My wife got a dui and I am deploying in a few months. Will the fact that she is the sole caretaker of our 2 year old help her?
Will the judge take the childcare and work situation into consideration? She works as an accountant full time and i will be gone for 6 months. We have no family around. This is first offense and she had a clear record previously. She was arrested in NH but has a Maine license. She has to drive 5 minutes over the border into NH to get to work in Portsmouth.
It is very important that you retain an attorney for this matter. He/she will be able to help obtain the best possible...

The judge's hands are tied because there are mandatory minimum sentences for any operating under the influence...
Is it possible to get out early on a seven day sentence in county.
First jail time "offense." I have to serve 10 days with 3-4 days served already. I'm just wondering if it's possible to get out even early. Anything I can do? Thanks for your time.
Depends on what you were sentenced to the court order and whether you get good time credit to know way to know without...
Will I be able to get out early during a 7 day sentence.
I took a deal from the D.A's office to avoid a 5 year sentence. Judge sentenced me to 10 days. Take away days I served. (Got arrested Friday night released Monday evening) so I'm guessing 3 days. I'm wondering if any possible way I could get out earlier than 7 days. I also have to complete one year of probation.
I think that answer depends on the jail. Talk to your lawyer (if you had one) and discuss your concerns with him or her....
Will I be able to get a job, (especially those working for the state), if I have a misdemeanor from 'driving to engdanger'?
I was pulled over in Maine and given a physical sobriety test. When brought into the station for a sobriety test I blew a .07. I was originally charged with a OUI, however since it is under the .08 level the DA's offer was to drop the OUI charge and charge me with "driving to endanger" which comes as a misdemeanor, with a 30 day license suspension and $500 fine. Is this an acceptable charge? Would it be in my best interest to try to fight it so that I don't have a record or would it cost me just as much for a lawyer and not be worth it? I'm just worried about getting a job with that on my record, especially because I hope to work for a state run environmental agency.
1. yes you should hire an attorney to advise you after looking at all the facts and evidence might just get it...
Can I get charged an oui for driving on my own private property?
Police came to our house on an unrelated issue, I got arrested for oui while moving my truck from the side yard.
While I cannot speak for Maine law, most states have now defined DUI offenses in such a way that a person can be cited...
Can a class C felony be reduced
Can an OUI offense that caused serious bodily injury be reduced to a misdemeanor in the state of Maine and what mitigating factors would help this to be reduced? For a class C Felony can a suspended sentence be applied?
Anything is possible but no one knows what will happen without knowing the facts of the case, the defendant's criminal...
