Have You Been Arrested For Drunk Driving?
Being arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence following a few too many beers after work can result in stiff penalties. If this is your first offense, a conviction could mean contending with driver’s license suspension for a minimum of 90 days. You could also be facing a fine up to $5,000 and one year in jail. The court may also order you to attend an education and treatment program.
DUI charges can be issued not only for driving impaired by alcohol, but also for driving under the influence of prescription drugs or marijuana. Speaking with an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible after a DUI arrest is critical to the outcome of your case.
Dan Mellen Attorney at Law has experience on both sides of the courtroom. He knows how the prosecutors will prepare a case against you. He is also well-aware of police misconduct in Washington. You have a right to due process, but law enforcement is known to overstep the boundaries when they stop you without probable cause or do not inform you of your rights.
