I got pulled over for dui, possessions of weed and pipe. I have two other charges that will hopefully get dropped because I have proof that the gun was not mine nor did I know of it. Let’s just focus on the dui and drug charges mainly. This is my first time ever even setting foot in court I’ve never been in trouble ever. Please help. I’m suspended on my job because of it. I do home health. I can’t go back til it’s expunged. I can’t hardly find a job because of the pending charges.
You need to hire an attorney immediately. Present this proof regarding the weapon to him or her and let them do their job. Whenever an attorney takes on a case the assurances they should make to every client is that they will, number one, fight to preserve your liberty and freedom, meaning no prison or jail time. Secondly, they will work to keep your record clean, meaning no conviction, some type of a deferred probation. They will, of course, scrutinize the discovery material to make sure no constitutional rights were violated and that there is sufficient evidence to be concerned about a convection. We can’t always provide these two goals for all of our clients because many of them have prior runs with the law. However, based on the circumstances you have presented, I think both of these goals should be easily attained. Again, hire an attorney immediately.
Convicted felons are able to find jobs. Keep looking and you’ll find one. When you get that one get another. You’ll need the money to pay your attorney and the court.
