It depends on your reading, the machine history and what is in the police report, first have it looked at by an attorney and pay no more than $1,000 or use a public defender. I HATE TO SAY THIS BUT MOST DUI CASES ARE LOSERS AND MANY ATTORNEYS OVERCHARGE TO PLEAD SOMEONE OUT
I agree with the Attorneys, however if she has told you she is going to get an Attorney, wait a few days. A default can and will be set aside if only a short time has passed and a rush might make the other attorney think you are trying to get the upper hand. It might work against you.
Interestingly there is a diversion program for which he might be put in.
If you are involved in a criminal law matter in Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside or San Bernardino, California. Consider how much your freedom is worth. Other States have different Laws. Always, consult attorneys in your state!! Use Avvo’s tab “find a Lawyer” above.
YOU HAVE ABSOLUTE RIGHTS TO COUNSEL, TO CONFRONT YOUR ACCUSERS
TO REFUSE TO TESTIFY AGAINST YOURSELF,
TO WITNESSES BEING SUBPEONED,
