Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I'd like to ask a Florida attorney regarding a DUI charge.. Hi something happened to me in June, I made a big mistake and was drinking and driving. I crashed my car in the concrete railing on a tow bringe. The cops arrived on the scene and arrested me and charged me with DUI and Property Damage. I blew .29, which is extremely high. The DMV case got dismissed. In two weeks we're going to the court in front of the prosecutor and the judge. I have never been in trouble before. What could happen ultimately? Am I facing jail time? This has been the scariest, most horrible ordeal. Needless to say I don't drink anymore. Please help me understand what the likely outcomes are to this. Thank you!
Thank you very much. Just to clarify - a plea deal would result in probation and suspension etc. instead of jail time? have you seen cases where no jail time is given?
Thank you and last two questions. Sorry to take so much of your time. What exactly does a plea deal mean? And how long are the jail sentences usually for something like that? Thank you
Thank you very much. I greatly appreciate your feedback!
