Loudoun Traffic Defense Lawyer, Clinton O. Middleton, has protected the rights of people charged with DUI and other serious traffic offences for over 30 years.
A DUI, sometimes referred to as a DWI, is certainly the most serious of the traffic offenses. It is a misdemeanor criminal offense. If you have to face the Court on a serious traffic violation such as DWI, you want to stand beside a traffic defense attorney who has successfully defended the charge on hundreds of occasions. Leesburg lawyer, Clinton O. Middleton, has successfully defended DUI and Reckless Driving charges in Fairfax, Loudoun, Clarke, Frederick, and Prince William Counties.
The penalty for just a first offence of DUI/DWI can be mind-blowing. A DUI first offense conviction in Virginia requires the installation of an ignition interlock device, a one-year license suspension, (the Court may issue a restricted license that allows driving only for work, school, etc.), a mandatory minimum fine of $250; and completion of the Alcohol Safety Action Program (ASAP). If the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is 0.08 to 0.14 there is no mandatory jail time, however, there will be a suspended sentence. Any suspended fine and jail sentence is conditioned on completion of all the requirements listed above. If the BAC is 0.15 to 0.19 there is a mandatory 5-day jail sentence. If the BAC is over 0.20 there is a 10-day mandatory sentence. Mandatory time means you will be required to serve it all.
The penalties and consequences increase dramatically for a second or third DUI.
Whether you are charged with a first, second or third DUI/DWI it is wise to consider the services of Clinton O. Middleton. Having a DUI on your record can have a negative impact on your ability to get or keep a job and can have immigration consequences if you are not a U.S. citizen.
