I want to know what court fees can be waived in criminal court. I went to court for DUI. The judge offered 2 days in jail or AWP program and a fine of $1800 plus go to DUI class for 3 months ($580) plus $250 to DMV. I want to know would I qualify for wett reckless? Alcohol level was .11% so I'm told. The problem is that I cannot afford any of this. I wasn't aware that I had to pay a $50 processing fee to see a public defender. I am on unemployment not by choice and I support 7 people on it. Can a lawyer or PD reduce the fees? I know they cannot reduce or waive the fees for DUI class. $1800 is a bit much and I cannot begin to make payment arrangements. Is there another way? Because I stated I couldn't pay the fees now I have to see a public defender. Will the judge offer still stand?The judge's offer also include 3 years informal probation. The judge didn't order $250 for DMV. That's the restricted license fee. By me not entering any plea, will the defender's offer be more or less than what the judge offered. I was told that the judge offered the "MINIMAL STANDARD". I'm not looking for more than what the judge offered but I need the fees reduced, considerably! I hope I didn't screw myself because I told the judge I could not afford it so she referred me to the Public defender and told me she's entering a plea of not guilty. I would've taken her offer but the $1800 is what I got hung up on.
