I need some OT legal advice.


I received a first offense OWI & reckless driving charge early Friday morning. What is the OT's opinion on what I should do? Lawyer up or just plead guilty. Also how much is this shite going to cost me.

re: I need some OT legal advice.


assuming OWI = DUI then yes it is going to cost you a shite ton and you should absolutely get a lawyer.

Did you blow? If so, what did you blow? Did you hit anyone/anything?

You need to be doing research on getting the best lawyer you can afford.

Are you in Louisiana?

Do you have a clean record otherwise?

And it's going to cost you a lot regardless of what route you take.

Jesus. I would have tacked on more charges honestly. That's ridiculous.

You didn't blow a 1.85 or you would be dead right now.

You blew a .185 which is well over twice the legal limit and you have a wreck on top of it.

You need to lawyer up or they are going to bend you over in court. Well the probably will either way but he will make your life a lot easier.

Prepare for license suspension, tons of fines, higher insurance rates, mandatory classes, breathalyzer installed in your vehicle, and forking over several grand to your lawyer.

If you blew a 1.85 without dying then you'll be famous.

Write a book about your superhuman tolerance and that should help cover lawyers fees

From what I understand I won't have to get a breathalyzer for 1st offense in LA. Clean record other then this.

Also just realized decimal point was in the wrong spot.

I disagree. He needs to speak to a lawyer who specializes in DUIs before he makes any decision. If he goes in and pleads guilty then he has no plea bargaining and they will very likely make an example of him. Twice over the legal limit + wreckless driving will be a lot more than just a fine and an increase on insurance.
