DUI trouble? Here’s what you need to know

On Behalf of | Feb 14, 2020 | Criminal Law

You wanted to go out with your friends for the evening and have a good time. It had been a few years since you’d all gotten together, so you planned a night away at a local bar and all had a great time. You’d planned to stop drinking an hour or two before you had to drive home so that you could be safe. Time got away from you, though, and the end of the night came sooner than expected.

When you were walking to your car, you were cautious and wondered if you were able to drive safely. You felt like you were stable and that you were in control of yourself, so you decided that it wouldn’t hurt to drive the short distance home. Unfortunately, that was a mistake.

Just a few miles down the road, you saw an incoming vehicle but couldn’t stop in time. Now, you face trouble, because your blood alcohol content (BAC) was over .08%, and another person got hurt.
