I have been charged with careless driving and a 2nd DUI, 3 months after the incident occurred. There is no court date assigned, I was told to call thd court.

I have a 13 year clean driving record. This is my first ticket. I know I was not speeding and what to contest this in court. My ticket is for $75 for driving: "unlawful speed at 27 mph in a posted 15 mph zone. The offense charged is F.S.S 316.187. I want to know if I will get points on my license and what does this F.S.S. 316.187 code mean? The officer said he clocked me on a radar. Where can I found that information on the ticket?

I have a Lawyer hired for my first DUI case which was 3 years ago and will go to trial soon as I entered a plea of not guilty recently. Both charges at this point are "1st time offender" charges as well. I'm on the fence about going to trial for this 2nd DUI. I can't go to jail, I have a full time job and a family. Am I facing Jail time? No injuries on either DUI either or accident. First DUI was in broward county, second was in Palm beach.
For a second dui the mandatory minimum jail time is 10 days, but it could be more.
