Before you decide to plead guilty to any of these charges, you should speak to an attorney. You have some serious charges which carry possible jail time if convicted. An attorney will be able to evaluate your facts and give you advice on how to proceed, and based upon the circumstances, tell you what is likely to occur.
Responding to questions on AVVO does not establish an attorney-client relationship between the questioner and any attorney associated with Garrett Law Group, PLC. Responses should be considered and used for informational purposes only. Every case is unique in its facts, and all legal matters should be discussed with a licensed attorney prior to making any decisions or taking any actions.
It sounds like you also posted the question about Miranda. Walking into court and pleading guilty would be the dumbest decision you could make. You don't have to hire an attorney if you can't afford one, but you should at minimum apply for the public defender at your first court appearance.
The consequences of the charges you face carry jail time and life long consequences. While many people think "taking responsibility" will help you, in reality all pleading guilty will do is create a lifelong criminal record and both short and long term consequences.

Mr. Garrett is correct. Don't plead guilty without having your case thoroughly evaluated by an experienced DUI attorney. You will have no idea if your case is defensible or if the plea offer made by the district attorney is fair. Many attorneys on avvo.com offer free consultations. Give some a call.
