Last week I was pulled over for speeding on the freeway. When the officer came up to the car, he told me to get out of the car because he smelled alcohol. I did admit to drinking beer at a friend's house an hour before driving. I am only 19 years old so he told me I could not refuse a breathalyzer test. After that, my car got towed, and he issued me a citation for speeding and told it me was not a DUI since I did not blow over .08, but however because I'm under 21 he informed me that my license would be suspended for a year and gave me a temporary license.
Very odd. The officer told you quite a few things that are just plain wrong or that you possibly misunderstood. If...

You should check with the court
Here are the facts: I dropped my friend off. As I pulled out I saw a cop behind me. I immediately pulled into the lot across from her place and parked to rest up. I fell asleep reclined in the driver's seat with key not in the ignition. I was woken up an hour later by a cop knocking on my window. I opened the door and answered his questions. I told him I parked because I didn't feel well. I said I had been drinking alcohol. He took my license asked if I had warrants out. He handed me back my license and said to sleep it off in the car and go home in the morning. A cop car drove by an hour later and I was still parked, not moving. He did not perform a field sobriety test. He did not give me a breathalyzer. Again, the car was not moving, I was parked with the car off.
It depends. They need evidence to prove DUI. A breath test, blood or urine sample to prove alcohol was in your system...
I got a DUI and took a blood test instead of using a breathalyzer. I'm wondering if my results come back high, would it even be useful to have a lawyer. I am told that lawyer can't do much in terms of lowering class time and can only lower "jail" time. My friend's BAC was .25 and she was sentenced to 9 months class time and only five hours community service on top of the night she did in jail. If I have no hope of lowering my class time and might only be sentenced to a 5 hours service, what is the benefit of a lawyer? I am a first time offender in a fairly lenient city. Also, if I want to have my blood retested, do I have to have a lawyer in order to do that or can I make the request on my own? I know that I will not get the BAC results until after my arraignment date.
The same benefits if your BAC is not high. Review your case in great detail to find a jury issue so that the DA will buckle.
