Any advice on helping someone close to you through an owi emotionally?
My close friend started court recently for an owi. He has withdrawn a lot but has shared that he has been thinking a lot and how he wants to change the path of his future which is great to hear. I can tell he is very stressed and anxious and I don't believe it helps when I ask about how's everything's going. I want to do whatever I can to help show him I want to help him get through it and support him emotionally without overwhelming him. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Does Judge Parker out of 47th district court allow you into sobriety court if you don't live in Farminton Hills?
I recently found out who my Judge will be for my 2nd DUI at the 47th district court in Farmington Hills MI. It's Judge Parker & she runs sobriety court, I am serious about my sobriety since my DUI I've been sober, attend AA meetings, have a sponsor, go to individual therapy & group therapy. I know the guidelines for sobriety court is to reside in that area but I don't & my county doesn't have it, but I am hoping she will consider my seriosuness & allow me into her program. Any thoughts or experience is helpful & I have already spoke to an attorney I am waiting for my pre trial conference in June.
If you are going to the AA meetings, spoken to an attorney and going to stop drinking and driving you are on the right path.
