My husband no question, has a drinking problem, and a problem with common sense too it seems. He had his first dwi in2008. He was put on probation with a suspended sentence. He was charged with a level4 dwi. His 2nd dwi was in 2009. He was sentenced 24 months in doc with 90 day DART program. He was sentenced on April 7th 2010. Im 3 months pregnant, so my husband appealed the sentence and his appeal date is June 14th 2010.

Is it legal for D.A. to Judge Shop in DUI or any criminal case?
While it would be next to impossible to prove but say if you or your attorney could prove that a D.A. purposely skipped certain judges in superior court and "magically" or purposefully schedule you to the (T2) second schedule trial after guilty and pleas when a historically known harsh DUI sentencing judge came up is that legal? Or is there a back office system that automatically schedules these cases as they come up? As a defendant with a long open case I feel that the D.A. definitely did some Judge Shopping. Reading about the Baltimore "judge shopping" allegation brought this to mind as thankfully my case has been resolved but wanted to know if that was legal either way.
I cannot speak for North Carolina but the issue arose in Illinois back in 1990 in connection with the prosecution's...
