When someone is arrested for a DUI, it begins two processes. The first is an administrative hearing that could result in the loss of a driver’s license. The loss of a driver’s license could cause difficulties for an individual who commutes to work or has family to drive around.
The second is a trial for the criminal charge, which could lead to a conviction and, thus, a sentence. A sentence could have a detrimental effect on a person’s home and professional life as they could be subjected to heavy fines and jail time. However, there are defenses that could help a person avoid these sentences and keep their driver’s license.
A lawyer with The Law Offices of Todd K. Mohink could help you to find the best defense for your case to help you avoid a conviction. For example, a breath test could have been administered improperly, or the officer may not have had probable cause to make the stop in the first place. We can also help you to pursue a plea agreement to reduce any sentences you might find yourself facing.
Also, while traffic violations tend to have less severe sentences than a DUI might, you could still find yourself facing fines and an increase in your insurance rates. Our firm could help those who are facing penalties for speeding, reckless driving, driving without insurance or driving on a suspended license to reduce those penalties as much as possible. Our firm can also work to have a driver’s license reinstated. If you’re interested in more information, please view our page on DUI and traffic violations.
