What considerations will a judge or DA take into consideration when setting sentencing or offering a plea bargain for 2nd DWI?
I am a disabled veteran (Medic). When I left the military I came back with PTSD and had an alcohol problem. The DWI arrest was over 1 year ago, since then I have been a full-time student and make high grades (Dean's list), active in my daughter's life, and have made efforts to prevent this from happening again (quit drinking). I no longer indulge in alcohol, have followed all court orders (maintained interlock device), been present at all scheduled hearings (constantly reset the day of court), and have found other more beneficial activities and individuals to occupy my time with. Will/should any of this be taken into consideration during the sentencing/plea bargain proposal phase?
Provide documentation of all of these facts to your attorney. She will use it in negotiations with the DA to get you...
I wasn't there but they went there to look for me. I recently about a month ago got a DUI but im still going to court and im doing my community service, paying my fees and haven't had a problem. I asked my lawyer and they checked my case and I don't have a warrant, my case is doing well and I'm in progress to finish what I owe in court. So my only thought is that someone told immigration where I live. what do I do?
It depends on what your status is in the U.S.

Someone crashed into a tree in our yard startling my mother so much she had to be taken to the hospital. Is the driver liable?
A drunk driver crashed into a tree in our yard in the middle of the night and nearly drove into my mom's bedroom. She was so startled by it she thought she was having a heart attack and had to be taken to the hospital due to high blood pressure and heart rate. The doctor said my mother was so startled it caused stress and an anxiety attack. My question is can the drunk driver's insurance be sued to pay for the ambulance ride and the ER bill?
What all was damaged? I have done a number of these cases. You may have a valid claim against the tortfeasor and your...
My Boss is regularly intoxicated on the job. How do I report him for this without him terminating me?
We Work for a large company. Human Resources is hard to contact; their number is not in the company directory or on the website. He often, in his stupor, countermands his own directions in mid paragraph, then yells when you ask for clarification. I have seen him with a cup that he says is orange juice and he tries to cover it so nobody can smell the alcohol. He also goes for a 2 hour lunch and comes back drunk He constantly threatens jobs and screams and yells all day long. and always saying that I am being Insubordinate when I do one little thing to do something to help or if I don't he still calls me that, I am really worried about retaliation. Or him looking for a reason to fire me after I report him can someone please help.
This question should be posted in the employment section, but I'm seeing it here in the DUI section. Anyway, I would...
