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...
What to expect on sentencing date and what to take or not take with me. It is in Jefferson County CO
In a month I am going to sentencing and expected to get some jail time for a DUI (2nd) I know I should expect to be taken into custody that day after sentencing but what should or shouldnt I take. I want to take my phone so i have phone numbers and so i have it when i get out. I know I will turn in my stuff to the jail but will I get it back or whats the process? Do I take my wallet with ID and money? What about my contacts? I need to wear them to see but I also need my solution because i have to take them out at night. am I allowed them? i dont have glasses.

You'll have to check with the jail to find out what the Rules are regarding your possessions. I would suggest that you...
Do females go to a regular jail cell or halfway house for DUI sentencing in Jefferson County CO?
I recently took a guilty plea for DUI. It is my second in 5 years. When talking and going over everything with the DA I asked him how the booking working worked and where I would go. This is in jefferson county. He said I would stand in front of the judge and get sentenced then be taken into custody. He said I would be taken to a halfway house type of place. This took me by complete suprise. I asked why not a normal jail cell and he said they dont have one for jeffco. I know there is a jail but Im just trying to figure out if I will be going to a actual jail cell or halfway house. anyone know? He did say I could do work release. If I am at a halfway house what is the difference or what will be different about what I have to do or pay or get out for work? thanks!
Why do you doubt what the DA Told you? You have several questions which you should address with the halfway house.
Alchohol education level 2 online classes
I need to sign up for alcohol education level 2 classes for my second (and last) DUI. I was about to sing up for at a place in Lakewood but then saw there are online classes available through different sources. I was ticketed in by lakewood and everything is in jefferson county. Can i sign up for an online class to: 1. save the embarassment of going to class 2. knock out the classes quicker (before court date to look good on my record) I dont know how credible or if the court syste will take these. any insights or thoughts would be helpful. Also, do you know price wise how these stack up againt going somewhere? the last thing i hate t do is sign up and do it online then not get credit for it and be out money. thanks!
Just check to make sure that the online classes are approved by the court and if they are go ahead and take tmem. Good luck!

If you cannot afford a private attorney, make your first court appearance and request court-appointed counsel.
