Lindstrom DUI Defense Lawyers
While some people do not take a DUI seriously, deeming it to be a “common” or somehow less-than-serious offense, it is important to realize that failure to take such a charge seriously can have long-term effects on your ability to drive and your career.
In fact, immediately pleading guilty can cost substantially more than partnering with an attorney — even if the charge is not dismissed.
In Minnesota, a conviction will result in thousands of dollars depending on the degree with which the charge is brought (itself a reflection of aggravating factors). This is in addition to the long-term spike in insurance rates and the points on your driving record. Depending on the situation, the DUI may even be charged as a felony.
Additionally, because of Minnesota’s implied consent laws, if you refuse to take the breath test, your license will be revoked and your charges will be amplified. Depending on the circumstances surrounding a refusal, your license may be revoked for a year.
Because of the seriousness of the penalties surrounding drunk driving charges, it is important to reach out to a skilled law firm as soon as possible.
