    Thursday Jul 14 | via Daily Herald 

    But DuPage County prosecutors this week have taken the rare step of asking a judge to remove a defense attorney from a case. Tim Diamond, chief of the DuPage County State's Attorney's Criminal Bureau, filed a motion Thursday to have defense attorney Richard Kayne disqualified from representing a Naperville man charged with two counts of attempted murder because Kayne also represents the man's mother, who is charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse in a separate case.

Do I need another attorney for my second formal dui hearing?
I have a revoked license. At my first hearing, I was given a driving permit, not full reinstatement. 9 months is up, and I have my second hearing scheduled. I have the updated evaluation done, with nothing new or problems. Do I need to have another attorney, this time?
You would be well advised to hire counsel for your second formal hearing.
Ex-wife driving our 2 boys around while drunk/impaired. What can I do or rights do I have as the boys' father to protect them?
Divorced for 5 years now...wife & I share joint custody but our two boys, ages 15 & 12, live with their mother. While she always drank alcohol before, after the divorce it escalated to the point she was passing out on the couch at night in front of the boys. In addition, she's been on meds for depression & anxiety that she's drinking on top of as well. My boys are experiencing her erratic moods but most upsetting is that she has been driving them to various places/activities while impaired/intoxicated. While I don't believe she's been caught by the police, my older son has expressed a couple times now being afraid while riding in the car that she has narrowly avoided accidents & blown red lights. My boys love their mother & I know how badly it would upset them if they were forced to come live with me simply due to losing their lifelong friends & having to change schools. I don't want them to be scarred emotionally via the court system or testifying against their mother. I'm at a loss as to what I can or should do going forward. Its come to my attention she's been going to AA meetings but I'm aware she's still drinking.
This is an urgent matter. You need a lawyer involved immediately. Your boys must be told to NOT GET IN THE CAR WITH...
Receiving message "Disabled Heating Voltage enter code (21942)??
I am receiving a message on the device stating "disabled heating voltage enter code 21942). At first it said "you may start the vehicle" then the car wouldn't start so I turned it off and tried again. It let me do the sample and then stated disable heating voltage and a few other errors. I didn't even start the car and it told me to pull over now after it said you may start the vehicle. As I walked in the house to call ADS the car started beeping. I went out and unlocked it and it stopped. I tried it again and now it just gives me the disabled heating voltage message. What is this? I can't get in contact with ADS as it is Sat and Sun. What could this mean?
Best guess is a fuse failure in your vehicle. Go to your vendor's website and look in the FAQ section. Also email the...

What will likely be my punishment for receiving a MIP and drunk/ disorderly persons arrest in Allegan County Michigan?
Over the weekend, my boyfriend was arrested for a DUI and I was arrested for minor in possession of alcohol and drunk/disorderly person. I spent about 15 hours in jail and my car was towed because my boyfriend was driving it. I blew a .350 and I gave the officers a lot of attitude in my drunken stupor. I am wondering what will most likely be my punishment with an experienced lawyer, and if I should plead guilty or not guilty.
