About Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

In recent years, Pooler residents have had an increase in DUI cases and there are at least six rehab centers for drug and alcohol dependence around the city. In the state it is against the law to drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% and higher. The state will also heavily prosecute individuals who drive while under the influence of drugs. While many dismiss driving under the influence as a lesser crime, there are serious penalties associated with a conviction. In addition, because driving while intoxicated is criminal offense it will remain on your record permanently. Having a criminal record may affect your ability to obtain jobs, loans, housing, and even prevent you from traveling.

For a first time DUI conviction you will be subject to harsh fines, jail time, and other obligations such as community service. A first DUI offense is considered a misdemeanor and is punishable by a fine of $300-$1000, jail time for ten days to 12 months, 40 hours of community service, completion of a risk reduction program, probation, and a one year license suspension. What many individuals do not know is that the one year suspension may be stopped. After you are arrested and charged with a DUI you have a 15 day window in which to appeal the automatic suspension of your license. An attorney can help you with this process as well as the other court procedures.

Why hire a criminal defense attorney?

Both the criminal defense and DUI process can be confusing to those who have never had experience in court or with the justice system. An attorneys’ role is to protect your interests and help you make informed decisions both in and outside of court. When you are charged with a crime, the court will assign you an arraignment date as well as a trial date if necessary. The arraignment is where the court will formally read your charges and then require you to enter a plea. Having the assistance of the right attorney before you go to trial can greatly benefit your circumstance. The legal team at The Schneider Law Firm can provide you with the information and representation you need during this stressful time. If you have any additional questions or would like to arrange a consultation with the firm, please feel free to contact the firm today. An attorney will be happy to answer any questions or address your concerns.
