Can I get a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor?

I got arrested for drunk driving and I blew a .18 on the BAC test. I read that if you're more than double the legal limit you're charged with felony drunk driving and that you'll be sentenced to a year in jail at least and maybe more. How can I get this charge reduced to a misdemeanor or better yet dropped?

    Drunk driving is not a felony in Maryland. However second time offenders might face two years in prison instead of one. People who offend three or more times might face up to three years in prison. It's up to the prosecution whether to reduce charges, perhaps as part of a plea bargain. You should seek a confidential consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Online posts are not confidential. If the prosecution were to somehow find your post, then they might try to use it against you as evidence.

    What you read is wrong. You need to hire a DUI specialist before you get fooled with more misinformation. And you better do it soon because you have only 10 days to save your license.
