DUI bench warrant. Wait for arresting officer to retire?
I was arrested for DUI with a lower BAC (0.09) after a turn signal violation. Unfortunately I have some old priors so was facing extended jail and supervised probation even if plead down to a DWAI. I left the state becoming a fugitive prior to conviction. The arresting state patrol officer was in his mid-50s. If I wait until the officer retires will the DA dismiss the case? I've completely stopped drinking, thought I had it under control, and honestly did not think I was above 0.08. I am hugely remorseful but a year of jail and years of supervised probation was not something I could survive.

How can I give myself the best chance for a probationary license at the dmv hearing in colorado?
I have received a notice for my license being suspended due to excessive points in a 12 month period. I have a dmv hearing next Monday and I am hoping to get a probationary or red license. How can I give myself the best chance of receiving one? It would cost me my job not to be able to drive. It would also eliminate my ability to receive treatment for an eating disorder. Is it going to be of any benefit to explain that the stresses in my life are a factor for the tickets? I'm really nervous about losing access to treatment and my income.
Remember, these hearings are for trying matters of fact in individual cases where witnesses are heard and evidence is...
