In Oklahoma, my son is in a county jail. While in solitary

In Oklahoma, my son is in a county jail. While in solitary confinement, he attempted to heat a bottle of water with a match and then flushed it in the toilet. He will be charged with (1) Arson, but level 1, 2, 3 or 4 is not known yet. He did not willfully try to burn down the building! He is also charged with (2)Possession of Contraband (matches) by Inmate and (3) Destroying Evidence. He wants to fight the charges because he did not willfully/intentionally attempt to start a fire for any malicious reason. Do you think he has a good case to take to trial? However, if he must plead guilty, are any of these charges a 50% crime? or 85% crime?

I submitted my teaching license application (English 7-12)

I submitted my teaching license application (English 7-12) last week and wrote DUI test refusal since that is what is was listed as. It clearly stated "misdemeanor" on the court papers. I was unsure whether to call it "DUI" or "test refusal", but since the paper work listed "test refusal" I wrote that. In my explanation i wrote that an officer pulled into my driveway, asked em to come to the station, and when I arrived asked me to take a DUI test. I refused until I could get an attorney present and was charged with refusing. The paperwork shows I had a "fleeing" charge dismissed and the refusal was lowered from a GM to a misdemeanor after competing my probation. My record shows one "misdemeanor".Will this affect my getting my license renewed?At the time of court they said it would appear only as a DUI on my record but it states "misdemeanor DUI-Test refusal". This was in May 2011 and I completed two years of probation.
