    The first step is to secure a DMV hearing to stay your license suspension and to try to save it from being suspended in the future. This must be done within 10 days of your arrest. In court you will have an arraignment where your attorney will be given your police report and time to analyze your defenses. Offers vary, but the usual worst case scenario is minimal jail time (often this is eliminated by credits for time already in custody), fees, alcohol classes, and other programs such as MAAD...

    Getting a wet reckless depends on a lot of factors, one of which is the court you are in. A dry reckless is a possibility when you have a lot of mitigating factors, including the officer making crucial mistakes. I wouldn't count on a dismissal. I can't really give you any more assurance until I see the police report and ultimately talk to the DA. As such, get an attorney immediately and make sure not to miss the DMV deadline for requesting a hearing.

    There are no guarantees in court. Your facts as you explained them, though, do form the basis of at least an argument in your defense. Your blood sample needs to be sent to an independent lab by an attorney to see if there are different results. The .08 is over the legal limit, but not high enough to trigger enhancements. You need to have a consultation with an attorney to analyze further facts that are important to your defense.

    Obviously there are issues with a charge of DUI based on these facts. You need to talk to a criminal defense attorney immediately so that he can follow up with the DA's filing deputy, before the first court date.

    You should speak to an attorney in private immediately and refrain from posting more information online. Your matter is very fact dependent, so you should sit down with an attorney and review the police report, along with information that you have,

    If you were convicted in court, you need to disclose it. Licensing boards take the willful non-disclosure of convictions very seriously, even when it's regarding a minor offense. There are ways, however, to show mitigating factors, such as rehabilitation, that are helpful.

    Like the other attorneys said, it depends on the judge. I would also add that you should hire an attorney immediately to make your argument to the judge.

    Sounds like its a misdemeanor petty theft - not an infraction. And yes you can get it expunged. Call an attorney to review the old case.

    Yes but you have to sign a waiver and the judge must approve. Usually it's routine in practice.
