DWI: Plea to Obstruction or go to Trial?
I was arrested for a DWI about 6 months ago. I was pulled over for running a red light and swerving. In my video I am polite and have good coordination but I still technically failed the sobriety tests (honestly it seems like they are made to be failed, in my opinion.) I blew over at .13, I know it's high and I'm honestly not sure how it is so high considering I was mindful of my consumption during a work party. The plea bargain the prosecutors have offered is to take differed adjudication on Obstruction of a Highway. I know at first that seems like a pretty nice deal, but that means that there is no way to expunge it in the future. Unfortunately in my line of work, employers would have access to sealed records so an expungement is my only option. I know that charges are only eligible for expungement if they are dismissed or found not guilty. With that all said, would it be wise to accept the plea deal and live on with a record of Obstruction or take my chances at trial in hopes of a not guilty verdict but also risk of being found guilty of the dwi...?
You really should be having this heart to heart with your lawyer. Your lawyer has reviewed the evidence. We have not...
Question about dwi/dui?
Idk if a dui is for a minor and dwi is for over 21 but i had an arrest warrant in 2015 and didnt really know what it was. I was 20 years old. I knew it had to do something with being intoxicated or under the influence but i called to the city municipal court for almost a year and never got any information back. The incident happened on august 11 2015 and i got arrested august 11 2016 for that warrant during a traffic stop for speeding. I was 21 at this point. I went to the county jail and am currently on probation til august this year. My question is that i wasnt found with alcohol only drug paraphernalia and was given the dwi with all the bells and whistles. Was it right for the court to charge me with a dwi when the incident happened a year prior?
