My first DUI arrest was in January of this year . and the second arrest was in August the same year. My questions are
For the first DUI i could not afford a lawyer so the court told me to attend alcohol education classes, community service and attend a MADD meeting .After my second arrest I hired an attorney . He told me that the prosecutor is gonna try to make me a second offender and my attorney will try to getting it down to make me a first offender . Which i guess means pleading guilty as a first offender. So what is a first offender? Is it same as being convicted for a misdemeanor . Is a first offender same as a convict ? Can a first offender have their record cleaned up . Can a first offender get a job ? So basically what is a first offender and what penalties may they have to face ?

a friend of time has been out of rehab for 2 years. He had no taken a drink until last week when he decided to go live with a friend. Since than he has been drunk everyday and out of control.

No, you should not risk getting your friend in more trouble than he has already been in or is in currently. If you...
Can someone receive a teaching certification and teach in a public school in CT with a DUI arrest in his record ?
My husband was working as a paraprofessional in a public school district.When asked in the application if he had committed a felony we answered no,because we were under the impression that a DUI arrest was a misdemeanor and not a felony. After he had being working for about a month,he was asked to go to the Board of Education to explain the details of his arrest and later on that day,he was called at the school while he was working and was asked to leave the school immediately. He is studying in an education program to become a teacher,but we are not sure if he would be allowed to teach with this DUI arrest in his record.This was his only arrest,he pleaded guilty to the offense and spent 7 days in prison,would he be able to have this removed so that he can get his license and teach in CT?

For my first DUI, I did not have the money to hire an attorney. So to avoid a conviction the court told me to join the alcohol education program.attend a MADD panel Meeting and 50 hours of community service. So I have done every thing the court told me to do for my first DUI to avoid a conviction. Then in August 2013 I got my second DUI, Hired an attorney , and he told me what would happen , I became a first offender. I have been put on probation for 18 months, gotta do 100 hours of community service. Attend a MADD panel meeting. and have an Inter ignition device installed in my car . The fact that I have been convicted of a DUI as a first offender , under C.G.S section 14-227a. I am OK with that as i will have it expunged later on in the future. Turns out that I have a court hearing
Your participation in the alcohol education program for your first DWI will be deemed "unsatisfactory" in light of the...
