I was recently stopped and arrested for a DUI in the Bay Area. I refused a breathalyzer and requested a blood test instead. I'm almost positive I was under the legal limit. I had 4 mixed drinks from 10:30 PM-1:15 AM with the arrest happening at 3:00 and the blood test 20-30 mins after, and I'm over 6 feet and weigh 225 lbs. I have an arraignment coming up in a couple of weeks and want to know how I can get the test results.
I'm torn on hiring a lawyer because I'm short on funds, but if my BAC is below .08 I figure I shouldn't need one. I have 3 questions:
1)Is it possible to obtain my blood results prior to my arraignment; and if so, how?
2)If my BAC is below.08 will the charge be thrown out at the hearing?
3)Should I hire a lawyer before the arraignment regardless?
Thanks in advance!
