Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
Driving while intoxicated is a very serious matter. Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol are impaired in their perception, thought processes, motor skills and even physiology. These limitations to normal behavior can slow reaction times and law enforcement is always on alert for those that they believe are exhibiting driving behavior consistent with alcohol consumption. They patrol certain areas and are on a mission to deter DWI drivers. They can establish hard evidence against you in the form of a blood alcohol test that measures the amount of alcohol in blood, urine or the breath.
The penalties for DWI are harsh, and they get more severe with each subsequent offense. Some who are accused of a DWI crime may choose to refuse a breath test which comes with its own legal consequences in addition to a DMV refusal hearing which can determine the status of your drivers' license , as well as your eligibility for an exception for work and other critical tasks that require reliable transportation. DWI convictions can have repercussions beyond jail time, financial penalties and license revocation, as offenders may face challenges finding employment. These are all reasons why those accused of
DUI should seek the assistance of a skilled attorney immediately.
