Are you asking what sentence you face?
do you mean 119 in breath?
It's not particularly good news.
I wouldn't worry about no licence no insurance. That is the least of your concerns.
This is a high reading and you have a history.
There was also a collision although thankfully nobody else was involved.
I'm afraid that this does cross the custodial threshold. You may escape it in favour of a suspended sentence.
You never really know what Magistrates will do. They do have sentencing guidelines now but they randomly disapply them and also, in my view, most of them are just too stupid to get it right. The Magistry is not a very respected tribunal.
There is no way around the fact that, if they apply the guidelines correctly, you are at risk of a short custodial sentencing though.
I'm afraid a ban is inevitable. It will also attract the higher levels because this is a second offence in 10 years. In any event you are revoked so it matters not.
If you want to improve your chances I would start looking into some alcohol therapy independently. That usually goes down well.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Not really. At least it is obviously better than you having lots of offending history but there is still one relevant matter and you can't hide from that.
Six months is the maximum but you won't get anything like that.
Normally it would be 14- 28 days.
The point is a short sharp shock.
The point that gives you in mitigation is that a custodial sentence would be over very quickly and then you would be released unreconstructed. A community order and a suspended sentence would demand much more from you in the long run and be greater punishment.
All the best.
