Consequences of DUI Conviction

DUI or Driving Under the Influence is a serious offense. It is referred to as DWI or Driving While Intoxicated in some states.


DUI or Driving Under the Influence is a serious offense. It is referred to as DWI or Driving While Intoxicated in some states. If you have been charged with DUI or DWI, hire an experienced attorney to defend the charges against you.

 

You may think it is cheaper to plead guilty than hire an attorney to defend the charges against you. But it isn’t. When you plead guilty to a DUI or DWI charge, it does not mean that the judge will only ask you to pay a fine. The judge can also imprison you even if it is your first offense. Your liberty is at stake. Don’t take chances.

 

If you are convicted for DUI and asked to pay a fine, the consequences do not end there. While the fine is the legal penalty you have to pay for the offense, there are other consequences of a DUI conviction. A DUI conviction will appear on your record. If you are subsequently arrested for any offense including DUI, the judge will consider your record while determining your sentence. A prior conviction generally results in enhanced penalties.

 

You ability to travel across the world can be severely affected by a DUI conviction. Many counties including Canada impose travel restrictions on persons convicted of DUI. You may be turned back from the border post.

 

Another consequence of a DUI conviction is the impact it has on the insurance rates. Insurance companies consider drivers with a DUI record as high risk. You will have to pay higher premiums.
