Will I go to jail if I am convicted of drunk driving?
Maryland takes drunk driving offenses very seriously and it is possible that you could go to jail if you are found guilty, even if it is your first offense. Being convicted of drunk driving will impact you for the rest of your life.
I was pulled over for drunk driving and I had a child in the car. Will this impact anything?
Yes, if you are convicted of drunk driving and you had a minor in the car your penalties will be even more severe. Especially if this is the case, you should contact our Maryland drunk driving attorney as soon as possible.
What kind of penalties will I be facing if convicted?
If you are arrested for drunk driving, the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) will suspend your driver’s license immediately, even before you have been convicted of this crime. It is helpful to speak with your attorney immediately following any kind of arrest like this because they can work with the MVA to reverse this license suspension before going to trial. Having an attorney on your side in the early days of being charged can be helpful to keep your life as normal as possible while your attorney works to build your defense.
What other penalties are there?
If you are convicted of drunk driving as a first offense, you may be looking at 12 points on your driver’s license, massive fines, and a year in prison. Though the punishments will vary, a second offense comes with even harsher punishments and you should never hesitate to call your attorney.
