I was arrested for DUI first offense in the State of Mississippi. Can the prosecutor change the charges to a lessor offense?
I understand the State of Mississippi bars any plea bargains for a DUI charge. However, the prosecutor for the county I was arrested in is a mutual friend. He instructed me not to show up to court with a lawyer and that he will do his best to work out something with the arresting officer.
And I am sure he is thrilled that you are posting this information in a public forum for the world to see. Get a clue man.

Can a probation officer order someone to submit to a drug test if the judge does not order the said person to submit to one.

Say a person received a DUI when they were 19 years old in Mississippi. The person blew a 0.06 and had the charge non-adjudicated. After said person turned 21, the DUI charge should have been dismissed and removed from his or her record. After this person turned 21 and assuming all charges from the DUI - first offense were dismissed, they received another DUI (currently charged as first offense). Can the court have this charge changed to a DUI - 2nd offense if they are informed of the person's prior non-adjudicated DUI - first offense?
