1) If my license is suspened, but I obey every single traffic law, how would I ever be pulled over? I have never been pulled over for "nothing" in 22 years of driving. My attorney tells me you can only be pulled over for "probable cause". 2) I am a first time offender for DUI. What percent chance is there of me going to jail? I have a court date in three days.

I recently lost a judgment on a 2nd DUI bench trial, and want to file for an appeal or new trial. Please see below.
There was no breath test. My field sobriety tests were not perfect, but I performed fairly well. During the tests, my contact lenses fell out. I have -7.5+ vision. (Very poor). I was also suffering from a cold and watery eyes that contributed to the lenses falling out. (Have prescription records to prove that). I also stepped on a rock, and I brought that to the attention of cop. During the video portion of the stop, my driving is perfect. For some reason, the judge believed what happened before and after the video than what he saw on the video. During the final deliberation of judgment, the judge remarked if I can see a rock, then my vision was not an issue. He acted as a judge and medical expert. Medical records were not summoned. Do I have ground to ask for appeal / or new trial ?
There is no way to tell from your posting and in a case like yours even a review of the court file might not answer...
