I live in Michigan.
Hello. I am a 19 year old male who in the past two years has had my liscense revoked for 2 drinking and drivings. Almost a year ago I received a Minor In Possession of alcohol, and I blew almost .10, which isnt much. I served two small (30, 54) jail sentences for one of the DUIs and the mip (well also I had probation, AA meetings, etc). The other night a police officer was called to the house I was at about someones warrant and he saw me with a beer in my hand, although I had only sipped it a few times. I did a pbt and it came up .030 because it was so recent on my breath. I asked to do it again in a few minutes, so before he got done with my ticket he pbt'd me again. I hadnt moved or done anything in this time. The first pbt result was .000, as was the second right after that. So he thought I had something in my mouth, I showed him otherwise and I gave a huge breath on the pbt, it came out .000 or .001 but it went up(?) to .006 or .008 something small like that. He still gave me the ticket and I have to appear in court for it soon. I was planning on talking to the officer about it all tomorrow. What I want to know is, is there any way to have the charges dismissed without going to a hearing, and what kind of judgement do you suppose I would get? I am not currently on probation. Thank you lots.
