This is my 2nd DWI in NY in 5 years and I am looking at a Class E felony. I already have had my license revoked and I am facing jail time. I blew a .28 which is aggravated, there is a witness testimony and video evidence and self admission. I know I am screwed and I know I have to face whatever charges I am brought to. I have had a great job for over 7 years. I've been attending college and I have been blessed to have been able to keep my job even though all of this is going on and my license is revoked. I have never had a felony in the past and I am in fear I will spend years in prison. I know if I go to trial I will lose given all the facts mentioned above. I am looking for an honest opinion and advice. I'd like a lawyer that actually cares for my future and not just my money.

I got into an accident on the taconic pwky. I dosed off for a second and ran into the rail. Nobody else was hurt. Police came and gave that test 2x in the car. Then 2 more times at the station along with reciting the alphabet. I was charged with dwi. I was coherent even though I was exhausted and hungry.
What was the result each time? The police usually use different machines on the side of the road than in precinct.
