I was charged with DUI after blowing a .09 in February in a county where I have no contacts and had a difficult time getting a reference for a good attorney. Nevertheless, the attorney I have chosen just would like me to plead to the Impaired and hasn't seemed to concerned with viewing the evidence. First pre-trial he requested the videotape, he still hasn't received it and I had another court date for jury selection so he then had me plead impaired with a contingency of the videotape. Now my sentencing date is in 3 weeks and he is saying we may never receive the tape - I have a problem with the fact that the state does not have to show this evidence and believe my attorney needs to look at it and the datamaster collaborations. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciatedThanks for your advice about the communication, I have done all of that with him and so has my husband - I just chose a bad lawyer who tells me continuously "it's not a big deal". Okay, the in car video was requested on March 24th and he still hasn't received it. Let me give you a little more of the story, the officers said they pulled me over because they received 2 phone calls about my driving, they marked weaving, straddling and drifing for cause of stop however, I had three customers with me and my passenger blew a .000 and drove my vehicle away, he say's my driving was fine. I also only had 3 beers over 4 hours and have GERD. My lawyer says that GERD is not a defense. I feel they should at least have to provide the video, but my lawyer is saying more than likely they have destroyed it, but keeps requesting it.
