Silver-Gate Law

A year ago I got really drunk at my house jumped into my truck, in my private drive way,and tore up the lovely yard that the wife likes so much and pushed over my storage shed. Mind you no one was at the house at the time but I was arrested and charged with agrivated DUI , criminal mischief, criminal endangerment. I did all this damage then turned my truck off and waited in my yard for about 2 minutes until the police showed up. My attorney , which my wife use to work for, wasn't much help- got a plea agreement that cancelled the DUI but kept the other two which are felonies. Do you think this was handled properly? I know these small towns make up their own rules as in my case- wife and father-in-law, which I live right across the street from,influenced the police- cant be right?

Undocumented immigrant got pulled over and taken to jail for a DUI and failure to surrender license. He took the breathalizer and blew over the legal limit to operate a vehicle. He doesn't have a valid drivers license either. The police took him to jail and he posted bond to get out. He now has to appear before the judge and will plead guilty. In Montana it is mandatory to serve 24 hours in jail. He is afraid of getting an ICE hold on him and get deported so he doesn't really want to go to court for fear they will take him to jail right away. He has to appear before the 16th of October. Can someone please advise.
He should go to see two lawyers. A DUI lawyer and an immigration lawyer. And then make sure they talk to each other.

It helps to have all payments paid or ready to be paid by court date.
