Protecting Against Drunk Driving Convictions
Driving under the influence (DUI) carries strong consequences in Illinois. If you have been arrested or charged with a DUI, you need experienced legal representation that is ready and willing to make a positive difference in your case. Zuba & Associates, P.C., attorneys have a track record of protecting their clients’ rights while striving for the best outcome.
A first-offense DUI penalty can be up to one year of jail time and up to $2,500 in fines. Additional penalties apply if your BAC is 0.16 or higher. There is always a possibility of vehicle confiscation, and substance abuse assessment and treatment are mandatory. You will lose your driver’s license for one year if you refuse to take a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test.
Convictions Can Add Up
Getting even one DUI on your record means that any additional convictions will pack a more significant punch. While it is possible to get a breath alcohol ignition interlock device after a first DUI offense for restricted driving privileges, a second conviction can get you at least five years of license suspension, and a third can last at least 10 years.
