You had 1 or 2 too many. You thought you were ok to drive home, but you got stopped for a minor traffic violation and the officer smelled alcohol. What do you do now? Refusing to take a breath test can result in you losing your driver’s license for a whole year.
Even for a first DUI, the penalties are severe. They include 12 months of supervised probation, hefty fines and fees, community service, classes, and jail time. When you factor in what it can do to your insurance rates, possibly losing your job, and what it would be like to not have a driver’s license for an extended period of time, a DUI conviction can cost you thousands of dollars and have far reaching consequences for years to come.
In addition, if you refused to take the State sponsored breath test, you only have 30 days from the date of your arrest to request an administrative hearing in order to try to keep your driver’s license from being suspended for up to 12 months.
An experienced DUI attorney is essential in order to effectively navigate this process. Many Prosecutors will tell you that a DUI trial can be more complex than a murder case. If you have been charged with a DUI, you need an attorney, period. Call Michael Fulcher today to help you with your DUI.
