Should I hire a DUI Lawyer or Stick with the public defender?
I got into an accident in Queens, New York and my car got wrecked. The person I hit, his car was alright, and left. I was inside the car while my friend took a look at my car outside. Two police officers came out of a train station came over. The car wasn't moving. Fast forward, I blew a .18 BAC. I'm getting charged for DWI and Aggravated DWI. This is my first offense and I don't have any prior convictions. I know since I blew so high and it's an aggravated DWI, I'm just looking maybe reduce it but I just really don't want to do any jail time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Can I get early release from felony dwi probation?
I was convicted of felony dwi in 2011 and sentenced to 5 years probation and 90 days jail time. I have followed all my terms and not been rearrested, haven't failed any drug test (never was submitted to 1). The one thing is I have fallen behind with my probation payments ($30/month) due to periods of unemployment and very low paying jobs. Is there a possibility I may be granted early release a couple a months in advance and continue to pay the fee afterwards? I need to try to get my drivers license back to be able to recertify and resume my career. Thanks for your time.
Based on what your wrote it is not likely. But you should check with the attorney who represented you.
