Drunk Driving Charges Should Not Be Taken Lightly
Many people recognize that driving drunk was a mistake, which they wish to put behind them as quickly as possible. However, pleading guilty to a DWI/DUI charge without mounting a defense can have a significant impact on your life. A first offense carries fines of up to $2,000, a potential jail sentence of 180 days, and suspension of your driver’s license for up to one year, among other penalties. The consequences become more severe if this is not your first offense and may even result in felony criminal charges.
You are innocent until proven guilty, and you have the right to defend yourself against these charges. Sylvia Escobedo will thoroughly review the evidence against you and ask the questions needed to establish your defense. Was the breath test properly performed? Was the officer conducting the test properly trained? Was there probable cause to make a traffic stop, to begin with? You can rest assured that attorney Escobedo will work hard to get your charges dismissed or reduced to a lesser charge that will lessen the potential consequences.
