Hello - Thank you for contacting JustAnswer. My name is Michael; I look forward to helping you with your criminal problem today.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Were you charged with DUI 1st or DUI 2nd offense?
first i accidentally put in the wrong email address but have the refrence numer.can i fix this?
i havent been charged with the 2nd dui yet.my court date is september 4th
i currently have been assigned a public defender
What were you charged with is my question?
You should have received a ticket on the scene with what you were being charged with.
just a moment, its was driving while subject to a imparing substance and also without due caution and circumspection and a speed at or in manner as to endager persons
Okay. What is your question in relation to that? It sounds like DUI 1st offense.
no i recieved one in 2009 in fl, this one was in june 2012 in nc.what am i looking at as far as jail, and fines?
Let me take a look at that statute, hold please.
For a DUI 1st - 1 day jail, $200 fine, 60 days to 1 year license supsension. For DUI 2nd, 4 days jail, fines vary (possibly up to $1000), 1-4 years license suspension.
im guessing the nite i spent in jail doesnt already count right?Also i accidentally sent my anser to the wrong email address buy i have the refrence number.Do you know how i can get it sent it to the right one?
What do you mean sent you answer to the wrong email address?
when i first put down my dollar deposit it said it sent the answer to my email address and if i was pleased id pay the rest but i accidentally had it sent to an email address that doesnt exist.or is this the answer and then i rate you?If it is what was sent to that non-existent address. guess im a little confused because it said Id be getting a response from a female attorney. sorry if im im confusing you now.
Yes, I'm the attorney that is assisting you.
Once we complete this conversation, you can rate me (hopefully highly) :)
yes actually you have been quite helpful.Im on a waiting list for a rehabiltaion center for drugs/alcohol.Do you think this will help my situtation at all. Actually a bad may become available before my court date.
That won't change anything about the charge or the penalties unfortunately.
okay, well i was hoping it would at least keep me outta jail. Anyway thank you.
