Q: What do I do if I have to take a breathalyzer test?
A: The legal limit is having a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or higher. Unless there is a warrant or a fatality caused by an accident, you do not have to take a breathalyzer test. However, your driving privileges will be revoked for 30 days, and you will be charged with a DUI. It is best to remain calm and respectful of the police officer during this time. We can look at how the officer administered the test and any potential errors they made.
Q: Are there alternatives to jail/license suspension?
A: Based on your case, you may be facing fines, treatment programs and probation. It’s also possible to get an interlock device, which forces you to blow into a breathalyzer before you can start your car. We will work tirelessly toward the best solution for you and your situation.
Q: What does a DUI cost?
A: If this is your first DUI charge, you are facing a fine of up to $1,000. If it is your second offense, you are facing a fine of up to $2,500. A third DUI can result in a fine of up to $5,000. This is why having a knowledgeable attorney is of the utmost importance. Call 405-896-8599 to speak with an attorney who can answer your questions today.
