The most commonly committed criminal offense in the United States is driving under the influence (DUI). Unfortunately, many people who would otherwise never encounter legal trouble can find themselves under arrest because they’ve had “one too many.” In fact, it’s easy to reach the legal limit for blood alcohol content (.08 here in Indiana) with as few as three beers.
It’s important that you contact an experienced DUI lawyer as soon as possible to avoid the life-altering consequences of a conviction.
Some of the ways that a DUI conviction can affect your future include:
Between court dates, jail time, and court-mandated community service, a DUI conviction can cause conflicts with your work schedule. Additionally, a DUI conviction can make it difficult to get to work—your license may be revoked for up to two years. If your position relies heavily on your ability to drive, you may find yourself unemployed following a DUI conviction.
Once your driving privileges have been restored, you may find that your insurance rates have significantly increased. In most states, your automobile insurance rates are likely to double (or even triple) for at least three years. This is because insurance companies consider drivers who have been convicted of a DUI as “high-risk” drivers (even if you were previously in a preferred class or received safe-driver discounts).
Without a license, it may be difficult for you to run simple errands, visit your family, or satisfy other obligations. You will not be able to drive to your favorite nightclubs, camping spots, shopping malls, and other destinations. If you value your personal life and you’ve been charged with a DUI, then contact an experienced DUI lawyer who will fight to protect your driving privileges and freedoms.
