A: A New Mexico attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. The question was probably overlooked under Personal Injury and Car Accident headings. A criminal defense attorney should advise on matters involving pleas, not attorneys who handle civil cases for accidents. By now you may have already taken care of this, but if not, seek guidance from criminal defense attorneys. If you reposted and included "Criminal Law" as a category, the response will likely be essentially to consult with a criminal defense attorney, so there's no point losing time waiting for such a response. Good luck
