I blew a .169. This is my first of any kind of legal trouble. I don't know if I have a good case or not. I don't have a lawyer yet because I am trying to pool all of my financial resources together in order to hire one and I don't have what I have been quoted as of yet. My hearing is in one week and the DMV hearing is in 10 days. I didn't drink anywhere close to what the breathlyzer is reading. I do have a diagnosis of ADHD, Anxiety and depression for which I take medication but was not taking the night I was pulled over, but take as needed (except the depression meds) because you are not supposed to drink on those meds. I also wear a partial removable dental appliance that is similar to a retainer. I don't know if I have good grounds to fight this or not. I am terrified.
