DWI/DUI
DWI/DUI
DWI is the criminal offense of Driving While Intoxicated, which is defined as operating a motorized vehicle in a public place with a blood-alcohol concentration in excess of 0.8%. DUI is less specific, meaning that the defendant is accused of being under the influence of some intoxicating substance, usually an illegal drug. The first offense is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a maximum fine of $2,000.00. The second offense is considered a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of up $4,000.00, and all subsequent offenses are treated as felonies. Jail time, driver’s license suspension, and substantial annual fees for three years following conviction of DWI are mandatory. In most cases, a DWI/DUI defendant’s initial contact with law enforcement will be captured by the dashboard-mounted video camera in the police cruiser, the majority of which now produce very high quality DVD recordings. These recordings, in addition to blood-alcohol test results, can be very effective evidence at trial for either the prosecution or the defense. In all cases, the defendant should be polite and remember that the police officer has a job to do. Becoming argumentative or combative in front of a camera will seldom persuade a jury of a defendant’s innocence or sobriety. We handle numerous DWI/DUI cases each year, often in conjunction with other criminal complaints.
