I agree with the sentiment of this post, and few is no hero……


……but I am a practicing attorney and for first time duis, most people actually do not plead guilty. They usually get a diversionary sentence or ADR with counseling and community service and probation and whatever other conditions to avoid the guilty plea, and while they don’t always plead “not guilty” they can plead Nolo contendere or “not guilty but agreeing to a statement of facts” before they get their “probation before judgment” or whatever the state calls the diversionary sentence that only is served if there is a repeat offense.

Makes me think this might not have been few’s first dui but who knows, maybe they knew taking a diversionary sentence with a Technical not guilty plea would be bad pr and they thought it would just be better to stand up and plead guilty.
