I'm trying to understand why my friend was given a 5 year suspension on a 2nd oui.
My friend was arrested for a 2nd oui 4/7/09. His first was at least 5 years before and he was charged with a driving to endanger in 2006. He was also arrested 10/4/09 for a violation of release. I don't have all the in between information and I don't know what he blew, just he wasn't very nice. To my understanding he should have recieved an 18 months to 3 year suspension. But was charged with a third strike and given 5 years- 90 days in jail. He is expecting to get his license back in August of 2015. Is there any explanation you can provide? And is there a chance he could get his license sooner?
He may be able to qualify for a license in CO after one year.

I was charged with OUI for my legal prescription drugs (not narcotics). Is it possible to drop this to Reckless Driving?
I also received a summons for endangering the welfare of a child, because I had my newborn son in the car with me when I was arrested for the OUI. And finally, I received a third summons for leaving the scene of an accident. Let me just clarify--the OUI charge is not from alcohol or illegal drugs, but from on of my prescription medications that I had taken, I took both my morning dose together with my evening dose because I was worried what might happen if I missed a dose. I'm just wondering if this charge can be dropped down to a reckless driving charge? They won't provide me with a court-appointed attorney here because I make too much money $19K. But I need to know if there's any way around that OUI charge. And can I try to make a plea bargain with the D.A. without a lawyer?
Your best course of action contact a local attorney, either by email or phone, who will protect you and your rights....
