I’m somewhat confused about what my lawyer told me. My lawyer said that the DA is new and currently wants to charge my case as a felony DWI—since this is second offense (was parked at a gas pump this time and cop never witness my driving). The DA said he will hold of indicting my case until after administrative hearing for refusal is conducted and the arraignment transcript is received (missed dmv hearing but is now rescheduled). My lawyer requested transcript from arraignment where I had told the judge that I requested a blood test. Does this mean the DA is not willing to reduce/plea bargain my case or that the DA will indict my case as a felony unless something positive arises from the administrative hearing? Is there any possibility of a good outcome from any of this?I am hoping and praying for at least a reduction of the felony if that is even possible. Really hoping for no dwi.
