Will this be my 1st or 2nd DUI offense? 1 Answers as of July 07, 2011
About 2.5 years ago I received my first DUI. My lawyer was able to work with me and the courts to reduce it to a "crude and imprudent" driving. Just recently I had a bit too much to drink and made the decision to drive home. I feel asleep and the car went off-road into a ditch. The officer came about an hour later and gave me a Breathalyzer and hauled me off stating I was operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. At that point I was real disappointed in myself. So now I have to find another lawyer to help me out but I would like to know if the courts will see this as my 1st offense or will they know its my 2nd?

You meant "Careless and imprudent. " And, this will be your second offense for most purposes. In any event, you need to hire an attorney if you do not have one already.
