My friend got a DUI in manassas what should he do moving forward?
What are the consequences if he goes to court without a lawyer, is there any chance of expungement since it is a first offense? What the worst case and best case scenario?

Charged with DUI in Virginia, but on PBJ in Maryland also for DUI charge.
I was stopped and arrested for DWI and Refusal in Virginia(Both 1st Offenses). I also received a PBJ judgment from Maryland for DUI(1st Offense) at the beginning of this year. What types of penalties could I face from these two charges and the possible probation violation charge? My residence state is in Maryland.

Should I get a continuance or appeal my case? Plea was dropped to reckless, $750 fine, 5 days jail, interlock, 6 mths restricted
I recently got arrested for a DWI in Prince William County. My first time ever getting pulled over (supposedly going 50 in a 35 but we were already in the 45mph zone when I pulled over), I panicked and did admit to having two drinks earlier in the night when asked. Officer asked me to step out of the vehicle and perform the field sobriety tests; HGN, Walk and Turn 9 steps heel to toe counting out loud, Alphabet E-X, then standing on one leg raising the other one 6 in. off the ground and counting until he told me to stop (I counted up to 15- mississippi). I believe I performed these field test perfectly fine, but the breathalyzer is what killed it for me, .09 for PBT. ETD was .08. I have a clean record and +5 pts driving record. I don't find my deal to be quite fair.
Dropping a DUI to a reckless is a fair offer. Most attorneys offer a free consultation, so you should sit down with...

Under the federal statute authorizing the deferred action renewal, a DUI is enough to derail the process. You will...
My child's father gets summer time visitation. He has a court date during his visitation for a DWI.
I moved out of state over a year and a half ago. My child's father gets summer time visitation. I have learned recently that he has had 2 charges within a month for an open container while driving and a DWI just a week ago. His court date for his DWI is scheduled for a few days after he is scheduled to pick up my child. Is there any way that I can hold visitation until after his court dates. I am concerned for my child's safety as well as the possibility of him recieving jail time during his visitation
If you refuse to comply with the court-ordered visitation then you could be in contempt of court and the father could...
