What the state told me was I need to provide proof of attendance to an abstinence based support group for 3 months and written statements from 5 people I see regularly stating that I do not drink. And an alcohol assessment. I got the ticket for DUI when I had a MN license, but moved to Wisc. (where I was issued the citation) Before the court date and subsequent conviction. I met all of The Wisc. state requirements and paid all fines and reinstatement fees in both states.
My question then is: Do I take this information to the district attorney myself and talk to he or she in person, or hire an attorney to represent me? This mess can have grave consequences to my career.
