    Hire a qualified DUI attorney in this area. As the other attorneys stated if the THC Wawa found in your blood that is a DUI it doesn't matter when you smoked it. You may have other options and possible defenses that an attorney can go over with you and your parents.

  • My 18 yo son received a DUI and blew a 0.034 with a blood level of 0.03. Will he go to jail?

    We received court papers for the preliminary arraignment today. First page states Charges and there are only 3, but the 2nd page states All Charges. My son went to a friend's house the day she got her vehicle. He did have a drink at her house. ...

    Zachary’s Answer

    First thing you should do is contact a qualified DUI attorney in the area where this occurred. It is not a guarantee that your son will go to jail from the facts that you describe. In fact there are programs that an attorney will go over with him that not only will keep him out of jail but keep his record clean. This program is called A.R.D and is for first time offenders with no criminal record. You will also want to go over all possible defenses with an attorney and make sure you understand all your options.
