Something to think about: A few years ago I got a DUI back in Minnesota when I lived there, I called the prosecuter up myself and worked out a deal with him to reduce the ticket to a reckless driving. Saved myself alot of cash on the front and back end, no lawyer and my insurance didn't go up all that much.
This is what I would do if I was you:
Get a continuance now, make up some excuse so you don't have to go tommorrow
Find out what the "normal" fine/suspension/community service would be
Find out who the prosecuter is
Give him a low ball offer, remind him of any and all clean records, behavior after being pulled over etc.
Hope for the best!
Good luck guys!
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty and well preserved piece but to skid across the line broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, leaking oil, shouting GERONIMO!

IF IT USES THE EXPLOSIVE IGNITION OF PRECIOUS FOSSIL FUELS SO AS TO MAKE A LOUD NOISE; PRODUCE TORQUE AND CAUSE RECOIL. . . . . . . . .
IT IS GOOD.
