You haven't said anything that makes me believe your lawyer is doing anything that is not competent, and he is right that lawsuits move very slowly and can take two years to get to trial at best, and maybe three or four years. Malcolm.

You cannot be forced to take a breathalyzer until the officer gets a court order to either force you to take a breathalyzer or have your blood drawn. You always have the right to remain silent until you speak to a lawyer, but the police office can get a court order before your lawyer arrives. Malcolm.

I'd like to know more facts, but if you are on lifetime supervision for a sex-related offense and get a DUI, it could be a violation of your probation or parole. If your formal probation and parole have ended, then you probably will only face the same potential penalties that everyone else faces for a DUI first offense, including taking a DUI school, Victims Impact Panel, fines, community service and stay out of trouble.
