My 1st was 17 years ago and then i received 2 within a year period. I am college degreed and have no other criminal record and had a successful job. I blew a .22 and entered rehab. The judge in Oakland county still convicted me of a felony OWI which is on my record forever. I know people who have had 8 owi's that still don't have a felony. My attorney didnt' even attempt to lessen the charge. Could and should he have? Is there anything I can do after the fact?
