I was driving someone home who was intoxicated. I had 1 drink about 20 min prior to being charged and refused to blow. I was not pulled over for anything. I was sitting at a gas station calling the other person's roommate to come pick her up and officer approached my vehicle and asked what I was doing (from the passenger side). I explained and he took my license to run. Upon returning to the vehicle he demanded that I get out. He said that he smelled alcohol on me (from the passenger side) and requested breath test. I refused simply because I did not feel like he had any reason to charge me. I have never had any other charges. I have an attorney but am seeking advice on whether or not I can win at trial or should I just take an adjudication which requires a $1200 DUI class.
My advice: listen to your lawyer. I suspect I know what he or she has already told you to do: take the deal....

Gardendale Judge charged me with contempt of court on April 4, 2014 and put me on 1 year probation which I later learned was because he thought I was intoxicated.

Where can I find a volunteer attorney to help me asap?
