I ran through a stop sign last night and was pulled over. The officer had me get out and I passed the field tests but I blew a .118. I was completely honest with him when he asked questions but I am worried I will get my license suspended and won't be able to enlist.
You may be eligible for a first time offenders program that would allow you to escape jail and limit your license suspension. If program is completed, your record can be expunged. You will have to wait until your blood is tested. Then when you are served with papers or before contact an attorney to discuss any defenses and or the first time offenders program.
You may be ok with legal help on your case
Specific legal advice can only be given with full knowledge of all of the facts and circumstances of your situation.

I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
Your best option is to hire an attorney when you receive the charges. An attorney will be able to discuss options after hearing the particulars of your case. Many attorneys on Avvo.com offer a free consultation.
