A conviction of DUI (Driving Under the Influence) can impact your ability to drive freely whenever and wherever you wish to go; it can limit your options for jobs requiring a clean driving record; it means living with the worry that your mistake will come back to haunt you later.
Michael C. Tillotson is a criminal defense attorney who can help lessen the impact of your DUI. Contact him for a no-obligation consultation about your case. Do not face the possible loss of your driver's license or a range of other unforeseen penalties:
• Often a fine of up to $300 is imposed for a first DUI.
• Your license may be revoked for one year.
• ‘Driving school' through the Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program is usually required at a cost of around $300.
• Probation is likely, requiring weekly meetings.
• Community service is often levied against the driver.
All of these punishments are inconvenient and expensive, as well as embarrassing. Try explaining to your employer that you must be out of the office for a meeting with your probation officer or you need time off for driving school or an alcohol assessment program. Extenuating circumstances, such as prior arrests for DUI, transporting a minor, an accident involving injuries or death, or particularly high blood-alcohol content compounds your penalties.
