Pleading not guilty to a 1st offense dui in Montana to try to avoid the 24 hours min of jail time?
I was driving home one night when I lost control of my car. The car wrecked and responders showed up. I was given a field sobriety test which I am certain I did fine with. Then in accepted a breath test. Blew .151. Arrested and taken to give blood sample. Then taken to a friends where I was dropped off. This is my first offense... Ever. My record is clean. I have a full time job. My court date is set for Friday. I live in Montana. I understand that I clearly was under the influence. My only concern is jail time. If I plead guilty I am sentenced a min. Of 24 hour jail time. I don't want that at all. Especially when I have work! So what I'm asking is... Would it be a good idea to plead not guilty and try to ask for no jail time somehow. Maybe community service etc. I can't afford an attorney and have never even been in a court. What should I do and what should I expect? Thank you!

It will be sentenced as it is charged. So if charged as Agg DUI, then that sentence. They will only charge the Agg DUI...
