My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida
I got arrested for DUI in Florida about a month ago. I am in my 40s, a professional person, and I've never been arrested before. I took a wrong turn down a one way street in a busy downtown area that was unfamiliar to me and got pulled over. I feel I did well on the field sobriety tests, but was arrested anyway. I blew a .097 and .099. I have hired an attorney, but he is hesistant to make predictions about how the case will go. I am just trying to get an idea of what I am likely to face as a first arrest. I've looked at the Florida statutes, so I know what could happen, but I'm more interested in knowing what is likely to happen. I'm most curious to know if they will offer me something else than a DUI conviction under these circumstances.
