Hello and thank you for allowing me to address your legal question.

For a first offense, you’re most likely looking at fines, community service, probation, and license suspension. It is unlikely that you would get any jail time. Of course, I’m assuming you weren’t violating other laws as well, which would enhance your punishment (e.g. speeding). Also, if your blood alcohol level is above .15, then your sentence will be enhanced.

If the information that I provided was helpful, please remember to ACCEPT my post as that is the only way I will receive credit and compensation for my answer. Thank you and good luck!

what test is used against me? the one taken when i was pulled over or the one taken at the station?
Expert:  TJ, Esq. replied 8 years ago.
Both tests can be used against you. Obviously the test taken at the station occurred later in time, so if this goes in front of a jury, they'll likely take that fact into account when weighing the evidence. Does that make sense?
