If you have never faced a DUI, you can probably think of a million reasons why you should try to avoid one now. Along with high fines and increased insurance rates, there is a long list of other reasons it is beneficial to your life to stay out of DUI trouble. Possible jail time and the requirement of having an interlock device installed in your car are also good reasons NOT to get a DUI.

Unfortunately, it is not up to you whether you are charged with a DUI if you get pulled over after drinking. The officer that makes the stop has the discretion to charge you with DUI, and if so you must aggressively defend the case. Popular methods of defense include negotiating a term of probation, during which you will likely be required to perform community service. To be exact, you will have to perform 50 hours of community service. Other components of possible punishment include:

  • Monetary fines.
  • Loss of your driver’s license.
  • Potential jail time.

While you can fight the suspension of your license by seeking a modified right to drive, you are not likely to get out of community service. If you do not perform the 50 hours of work, you will be required to pay a fine for each hour not spent at a community service activity. Paying this fine is on top of other court costs and fines, and can really add up. In order to reach a solution that works for you, your life, and your schedule, call us for help. We can negotiate terms that are satisfactory to you, and fit your needs.
