The Legal Ramifications of a DUI Charge
Driving Under the Influence, or DUI, is a common predicament in which many people find themselves. What starts out as a good time with friends, or the end of a bad day, turns into getting behind the wheel of the car and an officer asking you to blow into a breathalyzer, only to discover that your blood-alcohol level is over 0.08 and you are in a world of trouble. A charge of DUI is no laughing matter. It can include spending the night behind bars waiting for someone to post bail for your release, as well as the following:
Fines of up to thousands of dollars,
The loss of driving privileges,
Community service hours,
The rest of your evening and the next couple years will be impacted by a few drinks and a bad idea to drive. It’s a horrible reality that many find themselves in, and a situation in which legal support is advisable.
