What is the best possible outcome for a DUI charge?

For a first offense driving under the influence (DUI), sometimes the best outcome is Probation Before Judgment or “PBJ”.   The is a decision that must be made after careful consideration with your attorney and the pros and cons of trying the case before a Judge or Jury.  A PBJ is not a conviction, which means you will typically avoid time in jail, and also escape a driving under the influence conviction on your driving record, which would result in driving record points and higher insurance rates.
