I deserve.
