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 traffic stop
  • 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
