The consequences of a DUI here in the State of Indiana begin well before
there's ever a conviction. People's jobs are lost. People are
put in jail or they're detained in their homes well before they're
ever convicted. It's always important to make sure that all of those
rights are properly defended, that a person isn't placed on any sort
of monitoring or any sort of suspension is occurring if the law doesn't allow it.
Then you reach a conviction potentially, where a person can be looking
at anything for a misdemeanor up to a year in jail. But if someone has
prior convictions, that person could serve up to nine years in jail for
a DUI. The consequences of a DUI, it can be life-changing. Once the conviction
occurs it can only spiral deeper. Making sure that you have appropriate
attorneys there to defend you, hold the state to its burden, protect your
rights and your privileges, such as driving in the state of Indiana is
of the utmost importance.
