Asked on: 8/09/12, 8:34 am

My boyfriend went to court and got bad news.. We have a lawyer to. And the case is here in rockwall tx.. He got arrested for a d.u.i and invading arrest... His first felony. And yes he has a record but they were misdaminors and he was a teenager. Its been awhile since he got introuble. Hes 23 years old. Well the lawyer tried to get him probation. And i know the minium well that i look up online for tx is 6 months to 2 years.. But rockwall prosecuters want him to give him 5 years.. So the lawyer says u have one week to decide.. So is the lawyer even worth it? I feel like hea not trying.is it to late to get another lawyer? Or is the sentence correct? This lawyer wants to talk to see if my boyfriend should talk to the judge or go with a jury? so any advice? He has one week to decide. He already had arraignment so can i get another lawyer..? Or this is correct and this is what he deserves.? I know this is law and he broke it but is this legit? Please help?????
