My question involves criminal law for the state of: CA
2 days ago I have stopped by highway patrol. They took me out of the car and they said they have been following me for 2 miles. I'm sure I didn't do anyting wrong while I was driving, and they didn't tell me the reason to stop. I was scared, and paniced, I couldn't answer their questions very well. I couldn't walk on a straight line with my shaking knees. I had the breathalyzer, and they took me to jail. I had another breath test at the station. Neither the cops stopped me nor the ones at the station told me the results.
the next day when I get out I saw .17 BAC on my prisoner's receipt.
I know the exact amount of alcohol I had that night. I had 3 whiskeys on the rocks served by my friend. we took the same glass and measured the amount it takes. Me, my friend, and every other person partied with us that night is %100 sure that I had 7oz. of regular Jack Danels. I'm 180 pounds, 5.10 tall, and I started drinking at 10:30 pm, I have stopped at 2am, and I have taken to jail at 3am.
I tried every single BAC estimators available online and they all estimate my BAC was .08 at arrest time and .07 at jail time.
This is my first DUI charge, I have clean traffic and criminal record. I'm a responsible person, I always stop drinking after 2-3 drinks if I have to drive. Maybe at the time they stopped me my BAC .08, and I would understand if it was a little bit over, but I know it was not .17.
After talking to every attorney in my area I'm thinking to hire Dr. DUI (Mr. Okorocha) to take my case to a jury trial. He doesn't promise me a dismiss, but he says that there is obviously something wrong, and he will go all the way to prove my innocence. If he wins he will deserve every penny I'll pay him. but if he looses in total I will have to pay at leaset 3 times more than if had said 'plead guilty'.
I have to decide very soon, and I don't know what to do. is there anybody experienced enough to give me an advice?
