Hoover DUI Lawyer
Alabama lawmakers have passed strict laws and regulations regarding drunk driving. Even for a first offense, you could be sentenced to up to one year in jail, a mandatory substance abuse program, a 90-day driver’s license suspension, and between $600 and $2100 in fines. Those with a prior DUI conviction within the last five years could face increased mandatory jail time, expensive fines, a lengthier license suspension, and the installation of an ignition interlock device.
Did you know that your driver’s license may be automatically suspended after your DUI arrest? It’s true—if you do not request an administrative hearing within 10 days of you arrest, your license may suspended for a minimum of 90 days and a maximum of 5 years, depending on the circumstances of your case. This license suspension is entirely separate from your criminal case.
You may also face additional non-legal problems. After your DUI conviction shows up on your driving record, your insurance rates may be raised or your insurance provider could decide that you are too much of a risk and cancel your policy. If your employer requires a clean criminal and driving record, you could even be terminated.
