« SEC Hires New Chief Counsel for Compliance Office | Main | D.C. Circuit Divides Over FBI Agent's Retaliation Suit »

July 10, 2012



You won't need a lawyer if it is your first ofenfse and you will most likely get probation, fines, and community service. A lawyer could talk to the prosecutor to try and get it reduced to a lesser charge. If you cannot afford a lawyer then I completely understand alot of people dont like spending money on them. But, without a lawyer you will plead guilty, no contest, whichever you choose same thing pretty much and you will recieve your sentence and I know this sounds bad but we all make mistakes as long as he learned his lesson.When you go to the court, just try to be short and definite in all of your answers. Judge doesn't have time for listening 100+ DUI violators everyday. You will have about 2-3 minutes to talk to him and the rest will be already prepared in the document. There are not much that you can change on the spot. All the probation officer order, fines and classes will be already prepared for you.Good luck to you
