Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi! My name is***** am an attorney with over 18 years experience in the law. Hopefully I can assist with your legal question today.
The machine that they use to test for Blood Alcohold Content measures the breath to determine how much alcohol, by percentage, is in the blood stream.It is designed to measure alcohol. It would not pick up on other drugs...to test for such drugs, the police would need to perform a urine or drug test. So the machine will not be impacted by other medications.At the intitial hearing, I expect the prosecutor will offer her a "deal" "plea bargain". This is an agreement where the prosecution agrees to limit the punishment in return for a plea of guilt. IF she is satisfied with this plea offer, she can accept it on the court date.Otherwise, she can plea not guilty and seek an attorney to assist herAs for fines/court costs? This can vary quite a bit....but generally speaking the court costs are typically a few hinder dollars (less than $500) and fines typically are a bit morePlease let me know if you have more questions. Happy to help if I can.
