DUI Charges - Driving Under the Influence of Drugs and/or Alcohol
A conviction for driving a motor vehicle under the influence (DUI) can result in significant consequences such as:
- large fines,
- loss of your driver's license,
- loss of your job, and/or
- jail time.
Additionally, in some jurisdictions, multiple DUI convictions can result in a lifetime driving suspension.
