I was recently arrested for a DUI. I blew a .17 at 1:06AM. My blood was taken at 2:06AM. Could it have went down?
If my BAC was above .16, is there ANY CHANCE it could be lowered to a Tier II offense? This is my first DUI offense. I have never been in trouble with the law previously.

On a 90 day sentence, I was given 10 weekends in jail and 70 days house arrest in Delaware County Pa. Weekends are completed.

Will I be able to get underage drinking charges dismissed?
I am an 18 year old who just finished high school and made a stupid mistake earning an underage drinking citation my first time drinking. My town has a youth panel for people under 18 that dismisses charges after completion of a judge-determined program. Will I be eligible for such a program despite my age? I have already contacted a lawyer to represent me at the hearing. My past behavior has been exemplary also as I am the valedictorian of my class and Ivy League-bound. What are my chances for dismissal? Any advice? If charges are dismissed or later expunged, what repercussions will this have in job/grad school applications?
If you already have a lawyer then you should really be asking these questions of your lawyer.
