My son was on his way from Denver to Grand Junction. He ran out of gas and was parked at the side of the road when an officer stopped. Son's car smelled like marijuana so they took him for blood test. Had blood level (not sure what it was) so he was arrested. Friend bonded him out. He had a job over the summer so postponed the hearing. He had a lawyer (not a DUI lawyer) and went before the DA twice and it was not reduced. Then he requested a jury trial. Does he have a better chance with a jury? He is trying to get a public defender but would he have a better chance hiring an attorney?

I was arrested for DUI while on vacation in AZ, 2 mo. ago, following an altercation with another in the car. I drove away to let him calm, and he called the police, who appeared about when I came back. Everyone had been drinking heavily, and I felt sober so I drove. Since it was clear everyone was drinking, they requested a field sobriety test, which I did fine on, and breathalyzer test, which I blew .10 BAC. They took blood for lab testing. I spent a night in jail, and the next day was dismissed without prejudice, pending lab results, as well as the Assault charge dropped for self-defense. I need to appear in court again for arraignment in about 2 weeks for DUI and, now, Reckless Driving as well, and I have a 13 hour drive to appear.
