Birmingham Defense Lawyer Handling DUI Charges
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can lead to serious criminal consequences. Following an arrest, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended for several months, and you have only a limited amount of time to challenge the suspension. You could also face jail time, probation, fines and other penalties.
Under Alabama’s recent aggravated DUI laws, certain types of offenses carry even harsher consequences. Aggravating circumstances include:
- A blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of .15 or greater
- A prior DUI offense on your record
- A minor under age 14 in the vehicle
- An accident involving injury to someone else
A conviction for aggravated DUI can lead to heightened penalties, including a lengthier license suspension and installation of an ignition interlock device.
