Lack of knowledge slept in car to sober up instead of driving and eventually was knocked on window in morning by cops and arrested for DUI.
got out on bail next day and have been wondering what’s going to happen eversince. The stress is killing.
1. Refused to take the chemical testing, don’t know how that negatively affects the case. (I had no idea when they asked me and just like everything else in life, when they said it’s optional and you have the right to not take it, I chose not to.)
only now realize they can use it as admission of guilt.
2. What’s the usual outcome of a first DUI like such, too worried if I have to see a jail.
3. What kind of attorney to hire- criminal defense attorney asking ~2k and the attorney criminal defense +immigration asking 4.5k
4. does a serious misdemeanor which is my case, a cause for deportation?
Just in a bad spot and looking for friends who can help. some mOre situation information and anyone who has been here before can be most valuable support right now.
thanks in advance. Never drink and be near a car with keys.
