My first DUI was in 2012 in Montgomery County and my probation just ended May 2014. But i got charged with a 2nd DUI on Thanksgiving of this year (2014).

First offense. No accident. I was given a Blood Test (not sure why). I had no drugs (other than Tylenol) in my system. I was released via ROR, and an A.R.D. was explained to me before I left jail. I don't know my BAC; is there a way of retrieving this before my trial? If they offer me an A.R.D, and my BAC was .1%+, what are the chances of me spending time in jail/prison? Do other circumstances weigh on the DA or Judge's opinions for hearings like this? For instance I'm a College and Masters Grad. I own a Small Business.
