I was pulled over for not using a turn signal. I blew a .1 at the police station and have maybe 2 speeding tickets over the past 5 years. No other instances. I'm not a drinker but feel horrible and a mistake was made. I'm glad they stopped me before I out myself or others in danger. Now truly scared and not knowing what to do. Court appearance is on Friday morning. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.
Likely a 3-day Driver Intervention Program, fine around $450 and 1-yr administrative BMV license suspension. Should be able to get work and necessities driving privileges. Get a lawyer to look at the evidence supporting possible defenses and perhaps reduction of charges.
You blew low enough to get a better deal than an OVI conviction. I don't live in your area but you need to find a lawyer to get you through this because he can probably with that number avoid the actual OVI conviction. That's really important for down the road
