What can I expect for a reasonable plea bargain? Is there any chance of a reduced sentence such as a reckless or wet reckless?
Arrested for a DUI 2nd in the state of South Dakota with a BAC of .097. My first DUI came 6 years ago and had an almost identical BAC. Neither of the arrests were a result of driving recklessly and no injuries were involved (first I was actually parked at a gas station, second I was doing 35 in a 25 mph zone). I have already completed an alcohol evaluation (which showed the lowest scores for an alcohol problem) and will start alcohol classes before the initial court appearance. I am a teacher and just recently obtained my principal license as well. This 2nd DUI could potentially keep me from every becoming a school principal.

How is license reinstatement affected by out of state DUI?
I reside in South Dakota and got a DUI while in Oklahoma (SD license). As I understand, OK requires 180 days revocation for a 1st offense and 18mo reinstatement period with an interlock device in certain instances. Am I required to have my license suspended for 180 days rather than the amount of time required for SD first offenses? Also, does SD recognize the 18 month interlock mandate after the revocation is served?

Work permit for stay at home mom?
I was recently picked up for DUI 2nd. I have a special needs son who has therapy several times a week and attends public school only part time. I live 20 miles from the nearest therapy site. Hopefully I'll be able to obtain a work permit (self employed) but this doesn't cover therapy/school issues. Do the courts basically state that stay-at-home moms and/or homeschooling moms (especially with a special needs child) don't have a "JOB?" Hoping to find some way to keep attending therapy.
As it has been 3 days and no one from your state has answered, you really need to consult with a local DUI defense...
