How do I handle a first time dui in court
I was driving home from busch gardens and stopped by a bar to play pool and had some drinks. I was driving home it was dark and wet with no one on the road. I swerved to left and hit some wet grass with my brakes and slid up and hit a wall. some kids saw my car and called police and left. highway patrol drove up and made me do a foot to foot on white line and did some kind of follow the red light with my eyes test. It started pouring raining so they arrested me and took me to jail where they did a breathylizer test. blew a .197 at first then a .203 on the second time

DUI VOP question
My father had court today for VOP for a DUI. The state offered 20days in jail. My father cannot do 20 days in jail at this time, due to financial problems and needing to relocate out of state.

I apologize if this is confusing for anyone to understand. Thank you in advance
