Yes, you are likely to end up with can do probation, community service, car breathalyzer but no jail if this is your first offense. Your court appointed attorney has many cases and will eventually talk to you about your case. In the meantime, relax and look forward to moving your case forward.
You don't deserve a DUI/DWI because you drank alcohol and were unable to stay awake and caused a collision? If you had no alcohol, but were intoxicated with medication, you should NOT have been driving, especially if you were tired. The consequence of insomnia is that you should not drive when you TOO TIRED to drive safely, especially if you are taking medication or alcohol that can intox you to any degree whatsoever. It's not just your safety, but your passengers and anyone on the road with you.
Those are all good questions, but you didn't address the important issue-your unhealthy relationship to alcohol. You are either an addict, a very careless person or both. You should be revoked and removed from the highway if you are going to continue drinking and driving, so that argues for revocation. On the other hand, if you actually make serious rehab education and counseling, then the courts should give you a chance to make BIG changes in your life. DWI 2d education is much more likely to...
A video is usually more help than harm because it allows an expert to disagree with officer when appropriate and shows everyone what actually happened.

There is no harm likely if you approach the probation officer assigned to the court to request that the interlock be removed. You should not approach the judge without an attorney or the support of the probation officer in...
Why are you trying to handle this by yourself? Do you also repair your cars, do your own dental and diagnose and treat all the diseases of you and your family? Was anyone injured? If not, are the damages less than $10K, so that you can take the case to a JP court? Some time spent with an experienced car accident attorney would be very wise and probably can be done in a free consultation.
OK fine to file speedy trial motion, but probably a total waste of time. It is time for a 2d opinion from an experienced DWI attorney about your case. Maybe you are a victim of an inefficient court, so maybe no attorney could do any better. Maybe-a lawyer who should be dropped? You won't get any help from this forum. You need advice from someone who knows the court and the system that you are dealing with.
