A few weeks ago I was caught for DUI and blew 3 times the legal limit. I was not arrested since there was no accident and I appeared fairly sober to the officer. I plan on pleading guilty to my first DUI and just paying the fine since the lawyers I talked to said their rates will be more than the DUI itself. Is it really dangerous to plead guilty to my first DUI or do I need a DUI lawyer? Is there a chance I'll go to jail? Should I declare myself indigent for a public defender?
