My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
Hello! I was recently at an event and had 5.5 12oz beers (5%) in 2hrs and 15 minutes. I was stopped by the police, refused a test, and didn't get my blood drawn until the total time after my first drink was 4hrs and 20min (meaning I had that long to 'sober' up).
Since I won't have my blood results for a few weeks I don't know if I should get a lawyer. Assuming my body absorbs .02 for each beer, and assuming the body excretes alcohol at a rate of .015 per hour, mathematically I should be at around .06.
Do you guys think that there is any chance I'll come back below a .08? Should I get a lawyer? I don't want to spend 4K on a lawyer if my test will eventually come back negative.
