Are You Currently Facing Charges of Drunken Driving?

Facing DUI charges can be a humiliating and even frightening experience. Law enforcement, the arrest, being booked at the police station and spending time in a holding cell is upsetting for almost anyone. Unfortunately, this is only the beginning of what could be a serious legal problem. A DUI conviction, even the first offense, can result in jail time, fines, suspension of your driver's license, court-ordered community service, and enforced attendance at an alcohol education program. You will likely be on probation for months if you do not go to jail. Should you violate probation, such as failing to pay the fines on time or not completing your program, you could get the full sentence, which in first time DUI cases can be up to a year in jail. It is crucial that you contact a Cherokee County DUI attorney as soon after the arrest as possible.

Don't wait to seek professional legal help from a DUI attorney so that you can fight your charges with the best legal representation possible.
