I was charged with an MIP in August of 2013 after being caught with an open beer can with an additional 5 beers in my purse. I was cooperative, so I was charged with an infraction MIP rather than a misdemeanor. I understand the judge has no choice but to suspend my drivers license for one year, so I got an attorney. However, with the addition of the DMV and court petition paperwork, she is having me also go to DUI school, letters from my employer, my transcripts, detailed maps and bus schedules, etc. However, I recently spoke with a girl my age who was charged with the same infraction, but she had to provide much less information to the DMV and the court and she was still issued with the restricted license. Is my attorney overworking me? Or is this some new law that's necessary?
