Possible Penalties for Drunk Driving Charges
A conviction for a DWI/DUI can involve serious consequences on your life. Drunk driving penalties can be severe. Before deciding whether to plead guilty or build a defensive case, there are some important things that one should consider. A conviction for a DWI/DUI is a criminal conviction that stays forever on a person’s criminal record along with other repercussions such as:
- Increase in automobile insurance premiums (usually 5 years in many cases)
- Loss or suspension of driver’s license
- Loss of employment
- Treatments for substance abuse
- Ignition interlock devices
- Implications for job opportunities (some employers will not hire those who have drunk driving convictions)
- If in school, possible school disciplinary action
- Possibility of multiple offense sanctions if convicted more than once
One should make their decision if they want to fight their case or plead guilty only after carefully evaluating all possible consequences that can arise from a DUI/DWI conviction.
