What should I plead or say to the judge?
First time OVI, done the field sobriety test but when asked to balance on one leg because of bad knees I could not comply, after telling the officer this, he put me in the back of cop car, no further testing was admistrated, so I did NOT blow, and was never asked to. I was not arrested the cop allowed me and my girlfriend to get a ride from a friend, I got court in the morning, I am 57 years old, I have had no priors, I am a chef/ kitchen manager and work alot of hours..I can't afford to lose my Driver's License.. What are my options? Is there any loop hole? I just don't have the money for a lawyer...

I was recently cited for an OVI and fleeing the scene of an accident (no injuries).
I was cited for an OVI after I had already been home for nearly an hour. I was not drunk when I had the accident, but I was in shock of sorts, having not been in a severe accident before. I drove home not knowing what else to do. When I got there I consumed the equivalent of about 5 or 6 shots of 100 proof vodka I had at the house. When the police arrived (i lived about 3/4 a mile from the accident), I gave them a statement saying I didn't remember the accident and that I hadn't drank when I got home (i found out i had the drinks after the ordeal when I got back home and noticed quite a bit of vodka missing from my bottle). Is there a way to amend my statement? Or should I let my PD know on my pretrial date? Its a first offense OVI, and ive only had one moving violation in 3 years.

How should I go about my court case for an underage drinking ticket?
I am over 18 years old. There was a party a friends house and it got busted by sheriffs. I did run initially but I didn't know it was the cops at first. I thought it was a parent busting the party since the cops don't normally come out to were we live. But the cop didn't site me for that. I got underage drinking on a private property but the cops never seen me with a beer and never gave me a breathalyzer test. They also never said my rights if that matters. So what should at the court hearing that's in a 3 days?
