Police will be looking for drunk drivers over the holidays

Summer is here, and the Fourth of July is less than a week away. Americans throughout the country, including those from Leedsburg, Virginia and the surrounding area, often celebrate the summer holiday by attending parades, fireworks displays and often barbeques and picnics with family and friends. It is not uncommon during barbeques to indulge in a few hotdogs, hamburgers and one's favorite alcoholic beverages.

Can breath test results be found inadmissiable at a DUI trial?

Many drunk driving arrests begin as traffic stops, with a police officer pulling over a car for reasons such as erratic driving or observed violations of one or more traffic laws. In a recent example, however, an alleged drunk driver brought the attention on himself.

Does a first DUI offense result in jail time?

In Virginia, the penalties for a first-time conviction for driving under the influence vary based upon the time period and the blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The legal limit is a BAC level of 0.08 percent, and additional jail time is imposed for levels above 0.15 and 0.20 percent.

Should you cooperate with police during a drunk driving stop?

With authorities stepping up enforcement efforts in Northern Virginia and across the state, a refresher on a driver's civil rights during a traffic stop may be in order. There are certain constitutional rights that every driver has, pursuant to the Fourth Amendment. Our criminal defense law firm is well acquainted with these rights because we focus on criminal law and drunk driving defense.

Take two, drive and call your lawyer in the morning

As we have pointed out time and again on our blog, driving while intoxicated is considered a serious crime here in Virginia. Most people not only find an arrest embarrassing, it can also lead to serious charges that could lead to jail time, steep fines and the possibility of losing your license.
