What kind of sentence can my husband expect from his 3rd DUI and failure to install an Interlock device, and can they add more?
My husband has 3 DUIs in the last 3 years. One in ND and is currently on probation from his 2nd in Wyoming. He went to court ordered rehab and is still going. He was doing good not drinking. Last night he went to a wedding, and apparently drank, because I had a message on my phone at 1:30 this morning saying that he was going to jail. I called the jail and they said he is being charged with DUI, Driving without the interlock system(which we were arranging to have put in next week because we didn't have the money before) and driving 3 miles over the speed limit. All misdemeaners. She didn't mention probation violation or driving under a suspended license. Can they add these charges on later? And how can a lawyer help? I lost my job due to illness and I'm scared.
He will get a very harsh sentence, in my opinion. I think he needs to go into a 90 day in-patient program to show the...

You need to contact a local attorney. Maybe someone local would be willing to give you more information over the phone....
I was pulled over for speeding and the officers said they could smell alcohol. I did imbibe in alcohol many hours prior to driving and knew I was fine by then. They asked me if I would submit to a "field sobriety test". I said I would. I was wearing very high heeled shoes at the time and figured that they might inhibit my ability to walk a straight line, so I took them off. Being barefoot on blacktop proved to be even worse, as I stumbled off the line a couple times because the blacktop was hurting my feet .They said I failed. They arrested me for a DWUI. When I arrived at the jail, I submitted to a breathalyzer. It was well under the legal limit. I spent the night in jail and was bailed out the next morning.
Everyone pleads not guilty at arraignment. You should retain a good DWI lawyer from Avvo in your area to handle the...
I would like to be proactive if that is possible. Would entering into an alcohol program prior to my court hearing have any effect on my case?
Your first step should be to consult with a local defense attorney about your case and potential defenses. If you...
Arrested for dus , dwi, and my paper work says felony possession meth on Fri on Mon went to court judge read charges as misdeme
can they still charge me with felony
Yes. You need a criminal defense attorney. If you can't afford one themask for a public defender.
Up until a few weeks ago I've never even had a speeding ticket. I was pulled over for a broken headlight and ended up with a DUI. I blew a .10 at the scene then a .06 at the station about an hour later. I did not post bail so I spent the night in jail then went straight to court. I knew nothing about what to expect or what to do so I just plead guilty after seeing the .10 on the police report. The judge did not sentence me there but set a date for sentencing since they needed my record from another state. Now I've done some research and realize I probably should have plead not guilty and hired an attorney. Is that not an option now that I already plead guilty? Do I just show up to sentencing and cross my fingers?
I don't practice in WY, but I would recommend you contact a competent criminal defense attorney in your area to review...
