DUI Defense Lawyers
Have You Been Arrested For a DUI in Broken Arrow?
Facing DUI charges can be daunting. Due to the serious nature of these accusations, serious consequences may arise if convicted, including jail time, fines, losing your license and community service. Pleading guilty to a DUI or going to court without the proper legal defense will most likely make it impossible for you to walk away without severe penalties.
Working to Avoid Serious Consequences
The legal limit can sneak up on people unsuspectedly. During a dinner with great friends you haven’t seen in a long time, or after visiting your relatives for a Thanksgiving gathering, the legal limit is very easily attainable, sometimes taking only one or two drinks. No matter how easy it may be to find yourself in trouble with drinking and driving, the judicial system treats these harshly.
- Even for a simple, no nonsense, first-time DUI, you can expect the following if found guilty:
- 180-day license suspension
- A misdemeanor charge
- 10-day minimum of jail time up to 1 year
- Up to $1,000 in fines
These penalties magnify if you are facing your second, third, or fourth DUI, if you were driving with a child in the car, if there was significant property damage, or if someone was hurt or killed. Penalties can reach a permanent revocation of your license, and depending on the circumstances, can reach life imprisonment. Be sure to contact qualified criminal defense attorneys to help keep your freedom.
