So it was 6 in morning was getting a ride in my car, driver pulled over and left, I got out and sat in front seat with girlfriend...middle of winter in U.P. of Michigan...it was cold!!! I left car on and passed out...woke up to cops and EMS making me do tests and stuff...told them I wasn't even driving but charged me wit DUI 2nd. They offered to drop the Driving while License Suspended for a plea to 2nd DUI...horrible deal...Trial is may 13th and I heard there was some kind of shelter laws for situations like this? Seriously thinking trial, have gone before not my first rodeo...I'm thinking about going to rehab to maybe offset some jail time I might be given if I lose and to fulfill some of the rehabilitation requirements...Please I need some advice about this situation...THANKS A LOT!
Rehab is a good idea. Get the best DUI attorney that you can afford. May 13 is just around the corner. It will take...
I was arrested over 2 years ago for a DUI, and the case is still pending. I am searching for a new lawyer and should be going to trial within 2 months. I paid my attorney a good amount of money as a flat rate to include everything up til trial, with the agreement that if the case goes to trial, another flat rate would be paid. We were able to suppress a lot of key evidence, including all of my statements and the breathalyzer. The prosecution offered a plea bargain (careless driving), and I refused, because I have a very strong case that might actually win at trial. My attorney thought I should take the plea, and asked to be removed from my case (which the judge granted). It this reasonable and normal, or a violation of ethics?
Yes an attorney can move to withdraw at any time and if the judge allows it, which in your case they did. Are you...
I have an upcoming trial for a DUI offense. I have previously been offered a careless driving plea bargain, but think I can win at trial. Somebody advised me that if I didn't accept the plea bargain for careless, the prosecution can always add it at trial ; meaning that the jury will have to decide if I am innocent, guilty of a DUI, or responsible of careless driving. Is this true? Legal? Anything I can do to avoid this? I have a strong case, but I don't want a jury to avoid a true decision by splitting the baby and finding me responsible for careless.
Possible? Yes, I suppose so. Athough I've never heard of it. You could avoid it by admitting responsibility or take the...

I live in California and am currently on probation for an OWI 2nd offense that I received in Michigan. My license was revoked for one year. Is it possible to win my Drivers License appeal hearing if I am still on probation? I hear this is very hard, but by the time I file for the appeal I will have 15 months of demonstrable sobriety, including voluntary testing beyond what was ordered by the court, and I can produce notarized letters from others testifying to my sobriety. I also attend AA, counseling, and alcohol programs. I have no probation violations of any kind, and I am serious about my sobriety. What are my chances of winning my appeal and getting a clearance? Please don't just tell me I need a lawyer. I know that. If you can provide a substantive answer, I will contact your office.
Your chances are slim of getting a full license on your first attempt. More than likely you would get a restricted with...
