Whoops. Thank you. It was her hair. I design testing methods for hair dye, and I was impressed with her highlights.
I have to pay $200 + court fines (which pushes the total to around $700 iIrc), 90-day license suspension, no jail, and the minimum amount of time in the alcohol abuse program.
In other words, stalling in court saved me $100, 30 days of a suspended license, a few weeks in an alcohol abuse program, and four days of jail.
Moral of the story:
IF YOU EVER GO TO COURT, COMPLIMENT EVERYONE AND TRY YOUR BEST TO WASTE THEIR TIME.
OK, that sounds like about what Rey Maualuga got. I think that's about as good as you're going to do with or without a lawyer but I think the reason most of this board suggested you get a lawyer is because you gave the impression that you didn't want to plead guilty to a DUI because you felt you weren't guilty. If you'd have said I'm OK with a DUI on my record as long as I only get the minimum sentence then I'd say fine, go to court, be cooperative and they'll probably go easy on you since it's a first offense.
If your insurance jacks your rates, let us know. That'll be helpful information for those of us who might find ourselves in a similar situation.
If jailtime was on the table then why didn't you qualify for a public defender?
Incidently I don't think your compliment on the Judge's hair had much to do with it. All she was looking for was for you to be cooperative and respectful, but anyway, I'm real glad it worked out in the end for you!
Can they suspend a license when you don't have one???
My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
Looks like you got the results you wanted.

"panic" only comes from having real expectations
One thing I learned from this thread is how to spell cockamamie. Never knew, honestly, until now.
Celebrating a "win" in a DUI case by getting hammered.
Let's just think about that one for a second.
"But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
I'm having trouble believing a lot of stuff in this thread. Did he seriously compliment her hair? Was that a joke? I seriously doubt that even happened
Calling BS on the entire description of the process.
This poster has claimed to beat three criminal cases, get out of a DUI because he complemented someones hair and is not bothered a bit by driving on a suspended license.

a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
