Why You Should Fight a DUI Charge

A DUI charge may sound like a minor charge. But it isn't. DUI is a serious criminal offense. In fact it is the most common criminal offense in the United States.


A DUI charge may sound like a minor charge. But it isn't. DUI is a serious criminal offense. In fact it is the most common criminal offense in the United States.

 

Many people tend to think of DUI as a traffic violation. They are wrong. If you are charged with DUI, the biggest mistake you could do is accept the offense and pay the fine. When you accept the offense, it will result in a conviction.

 

A DUI conviction is not a civil fine. It is a criminal conviction that will remain on your record for ever. It will show up every time a background check is done on you.

 

A criminal conviction on your record will have far reaching consequences on your life. You will find it difficult to get a job. No employer would want an employee turning up drunk. Similarly landlords will be reluctant to let you stay on rent. Nobody wants a person with a criminal record staying on their property.

 

While generally most first time DUI offenders are ordered to pay a hefty fine, there is no guarantee that you too will only have to pay a fine. You can be sent to jail.

 

If you have been stopped for DUI, do as the officer asks you to. Once he has stopped you, he has more or less made up his mind to charge you with DUI. Exercise your right to remain silent. When you are taken to the police station, ask that you be permitted to speak to your attorney.
