    Have you ever been in trouble before? If not, you MAY qualify for a diversion program. You definitely need representation. This type of charge can have a negative impact on your employability.

    I need more information to answer. Are you current on mortgages of both homes? Do you have enough money to pay for both houses and still cover your monthly expenses? If you are getting rental income from your son, let me know.

    You should hire an attorney in the Valdosta area and inquire about Diversion. That's a special program designed for first offenders and may be a chance for you to avoid having a conviction on your criminal record. It will probably cost you between $1,000 and $2000. Money well spent...

    Sometimes in this situation a lawyer can negotiate with probation and get everything worked out before you actually get arrested. It just depends on the jurisdiction and the probation officer. It is very important that you select an attorney who practices regularly in the court that you were sentenced in. Also, it would be best if the attorney knows the probation office which is monitoring you.

    Only if the prosecutor dismissed the entire Accusation & then filed a new one charging reckless. Otherwise, you are stuck with it. The reckless driving statute does not mention any use of alcohol.
