DUI penalties can be severe. Let an experienced DUI Attorney help.
DUI’s can be life changing, and the penalties are serious. Possible penalties include:
First Time Offenders
If you are convicted for a first time and over the age of 21, you may face license suspension, substantial fines, community service, alcohol classes, and, in some cases, jail.
Second Time Offenders
If you are convicted for a second time, you may face a lengthly license suspension, substantial fines, and a minimum of 5 days in jail or 240 hours of community service.
Third Time Offenders
Penalties for a third conviction are very serious, and it may even be upgraded to a felony. Your license will be suspended for years, and you could receive a lengthly prison sentence.
What a DUI Attorney can do for you.
Adding to those punishments is the fact that DUI cases are often difficult to defend, since cases are typically based on an officer’s direct observation. But there are specific sets of rules and regulations that police officers must follow when they stop a person they suspect is a drunk driver.
The prosecutors will be experienced. They may take advantage of weaknesses, loopholes, and other legal aspects to convict you.
