My first DUI was in 2007 (five years ago). I completed all the required courses and paid all fines, but never went to DMV to get license reinstated. I just received my second DUI this past weekend, with a breathalyzer of .08/.09 and never reinstated my license. I want to avoid jail time and lose my job. I am willing to do whatever it takes (community service, SWAP, IID, AAA etc. ) Is it possible to avoid jail time? I am about to get married in a month and am paying child support, so I can't lose my job.
