Being convicted of DUI can seriously affect your life and your future. A DUI conviction can result in jail time as well as the loss of driving privileges. Heavy fines and court costs are a direct consequence of a DUI conviction, as well as driver license suspension or revocation. If convicted of a DUI offense, the cost of your automobile insurance premium will be greatly increased or the coverage cancelled altogether. In addition, under Alabama's new ignition interlock law, you will be be required to install an ignition interlock device after certain "first offense" convictions and all second and subsequent convictions. In many cases, a suspended or revoked driver license as a result of a DUI conviction will result in job termination. A DUI conviction can also result in the denial of a government job or obtaining a government security clearance.
You need to retain a knowledgeable and aggressive DUI lawyer in any DUI related arrest. Although pleading guilty may seem like the least expensive way of handling a DUI, the long-term consequences of such a decision will be very serious. You need to weigh the long term impact of such a decision carefully with the advice of an experienced attorney skilled in DUI practice.
