Experienced Representation For Complex DUI Cases
The laws regarding driving under the influence of a substance are nuanced and complicated in South Carolina.
In the case of a driving with unlawful concentration of alcohol (DUAC) charge, it is only necessary that a law enforcement official prove that you have an alcohol content of .08 percent or above in your blood stream. A DUAC conviction has significant penalties in terms of license suspension. A first offense is a misdemeanor that results in the loss of driving privileges for more than six months.
In the case of a DUI, in order to be charged with an offense it must be proven that you have a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or above. Ultimately it is critical for a law enforcement official to prove that you were driving and under the influence of a substance and that your driving was significantly impaired.
Every DUI issue is different. Sometimes the ideal approach may require working toward mitigating the charge to a driving violation as opposed to a criminal offense. In other cases, it may be critical to work toward dismissal in jury trial. Regardless of your circumstance, we are ready to put a quarter century of experience to work for you.
