I got a dui on Friday night, and I was wondering what I have

I got a dui on Friday night, and I was wondering what I have to do now to try and lower it to reckless driving or if its even possible, I blew a .125. I just want to know if its possible I have been going through a lot I just gave birth two weeks ago and placed my daughter up for adoption I started taking depression pills and seeing a counselor because I need a lot of help I felt like my world is falling apart. The reason why I got a dui was because I was talking to the father of my baby and things got out of hand I accidently hit him and he started bleeding so I got off the car because I couldn't take it I was so overwhelmed and I didn't want to make things worse so his brother called the cops and then I was drinking when I was with him because we went to go eat at a restaurant/bar. when I got off the car I walked home it gave me time to calm down and think so I wanted to go and apologize and without thinking I drove to his house but the police officers where there and they saw me so they went and pulled me over. Do I have a chance at reducing it to reckless driving ?

In North Carolina. My uncle was brought in for assult. The

Hi. In North Carolina. My uncle was brought in for questioning for sexual assult. The minor, 16 year old boy, brought it to investigators saying this happened about a year ago. The boy is a known drug user. He confessed after hours feeling pressured/coherced into confessing so thinking he would protect nephew from having to testify. However he is not guilty.The detective stated that uncle was free to go at any time, however berated him with questions and he did not feel he was free to go. The detective told him that he was going to charge him next week on Friday and would arrest him. His rights were not read. The local attorney wants $50k which would include a Private Investigator. However, no one can afford this.I recommended he go ahead and pull his phone records (he talks on the phone a lot), and look into a pro bono attorney, and hire his own PI and make sure his security cameras are set to record anything. The minor has been seen around town walking with other kids his age.The minor states that nephew was a witness however the nephew's, Also 16, mother may not allow him to testify. The mother holds custody. The nephew and the minor have grown apart as they do not have the same interests they did before high school.The detective also would not give a date/time of the incident only says about a year ago.A psych evaluation needs to be done in the minor.What recourse does my uncle have in fighting this?

Story short, I have been cited with a barking dog complaint

Long story short, I have been cited with a barking dog complaint by the Police. I do not know who filed the complaint. I was told that a police car parked in my driveway, while I was not home and held a device out the window pointing at my dogs, who were in a fully enclosed yard,. The person did not know if it was a recorder or a walkie talkie, but he remained on my property for approx 10 min. This caused stress to my dogs and they barked at him the whole time. 1. he was on my private property, Is this permissable? 2. Was he guilty of entrapment by making my dogs bark, when they were in this instance being protective of their property? On Wednesday the Chief of Police came to my door and informed me that I was being sited for dogs being "unreasonable unloud" & "disturbing the peace and quiet of the neighborhood". I was told I had to come to the station to pick up my citation. I advised him I was unable to come to him for an hour as I had a handyman doing some work. He said "never mind he would bring it to me his self". Then proceeded to question if my vehicle was registered and if it was in my name only. When I said it was he said he would get all my info from the plates and he left. Later in the day he returned with the ticket and has me sign. I have to appear this morning at 9am to plead. Question is: Was I properly cited? According to just answer, the complainant should have come to me first and the dog warden should have been notified. Police are to be involved in case of immediate danger. To answer your probable question: Yes I do have 6 small dogs, yes, they do bark, (but that is what dogs do), They are all licensed, fully vetted and microchipped. they range from 9 pounds to 20 pounds and 18 months to 16 years old. They are also not the only dogs in the neighborhood who do what dogs do...bark

My girlfriend was arrested at walmart trying to walk out

My girlfriend was arrested at walmart for allegedly trying to walk out with 250 dollars of groceries. She tells me that she was only looking for potting soil that is located just outside of the gardening area. She is 19 years old with my daughter and has no prior history of ever stealing. We have no money problems and she had my debit card with her so there was no reason for her to not be able to pay for the groceries just like we do every week. She was arrested at 1 pm and i was not able to bail her out until 3am the next day. It has caused us great emotional stress. What do i do?
