Don’t drive drunk and risk spending the holiday in jail

On Behalf of | Dec 2, 2016 | Drunk Driving

Your plans for the holiday probably don’t include sitting in a jail cell, but that is exactly where you might find yourself if you opt to drink and drive. Instead of taking that risk, you should find a safe way to get home if you have been drinking.

We know that there might be instances in which a person is unable to find a safe way home. Since there is a chance that the person will be pulled over by police officers, he or she should be prepared to deal with that situation. You should know about field sobriety tests and blood-alcohol concentration tests, all of which we have previously discussed on this blog. Be sure to read through our previous posts if you want to know more about drunk driving stops.

If you have been charged with drunk driving, you are facing time in jail and the loss of your license. Other penalties might be part of your sentence if you are found guilty. While there isn’t a sure-fire way to have the charges against you dropped, getting your defense together as early in the process as possible might help you to be able to keep the penalties you will have to deal with to a minimum.

We know that you probably have some concerns and questions about your case. We can help you to find the answers that can help you make informed choices as your case moves through the process. We don’t want you to have to throw a defense together on a whim, so be sure that we have ample time to work on your case.
