Penalties of a DUI Conviction
If you have been arrested and charged with DUI, it is important to seek experienced legal assistance as soon as possible. A conviction could have serious negative impacts on your life and future, and our firm will use tailored legal strategies for your case. We stay up to date on federal and state laws, and will defend your rights in court.
The penalties of a DUI conviction may include:
- License suspension
- Prison time
- Mandatory participation in a substance abuse course
First-time offenses may be charged as misdemeanors, resulting in up to 6 months in jail, heavy fines, and license suspension. In addition, your car may be impounded by police, and you may have to drive with an ignition interlock device (IID) for a period of time. Subsequent DUI convictions may count as felony offenses, resulting in serious penalties and a permanent mark on your criminal record.
Diligent Representation for the DUI Court Process
When you are pulled over on suspicion of a DUI, the police may use a variety of tests to determine your level of intoxication. These include field sobriety tests, which are notoriously unreliable, as well as breathalyzer tests and blood tests. You may refuse to take a field sobriety or breathalyzer test, but if you refuse to submit to a blood test, you may face an automatic license suspension of up to 1 year.
Once arrested, you have 10 days to request a hearing. It is important to act quickly, and to have knowledgeable representation on your side. Our lawyer will gather evidence to build your case, and will defend your rights and future in court.
