Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Below are the worst penalties he can face. As a first time offender, the prosecutor should not seek the max sentence, unless there are facts to support it. Moreover, if he takes a plea deal and does not go to trial, the penalties could be at a minimum level. I know you do not want him to go to jail, but he may have to serve a day or two, if a minimum sentence is imposed.
First Offense BAC of .15 or greater
