I was arrested with my first DUI this week. I would like to plead guilty because my breath test said I was .11 and thus I believe I am guilty and deserve any punishment that would be brought upon me due to this, however I am told it is foolish to plead guilty.
I am wondering if I plan to please not guilty if I should start to attend AA and DUI classes now versus waiting for being ordered to do so.
I am not sure how I would fit in at AA because I rarely drink (probably 4-5 times per year) but when I do I often have 2-5 drinks, so this is clearly a drinking problem and I am able to admit I have a problem. I've decided to stop drinking entirely and am wondering if attendance at AA would help show the judge this is the case.
