    A case can always be worked out before trial. Most attorneys will plead their clients not guilty at arraignment to give time to investigate the case and determine if the case will be worked out or whether the case is going to trial.

    You need to hire an attorney to contact the court, file an entry of appearance, and get the warrant set aside to get you a new court date. The Cobb County courts respond fairly well to those request. If I can be of help please call me at 404-217-6978

    It will be your first DUI, but your prior charge will affect how the prosecutor and court treat your case. A prior reduction to reckless driving on a DUI will cause the prosecutor to look more harshly at you this time around. I would certainly recommend hiring an attorney in preparation for court. If you have any other questions, feel free to give me a call.

    You need to sit down and consult with an attorney right away. When you are charged with a DUI there may be immediate concerns regarding your driver's license, not to mention the DUI itself. When is your court date?

    No. The charges cannot be reduced to a misdemeanor. But, once the case is closed under first offender the arrest and conviction will be sealed and she will be adjudicated "not guilty" of the offense. In situations like this charges are treated the same -- felony or misdemeanor.

    Jail, community service, probation, fines, and the conviction will stay on his record forever. I would have your boyfriend talk to a few attorneys about representation.

    If your first case was dropped to a reckless, you shouldn't have an issue getting a permit if the administrative suspension is taking care of properly. Hire an attorney and make sure the case is handled appropriately. When is your court date?

    A "Count" is just one "charge". The prosecutor may charge many "counts" in a crime. It is the way the charges or crimes are numbered in the indictment or accusation.
