    Tuesday Jul 28 | via Worcester Telegram & Gazette 

    The woman credited by her publisher with reinventing the previously male-dominated true crime genre by focusing on the victims has died at age 83. Rule and Bundy met in 1971 and their relationship was mostly a grim coincidence, except that he later confessed to eight murders in the state of Washington. The FBI says Bundy started to kill attractive college students in Washington state around 1974 and was first arrested in 1975, but he later escaped and continued killing.

3 dui's, 1st age 17, 2nd 19 and 24 - Felony in Michigan. Any chance of dropping, lowering or losing felony charge?
Since this time he has received B.A. in History. Hasn't had a drink, fulfilled his probation in 2 1/2 yrs. of 5 yr. sentence. Is working but probably below what he could be doing? Hired a Attorney for the last 2 dui's, never did we receive counsel for any appeal or options that may have been available, like we found out later that you have 42 days to appeal the charge. Did we have option for Appeals? Is this something that should have been brought to our attention? We were so overwhelmed we didn't ask many questions when this was going on? Looking back, we feel like our attorney never gave us any options, he just had us run with the play. Is there anything that can be done?
NO. OWI is one of the felonies that cannot be expunged since it remains on your driving record.
