Also known as Drinking and Driving, or Impaired Driving; it means that a person is charged with driving a motor vehicle while impaired by Alcohol or Drugs. It is one of the most commonly litigated areas of criminal law but also one of the most defensible.
A person may not feel impaired or act impaired but if pulled over by the police they may be asked to provide a breath or blood sample. If that sample indicates a blood alcohol level above 80 milligrams per 100 milliliters of blood then that person will be charged with Driving Over 80 and Impaired Driving. If a person refuses to provide a sample, you may also be charged with a Refusal Charge.
There are various ways to defend a DUI case and the Criminal Defense lawyers at Connolly & Associates have several years of experience doing that with a successful outcome.
