Perfect Plea corrections
I'm sorry to report that in the new (green cover, 2008 edition) of Perfect Plea, an error got by us. On pp. 182 and 183, the range of punishment for DWI-First Offender is incorrect and should read "confinement in county jail for not more than 180 days or less than 72 hours and/or a maximum fine of $4,000."

Also note that the form on p. 188 has become outdated with the Court of Criminal Appeals' recent amendment to T.R.App.P. 25.2. See the court's website at for the latest version of the Rule 25.2 form.

We apologize for the error.

$4000.00 or $2000.00 fine?

$2,000. Class B misdemeanor with mandatory minimum on confinement. Thanks for the sharp eyes.
