Arrested in my front yard for being drunk and tearing stuff up with my truck- thought it was my private property - two felonies
A year ago I got really drunk at my house jumped into my truck, in my private drive way,and tore up the lovely yard that the wife likes so much and pushed over my storage shed. Mind you no one was at the house at the time but I was arrested and charged with agrivated DUI , criminal mischief, criminal endangerment. I did all this damage then turned my truck off and waited in my yard for about 2 minutes until the police showed up. My attorney , which my wife use to work for, wasn't much help- got a plea agreement that cancelled the DUI but kept the other two which are felonies. Do you think this was handled properly? I know these small towns make up their own rules as in my case- wife and father-in-law, which I live right across the street from,influenced the police- cant be right?

Should I fight this DUI? Entrapment?
I was at a friends house when her boyfriend came home extremely intoxicated. He collapsed on the floor and was not breathing. The last time I've seen someone collapse was my father when he passed away. This scared me badly. I was breathing into him mouth to mouth when he gasped for air. This happened 4 times before his girlfriend called for an ambul ance. When they arrived josh took off out the back door. After questioning I must have said 50 times I just want to go home. One officer asked where I lived before he could answer me the other said no u aren't getting a ride anywhere. I calmed Lauren down about 20min later I pulled out the driveway and the headlights came on and I got a DUI. I did not blow so I had blood taken. I had practically begged for a ride.

How do I deal with a case that was filed in one state if I am living in a different one and can not make it to my date?
I am a college student from Montana who received a minor in consumption (MIC) while I was at school in Arizona. My court date is scheduled for June 10th but I am back home for the summer so I am unable to get down to Arizona for the scheduled date. They denied my request for a continuance so I am trying to figure out what ways I can take care of it without going down there. I was told there are things I can do without going down there, but I am not sure what those things are.
First of all, I would like to point out that I am an attorney licensed to practice law in Montana, not Arizona, so I am...
