    It certainly is not a good spot to be in. However, even with the best of circumstances, you can be jailed on your 1st DWI. You definitely need a DWI Attorney to act as a go-between and take some of the heat off of you that you can't do yourself.

    If one person says "guilty" we call that a hung jury--assuming that one person refuses to budge off of their position. The DA can retry with a different jury.

  3. My probation rules say, "Permit your PO to visit you at your home, work,.." This means they can come INSIDE my house whenever?

    It may seem like a huge invasion of your privacy--and it is--but your PO can perform a warrantless search of your home. The scope and extent can be restricted by state law, but for all intents and purposes, you will just have to suffer through it. If you meet them at the door, you don't have to invite them in for dinner, but be accommodating to make the process go as smoothly as possible.

    I certainly understand your frustration and concern--you are trying to help your husband after all. Unfortunately, this is one thing you cannot do for him. It is considered practicing law without a license.

    Not only can you lose your CDL, but if the truck belongs to you, you can lose that to an asset seizure as well, on top of a host of other unsavory consequences. You need to contact a criminal defense attorney post haste.

  6. I completed a DUI diversion & received reckless driving conviction with adjudication withheld. How can I seal this result?

    Technically, no you do not need an attorney to seal your records, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea. It can be a drawn out process and the fee that you are paying likely includes filing fees to the court. The value of having an attorney handle the entire process versus you handling it on your own, only you can decide.

    Yes it is possible to get something done reasonable quickly as well as possibly avoiding jail, depending upon what you are willing to do about this. This will likely take a couple months minimum. Like everything else you get what you pay for, so it wont be cheap, and I don't suggest you look for lowest cost to you to be the deciding factor. If you get an acceptable plea deal--if that is the direction you want to go--it's generally required for you to appear before the judge to plea in person,...

    I would definitely hire an attorney as soon as possible. As Ms. Jaggers points out, you may be able to reach an agreement with your attorney on a modification before a violation is filed--best case scenario and possible if you act quickly. If you are unable to do this, and a violation is filed, you can have a contested hearing and address it from there. In the second scenario, you do not have to agree to the amendment just because your PO writes it up.

    It's possible, yes. And depending on the specifics of the case, probable. How? you ask. Let's say, for example, the person staying in your home is asked by the police where he got the cocaine, and he responds, I was going through the person who owns the house personal items and I found it. While more would be involved before charges are filed, this is one way that a finger pointed at you could lead the police to go down the road to arrest and charges. Consider getting an attorney now and say...

    You need to have your attorney do any "denial" for you. You are not going to go far when you already know it's going to come back dirty.
