1. HIRE A CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER who is well versed in DWI Defense.
2. SEE 1. above
3, Keep going to AA
4. Run (Don't walk) to the campus Mental Health Service dept. and sign up IMMEDIATELY for Alcohol Therapy (one on one) or begin seeing a private Forensic Psychotherapist who specializes in addiction Psychotherapy.
5. If you think you need Rehab Look into Betty Ford Clinic or Sierra Tuscon for intense help to get you dry, clean and sober.
You have taken a good first step. (literally and figuratively) now keep going. You have a dangerous illness and showing the court you are taking steps will help it in keeping you out of jail. That is a good incentive to staying in program, however the real miracle is that once you are clean and sober and working program, the rest of your life will become manageable and you will live longer, happier, and hopefully crime free.
This answer does not, nor is it intended to, create an attorney-client relationship or constitute attorney advertising. Rather, it is offered solely for information purposes. Since the facts of each case are different, it is critical to consult with qualified counsel with whom information can be shared and assessed under an attorney-client privilege, so that competent advice can be obtained on which you can make informed decisions.
You need an attorney to deal with this DUI and violation of your probation. You must call the DMV Safety Office within 10 days of your arrest and request an APS hearing.
If you have any questions please call.
You should look into hiring an attorney immediately. A high BAC (over .15) means enhancements. You need to mititgate the circumstances and fight any part of the case you can.
