What can you expect after a plea hearing?
I received a plea bargain for 2 first time DWIs of 14 months of probation and a $500 fine. I realized I would have to have both on my record but I knew if I went to trial it could be worse. For those wondering how I got this type of deal I went to 27 AA meetings, took the first offense DWI class, went to a MADD course, and had a psychologist evaluation done without being told. Also, I have been sober since August 7, 2016 so I had the coins from AA. However, when I went to the judge to accept he said no because he couldn't believe how low of a punishment I was getting. Both DWIs were not harmful (first was due to "improper signaling" of me, even though I drove and parked correctly in front of my house and the next was two months later when I parked in a parking lot to sleep after realizing I should not drive but the car was on unfortunately). I know I've made a mistake and unfortunately now know a little too much on how the legal system is and the politicalness of DWIs. I was wondering when I go to the hearing next month what type of deal would I expect? The judge wants a stiffer punishment but the prosecutor felt I did enough? Would one be dropped?
