Potential DWI/DUI Consequences in Maryland
Fines & Fees
DUI sentencing begins at a minimum $500 fine not including other fees incurred throughout the process, probationary fees, and other costs. These costs can hinder bill pay, take away from expenses for children and home, and impede saving for the future. Fines and fees are very case-dependent but a knowledgeable DUI lawyer will be able to anticipate what may be incurred and try to help lower this number.
Suspension & Revocation
It is not uncommon for courts to suspend or revoke a driver’s license following a DUI arrest. This can be a huge problem for many people, as it impedes transportation to work and school, taking children and dependents where they need to be, and taking care of life’s necessities. The demands of life cause many people to drive on a suspended license or drive without valid licensure which can incur negative consequences for the driver.
In Maryland, any DUI/DWI arrest made on a driver whose Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) was .15 or higher at the time of arrest will be required to take a breathalyzer test via the Ignition Interlock Device (IID) to operate his or her vehicle for a designated period of months.
DUI charges can and do incur jail time, especially in cases such as child endangerment, negligence, or repeat DUI offense. Jail time is never a good experience and can cause individuals to lose employment, become delinquent in bill-pay and generally lose their handle on life’s responsibilities.
