If you’ve been charged with a DUI, your first step should be to discuss your charges with a legal professional. Driving under the influence (DUI, also sometimes called DWI or OUI) is one of the most commonly committed crimes in the United States. Unfortunately, because this crime is so common, many people make the mistake of taking their DUI arrests lightly instead of seeking appropriate legal representation. If you’re convicted of DUI, you could end up facing tough penalties such as jail time, loss of driving privileges, fines, or community service. Additionally, your insurance rates can be increased and you may even be ineligible for certain job opportunities due to your conviction.
With so much at stake, it’s a wise idea to enlist the help of an attorney who handles DUI cases. Rutter and Sleeth Law Offices can help you:
• Understand your charges
• Become aware of your rights under the law
