Will I get sent to jail for missing an OUI 1st random court ordered screening? I have been taking them for 6 months passing all.
I took a job in Vermont and told the probation officer that I needed to please be called the day before for a screen because I have a 4 HR ride to court house. He said he would work with me. I am not on probation but subject to the screens. I missed a call for a screen and have been so upset. My OUI trial is in 2 months. What can I do. Thank you

Should I opt for a bench trial or take a plea deal for an operating under rx drugs charge - details below...

However, I accidentally took the WRONG capsule -- my sleeping pill! -- and as I tried to pull overto the side of the road once I began to feel my mistake I LIGHTLY tapped another car's bumber. Should I opt for a bench trial, given that I've never been arrested before, do not have a drug history or drug record, etc? IT WAS AN ACCIDENT - Or is it better to go with a plea deal? Waltham, MA

I was arrested for Public Intoxication; and placed into protective custody. I was then convicted of DUI, within 10 mins!
What can I do? I was in protective custody and then release on my own, no one there when they released me. I then walked to my car, started to drive home and was arrested for a DUI, all within 10 minutes! I'm now been convicted guilty of the DUI, the preliminary case involving the Public Drinking was dismissed months ago. Any help would be great!
