I picked up a DUI in Oct 2011 and a DUI 2nd Dec 2011 in the James City County. I have since then completed my jail and began my ASAP counseling. On Nov 2012, I picked up an "Evading and Eluding" while on Colonial Parkway. I went to court in York Country Feb. 2013 for the charge and picked up a plea deal to drop the Drunk in Public and stick with the Evading and Eluding pending 2 years good behavior and enrolling into a PO program. Since then I have completed my 16 week behavioral course as well as my 4 week ASAP and have been compliant with my Probation Officer on all alcohol/drug screenings.
I understand the Evading and Eluding from York brought up the violation of my DUI 1 and DUI 2, they are bringing back 85 days for the first and 9 months for the second. I have received a Show Case.The Evading and Eluding was on foot, no vehicle was involved. I had no reason to run other than me just freaking out/being scared. I was under the assumption that because this was in a different county, that this would not have affected my James City County good behavior. I am finally getting my life back after taking two hard hit from the DUI's. It's already hard to maintain a job without a vehicle and it has severely jeopardized my military career which I am just now beginning to mend. I thought this was all behind me and I could see the light, I can't take another hit with all this jail time.
