If you were charged with driving under the influence (DWI) in Montgomery, then you’ll need experienced legal representation to avoid a range of serious penalties. The Stallings Law Firm has significant experience defending DWI cases.
The Penalties and Convictions of a DWI
The criminal penalties for a DWI conviction may cause major consequences to your house and other liabilities. In case you have been charged with multiple DWIs, it is important to contact The Stallings Law Firm to prevent even harsher penalties.
Even for a first-time crime at a blood alcohol level of .08 percent, a DWI arrest could carry serious penalties, including mandatory jail time, an automatic license suspension, and a hefty fine. There is also the installation of the Ignition Interlock Device requirement.
Conviction on a DWI charge also counts as an 8-point moving violation against your driver’s license. Car insurance premiums will grow accordingly. Recent law changes allow lawyers to argue that on a regular DWI (not intense), the time spent with the officers in arrest equates to someday eliminating the need for further jail time if convicted.
For intense DWI with elevated blood alcohol content of .15 percent and up, a charge of aggravated DWI, or any replicate DWI offense in seven years, the penalties are significantly worse. You’ll want an experienced Montgomery DWI defense lawyer to answer your questions, investigate the circumstances of your case, and work to protect your driver’s license and driving record.
