DUI caught under the influence of alcohol
I was pulled over in a roadblock. They took a breath test and I was over there limit . I was arrested and taken to the police station and gave blood. I was held over night. My court date is in June. This is my first offence. I have no idea what is going to be happen to me or what I should do. Any advice and assurance would be appreciated.
Good Afternoon Ashley D, In June they will have the blood test back and will be able to charge you for Driving Under the Influence or over the limit. You are entitled to have a legal representative to assist you if you can afford one or a legal aid lawyer/Judicare if not. They will then put the charge and you will have to plea and once convicted depending on your plea you will be sentenced which discretion lies with the magistrate and depending on your traffic violations influence your current driving status. Being a first offender I suggest you employ a lawyer who will assist you.
