A reading of 70µg of alcohol per 100ml of breath is not enough to warrant a custodial sentence if you have only been charged with drink driving. Your personal background will go some way to helping to minimise your penalty even further but at present the court will likely ban you for a period of between 17 and 22 months alongside either a fine or community order.
