Hartford DUI Lawyers
Connecticut Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys
If you have been charged with Driving under the Influence (DUI), of either alcohol or drugs (legal or not) it is extremely important that you immediately contact a drunk driving lawyer. In Connecticut, after you have been charged with DUI you have a right to an administrative hearing before the Department of Motor Vehicles before your driving privileges are suspended. You must request a hearing from the DMV, usually within 10 days of the charges or else your license will be automatically suspended. You will also be subject to court fines and mandatory jail time.
Under Connecticut law, operating a motor vehicle is illegal if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is over 0.08 or if you are under the influence of any drugs (legal or not), which could impair you ability to operate a vehicle. If you are a repeat DUI offender, the subsequent charge does not allow a BAC over 0.07. The state allows individuals that successfully participate in the Connecticut Alcohol Education Program to wipe their permanent record clean of a DUI offense. This is allowed 1 time every 10 years so long as there are no intervening DUI convictions.
