Additional Charges in DUI Cases

A DUI charge can have serious consequences, including jail or prison time, heavy fines, revocation of your driver’s license, probation, court-ordered alcohol classes, and a permanent mark on your record. It is important to get legal representation as soon as possible.

DUI driving violations can include additional charges, such as:

  • Vehicular and gross vehicular manslaughter: This involves a death due to reckless driving, drunk driving, or gross negligence.
  • Hit and run: This occurs when a driver intentionally failed to stop and identify themselves at the scene of an accident.
  • Driving without a license: This is a relatively minor offense but a conviction will still go on your criminal record.
  • Driving with a suspended or revoked license: If convicted, you could be facing serious driving restrictions.
  • Negligence: This is considered any time when you do not use reasonable care or exercise caution to prevent foreseeable harm.
  • Gross negligence: When you consciously and voluntarily disregard the need to use reasonable care to prevent injury.

Any driving offense, from a first-time DUI to a felony DUI or underage DUI, can lead to serious consequences. The Law Offices of Mark Girdner provides friendly service and knowledgeable representation so you can get the legal assistance you need to defend you in court.
