Does Judge Parker out of 47th district court allow you into sobriety court if you don't live in Farminton Hills?
I recently found out who my Judge will be for my 2nd DUI at the 47th district court in Farmington Hills MI. It's Judge Parker & she runs sobriety court, I am serious about my sobriety since my DUI I've been sober, attend AA meetings, have a sponsor, go to individual therapy & group therapy. I know the guidelines for sobriety court is to reside in that area but I don't & my county doesn't have it, but I am hoping she will consider my seriosuness & allow me into her program. Any thoughts or experience is helpful & I have already spoke to an attorney I am waiting for my pre trial conference in June.
If you are going to the AA meetings, spoken to an attorney and going to stop drinking and driving you are on the right path.
Is the 47th district court hard on DUI cases?
I have been sober since the night I was ticketed with my 2nd DUI, I have been going to AA 3-5 times a week, I have a substance abuse therapist, I am attending & substance abuse/alcoholics treatment group, & have several reference letters from both of my jobs as well as the Marine Corp. League for volunteer work I do yearly, & proof of the business degree I am currently pursuing. I know I messed up I am ashamed of myself & want to be sober & keep my jobs & my current position obtaining my degree. But I am scared of jail & losing it all. I have hired an attorney but he doesn't communicate well so it leaves me in the dark. Will the court take any of this into consideration?

If my attorney has misconduct should I retain another attorney?
I was charged with a 2nd OWI & went to see an attorney whom I am familiar with hours after being realsed from Jail. Out of panic I gave him a deposit, but after leaving his office I did reaserch & found that he has a few misconducts against him. He's hasn't filed an appearance on my case yet. I am in limbo to keep him or eat the deposit & go with an attorney that has better reviews & has been more available for communication. Both attorneys are from the county I was charged in.
If the lawyer you first "hired" is not communicating well with you, you have a right to get a new lawyer, as you should....
