I am 19 and got arrested for dui in Los Angeles, California with a blood alcohol of .12. I went thru a red light and was stopped by an officer who originally was following me because my windows were too darkly tinted. I have never had any previous issues or arrests. I was released the next morning without bail. I live on my own, am currently unemployed, looking for a job and a college student from sept to june. What will happen to me when I go to court? Do I need an attorney or will a public defender be OK? My family does not live in Los Angeles. Will this DUI be on my permanent record and how much will I have to pay if any? Are classes an alternative to having a dui on my record or paying fines or fees?
