Randy Travis explores different options following DUI charge

When it comes to drunk driving -- whether the person being charged is an adult who is legally old enough to drink or a minor under the age of 21 -- there are some cases where the solution in terms of sentencing really needs to be examined. For example, does it seem like the person being charged has a problem with alcohol? Would that person benefit more from some sort of rehabilitation? Is jail really the answer?

Recently, country music singer Randy Travis was officially charged with driving under the influence. The charge stems from an August incident where he was arrested after being allegedly found naked on the side of the road. Tests later found the singer had a blood alcohol content greater than 0.15 percent.

Going forward, the plan is either for him to plead not guilty or to enter into another plea that would involve some sort of rehabilitation. His attorney claims Travis is currently taking care of some personal matters and understands the situation. He will make a decision on what he wants to do by the end of the month.

For the drunk driving charge, if he is convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of two years and a $4,000 fine. Additionally, since he is currently under investigation for felony retaliation, he could end up facing even more severe consequences.

In general, for the average South Carolina resident reading about this incident, the fact that the chart-topping country music singer is facing these charges goes to show that anyone can end up being charged with drunk driving. In these situations, regardless of who the person is, he or she needs to be able to examine what options may be available.
