Woke up in a Jail cell last night. DUI. 500 dollar bail. My license will probably be suspended for 6 months 200 something bucks to get my car back. My court date is the 17th of July. This is my first offense. I am asking now if someone could please help me understand the possibilities here. What should I expect out of the court date? I am one year under age too. I don't remember half the night, but I ran over my cats tail, broke it, thats more money there too.

Selene confronted me crying and insists that I have a problem...and I'm not really in a position to argue. I have agreed to never touch alcohol again, period, as some of my worse memories involve it. It's hard enough for me to stay out of trouble sober than to have to wake up in jail so clueless as to what happened that I find myself wondering if I killed someone. I don't want to check myself into a clinic just yet and have talked her out of commiting me, so this is my last chance here. I told her the second I take another drink to check me in, but basically begged she give me the oppertunity to go without it on my own. It's been a long time since I've felt this terrible.

Crap Smokey. That sucks.

Sadly, I'm not where I can find out how those court dates usually go. What state do you live in? and How far above the legal (BAC) were you?

Dude, if there's something I can do, lemme know. I'll do my best.

Consult a lawyer as soon as possible. (S)He'll be able to answer all of your questions, and be able to tell you how you should proceed. Admitting that you've quit drinking might get you a reduced penalty (not that I think you deserve one - you fucked up, you should pay the price). Also, since it's your first offense, you probably don't have too much to worry about.

I really hope things go well. Once I drove home with a slight buzz. But I'd be too frightened to attempt it while overtly drunk.

Good luck with abstaining. And I hope Selene will be there for you. i'm a serial-killer :)

I don't know the legal penalties or what you can expect in court. I do know someone who does, though. Post this at HG and I imagine one of the lawyers who post there can answer your questions. Free of charge, to.

But you should still get a lawyer.

well I am definately going to see one. The ticket I got on bail says that in the next 10 days I can go get a permit, like a learners permit. So I can drive to work and stuff with the restrictions of a 15 year old. I'm not worried really I just want to know what is coming.

The part that really sucks is how selene is acting, she isn't talking to me now, not like I blame her.

Wow, I didn't know you were underage, Smokey. I thought you were over 20, or something.

I hope this gets sorted out for the better, for you. Why would you go to a clinic, though?

Alcoholism. I think I may be one.

I am 20, I don't think it matters though since I am a legal adult, the providers of the alcohol would be in more trouble than me.

...not only that, but all the cats in the world are going to rise up en masse and take revenge for Muffin's tail.

FIRST AND FOREMOST, GET AN ATTORNEY. Do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT discuss this at work. It depends whether you are a fulltime or part-time employee, but Clear Channel is famous for that morality clause in your contract. If you signed a contract, check it. Chances are, you've signed a clause that states that if you are arrested for drugs,DUI, child porn, or anything which might embarrass the station, you waive your severance after they fire your ass and toss you into the gutter. And if you're a part-timer, you're screwed. Even if you've got a good PD, the company can jack you up for this hard.

Man, what the hell were you thinking? I want to be your friend right now, but not as much as I want to take you out back and beat your head against the concrete. Dude, get fired from CC for DUI and you might as well take up the exciting career opportunities offered to you in the fast-paced world of food service. I don't know what other companies are in town, Infinity? Cox? I can assure you, they're going to want to know why you got canned, and you won't be able to lie. Even competing companies talk---radio's a very small town.

I'll calm down and come back to being Nice Lady, but the radio jock in me is roaring right now. I'm logging off.

Shit this just pisses me off. Get an attorney tomorrow. Florida doesn't fuck around.

I found a website with the potential punishments in Florida.

First offense, you're facing between $250-$505 in fines ($505-$1000 if there was a minor in the car or your BAC was above 0.20%), a license suspension of 180 days to a year, a year's probation, 0-6 months incarceration (0-9 if there was a minor in the car or your BAC was above 0.20%), a 10 day impoundment of your vehicle (which may not be concurrent with jail time), DUI school, etc.

Source

As much as I'd like to be sympathetic, because you seem to be an okay guy, I really can't tolerate drunk drivers. You shouldn't be on the road.

I don't remember making the concious decision to drive and I am an excellent driver, excellent. Every single other time I had taken strict precautions with how I drank and who was driving me home, I was at sort of a vunerable moment and I blew it big time. I don't blame any of you for thinking bad of me, because the harsh reality is you should. You shouldn't tolerate drunk drivers useless...and I don't, so as much as I hate what is happening to me now, I deserve it. I'm in no position to get defensive.

My BA level was .166 I'm afraid I may be going back to jail.

It was charged as a misdemeanor

I'm not doubting your ability to drive sober, Smokey, and I don't believe you should be removed from the road permanently. I'm of the belief that drunk driving is a massively reckless abuse of the privilege to drive, and so that privilege should be revoked for a significant length of time (~ a year, first offense). Of course, I could well be overreacting when I advocate this sort of thing, and you do have to take into account that I have an anti-driver bias because I've lived all my life as a pedestrian in a city where 90% of drivers are incompetant. The fewer of you people on the road, the better.

My licesne will be suspended for 6 months, that is going to happen. My court date is on July 17th. I don't want to be going to jail that day, that is the biggest fear I have. Otherwise I can cope. Like I said I've been and I could not begin to tell you how much I detest it, I'll even swallow my pride and say I fear it. Noone has even humored the idea of jail time other than myself and you just now, every officer I have asked has told me not to worry about jail time but Until I am assured by a lawyer that on my court date I will not be sent to prison I will be a ball of nerves. This being the case I'm not sure how much posting I will be doing here and to be completely honest I am ashamed to be even here. I don't know we will see how this turns out, I'm too nervous to think about anything else so I'm going to call my friend up and arrange a meeting with his lawyer.

I don't know much about how strictly Florida enforced jail time for a first time DUI, or how your previous run-ins with the law may factor in. From what you've said, it doesn't sound like you did any actual damage or hit anything/one (except to your cat), so I don't see why they would put you in jail for this.

Smokey, I'm sorry to hear that you have found yourself in this situation (and my sympathies to go your cat). Like the others have said, it would be very wise of you to seek legal assistance on this matter.
The fact that this is your first offense and that you are willing to sober up will help your case.

2. His blood alcohol content was .166, which, if I'm not mistaken, is twice the legal limit (.08) in Florida.

I realise that, Zippo, but given the range of punishments available (fines, etc.), jail time seems a bit extreme.

I apologize for my prior ignorance. After browsing some websites on the DUI laws in Florida, I realize that jail time is an extreme sentence for Smokey's case; you're absolutely right.

Quoted from Zippo279:

I don't think your post was ignorant. It does seem extreme with the sites you have shown me, but nevertheless it is possible (I am sad to say) that they will atleast hold me for a day or so in prison, this I can handle but would rather not. Still it seems that certain aspects of probation are considered punishment enough in my case.

Let me say again, Zippo for helping me find those websites I thank you. Seriously you have no idea how I worked myself up into a nervous wreck. Any lack of freedome is maddening to me, absolutely, jail is among worse. I know some freedomes will be taken for a while but just the thought of going back there freaks me out. Thanks for your time Zippo I appreciate it to no end. You're an Angel. Just for reputation sake I want you guys to know that this is not general behavior, I do not go around constantly disreguarding laws, or the well being of myself or anyone else. If you do look down on me because of this not only do I not blame you, but I think you should. There is no excuse for it. I'll pay for this for a long long time, but it won't happen again.

For the record, the cat is ok...unless he poops on the floor again.
