Could use some comforting or maybe even legal advice if anybody on here is familiar with the system.... I'll try to make this quick.. 1 1/2 years ago I made a stupid mistake and got a DUI (blew .091, legal limit here is .08) - Now before I'm judged - Believe it or not I had never driven drunk before and the only reason I drove that night was because we were in my friends 2 seater (350z) and he was FAR GONE ... I didn't have that much to drink and we were only driving 3 miles down from a pool hall to his house..... Right or wrong it doesn't matter, ran into a DUI checkpoint and I got owned... Fast forward to 2 weeks ago - I finally got convicted of it and was put on 1 year probation but could end it in 6 months if I took care of everything.. Part of the probation was cannot drive (license was resuspended for 6 months) - I always catch rides from friends and not realizing the seriousness of probation (never been in legal trouble before, period, and im 24) I had to make it to work because I couldn't afford to be late again) - Long story short I get pulled over for going through a yellow... I'm facing violation of probation which according to my PO could be up to a year in the county jail... I'm scared shitless right now while I await this hearing, is it really possible for somebody who made 1 mistake in his life to get put away for a year? wtf... I have a good job, I NEVER have had trouble with law, drug possesions, none of that.... To help my case I took care of everything outstanding I had on my license and now have the hardship license for business purposes only until the 6 months suspension is up and I'm really hoping the judge to take me lightly when I show him this... Has anybody had or heard of a similar case and the consequences from it? This sucks!!
