I was driving a friend home in his car because he was not able to drive (he had been drinking). His speedometer did not work and I was unaware of how fast I was going however I knew I was not going too fast. I was pulled over going 46 in a 30. The passeneger caused a ruckus and next thing you know I was asked to do a field sobriety test, breathalized and arrested. nothing happend to the passenger.
It is my first offense and I do not want it on my record, what can I do. How can I find it?
I am currently unemployed how would i go about getting a lawyer.
thanks -- I will send more info if needed.** typo ** It is my first offense and I don't want it on my record, I am 20 (turning 21 in 2013) and this will affect me for the rest of my life. I just want to speak with someone to explain and see what kind of outcomes can come out if they know the whole story. What kind of defenses can I use, Do I need a lawyer, what kind of lawyer are there any lawyers for low income (student, not much money -- unemployed at the moment). Thanks
