An arrest for DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) has implications not only with the court system, but also with the DMV. Even in cases where charges are never filed or where the DUI charge is dismissed, you must still argue before the DMV to avoid the loss of your driver’s license. It is important to remember that you must request a hearing with the DMV within 10 days of your arrest.
When charges are filed in criminal court for a DUI, you can face jail time, large fines, community service, prolonged classes and treatment, mandatory drug testing, installation of ignition interlock devices, and loss of employment. DUI cases can involve many technicalities that can impact the outcome of your case. It is important that you contact an attorney to learn what your rights are and what options you may have to prevent formal charges from being filed, have the case dismissed or reduced, or reduce the sentence imposed. At the Law Office of Justin T. Wayne, LLC, we will diligently defend you in both the court and the DMV hearings.
