He just got arrested today
Call the jail and find out what his bond is. Then call a bondsman who will charge you 10-15 % of that amount to get him out. Or hire a lawyer to try and get his bond reduced.See question
I was pulled over for not maintaining lane control. I had my ID already out the window for the Officer. He asked if I had been drinking to which I said a few beer. He shoved a breathalyzer in my face, I refused. He opened my car door, threatened t...
The District Attorney in New Hanover County does not negotiate on DWI cases. This sounds like a case that has issues that will need to be tried in front of a judge.
The total costs will depend upon whether you are convicted and what your insurance company does and what treatment recommendation is made, but the court costs, assessment and fines should be slightly less than $1000 total.
The offense was classified as a Class A misdemeanor for shoplifting/concealment of goods.
A PJC is indefinite. It does not expire and does not come off your record.See question
I have a prayer for judgement, not for speeding, that is from 8 months ago.
Your best chance for a reduction is to speak with a traffic attorney in the area where you received the ticket. Counties vary widely as to how they deal with speeding that fast by a teenager.See question

I have a Florida license and zero points. I cannot afford the fine and am considering the prayer for judgement.
A prayer for judgment is not a given at that speed. It is up to the judge to see whether to grant a PJC.

I know money is tight, but you need to hire an attorney to help you get the best result possible.See question
Whether either a PJC or a non-moving violation will be available to you is up to the judge and/or district attorney. Passing on a double yellow line is a charge for which you should definitely hire a local attorney to negotiate the best resolution possible for you.See question
I am wondering how to approach this and what the penalties are likely to be. He has had no previous violations.
