Anxious and worried

Postby Leah » February 4th, 2016, 9:43 pm


I am in Tasmania, and I was pulled over a few nights ago and blew 0.123. I was taken in and I am assuming charged. I am 32 years old and this is the first time I have ever dealt with police. I thought they were putting me in jail and I was an absolute mess :(

The police were amazing and looked after me well as they could see how distraught I was. There was so much information and it was a lot to take in, so I have a few questions.

How long does it take to receive a summons to attend court?
Will I go to jail?
Can I lose my job?
How long will I lose my license for?
Is there any point discussing how I came to drink driving or should I just say what I think, and that is, I was stupid, I'm guilty, there are no excuses and I am very remorseful.
How do I apply for a restricted licence?
Will this be on my record for everyone to see forever?

Okay, so I have about 10,000 more questions but I will just wait for a reply to the first 50!

Kind regards,
