Attorney Randall E. Reagan is experienced and qualified in representing criminal defendants at trial and on appeal in both State and Federal Courts.
Driving, or being in physical control of, a motor vehicle in a public place while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a violation of the DUI statute.
DUI, It is a Serious Offense.
A first DUI conviction can result in a jail term of at least 48 hours, up to 11 months and 29 days and you can be fined from $350.00 to $1,500.00. You will lose your driver’s license for one year. You may also be required to perform public service work in addition to these penalties. Subsequent offenses may result in more serious punishment. A fourth or subsequent DUI conviction is a felony and can result in a prison term of up to six years and a $10,000.00 fine.
A restricted driver’s license can be issued if you have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle. A conviction for a third or subsequent offense of DUI may result in the forfeiture of the vehicle used in the commission of the offense.
If arrested for DUI, you will be asked to take a blood or breath alcohol test. You have the right to refuse the test, however, your refusal could cause you to lose your driver’s license for one year, and, the fact that you refused can be used as evidence against you at trial.
If you are arrested for driving under the influence, you should consult a lawyer experienced in handling DUI cases. Even if the blood or breath test indicates the presence of intoxicants, there may be a legal basis to exclude the test results from evidence.
