    There are a lot of factors. The prosecutor has to look at your performance on the standardized field sobriety tests and the results of any scientific testing such as breath or blood test results. www.austincriminaldefenseattorney.com

    If you're awaiting sentencing then you should already have an attorney. This is a question that that they should answer. If your current attorney doesn't handle occupational licenses, then you need a referral to someone who does. If you are representing yourself in this entire process, you shouldn't be. Even with probation, you could be looking at up to six months in jail. This is day for day time.

    Yes he needs a lawyer. In certain circumstances the person my be able to receive probation. It is not a defense that the "victim" tricked the person into having sex. A person under 17 cannot legally consent. A good lawyer may however be able to use any mitigating factors in reducing any possible sentence.

    Many public defenders are very good. The problem with the public defender is that you can't change. If you're not comfortable given the fact that you have two months you're probably okay to hire your own lawyer. You should look for one through an organization like the national college for DUI defense lawyers. www.austincriminaldefenseattorney.com 512 – 495 – 1813 Austin DWI lawyer

    No. A lawyer can contest the validity of the confession. At this point he needs to not talk to anyone other than a lawyer. These are very serous charges. In my 20 years as an Austin Criminal Defense Lawyer, I've seen many confession cases and the defendant has always needed the help of an attorney.
