Whats the likelyhood of a reduced charge after a dui arrest, and avoiding license suspension?
Iam a commercial driver so the loss of my license for any period of time essentially kills the career ive had all my life. I recieved 2 dui's nearly 20 years ago and subsequently quit drinking. This last year has been full of personal termoil, recently my sponsor from aa moved and i tried & tried but eventually relapsed. I stayed at home but last night after not drinking for nearly an hour i decided too go pick up a pizza. I was stoped, and arrested for dui. I was booked, and released on my o.r. i have proof of my aa attendance, and have not been in trouble at all . Is it possible that i can avoid dui charge and license suspension?

Pending DUI
So I have a pending DUI. If convicted it will be my third. I have DUI from 2008, 2013 which I am still currently on community supervision for and a violation from last year for a wreckless endangerment. I just got 60 days home detention for the violation of the reckless driving. I just did 45 days home detention for the violation of the 2013 DUI. Now I'm dealing with the current DUI. this case is different. They got a warrant to draw my blood but the lady who drew my blood wasn't licensed so out goes the blood test.
