I am currently on probation for a misdemeanor DWI in Nassau county, I stumbled across articles about probation reduction and was curious as to how that worked I have served 1 year ( as of November ) of a 3 year probation sentence. I understand that according to most articles I should wait until I am halfway through my probation. Considering that I am employed, have never violated probation or failed any drug test I have been given is this a sensible thing for me to ask my probation officer about ? Secondly do I need an attorney to file such a request with the court and should it be the same attorney who defended me during the DWI ?
The definition, charges, and penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) vary by state and depend on a number of factors.
After you are arrested for DUI, getting the charges against you dropped or reduced will require you to develop a defense.
