If you were charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in Montgomery, then you’ll need experienced legal representation to avoid a range of serious penalties. The Stallings Law Firm has significant experience defending DUI cases.
The Penalties and Convictions of a DUI
The criminal penalties for a DUI conviction may cause serious consequences to your house and other liabilities. In case you have been charged with multiple DUIs, 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 DUI 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 DUI 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 DUI (not intense) the time spent with the officers in arrest, equates to someday, eliminating the need for further jail time if convicted.
For intense DUI with elevated blood alcohol content of .15 percent and up, a charge of aggravated DUI, or any replicate DUI offense in seven years, the penalties are significantly worse. You’ll want an experienced Montgomery DUI defense lawyer to answer your questions, investigate the circumstances of your case, and work to protect your driver’s license and your driving record.
