I have first court date (not intake) very soon. I have not seen all of the evidence against me yet nor have I been advised of the potential penalties. Will I have to enter a final plea at the upcoming court date. Its is labeled as "Hearing". Nothing else. Very confusing.

Should I have independent lab re test Blood for BAC?
Breathalyzer = 0.187. Blood test = 0.26. That seems like big statistical difference. How much does it cost to have State send blood samples to independent lab for testing?
You should address these concerns with your attorney.
