I was charged with my third DWI in August 2006, and served 3 1/2 month in county jail. Upon my release I was sentenced to 5 years probation, and completion of a one year out-patient program. I was told I would have to report to probation 2x a month for six months and then monthly for the next six months, then every three months there after. I am still reporting to my probation officer 2x a month. Then I violated probation on 9/08 for being discharged from my out-patient group after completing 7 months. The violation is still on going in court, and legal aide is not helping me at all. I am on the verge of having a nervous breakdown. I am now being treated for depression, and have a court date for 6/11/09. I need to know my rights and if I can change lawyers. Any advice would be helpful.
