    First thing you should do is talk with a qualified DUI attorney in this County. To answer your question, NO it is not a guaruntee that you will do jail time. In fact since this is your first DUI there is a good chance you can avoid jail time if you have no criminal record. An attorney will be able to go over all your options with you as well as any and all defenses you may have.

    You should have your boyfriend contact and talk with a DUI attorney immediately. He may have some defenses that an attorney can go over with him as well as discuss all options going forward. During a blood test to answer your question it is not uncommon for someone to be tested for drugs as well as alcohol. Please have him contact an attorney to discuss.
