Your son should not plead guilty and he should consult with counsel. Even though this is his first office, the penalties can be very severe.

The term superdrunk means someone with a suspected blood alcohol level of .15 or above. or nearly 2 times the legal limit. Anyone who would suggest that your son plead guilty to anything without knowing all of the facts surrounding his arrest should not be giving out advice. Remember, you get what you pay for. Seek the advice of a competent and experienced attorney who is aware of and know all about he drunk driving laws AND THEIR POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES.

You should never plead guilty to a crime unless you have conferred with an attorney. People, including lawyers, should never represent themselves.

Your son should NOT plead guilty to anything until consulting with a lawyer. Only a trained lawyer can look over the police report for any discrepancies or wrongdoing that could get the charges reduced or dismissed. A lawyer is much better adept at plea bargaining than a pro per defendant. An experienced DUI attorney is a good investment because they can help you save money in terms of fines, costs, driver responsibility fees, insurance premiums, and possible vehicle immobilization cost. Consult with an experienced DUI attorney before pleading to any charge.
