The first thing you need to worry about after being arrested for driving under the influence is losing your driving privileges. After an arrest for a first offense, this suspension will last for seven days. For a second DUI offense, the suspension will last for 60 days or until you go to trial, whichever comes first. For a third DUI offense, your license will be suspended until you go to trial. Keep in mind, your license will be suspended whether or not you are found guilty in criminal court.
It is very important that you do not drive your vehicle while your license is suspended. If you are caught driving on a license that has been suspended for an alcohol-related offense, your vehicle can be impounded or immobilized for 90 days. The court may order that your vehicle be impounded for an additional 90 days if you are convicted of DUI.
You will also face additional penalties in criminal court. If this is your first offense, you are looking at up to a year in jail, fines starting at $250, and a 12-month license suspension.
To avoid these penalties, you need an attorney who is on your side and knows the DUI laws and court procedures in Virginia Beach inside and out. Michael C. Tillotson is that attorney.
