What is the likely outcome of first DUI court?
I have no prior criminal background but was arrested for my first DUI. I had pulled over at a dead end when the police arrived (a concerned neighbor had apparently called them) and was cooperative, not driving, did not hurt anyone, but my BAC was .3. I spent two day in jail (the mandatory minimum) and have court next Monday (June 22) and am scared of what will happen. Do they usually go for maximum penalties on a first DUI? Since I got out of jail I have not committed any crimes not have had any alcohol. I have been working at my job and attending 1-2 AA meetings daily. Any insight as to what I can do to further prepare myself for court or what might happen would be appreciated.
It sounds as though you are taking the right steps to address your issue. On the positive side, you have no record,...

What is your question. I don't see what you need here.
First dui. I have a clean record, what are my first steps.
I got pulled over Friday night after taking friends home. I had forgotten to turn my headlights in, and when I did unfortunately I got pulled over. I had all my paperwork and passed all of the sobriety tests, but because I smelled a bit like alcohol, I was a ked to take a breathalyzer test and I refused Kindly. At that point I was arrested. I went in to sign some paperwork and that's when I agreed to take the test. I failed at a .12 but was immediately released. It's my first dui and have a clean driving record. I need this cleared asap. What steps should I take to get through this as fast as possible?
Hire a DUI lawyer immediately. Call around, consultations are free. You may have some options given the facts...

I have a clean driving record bUT got pulled over for not having my headlights on. I smelled a bit of alcohol and had to take all the sobriety field tests. I apparently passed them all but because I smelled like alcohol got asked to take a breath test and rejected it. After I got taken in, arrested for dui, I blew a .129. I got released immediately. But since I've had a positive and clean record, is there a possibility of having the dui charged dropped down to a lower sentence? If not would it be possible to get it taken off my record offer cooperation and a lawyer?

Is there anyway I could keep my license if I receive an MIP?
A couple of weeks ago I was in a vehicle with a couple of other intoxicated minors, although our driver was sober. We were pulled over, and at that point I became aware that the driver didn't have a license, resulting in the cop to further investigate why one of us with a license wasn't driving. He then continued to accuse us of drinking. I refused a breathalyzer, and denied drinking. He then said my eyes were dilated and that I smelled like alcohol. I was then told I would be receiving an MIP in the mail. Upon receiving it in the mail, it said that I've been offered to enter into a diversion program, since this is my first offense. I was wondering if I have any chance of keeping my license (I am 16)?
Yes. Frankly, you may be able to win your case. You'll need to review the specifics of the division program. The...
Will I get a DUI if I blew a .09 ?
I was pulled over the other night and was given the sobriety test which I seemed to pass. Except they said my eye kinda twitched on the pen test. Before I was pulled over I had a beer about 3 hours before driving which was bad judgment I thought it was fine to drive. I was arrested but this is the 1st time I've been arrested. Because I wasn't indangering anyone would they drop the charges to a less offense.
If this is a first time offense, for any illegal activity, you will have a chance. You may want to consult with a...
