Aggravated DWI does carry with it a possible jail term but if you really do have a clean record it is highly unlikely...
On Thursday I had a little too much to drink and I had to go to the hospital. An ambulance picked me up and police also arrived. I don't remember what the police said but it's been 5 days and I haven't heard from the police and only the hospital has my name and info for billing reasons. Do you think the police will do anything ? Considering nothing really happened on the actual day, I think they just took my name but no other information.
It is unlikely that anything will happen, but if anything does speak with an attorney before taking any action.

Hello All, I am seeking advice on how to proceed with my case. The judge has warned me that the same DA prosecuting me, is prosecuting my lawyer. The judge gave me a little less than 3 weeks to seek advice/ find new counsel/ decide to retain my current counsel. What is my best option here? I have already put out a lot of money to take this matter to trial. I really cannot afford a new attorney unless I absolutely have to. I am confident in my lawyers abilities and the fact that I am truly innocent. However I am worried that using my present attorney/ his partner (who was not involved in the case against my lawyer, but has close familial ties) can have a conflict of interest/ will look bad upon me. Please advise me how I should proceed in this matter. Thank you.
