I know I'm in some serious trouble the other night I was pulled over and arrested with a suspicion of Driving Under the Influence and was subsquently given a breathilzer test which came up with a .20 BAC which I know puts me in the higher tier of consquences.
What I'm curious about is possible options to help minimize the damage/charges I'm facing. I'm currently a college student who is just home visiting for the summer. I go to college on the other side of the state which makes it difficult to come back and forth for multiple hearings if I hire a lawyer. As well I don't even own an automobile so the whole losing the liscence and/or having a breathilizer installed in my car doesn't really affect me. Tomorrow I'm planning to sign myself up for alcohol classes back in my home town to hopefully show the court that I'm making an effort to correct my mistake. My question is should I just bite the bullet and plead no contest to the charge and throw my self at the mercy of the court and pray for minimal consquences or hire an attorney that may or may not help my case at all.
