I am on probation for a DUI.
On probation for a DUI. When I was sentenced i had mentioned to the judge I was interested in an outpatient program and I had actually spoken to a specific one. When sentenced he had put on as a condition I complete that program. I had to wait for a spot to open and when it did I went to the class but was pulled out just yesterday and told they needed the spot for a more at risk person. When I spoke to the director he said I never should have been admitted to the program and that my insurance would not pay because of the time of my sobriety - it was for more immediate need people. (Sober over a year). I explained this to my PO but she said I had to get done and at this facility, could not go elsewhere, because of the judges order. I do not know what to do. Should I have a lawyer petion the court. For a change in sentence? Can I? I am ok going elsewhere or doing whatever the court requires but Now I am between a rock and hard place - with this place. 9 months on probation never failed ua or missed appointments or requirements.

I refused the breathalyzer and was charged with a DWI. In court I was offered and plead guilty to a Careless Driving violation. Given that I didn't get an alcohol related conviction, is there any means that I can get out of having to have an interlock device in my vehicle ?

Do I need a different dui attorney or can my current dui attorney fix this?
I got a dui in february of 2014. I hired an attorney and immediately told him I did not want any deals as I had identified several triable issues. I have legal experience in another state but huge personality with female judge anxious to make an example of me, refusal and gave cop a hard time. Anyway, case was set for trial, lawyer failed to gather the evidence, send out subpoenas I suggested and I entered a plea to a dwai and careless driving with atty screaming at me in open court that he would leave, even tho potential jurors in next room if I didnt take plea. I also told judge I was on tranquilizers. Atty said license safe, now suspended and going to hearing what should atty do or me for that matter. He misled me. I did not voluntarily plead and judge sua sponte should have aborted ple

Do I need an attorney?
I have an interlock device in my car which I'm required to have for one more year. My question is two-fold. Can I move the dmv for an order removing the interlock early because I've had no violation s for a year. I'd also like to know if I got caught driving a car without an interlock would I be ticketed or arrested? And what other consequences might there be?
An attorney cannot help under these facts. The DMV doesn't have the authority to show you any lenience and reduce the...
