Hi I got arrested for a DUI. I drove into the parking lot of the bar from my house. I consented to all tests and blew a .208.
I have no alcohol priors or any kind of arrests. I admitted to driving under the influence when asked by the officer i took all the tests and didnt make a fuss. I am wondering if I would need a public defender or should I just plead no contest (guilty)? I wish to know if i could plead for a wet reckless not a dui.
With a test result that high, the only way a prosecutor would consider reducing your charge to Careless or Reckless...
Is a dui w/ a child grounds for custody change? (step-dad)
I shared legal custody w/ my ex-wife and her husband took 1 of my children on a hunting trip. He was pulled over for a tail light on the way out and on the way back arrested for dui/weapon while intox. and endangering a minor.
The incident you describe could certainly be part of a petition to modify custody. It may not be enough all by itself...
I have no priors for except a DUI. I got an 4th assault dv charge but it was instigated by the accuser through a verbal attack.
He now regrets it and knows he was in the wrong even though I threw the first punch. His girlfriend knows he was in the wrong too and they both want the charges dropped. Do I need a lawyer to fight this?
I would recommend you absolutely seek out a local criminal defense attorney in your area to help you fight these...

I doubt that you will get a J-1 visa. You first need to resolve your criminal matter.
Will a DUI noncompliance warrant in Hawaii prevent me from coming off my felony probation in Alaska?
I was on felony probation in Hawaii and I got my first DUI. I was revoked by my probation officer and I went to court for a revocation hearing on my felony charge. The judge denied the revocation and allowed me to continue with my probation. I then went to court for my DUI charge and was convicted. I was given stipulations to follow and I finished them except for getting a drug and alcohol assessment. My mother then got sick with cancer and I moved back home. With my probation officers help, I had my felony probation transferred to Alaska. I didn't show up for my DUI hearing in Hawaii for proof of compliance so a $100 bench warrant was issued. I am set to be done with my probation in a couple of weeks and I am worried that this warrant will effect me coming off of my felony probation.
Very hard to say due to the multi jurisdiction issues, but I would guess no.
