Was arrested for DUI in October 2015, it's January 2017 and no verdict from the judge.
In October 2015, I was arrested for DUI, refusal (even though I blew in the machine 3 times), careless driving and driving on a suspended license, even though I had court papers saying my ticket was paid in full the court never released my license. The first two times I went to court, the state asked for a continuance because the arresting officer was not present and the second was because the witness did not show up. I had provided documents that my license was good and that I was not under the influence of alcohol, I was sleep driving due to a medication.

How long do I have before my lawyer can file a motion to dismiss?

I'm not sure why I was charged with a DUI, since I blew a .13. Would I be able to plead guilty to the DUI before the court date? A DUI in Arkansas bears a lot less consequences than a DWI.
No, you probably cannot plead prior to the court date. You should get a local criminal defense attorney before you try...
