Alcohol Limits And Consequences
The blood alcohol content (BAC) limit is .08 percent, with additional penalties if your BAC is .15 percent or higher. If you refuse a breath test at a police traffic stop, your license will be automatically revoked for 180 days. If there is a child in your vehicle at the time of arrest, your fine and jail time will be dramatically increased.
DWI And Drug Use
A DWI does not only apply to alcohol use; you can be charged with DWI for being under the influence of either prescription or illegal drugs while operating a vehicle. Consequences for a first time DWI-drugs offense include:
- Jail time of 3 to 180 days
- Revoked driver’s license for up to a year
- An annual payment of $1,000 to $2,000 to keep your driver’s license in good standing once reinstated
Partnering With You Throughout Your Defense
Josh will partner with you to develop a tailored defense strategy given the unique factors of your situation. We always aim to secure the best outcome given your circumstances.
It is especially crucial to work with a capable lawyer if you face multiple DWI charges. With each subsequent offense, you face increasingly severe penalties. In addition to a longer jail sentence, you could face:
- An alcohol or drug assessment, education and treatment program
- Installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle
- Confiscation of your vehicle
