Driving Under the Influence Defense Attorneys in Connecticut
So, youve been arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI). The charge could be called OUI, OWI, drunk driving, driving under the influence, DUI, drinking and driving, operating under the influence, driving while impaired or operating while impaired.
The bad news:
- If you refused or failed your field sobriety or Breathalyzer tests, you will be facing an attempt by DMV to administratively suspend your driving privileges.
- If convicted, you could lose your drivers license for a year or more, go to jail and face heavy fines.
- You could be stuck with increased insurance premiums for many years.
- Any subsequent convictions could lead to extended jail sentences and a lengthy revocation of your license.
