How We Can Help
The right legal counsel can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. During your free case evaluation with one of our Waldorf DUI defense lawyers, we will ask you to provide answers to a few questions that may help us build your defense.
We might ask you:
- What you were doing prior to your arrest
- How much alcohol you consumed prior to your arrest
- The results of your breath test
- Whether there were any witnesses present during your breath or blood test
- Whether or not the officer read your Miranda rights before interrogation
With the information you provide and our own exhaustive investigations, we can craft an effective defense strategy tailored to your unique situation.
How First-Time DUI Offenders May Reduce Their Penalties
If it becomes clear that there is no way to fight the charges, it may become necessary to work out a plea deal or request alternative sentencing. Alternative sentencing is available to first-time offenders whose actions did not injure or harm anyone. The purpose of alternative sentencing is to order the victim to get help instead of sending him or her to jail.
Typically, a first-time DUI offender interested in avoiding jail time may have to accept responsibility for the incident and enroll in an alcohol education program. Attending alcohol treatment programs is a good first step to recovery and it could lighten the penalties against the defendant. Additionally, community service may be a valid sentence instead of incarceration. This option is not always available, but in victimless crimes involving first-time offenders, the court may be willing to negotiate a deal. In some circumstances, it may even be possible to keep the charges off a driver’s record.
Anyone charged with a DUI would be well-advised to discuss all of his or her potential options with the experienced Waldorf DUI defense attorneys at Alpert Schreyer Poe.
