Raleigh County DUI Attorney

Preserving Your Legal Rights and Interests

Drinking and driving is a dangerous act with potentially fatal consequences. For the most part, the dangers of drinking and driving are common sense. However, because alcohol overrides a person’s judgment, many who ordinarily possess sound judgment can end up facing charges for a committing the crime of driving under the influence (DUI). DUI charges can be very severe, punishable by hefty legal fines, temporary loss of your driver’s license, and even extensive jail time. Because the stakes are so high in a DUI case, the law recognizes that you are entitled to certain procedural protections as a criminal defendant.

    The dangers inherent with drinking and driving are reflected by the harsh penalties for DUI convictions. A DUI conviction warrants at least six-months incarceration, a $500 fine, and six month suspension of the driver’s license or 140 days with an ignition interlock system installed in their vehicle. These lenient penalties and are reserved for first-time non-aggravated DUIs. If a driver’s BAC was above .15% or they refused the breath machine, ramifications will be more severe.

    Given the ramifications of a DUI conviction, it is important that the proceedings leading up to—and including—trial are consistent with the due process protections the West Virginia and United States constitutions afford criminal defendants.
