Charged with DWI AND ACCIDENT I was not driving.
Last weekend I went out drinking with a friend. She was driving her car. On the way home she hit another car. I was threatened by the people we hit and fled. I was charged with the dwi and accident and she was not even asked for her license. She is now ignoring me. Will she be forced to go to court to say she was driving? Is this common?

How can I receive a dui when cop rufuses me a breathlizer?
Was the DD this night for a buddy. I got pulled over and asked if I had been drinking. I told the cop I had one beer and it was an hour before driving.

Each time I speak with the legal aide she explains the process and says the attorney will reach me closer to the reset date and is busy in trial. They have the discovery in office but I'm not sure what is recommended. Should I seek new counsel or does this seem standard for this situation?
Lawyers do not like to knock others when we really don't know all the details. But, I will say that IF the lawyer has...
