DUI defense strategy options must be considered based on details

Drunk driving convictions can have a vast impact on your life. As we discussed last week, drunk driving can lead to civil and criminal cases. The civil cases usually have monetary awards. The criminal cases can lead to incarceration, fines and loss of your driver's license. With that in mind, you can easily see that defending yourself in a criminal drunk driving case is vital. We can help you to explore the options that you have available for a defense.

Let's look at the possible consequences of a criminal conviction for drunk driving. On a first offense, you will have to spend at least 10 days in jail. Your license will be gone for 90 days. You also face fines and possible community service and education programs.

On a second offense, you will spend at least 90 days in jail. You will lose your license for a year and will be required to use an ignition interlock for a year after your license is reinstated. Other penalties are also possible.

Third offenses and extreme DUI convictions also have harsh penalties. All of these possible penalties are evidence that you must build your defense to the best extent possible. Some of the options you have include challenging the reason for the traffic stop, challenging the field sobriety test and challenging the results or administration of the breath test or blood test.

Other defense options might also be possible. We can look into your case to help you learn which options might be suitable for your case. Once we look into the possibilities, we can get started on building a defense for your case.
