Arrested during a road block in May 2010. Was 32 at the time, blew just over the limit. Officer told me that he would suggest that my license not be suspended as he felt I was fine until the breath test and was cooperative. I went to the hearing and recieved an extension to find a lawyer. A few months later i went to my next court date and told the judge I couldn't afford a lawyer. I Spoke with a public defender, but did not qualify. He was kind enough to briefly council me at that time after hearing my situation and he suggested that I ask to push my case to State. I did. That was over 15 mos ago & haven't heard from the courts as I was informed I would. Arrested over 20 mos ago. Is there a chance this will be dropped after this amount of time? 1st offense. Clean driving & criminal rec.
