  • I got a probation violation and falsifying documents what can i do not to get jail time

    I had community service and i falsified the hours i had completed

    Adam’s Answer

    You should contact a good criminal defense attorney in Springfield to advise you on this. Obviously falsifying your community service hours for your probation was the wrong thing to do.
    Judges take probation terms very seriously.

  • Should i request a DMV hearing

    Even if I don't know the results of my Breathalyzer test? How much does it cost to obtain the police departments copy of the report the day I was pulled over for a DUI? I know I will probably get convicted of a first (AND LAST) offense DUI - Stup...

    Adam’s Answer

    ALWAYS request a DMV hearing.

    Why request one? There are many good reasons to request a hearing, some of which you point out in your above question: you don't know the results of your breath test, you don't know if the proper procedure was followed and you don't know your rights to contest this DMV administrative action. Yes you should request a DMV hearing.

    (Also the added benefit to requesting a DMV hearing is that a stay is placed on the suspension action until the hearing is held and a decision is reached. This "stay" is often longer than the 30 day temporary suspended license that you were given at your DUI arrest)

    In California, someone in your position would need to go to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Oklahoma most likely has a similar department where you can go sort this issue out.

    Adam’s Answer

    You have the right to an attorney in a misdemeanor criminal case against you, even if you cannot afford one, a public defender should be appointed to represent you. You should ask for a public defender at your next court date and consult with them about the specific facts of your case. The public defender exists to represent those who cannot afford private counsel in cases such as this.

    Adam’s Answer

    The court usually gives you a list of certified treatment programs. You can also look online at the link suggested in a previous answer to your question. The schedule of the class is determined by the individual school, so once you have found a certified program in your area you should call them to determine their schedule.

  • I have been charged with PC243E1 and PC245 A1. Will a court appointed lawyer help me at all?

    Do these lawyers do the best they can do or should I hire a private attorney? What should I do if I am offered a plea bargain? If I turn it down, will I be offered another deal?

    Adam’s Answer

    There are many excellent court appointed lawyers who work diligently for their clients. The real question is if you are eligible for the services of court appointed counsel or if you need to hire a private attorney. This is based on your income and ability to pay. The court will look at this to see if you qualify.
