    Answered . They did not take action against your license because you blew under the legal limit. Even though you are below the legal limit the state can still try to prosecute you, ad they may since you already have one pending. However, you need to fight both charges because those both could be winnable cases.

    Answered . The second one still counts as a dui if you get convicted or plead guilty.
    With a .075 you should have a good shot at fighting that one. You may also
    have some good arguments on the .095 case. Don't give up on either case
    without talking to a good dui lawyer.

    Answered . You can expect that the .095 case will file a motion for similar transaction and use the later case against you and vice versa. Without knowing more of the facts on the .075 there is no way to predict what you should expect because although you are under the limit the state can still proceed on a DUI Less safe and toss the number or you could have terrible driving and look bad on video. In any event you need a lawyer.
