DUI/DWI & Traffic Offenses

DUI/DWI & Traffic Offenses

In Virginia, charges of driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) are the same. The consequences for a first offense DUI can be devastating. Those penalties may include the following:

  • Administrative license suspension for 7 days
  • Minimum $250 fine
  • License revocation for 1 year
  • Any court-ordered restitution
  • Participation in the Alcohol Safety Action Program (ASAP)
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device
  • A criminal record

The mandatory minimum punishments increase if certain enhancements apply, such as, a BAC of 0.15% or higher or a prior DUI conviction. These enhancements could include mandatory imprisonment.

With so much at stake, you need the services of a skilled DUI/DWI attorney. There are defenses that can be raised, and you may have been falsely charged.
