Help with the serious penalties associated with drunk driving

Penalties and consequences for drunk driving charges can be steep. As a result, it is essential for individuals facing DUI/DWI charges to be familiar with criminal defense options to help them with the harsh penalties they can face. Criminal defense strategies help protect accused individuals from false allegations and abuses by authorities.

Drunk driving penalties can include potential incarceration, fines, restriction or revocation of a driver's license, probation, the requirement to enroll in and complete drunk driving or alcoholism course or the requirement of a potential ignition interlock device. An ignition interlock device is a device that measures the driver's blood alcohol content level before it will allow them to operate the motor vehicle. Ignition interlock devices can be costly and complicated to install, and, oftentimes, the accused individual will be required to foot the bill. Jail sentences and driver's license limitations can be long and fines can be high.

In addition, the potential penalties associated with drunk driving charges, consequences can follow the accused individual throughout their life. Consequences can be personal and professional and can relate to employment, education and housing opportunities. A criminal record as a result of a drunk driving charge can plague the accused individual who is facing DUI or DWI charges, allegations and accusations and the weight of the criminal justice system.

It is important to offset these potential penalties and consequences. Criminal defense rights are tools that can help protect accused individuals from the charges they are facing and the potential penalties and consequences associated with those charges.
