Addressing DUI & License Suspension Cases
One of the most well-known penalties that results from
DUI is the suspension of your driver's license. If you are pulled over
by law enforcement and either refuse to submit to a breathalyzer test
or fail one, your license will be immediately suspended. After this, if
you are convicted of a DUI, you may also face additional license suspension time.
The right to drive a motor vehicle is often taken for granted until this
right is taken away. You need to be able to drive your automobile to go
to and from work, perform the functions of your job, take your children
to school, and do other daily activities. If you are facing the possibility
of a license suspension, our Connecticut criminal defense attorneys at
Tomeo Sills, LLC can take on your case and fight to either reduce the
suspension time or retain your driving privileges altogether.

What are the Penalties of a License Suspension?
The following are the license suspension penalties you face for a first-time offense:
- 90-day suspension for failing a breathalyzer test with a BAC between .08 and .16
- 120-day suspension for failing a breathalyzer test with a BAC over .16
- 6-month suspension for refusing to submit to a breathalyzer test
- 90-day suspension for being under 21 years of age and failing a breathalyzer
test with a BAC over .02
Aside from the license suspensions for first-time offenses or refusals,
repeat offenders or refusers are subjected to increased suspension times.
These consequences will impact your insurance rates, ability to retain
employment, and the everyday functions of normal life.
