Can a judge up your charges from a zero tolerance to a dui?
I got charged with a zero tolerance from the police officer saying he was cutting me a break. Im scared the judge might up it to a dui because i blew a 0.14 and im 19
Only the prosecutor can charge you. The judge does not have that authority,
Is it possible to plead for a wreckless driving charge rather than a dui? Is jury trial required to do so?
I am facing a 3rd dui charge-I was arrested way back on July 9th of 2010-I completed the dui risk education classes on Dec.20th-2010 - and drove-successfully w/ an intoxilock device in my vehicle for a full year. I have not gone to court yet -is there ANY WAY I can try to get out of the 3rd dui charge? I know I could be facing jail time-and would gladly submit to that-if I could get a lesser charge. Would that help my case? And....if I get sentenced w/ the dui-and it goes to the state-and my license is revoked-is there a period of time-required by the state-that I HAVE to go w/out driving at all? I plan on paying an attorney to go to springfield to make an attempt to get my driving privledges restored or at least a driving permit of sorts.
There's no "w' in reckless.

Will probation be given or denied?
He has been in custody for 4 months to be exact. He was picked up on a warrant for fta in court three years ago for an agg. DUI. He didnt show up because he was afraid and also because his brother passed away in the same month or so. And the attorney hired at the time was of no help at all. We have proof of the brothers death. Would that help in any case? He was offered a year in prison, three years ago. Can he get probation with the time spent in custody already? Thank you.
