Without looking at the police reports in your case, it is impossible to say whether Neg 1 is the best offer you can get on your case. It is important to analyze all of the strengths and weaknesses of your case to determine what would be a good result for you. Generally, a Neg 1 is a pretty good deal when you are charged with DUI, but it still counts as a prior if you get another DUI (you would then be looking at 2nd offense penalties) and it sounds like you would still be required to do probation. You should discuss these issues with your attorney to decide what is the best result for you.
Neg 1 is a pretty good disposition, in most situations. Remember, it is looked at as a prior if you pick up another DUI. You can roll the dice and hope the jury finds you NG. Talk to your attorney.
Every case and situation is different and vary greatly depending on specific facts. My posts are not to be considered complete answers to each question. My posts do not constitute an attorney/client relationship.
It is unclear if your test results are for alcohol or for a drug like marijuana. If the test results were for alcohol, then usually a Neg 1 offer is a good result. Again, it depends on the facts of your case. If the test results were for nanograms of THC, then you may want to look into getting a better offer. Consult your attorney. It sounds like your situation is manageable and keep up the treatment.
