Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
At this point your best bet is to go and see an attorney who does criminal law. At some point you may want to consider a civil rights lawsuit but the first thing to find out is if you have been charged with multiple felonies because, if so, there will be warrants issued for you.
I'm sure you have additional questions. Since the website is showing you are offline I will exit and assist others. When you pick back up if you want to discuss this real time please enter a reply and stay in chat and I will be back with you as soon as I finish with whoever I am helping.
I would like to chat.
I have no idea what to do. I know they charged me with a felony. From what I understood, they charged me with five crimes. I am 52 and have never been in trouble. I just don't get this.
Nothing in your facts indicate there is a felony involved. Do you have any idea on what they charged you with?
Also, where did you hear you had been charged?
T.hey put me in jail. From what I understand they charged me with driving under the influence
DWI/DUI is a misdemeanor
The officer told me I was charged with a felony. What about the fact that I hit the car. I think they also charged me with reckless driving. Are any of those feloneys? I was not under the influence.
Neither of those is a felony.
You can get a felony is someone is severely injured when you were DWI but that doesn't fit your facts.
Any idea what they meant by "she's one of ours"?
How do I find out what I am charged with. I am considering a civil suit.
You would need to hire a criminal lawyer at this point.
They can find out what you have been charged with and why.
