Why fight it?
One of the main reasons you should challenge a DUI is because of the serious nature of the penalties. A DUI conviction carries with it the possibility of jail time, steep fines and the loss of driving privileges. With the help of Cory Easton, all aspects of your DUI charge will be scrutinized so that your rights will be protected. You cannot afford a DUI conviction because:
- you can receive jail time or either Alternative Housing or Intermediate Punishment (House Arrest with an ankle bracelet) at your expense;
- your driver's license can be suspended from thirty (30) days to eighteen (18) months;
- your car insurance rates WILL rise or your coverage may be canceled;
- the average out-of-pocket cost for a DUI conviction is between $1,500 and $5000;
- you may be required to have an Interlock Ignition switch installed in your vehicle at your own expense; and,
- you could lose your job due to any of the above.
The Traditional DUI Stop, What to Expect!
To execute a traditional DUI traffic stop (other than those made at a DUI checkpoint), a police officer must have a reasonable suspicion that you have committed some violation of the Motor Vehicle Code, usually for a moving violation or because your vehicle is not up to code.
From the moment the officer initiates the stop, he or she is observing your actions to determine if you are intoxicated. The officer will be observing and scrutinizing odors coming from the vehicle, your speech, your attitude, clothing, the conduct of passengers as well as other physical evidence to make his initial determination of whether or not to proceed further with his DUI investigation. If ordered out of your vehicle, the officer may employ several field sobriety tests to determine if you are intoxicated. These tests include the walk and turn, the one leg stand and various other counting or alphabet tests. If the officer finds that there is probable cause to believe that you are under the influence, you most likely will be arrested and taken for either a blood or breath test to determine your exact blood alcohol level.
In the event your blood alcohol level exceeds 0.08% or if the office simply believes, based on his observations, that you were incapable of safely operating your vehicle, you will charged with a DUI and most likely multiple other criminal and / or vehicular charges. At this point it is imperative that you immediately contact an attorney. Darren DeUrso is available 24 hours a day and can be reached at 914.772.8614 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
