Penalties You May Face if Convicted
The State of South Carolina takes Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charges
extremely seriously and aggressively patrol the roads and highways of
this state for offenders. Sometimes people get wrongly accused of driving
under the influence and are forced to face serious consequences and hard
choices that can impact their family, their employment, and their finances.
Evidence can be mishandled by law enforcement and your rights can be violated.
First time offenders may face up to 30 days in jail and large fines as
well as driver's license suspensions and mandatory participation in
drug or alcohol intervention programs.
Your insurance costs may also increase dramatically. Second, and subsequent
offenders, face even longer jail sentences and larger fines and longer
driver's license suspensions along with court-ordered installation
of an interlock ignition device that you will have to pay for. Therefore,
it is imperative that you retain an experienced
Columbia criminal defense attorney to protect your rights and fight for you. I am a former state prosecutor
who has handled DUI cases on both sides of the courtroom aisle. Let me
put my experience to work for you. Call me today for a free consultation
and we will get started right away.
Defenses that I may be able to assert on your behalf include:
- The arresting officer not having probable cause when making the initial
- Improper administration of field sobriety, breathalyzer, or blood tests
- Improper actions by officers that may have violated your civil rights
- Not being properly read your rights before questioning occurred
