Silver Spring Law

I was pulled over for a headlight, was sober but cops smelled marijuana on just my jacket. searched car, didn't find anything and while waiting for a female personal to search my person randomly started asking questions about alcohol. I stated multiple times that I had nothing to drink but they arrested me and at the station, I initially refused the test because I didn't understand how I failed the SFST than less than 2 mins changed my mind but the officer said because I signed the form I couldn't change my mind. They then charged me with everything under the DUI/DWI "bracket" (about 6 charges) saying he had to because I refused.

Convicted of DUI on March 13. 1st DUI. Currently on informal probation: Keep a SR-22, Insurance, and submit to breathalyzer when ask by law enforcement., and of course 0 Alcohol tolerance while driving .

First DUI in NJ in 2006 at age 18 - BAC .06 Second DUI 2013 at age 25 - BAC .10 - pulled over for doing 55 mph in a 40 mph zone. I am not sure what my first charge actually was, but my license was never suspended. I will be contacting my lawyer from NJ tomorrow to get the details on that incident. I am just looking to be proactive and sign up for classes that the judge may make me take. If I make the first move, I would think that would look good in his or her eyes, but I am just worried about wasting time, effort, and money on some classes when I may not be required to take them, or I am required to take another class other than the one I sign up for. Advice?
