Ok I am going 2 try, my next court date is in Oct 10th!
DO NOT hesitate. Each day that passes it becomes a bigger challenge for your attorney, and you become more desparate. Contact your state bar association--they have a lawyer referral service desgned to match you to a lawyer in your area.
I've been given the pre trial diversion option, I didn't take it assuming I would b able 2 fight this & prove my innocence! But it is still avail 2 me! Now I'm just afraid if I try 2 proceed w/ my case, I will end up paying more $, than if I had just settled 4 the plea! I'm a military spouse, separated & can still speak w/ an attorney but they only b able 2 give me advise not represent me! Im really running out of time! I'm not so sure after reading everyone's reply! Principles has nothing 2 do w/ this, I had found a fone & picked it up! Didn't give it right away, because I had gotten pulled 2 the bar 4some drinks & then made our way 2 the dance floor! Not even mins later, cops were wanting 2 talk 2 us!
