Hope you are well.
I am being charged with reckless driving and drunk driving I was involved in an accident. I did not gave a statement from my side.
My blood alcohol level was 0.15 over the limit.
This will be my first offense ever, would like not to have a criminal record and also not end up in jail.
The other person that was involved said I drove into them, but my car has mostly damage on the left side.
After the crash my car was facing towards oncoming traffic, it the statement the person says I drove into the back of them, which is not possible.
Hope to hear from you soon.
