DWI is a serious offense with equally grave consequences. You will be charged if you have at least .08 blood alcohol content or seem to be under the influence of drugs while driving. The resulting penalty can be revocation of your driving license, hefty fines, or imprisonment. The judge’s verdict also depends on whether you are a first or a repeat offender.
These consequences lead to more challenges in your life such as job loss and financial strain. In cases where your license is suspended or revoked, you are forced to find alternative means of transport to move around. Your family also suffers psychologically and financially if you are imprisoned or have to pay a fine. The challenges also go beyond the present because arrest, conviction, and criminal records can cost you future job prospects and lower your credit score.
There is a time limit within which the prosecutor can file charges. In DWI felonies, the statute of limitations is three years, while in misdemeanors, it is two years. When the statute of limitations expires and the prosecution has not filed a charge against you, you still need to expunge arrest records to safeguard your future.
Therefore, the need for a proficient defense attorney cannot be overstated. Jim Butler has, from decades of experience, learned how the prosecution works and the defense tactics necessary to minimize the charges or have them dismissed altogether. What’s more, he understands the loopholes in the system that lead to the conviction of innocent motorists and how to navigate around them. It is important to contact Jim as soon as you are charged with the offense as this increases your chances of getting a desirable outcome. Call him now to discuss your case for free at (713) 236-8744.
