Is Driving while Impaired - Alcohol the same as Driving while Visually Impaired?
I was with the prosecuting attorney during the pre-trial. I was charged with possession of Marijuana and Operating while Intoxicated. We made a deal and agreed to have the charge of possession dropped and drop my charge to Driving while Impaired - Alcohol. I was told of all the fines to expect from the prosecuting which is everything for Driving while visibly impaired. $300 fine, 2 - $500 driver responsibility fees. Restricted Licsense for 30 days. 4 points. I understand the prosecuting attorney can lie to me. I understand I should of had a lawyer, I could not afford one and I was not appointed one due to how much I "made" ($10 an hour) Was I duped to getting a DUI/OWI I never heard the Prosecutor ever say the word "Visibly" although he did write down Driving while Impaired -Alcohol. I am afraid I got duped into getting the charge that has a consequence of $100 to $500 fine and 2 Driver responsibility charges of $1000. 6 points. Suspended license. What do you guys think? If you need any more info let me know and thank you so much. (I know, I made a huge mistake and this charge has turned my life around for the better) Sentencing is tomorrow. I know I will figure it out
It is the same thing, just another way of saying it. Driving While Visibly Impaired is the official charge. It is often...
