What to do before my court date if I have a first time offense DUI and blew a 0% BAC but failed the sobriety test?

I have never been in trouble with the law before therefore I don’t know much about the law.

Given the seriousness of the criminal offense that you have written about I suggest that you immediately consult with a criminal defense attorney before your court appearance (arraignement) to see what your legal options are. A blood alcohol result of 0% is good for you but failing the field sobriety test is bad. Possibly you are being charged for being under a controlled substance while driving a motor vehicle.
