I was charged with an MIC, what are the consequences? Posted on August 04, 2011

On May 23, 2011 I was pulled over due to my tag light being out. It was around 1:00 o'clock in the morning, and the officer said he smelt alcohol, so he gave me the field sobriety tests. I passed all, except for the breathe test. I blew a .019, and because I was under the legal limit of .02, he charged me with an MIC and not a DUI. BUT. I had a friend in the car with me, who had beer on him; He was allowed to call his parents and go home. I on the other hand, was not allowed to make any phone calls until I was released from jail 4 hours later. I have court today at 5, and I do not have an attorney. Because I blew so low, is it fair that they charge me with anything at all since I am 18 and the legal limit for an 18 year old is .02 and I was clearly not drunk? Please help
