Am I able to appeal this or have my driving record adjusted to what actually happened or am I stuck with an untrue record?
On March 31st 2015 I was arrested for a DUI. I was not stopped by police but by a man and his girlfriend who claimed I hit their car. Police arrived on the scene and did a field sobriety test and estimated the damage at $100.00 (it was a small scratch in red, my car was blue). I am an alcoholic and was weening myself off to not have to miss time from work, hours before I'd had a drink and was on some medication for withdraw. I had no money for a lawyer when I went to court so I took the plea thinking it wasn't so bad. Now my driving record has DUI with property damage/Hit and Run! My car was repo'd and I still have to pay$500/mo for insurance. Is there anything I can do now? Also the man attacked me to get me to stop and I had bruises all over my arms and neck. Not having a lawyer will have cost me about $20,000. in punishment. Is it too late to do anything now?
Yes. As to your DUI it is too late. In that regard you made your bed. Sorry. That said you are free to sue for...

Most first time DUIs do not result in jail time. Given a choice with a high BAL, I would suggest going with a private...
