Should I attempt to reduce sentence?
I got pulled over in novi, MI. For speeding/dwls (1st offense), A few days later I got a owi(3rd). Well when I got sentenced for the 1st offense dwls they gave a recommendation of 2 years of probation and 5 days in jail. Well I tried to plea, and I got 1 year probation, 12 weeks counseling, a black box in my car, Testing on a driving simulator, 50 hours of community service, and I ended up paying $1350 in fines/fees. when I got sentenced for my owi I got into a sobriety court program, that allows me to have a restricted license and extensive probation ( weekly therapy, work program, AA, meetings with judge and probation officer ). My question is... Since I'm doing all of this stuff for my sobriety court, should I try and get my overkill sentence reduced for the DWLS?
Are they in the same District Court? If so, you may have a decent chance of getting the two probations "consolidated,"...

Course of Action to get Drunk and Disorderly Reduced?
I was arrested for disorderly conduct- public intoxication for mouthing off to a police officer while drunk and walking away from a bar in Michigan. The comment was not profane, derogatory, or racist but it was rude and I am not proud of my behavior. I spent the night in jail and blew a .12. I am a 26 year old graduate student and I do not want to have this on my record. What is my best course of action to get this charge reduced or dismissed? Should I get an attorney for this or should I set up a meeting with the prosecutor by myself? Thank you for your help!
If you were arrested for just disorderly conduct, then that is only a misdemeanor in Michigan so you should consider...
Any chance of 3rd Dui in Michigan being dismissed?
Received 3rd DUI in Michigan February of this year. Was notified by Attorney night before Prelim to waive it because the local prosecutor was not willing to make a deal. My attorney did not know whether the blood results were in and when he asked they said they were but even the prosecutor did not have the results. Case was bound to federal court. I have been sober 4 months, attend outpatient therapy, have 4 kids, full time job. I am being told I will have to do at least 30 days in jail. I will lose everything. My attorney almost seems to be against me , not for me. He told me the local prosecutor based his decision simply on my past...no one seems to care what I am doing to better myself. I am an alchoholic! Thanks
Without taking a look at your case at all, I can tell you that in general a good attorney probably has about a 20%...
My daughter violated her non-reporting probation in a different city.
My step-daughter had received a ticket in Westland, MI in Sept. of 2010 and was sentenced to 1 year non reporting probation and court fees. Since then, she was just arrested with a DWI in Plymouth. I was told that her probation officer won't know because this happened in a different city. My question is how will her probation officer know that she has violated her probation, and will she deal with both separately, at both courts? How will each court handle this? Will the judge sentence her to jail time??
Hello there, More than likely the traffic citation isn't going to affect her DWI probation. Court's don't revoke...
