completed 16 wks of treatment, my lawyer talked the DA into a conditional discharge- just completed the PSI, my lawyer says its highly unlikely the judge will sentence for probation, got uneasy when the probation officer voiced concerns over having "abused my driving priveledges 3 times" , I recently lost my job and am on unemployment, looking for work- your thoughts?
If I were the Judge I'd give you probation because it's your 3d drunk driving case.
i was arrested for a dwi.. when the police showed up to the parking lot i was parked in, they arrested me for dwi. the keys werent in the ignition and i was outside the car. prior to the police getting there, two kids had approached me. talking about being abused by thier parents. when the parents got there the mother began abusing the child. took my keys and had me arrested for driving drunk.. this case is based on her saying i was driving and arrest report says that i was outside the car. isnt this hear say (her word vs mine)? and without concrete evidence (like the dash cam on the cop car). why am i fighting a dwi charge and she never got arested for abuse? how can i get the DA to see the holes in the case?
There is no way you can know all the facts yet. Perhaps the woman told the police that she say you driving the car...
In 2010 i was charged with dwi. I am still going to court . my lawyer is never there. I also was told they will charge me with dwi if i do not come up with 775 dollars on the day of sentencing.. My lawyer never showed up last time at sentencing and the replacement lawyer from her firm said oh while laughing she only has 500. the judge would not take it he set another date. I feel i am being treated unfairly. especially when my husabnd is hated in his court room and everyone knows my husband. and when i first started going to court my lawyer asked me is your husband so and so and she looked at me and smiled and said this is going to be hard. what do i dooooo. i am being railroaded and treated unfairly.
I suggest you consider getting a different attorney to represent your husband.
it was for a DWI, missed court date that we never even got papers for saying he had a court date. but got caught last night because we forgot to turn the headlights on and when the officer checked his license it read that it was revoked and he had two warrants, one was for Oswego County, NY. But the officer did not read him his rights. Simply just said " Bryant can you please step outta the car and place your hands on the car." and then cuffed him and then explained that he had search warrants.
The officer does not have to read you your rights unless he is going to question you. So it's not an issue.
