The woman I mention is already under investigation for a DWI with a fatality occuring while she was driving. She has several PI's all and maybe 2 or 3 more DWI's all within 2 yrs..

DWI was changed to Obst. of highway + 1 yr pretrial div, no alcohol for 1 yr, can they tell me what I can or cant do in my home
First offense, DWI was changed to Obstruction of highway + 1 yr pretrial diversion. One of the items listed on the contract was no alcohol for 1 yr. Can they legally tell me what I can or can't do in my home? Contract also states to not go upon any premises where alcohol is served. I can't go a real restaurant? Plus, my lawyer never told me what all a pretrial diversion consisted of, is this normal?

If I have a conviction for a Public Intoxication (did not dismiss or successfully complete a deferred probation) will I still be able to someday expunge it from my record?

Friend was arrest on 07/04/2012 for DWI. Licenses was suspended roughly 1 month later for 6 months due to the DWI. He had been trying to fight his DWI, had an attorney. A month ago, Jan 2014 the jury convicted him of the DWI, a year and half later. He has his first meeting with probation officer tomorrow. I THINK that licenses suspension and probation are governed separately? Is his licenses going to get suspended for another 6 months?
