Arrested & Not Sure What Happens Next? Our Connecticut DUI Lawyers Explain.
After being stopped for DUI, the process generally consists of the following steps:
- The driver is taken to the local police department
- The driver is booked and read his or her Miranda rights
- The driver is given the opportunity to call an attorney
- The driver is read the implied consent advisory to submit to breath, blood
or urine tests.
- The driver takes the tests and the results are reported
- The driver is released on the promise that he or she will appear in court
We strongly recommend against refusing to take a breath test so that you
can obtain a permit to drive to work and increase the likelihood of a
more favorable outcome. Refusing to take the test can lead to a six-month
license suspension. If you are a first-time offender or refused to take
a breath test, you may be able to complete an Alcohol Education Program
that will allow you to get your charges dismissed.
What Are the Penalties?
The penalties for DUI are very serious and become even harsher for repeat
DUI offenders. Other factors that can determine the penalties you face
include whether an accident was caused or if anyone was injured. Our Connecticut
DUI attorneys will work tirelessly to shield you from the various penalties
you may face.
DUI can lead to the following penalties:
- License suspension
- A jail sentence
- Community service
- Ignition interlock device
