DUI 2nd offense, Driving on a suspended, Wanton Endangerment 1st degree charges after possibly having had my energy drink spiked
I had visited with an acquaintance at my home during which time I only knowingly had about 9 oz. red wine. Later that day I was in an automobile accident in which my son was in the car. They have charged me with the above charges. However I have no clear memory of having done any of this.. My friends have asked was it possible that something had been slipped into my beverage. I am at a loss as to what possibly happened. I know I have been trying to clean up my act and stay out of trouble. I am on SSI and worry that a public defender will not be able to handle my case correctly/thoroughly. I am needing advice.
These are serious charges with potentially serious consequences. I highly suggest that you consult with a locally...

I am not sure whether to plead guilty to a charge of 2nd offense driving on a suspended license.
I lost my license on July 1, 2010 for a DUI 3rd offense. The last letter I received from DMV stated that my license was suspended until July 1 2012. I have not completed my DUI classes. I was stopped coming back from Wal-Mart buying medicine for my 11 year old son and charged with driving on a suspended license 2nd offense. Was my license still suspended or was I simply driving w/o a license? I am not sure whether to plead guilty or not.

What is a customary fee schedule for a 1st DUI and how long do they usually take to resolve?
I was charged with a DUI 9/2015 with a 0.03 breath test in the field and negative on the blood and the only thing on my drug screen was Trazadone which I have taken for several years for sleep when I need it. This has been ongoing, it took until May to get the blood results back. My lawyer asked for $1000. up front, he travels 13 miles for the continuing court appearances which have totaled 3 visits of no more than 5 minutes, and the pre-trial which may have lasted a total of 10 minutes. I met with him for the first time in his office last Friday and he asked for an additional $3000. 1500 to cover the continuing visits to date and 1500 to go to a bench trial. I have been led to believe all along that this would most likely be dismissed, but for some reason the county attorney wants it taken forward. I have never been in trouble before. I feel like these fees are excessive.
Respectfully, I think the fees are quite reasonable. You are paying for time and experience. Your attorney spent...
