A: Cases where someone is charged with only slightest degree (under .08) but they police still believe you are impaired happen frequently. The police may have only submitted charges until they are able to test the blood they collected. However, it is impossible to give you an actual answer without more information. I suggest speaking with an experienced DUI attorney. Most attorneys on here, including myself, offer free initial consultations. Gather all of your paperwork and set one up. Best of luck!
