    I would need a lot more information in order to really give an answer....but it sounds like your son already hired an attorney to help him sort this out, and that attorney doesn't think there is much he can do. But that is not the last word. You can always consult with other attorneys. Many, like I do, offer free consults on these types of cases. Mike

    If you already saw the video, you probably already have a lawyer helping you on this.....

    The only thing you can do is enter your Not Guilty plea at this point....you can try to handle this yourself, but in my 20+ years of experience, the likelihood that you would win at trial on your own is not very good. You will be a lot more successful at trial using an attorney. Most, like myself, offer free consults to have a better discussion about the circumstances. You should take advantage of this and call a few.

    Unfortunately, this has reached the stage where a lawyer will be necessary. If you can't afford private counsel, pay the fee to apply for the public defender.

    I am local to the area, and have been in that court many times. You can always request discovery, and try to contest the ticket. In my 20+ years, I can honestly say that a few ( and I mean VERY few) people have proceeded to trial and been able to win a contested case. There is a reason why attorneys have better success rates-they are trained and experienced. And, although it isn't fair, I find Judges are more tolerant of attorneys trying cases in their courtroom. But you need to weigh the...

    The bigger issue is the warrant.....generally speaking, if you are unfortunate enough to get pulled over and the officer notices an outstanding warrant, you would most likely be visiting the police station. I would hire an attorney to get the matter scheduled for Court. It will be easier and maybe even cheaper than doing this yourself. Mike

    Did he have someone hold your keys after he put you in the squad car? You need a lawyer. You were charged with a DUI. You need to get all the discovery reviewed. You need to see if there are possible defenses based on the discovery. You may need to have the other people who were with you interviewed. These cases are brought to trial quickly, so get started looking for the right lawyer NOW. Many lawyers, like myself, offer free consults on cases like this.
