Hartford DUI Defense Attorneys
Fighting to Save Your Driving Privileges – 844.913.7747
The highway patrol officers of Connecticut are notorious for seeking out
anyone who might have a hint of alcohol in their systems and pulling them
over to secure a driving under the influence (DUI) arrest. The legal limit
for civilian drivers is a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or
greater, but some DUI arrests can be made even when the BAC count is lower.
No matter the reported BAC of the driver, it is possible that their driver’s
license will be automatically suspended just days after the arrest. Action
must be taken to stop it.

Possible Penalties for a DUI Arrest & Conviction
A single DUI conviction in Connecticut can bring about severe penalties.
When deciding upon punishments, the criminal justice system will examine
your past criminal and driving record. Any convictions for other DUIs,
or possibly even vehicle-related crimes, could massively escalate the
penalties you face if convicted again. The top priority of our Hartford
DUI defense attorneys at Tomeo Sills, LLC is doing everything in our power
to reduce or eliminate your charges or sentencing.
A typical DUI conviction can include these penalties and more:
- License suspension
- High fines
- Lengthy jail time
- Many hours of community service
- Mandatory ignition interlock device (IID)
As mentioned previously, there are situations in which the Connecticut
Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can suspend your license before you
are even convicted. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, merely
the act of being arrested for a suspected DUI can trigger an administrative
per se suspension. If this is the case, you have just
7 days to contact the DMV and request a hearing, during which you can challenge
the automatic suspension of your license. Failure to do so will trigger
the suspension 30 days after your arrest, regardless of any ongoing or
concluded criminal proceedings. Urgency is crucial if you want to hold
onto your freedoms.
