A: Hopefully you are asking your attorney these questions - that's why you hired them. Most attorneys in this local area have free consultations where you can sit and chat with them if you haven't actually hired someone yet. More than likely depending on the city: Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake - expect jail time at those speeds. As to the DUI, don't give up just yet, have your attorney look over the facts of the case and make sure you don't have any defenses before you give in. Even if you are guilty they should be able to work out a favorable plea. Plenty of people in this area are in the military and have legal troubles - some firms can even help you with military troubles stemming from your legal problems.
