My husband got a DWI conviction and the lawyer said he could only get him a deal for five years in jail, so my husband just left to Mexico and didn't show up to court. Can a lawyer take care of that case for him without him having to be here?
NO the State's Attorney is highly unlikely to willing to talk about the case at all unless he is present or at least lawfully on bond. His case must be very bad. However, you should know that another attorney can review the case and give you a second opinion if you wish, which might change his mind about staying in Mexico.
