Is it legal for a case to sit on appeal almost four years?
I was arrested for DUI in 2011. Went to in front of judge in April 2012, was convicted even though I didn't blow. I immediately appealed and have heard nothing for almost four years. Just notified of court date. This happened in Blount county Alabama, where the good ole' boy system is in full swing.

What are my best options to get this reduced? Worried about losing my daughter my job my house
I was arrested for dui. It's my third one in five years(been two and a half years since the 2nd). Other than the dui 's and the ticket that gave them cause to pull me over I have not had any contact with the police in almost two decades. I've had the same job for twelve yrs. I have a house and I'm the sole provider for my daughter.
It will sound like a broken record once more attorneys see the question, but your best bet is to find an experienced...
Appeal and go jury trial or except judge ruling, if it was you what would you choose and as a professional your recommendation?
The trooper who made the stop gave me speeding ticket(81 in 65) and gave my passenger in front open container, had her son (13) in backseat. Stop was unusual with many details. Was told by court could apply for "deferred prosecution", did and was denied(have no priors). Facts: On the highway, to the 2nd(arresting) trooper, I admitted having 4-5 shots earlier in the day, blew in device 4-5 times, performed 3 field test, was arrested, I refused breathalyzer at jail. Judge asked DUI trooper since he didn't have test, his opinion. He said "I have seen worse, but if he wanted a number, probably around a .1 if I had agreed to blow." My speeding ticket from one trooper, my DUI from the other. Judge said "state provided evidence for DUI/Ticket and charged me. Two yrs suspended jail sentence, with agreement CRO program, a ignition device, $2100 fine DUI and $300speeding, and of course I have 14 days to decide if I want to appeal.
