I was charged with a DUI on a scooter, but was not pulled over by an officer ,
This is my 4th in 6 years , but was not driving this time, have been sober since my arrest August 23 the day before my birthday, but there was 2 witnesses , a waitress in sir pizza and a customer , but they waited for me to go outside and the called the police so I waited , so it's been taking a long time , I thought my lawyer was going to take care of it in the beginning because the witness were not there and now they have been subpoenaed for Nov 3, at one time the district attorney called me up and said he was going to take care of it on the next court date and my lawyer just kept on continuing it. Would as meetings help me with my case , I have a good job and I am a good person
Treatment, AA, etc., certainly helps if you reach sentencing and may cause the prosecutor to take mercy on you. You...

Arrested for DWI. What to expect from attorney, and can I see the state's evidence against me?
Last month I was pulled over and arrested for suspected DWI. I hired an attorney and met with him briefly to discuss the facts of the case. Since then, my case has been continued once. I'm new to all this and have 2 questions: #1 - When should I expect to hear from my attorney regarding whether he thinks I should plead guilty or go to trial? I'm a little worried that I won't learn of his recommendation until I actually show up for court. Do most attorneys discuss this with clients before their actual court date in case the client has additional questions? #2 - Is it possible for me to personally get copies of the evidence that the state has against me (e.g., patrol car video, officer's report, etc.), and is this only possible if the case goes to trial? Thanks in advance!
You should really speak to the attorney you hired and pose these questions.
Can you do community service before going to court in NC, and how does community service work in general?
I was arrested and charged with a DWI in Randolph County. I have hired an attorney. A friend told me that it was possible to perform community service work prior to going to court, and that this might even save some money. Is this true? Also, in North Carolina, does court-ordered community service work have to be performed in the same county as the conviction? I live in a different county from the one where my case is pending. How do you go about finding an organization to perform your court-ordered community service?
I can't speak for Randolph County, so your lawyer would be a better resource for your question as to the community...
