1st offense dwi, pulled over in school crossings, opening container, on a suspended license
1st offense dwi, pulled over in school crossings, opening container, on a suspended license. Officer made me get out of the car do a FST on a bad surface, in 30 degree weather. Told me he feels like I'm too drunk to drive. I get to the police station, blow a .10. Do I have to go to jail? I'm 23 and I feel like my life is ruined now

How do i handle a DUI in new jersey while living in florida?
i have a warrant for the dui for missing my court date and the matter is about 18 months old at this point. I am nervous because it was the secound time i was charged with dui before the age of 21, but my first was down-graded to reckless driving. My issue is i need to be able to take care of it on a trip home and be able to settle the matter and not have to deal with jail time, and the community service, and classes.

Is there anyway to avoid jail time for a suspended license on a second DUI?
I was pulled over with a suspended license for my second DUI. While driving, I was sober and not speeding or performing any other traffic violations. Is there anyway to request excessive fines or community service in lieu of jail time? I've also never committed any crime other than the DUI. Begging for any suggestions or guidance. Thank you
