What action do I take as far as my lawsuit is concerned?
I was involved in an auto accident in November of 2012. I was found at fault because I was charged with DWI. During the accident, I was traveling on the roadway when another vehicle turned out in front of me and I was unable to stop in time and rear-ended the other vehicle. We pulled into a parking lot. I asked the other driver if she was ok to which she stated, "Yes." She then began yelling and pointing angrily then called police. When police arrived I was given a SFST and then arrested on DWI charges. The other driver requested medical evaluation and left in an ambulance. I plead no contest to DWI and paid my fines and served probation etc. I got served with lawsuit papers the other day that the woman is suing for between 200k and 1 million. I have no assets or money. What do I do?

What are the likely outcomes of DWI while on felony probation?
My brother was arrested a couple years ago for harassment of public servant and assault of public servant, both 3rd degree felonies. Plead guilty and received 5yrs deferred (I think it was deferred, it might've been regular probation). He was arrested for DWI recently. The probation hearing is set, no bond at the moment and he's currently sitting in jail. What are the likely outcomes? Thank you
It really depends on what judge his felonies are with. With some judges, rehab would be a definite possibility. With...

Best plea deal option to avoid jail in DWI-2nd
I picked up a second DWI within 3 years.... Behind the wheel in a one car accident. I have no defense and just want the best plea deal I can get. In my first conviction, I paid a big fine with no probation and no interlock on my car. Is a similar deal possible on the second conviction? What about a fine and interlock only?I'm hearing that the laws have changed since my last dwi and even probation now requires some minimum jail time. Is there any option to avoid jail... even a minimum amount? I spent a night in jail on my arrest and I don't want to go back. I'm going to AA and haven't had a drink since the arrest. Thank you for any suggestions and advice.
While it is a brave thing to admit you have a problem, and an admirable thing, that doesn't mean your criminal record...
