Asking again, just to get a 2nd opnion.......first one was not bad. i made a big mistake....Live in Delta Colorado....got pulled over for speeding, 91 in a 65....and DUI....bac 2.5 times legal limit, and was opening careering a unloaded firearm, which is legal here, but not while under the influence, though they noted it was unloaded. I got charged with a Misdemeanor
and the DA was willing to drop all charges but the DUI, i served 3 days so far, and have to go do another 6. The judge gave me a week to decide to take the deal, or get a public defender/lawyer. I believe all 3 of these charges are Misdemeanor regardless. I was set free on a PR bond of 1k, but did not agree to the DA's request right away, and took the option to think about it. They did not seem overly interested is screwing me (the DA) I go into my first hiring in a week or so. I asked the judge if this would prevent me from owning a gun
, she said no since it was not a felony. Yet the DA or Highway patrol kept it....and said i may not get it back.....which makes no sense if after i serve m y sentence
, etc i am aloud to own another weapon.... On my bond sheet it did say i'm not allowed to use or have a firearm.....i'm guessing this is b/c i did not agree to anything yet and theres been no sentence, even the 10 days is theory i guess until proven guilty or i take the plea. Would you say, take the plea, get a lawyer? And after i serve my time and i guess community service, should i get the weapon back since i'd not be a felon and it was simply unloaded and holstered..... I'm just not sure what to do.
Also, in Colorado what are my options if any to get my DL back with in one year, or get this even further reduced?
I also choose the blow test instead of blood, thinking it may be more dysfunctional...I've heard both sides on this.
