Virginia DWI expungement
Two years ago I received a DWI charge which was nolle prossed in exchange for a guilty plea to civil refusal. No other lifetime arrest/criminal history. SOL has tolled on the nolle'd charge.

Do i even have a chance? 1st offense dui Virginia
charged with my 1st offense DUI. My roadside breathalizer test was 0.15. and one hour later my BAC was .08. My neighbor is a Lutenant for my local police dept and my neighbor. He offered to " look into" my charges. He felt he could get things reduced to a reckless and not to hire an attorney. Fast forward to today...court is on Tuesday the sept the 8th. The assistant district attorney called me and went over thier plea offer. She said the case had no flaws in her opinion and that she should give me no break. They plea is a reduction to wet wreckless. I would have to attend ASAP,interlock 6 months, 6 months loss of license and 250.00 fine. Basically DUI without the actual charge on my record. . Should i ask for a continence? Should i get a lawyer and fight it?
