I need a modification to reduce a felony to a misdemeanor. Can I get a form to do this myself to save an attorney fee?
I was convicted of 2 DUI's within a 5 year period, which is a felony in my state. The judge said after my 18 month probation and community service was complete and all fees paid, I could petition the court to reduce the felony to a misdemeanor. I have completed the terms of the judgment, but do not have $250.00 to pay an attorney to write a modification. The attorney that represented me for the conviction 18 months ago, said he would do this for $100.00. Now he says he doesn't recall saying that and wants $250.00. I am working full time and trying to get a lot of old debt paid. I just can't afford this right now but desperately want the felony off my record. I have been sober for almost 2 years now!!! Thank you.
It is not recommended, but you can certainly try. If the reduction was included in the plea agreement and you have...
Will I get a Dui or will I be charged with anything?
I was driving home late after having a few drink at a friends house. I ended up rolling my car into a ditch. The police were called by a witness and I was given a field sobriety test and then later taken to the hospital for a blood test. After the blood test the officer let me go. I was not arrested. I understand that it takes about 6 weeks for the lab results to get back, but I'm still uncertain about what's going to happen next.
Since we don't know what you mean by "a few drinks," none of us can really answer that question. If your BAC was over ....

Will I be charged for a DUI?
My friend had a family emergency and had to get home earlier than expected and we had a few drinks at the bar. When we got to his house the police were already there and my friend went inside with them. After the situation concluded the police came out and questioned me. They asked if I was drinking I said yes and they did a breathalyzer test on me. I blew over but they did not arrest me, ask for my license, or even my name. They said this was a warning and said you should spend the night here. With all that being said, is there a chance of me being charged?
No one can say for certain if you will be charged. That is up to the prosecutor. However, given the circumstances that...
What are the reqmnts re: info collected from hard drive, network activity, etc for that info to be used (or not) in a legal case
Relative convicted in criminal trial and is looking for any Indiana and Federal Rules of Evidence concerning the collection and use of "MetaData" in a forensic investigation for use/compliance for use in a court case to be considered valid evidence. Relative states: "[police] supposedly did the forensic investigation on the hard drive(s) from the laptops taken from the house, nothing found on the drives according to [public defender] as of day before trial but then claim by state police of "window washer" program traces (previously not disclosed to defense, violation of rules of evidence). They, the state police, also did not provide a "record of content" to the defense or the prosecution prior to trial that detailed what was and what wasn't actually on the drive(s). They also didn't provide a chain of custody that showed which drive the got the alleged "window washer" software, also a violation of the rules of evidence and also another point that [pub def] just let slip without challenge when he was questioning the [police] investigator and failed to collect on cross examination after disclosure during the prosecutors questioning (error of counsel/ineffective assistance)"
There isn't enough space to explain the complexities of the rules of evidence. If your relative is looking to appeal...
