Personalized Defense Against Severe Drunk Driving Charges
Although driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI) and operating while intoxicated (OWI) are three of the most common criminal offenses in Indiana, you should not underestimate their severity. One of the most common mistakes people make when charged with DUI or DWI is ignoring the matter and hoping it resolves itself.
At Luisa White Law, LLC, we have spent years defending people in Tippecanoe County and the surrounding communities from misdemeanor and felony criminal offenses. With a combination of experience, professionalism and personal service, we are ready to fight for a favorable outcome to your impaired driving case.
What Are The Penalties For DUI And DWI?
The state takes drunk and drugged driving very seriously and will not hesitate to impose harsh penalties – especially if you have a prior offense on your record. Some of the criminal consequences can include:
- Fines of up to $10,000
- Driver’s license suspension or revocation
- Points added to your license
- Community service
- Installation of an ignition interlock device
- Jail time of up to 12 years
The more drunk driving offenses you have on your record, the more severe the penalties. For drivers under age 21 or juvenile offenders, driving intoxicated can have even stricter consequences and ruin one’s academic career.
Protecting Your Rights With Your Children
A conviction can also cause you to lose precious time with your children if you share custody and parenting time with your ex. Some family law judges consider it dangerous for a child to spend time unsupervised with someone who has a drunk driving conviction, especially if their time together involves driving. Because we also practice family law, we understand custody laws and will help you protect your parental rights.
