Can a 8 year old DUI conviction (plead no contest), be appealed?
Hello, I am trying to get some information on an old DUI case I had back in 2007. I plead no contest to the DUI based off my lawyers recommendation. Unfortunately, 2 years ago I was arrested and accused of theft... luckily, that case was dropped and went to "nolle prosequi". Which is great, however the arrest is still on my record and shows up on internet pages. I filed to expunge the arrest of theft, but it was denied because of my DUI in 2007. I was told by my lawyer that I should look into an appeals lawyer, that could potentially research my case back in 2007 and potentially find something that would remove it from my record so I can pursue expungement of the theft arrest. She said that chances are the court will not want to fight it and just throw it out because it is so old.
There is no procedural mechanism to re-open an 8 year old DUI now. The time for direct appeal is over as well as any...

Can you have a reevaluation for therapy hours
I'm currently on probation for a dui in Colorado and my origional probation officer passed away which prevented me from getting timely answers. I was sentenced from him 56 hours of therapy that even puzzled my therapist to why I had so many hours. I do not have a problem with alcohol, nor does my therapist think I have an issue with alcohol. Just a bad decision to drink and drive the one time. I was wondering if there was a way to lower my therapy hours or get rid of them altogether. I should have been referred to a therapist but instead he decided to make the decision of my therapy.
You may want to consider filing a Motion to Modify Probation. See if your therapist and probation officer would support...
