What is a DUI?

Driving under the influence (DUI) is the crime of driving a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol or other drugs. Depending on the state, It can be considered a misdemeanor, felony, or reckless homicide depending on how many DUI’s you’ve had , if someone was injured, or if the victim dies. It’s best to contact an attorney as soon as possible to fight for your rights.

How Long Does a DUI Take?

DUI cases can go one of two ways. The first, pleading guilty, which can take only a few weeks or second, pleading not-guilty, which can take anywhere from six months to a year and a half. Both guilty and not-guilty pleadings are based on average cases and can vary based on how complex your case may be or the area for which you received your DUI.

Things you shouldn’t do when given a DUI:

  • Discuss your case with other inmates (inmates can testify against you if discovered)
  • Discuss any details over the phone while in jail (Phone calls are always recorded and can be used against you)
  • Hire a cheap attorney (may not have enough experience, may charge you throughout the process, or not widely recommended by others)
  • Making statements to police (You have the right to have an attorney present during questioning, and any statements without an attorney can be used against you in the court of law.)
  • Reach out to any victims or families to seek forgiveness (May be used against you before or during trial)
