Were my OAS and leaving the scene charges dropped?
Recently I was charged with operating under the influence, leaving the scene of a accident of property damage while my license was suspended (for a unpaid ticket.) The arresting officer gave me my court date for these three charges the day I was arrested. A few days later I received a letter stating the court date was changed and the listed offenses only stated OUI.

My wife was involved in an DWI accident with another vehicle, the other driver has "deep tissue" injuries.
The ADA wants to charge her with Felony driving to endanger, dropping the DWI charge, 60 days in Jail, 2 years probation. She has never been in trouble before, gone to a 30 day rehab program that our insurance does not cover & also a 3 week IPO. The DAD doesn't want to budge on a plea deal & seems dead set on a felony conviction. We have a lawyer but I'm not happy with the results so far. Any suggestions to negotiate with the ADA and avoid the felony charges which will follow her the rest of her life?
