I am considering taking a plea on my 3rd Owi to an owi 2nd. My attorney is supposed to get back to me by Friday, I am just anxious and I found this site. Can anyone tell me what the probation and license restrictions would be if I pled to an OWI 2nd? Jail time? These are the only criminal charges I have faced....meaning the owi's.

I was arrested over 2 years ago for a DUI, and the case is still pending. I am searching for a new lawyer and should be going to trial within 2 months. I paid my attorney a good amount of money as a flat rate to include everything up til trial, with the agreement that if the case goes to trial, another flat rate would be paid. We were able to suppress a lot of key evidence, including all of my statements and the breathalyzer. The prosecution offered a plea bargain (careless driving), and I refused, because I have a very strong case that might actually win at trial. My attorney thought I should take the plea, and asked to be removed from my case (which the judge granted). It this reasonable and normal, or a violation of ethics?

My pretrial is still going on. My lawyer told me about this reduction today and I have to decide whether I accept it or take it to Jury trial that is scheduled in 2 weeks. I have a meeting with my lawyer next week, but I would like to ask other experts on this matter. Should I ask my lawyer that I can get reckless driving instead? If there are two options, impaired and reckless, Is reckless driving better option to take? One more question! (please answer this one as my lawyer says he is not sure about it) I'm in the process for my green card, is either OWVI or reckless going to affect my green card? Thank you.
Most Prosecutors/City Attorneys will not offer a Reckless on an OWI unless there are special circumstances (e.g.: low...
My situation is. I rented the in home breathalyzer Mach last Thursday. And on fri or sat I had to take the test. Well the machine read abort. I didn't take it again because I had to go to the bathroom right away for a long time. Anyways I took the test on Sunday and it passed.
