The only shot you have is if you are successful in having the case reopened by filing a petition for post conviction relief. These motions are not routinely granted abd are supposed to be filed within 2 years after the judgment becomes final. However, there are a limited number of circumstances where you can get around the 2 year time restriction. Unfortunately, if you are unsuccessful, the conviction remains on your record for 75 years. If you need more info, just call.

Please call me. I am here to help.
What evidence is there that alcohol or any other controlled substance was involved? Did anyone see you drinking or using drugs before the accident? Were there any texts about you drinking or getting hammered? Is there a credit card receipt from a bar or restaurant? Can anyone testify you were driving? What circumstantial evidence of driving exists? You and your car didn't appear out of thin air.
What are you planning to do? Show up at the police station and tell them that you shot someone? That would be awful! If the police are looking for you, you can turn yourself in. But only tell them who you are - not what you may have done. Make sure you say NOTHING about what happened! Wait until you have a lawyer present no matter what the police tell you. Exercise your right to remain silent!
I would hire a lawyer because it is important that you make the right decisions. For example, you son may not want to have a Formal Review Hearing at the DMV. He may be able to get a restricted permit instead without running the risk of not being able to drive for 90-days. I wrote a guide about 1st offenders & DUI that is posted on my AVVO profile page.

No defense? Just throwing in the towel? Yes, you can have your probation transferred. My suggestion is to hire an attorney to at least access your case. Make sure you have no defense before you take a plea.
