I would be surprised if this taken to the serious degree legally that you are saying.
Also there is a decent chance while watching the video did he get miranda rights, the audio was weak? Was he able to understand them, was any conversation he had admissible? The fact he pleaded not guilty makes me question some of that. I am not a legal expert but there are bunch of questions here and chances are he is going to have a very good lawyer. He will be punished, but I doubt deported and I doubt he sees the maximum penalties in terms of jail time with this offense. I hope he learns his lesson that is most important. But the lack of charges on Smith suggest they are having trouble with that angle at least in terms of Smith that is probably a good sign legally.
As with all charges, you ALWAYS plead not guilty and accept a lesser charge. In this case he will probably try and fight for OWVI (operating while visually impaired).
We've all had our fun, I just hope this is his wake up and he acts more like an adult from here on out.
