I had a BAC of .31 last night. I don't remember hitting a parked car, but apparently somebody followed me home and called the police. The police entered my house where I live with my cousins. They took me from my room and brought me to jail. I blew .31 at my house and then .23 at the jail. This is my first offense. I've never been arrested. What can I expect in Indiana? I realize that I need help, but I'm 21 years old and in college and I really can't afford prison. My parents are hiring a lawyer.
allow your parents to hire the lawyer and listen to the advice that they give you. good luck
I was given a DUI for having marijuana in my system while driving. I was originally pulled over for rolling through the stop sign, cop said he smelled weed in my car, so and so forth. Had to sit in jail. Got a court date. Got sentenced to 40 hours comm service and Evaluation @ A&D. Is there anything I can do to get this dismissed or something? I really wasn't intoxicated while driving and I think having to through the whole jailing process was enough time wasted for all of this. I don't want to make it sound like money is an issue but I have no plans on paying them the amounts I owe in court costs.. It's like throwing money away. What are my options and best outcome of the situation?

of alcohol- im only 20yrs. old band leaving the scene of an accident- because I slightly hit a tree in an abandon backyard of someones, causing no damage. and one other small misdemeanor that I honestly cant even remember right now sorry. They offered to drop 2 of the small misdemeanors if I agreed to drinking and driving. The thing is I wasnt driving when the police arrived, I was cutting out the air bag parked out front with no key in the ignition, no lights on or anything. I was drunk though but I did not admit to driving what so ever. I told my defender that I will take every charge except the dui. I'm curious as to what the odds might be of the court maybe offering me another plea, or really go to trial on a 1st offense 20 year old?
You should ask your lawyer. He knows far more about your case and the court you are in than does anyone here. They...
