In order to remotely answer your question we would need way more information. Are you getting help from an attorney? What are the facts of your case? Impossible and would only be able to speculate without at least some information about your situation.
The short answer is YES. The issue becomes when will they lay the charges and how they prove the elements of the offence without sobriety tests of a breathalyzer? Were blood sample taken? Was there a video of the event? How decent and reliable are the eyewitnesses?...Read more »
