I am a disabled veteran (Medic). When I left the military I came back with PTSD and had an alcohol problem. The DWI arrest was over 1 year ago, since then I have been a full-time student and make high grades (Dean's list), active in my daughter's life, and have made efforts to prevent this from happening again (quit drinking). I no longer indulge in alcohol, have followed all court orders (maintained interlock device), been present at all scheduled hearings (constantly reset the day of court), and have found other more beneficial activities and individuals to occupy my time with. Will/should any of this be taken into consideration during the sentencing/plea bargain proposal phase?
