You did the right thing reporting your recent arrest to your probation officer. Now, you should retain a DWI lawyer to defend you on your new charges. He or she will probably be able to at least get the charge reduced to a DWAI if not out right dismissed depending on the specific facts and circumstances of your case. However, prior results do not guarantee future outcomes.He or she should also be able to assist you in resolving your probation issues. Good luck
You did the right thing. First, you are obligated to report any new criminal cases to your probation officer. If you failed to report the arrest and your probation officer found out about your arrest, he could easily violate your probation and lock you up pending a probation violation hearing. You most likely scored some points by being honest with your probation officer. Keep a good relationship with your probation officer and it will help you in the future.
Now go hire a DUI attorney.
