Being arrested for DUI or DWI is more than just an embarrassment for family and friends, it can be detrimental to your career, or get you sent to jail.
DUI charges are Class A misdemeanors which are punishable by up to one year in jail and a $2,500 fine. Court costs and treatment can easily double or triple the amount of your fine. In contrast, felony DUI charges can result in a long prison sentence.
With any DUI arrest, you also face a civil case that will lead to summary suspension of your driver’s license. If you are convicted of the DUI charge, your driver’s license will be revoked.
The loss of your driver’s license, or license suspension, can have a profound effect on your life. The sooner you contact Stephen Poindexter DUI Defense Attorney, the sooner we can go to work to protect your ability to drive.
