Was this an appropriate sentence for a first time dui? did my lawyer help at all?
i paid for a lawyer who promised me on consultation that there was a good chance he could get it dropped to a reckless driving charge. when we went to court i got quite a bit more than that $1000 fine, 180 days in jail with 174 suspended, 2 years supervised probation. now i understand i did blow quite high, my bac was a .191. but it seems like my lawyer did nothing to fight for me. just did what the prosecutor asked and then asked for a withheld judgement, and promised i wouldn't do it again. the days leading up to the court appearance i could get no information from him or his office, they wouldn't even tell me what they were working on to help me. after sentencing i asked him if i was going to have to carry an sr22 he told me no. well turns out i have to.

My ex was arrested for drunk & disorderly conduct during his time W/ the kids. I don't feel safe with them there. What can I do?
He's had a history of alcohol abuse and has other arrest records (I believe they're all pertaining to Drunk and Disorderly conduct) for around 15 years. He's promised time and time again that he would not drink with the kids under his care. His parents went and got them last night after he was arrested, but gave them back to him today. They saw the whole ordeal and were quite traumatized, and hiding at the neighbor's house. His girlfriend is also leaving our kids (8 & 4) alone with her very immature 10 year old for 2-3 hours at a time. I'm concerned for the physical, mental and emotional safety of my kids. Aside from recent events we've been very amicable. He lives in WI and I'm in ID. I just don't know what my options are.
