Arrested For Drunk Driving?
Driving under the influence (DUI) arrests can happen to anyone. Whether you got behind the wheel of your car because you assumed you were not intoxicated or had a momentary lapse of judgment, our Indianapolis criminal defense lawyer at David E. Deal & Associates understands the amount of stress or fear you may be experiencing now.
DUI Penalties In Indiana
In Indiana, driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08% or higher is illegal. Even first-time DUI offenders can be subject to serious penalties upon conviction. Penalties can be enhanced depending on prior arrests or if injury resulted from a DUI-related accident.
First-time offenses can be penalized by:
- Up to 1 year in jail
- Fines not exceeding $5,000
- Up to a 2-year license suspension
- Permanent criminal record
- Additional consequences, including community service, completion of DUI school, probationary sentence, or increased insurance premiums
Not your first DUI? Keep in mind that the penalties listed above increase for multiple DUI violations and felony DWI offenses.
People make mistakes all the time. If you have had a run-in with the law, do not assume that an arrest will automatically imply that you are guilty. You have the right to fight the charges against you with the help of an experienced and relentless DUI defense lawyer.
