Question Detail: Also, do I need a lawyer and is pleading guilty not going to be a good thing?
Answer: In Hawaii there may be other attorneys that tell you that since the alleged
BAC is that high you should just plead guilty. Remember that if you plead
guilty you get a conviction and give up your right to appeal. If you hire
an attorney that fights every step of the way, there are countless ways
to prevent you from getting a conviction. Do not necessarily believe that
the machine works properly, was working properly that night and that everything
else that came before it is not subject to challenge by the defense. Also
remember that the government has the burden of proving you guilty. Don’t
make it easy for them and plead out. Hire an aggressive attorney to fight for you.
