I got my first DUI with 0.12 BAC. I don't have any prior records. There was no accident or any felony. I was honest to cops and was polite.
Is there a possibility of jail?
There is a very low possibility of jail. Riverside County is pretty tough, even on first time offenders, but each court varies. I would strongly recommend you hire an attorney to defend you. If the DA or City Prosecutor handling the case senses there is a vigorous defense, he or she may be more willing to negotiate a plea bargain that does not require jail. In every single DUI, there are numerous issues that a good DUI attorney can look into to that might even result in dismissal of the case or reduction of charges, either through a motion or just through old-fashioned negotiating.
