Q: I was charged with a DUI with a BAC of .15. There was no accident, no children in the car, and it is my first offense. I live in Loudoun County, Virginia. Is it possible to get my charge reduced to a .14 to avoid going to jail for the mandatory 5 days?
A:Yes, very often, the goal will be to get a charge reduced by "shaving points" off the BAC, where there is a 5 day mandatory jail sentence and mandatory ignition interlock for anything at or above .15 BAC.
