DUI Charges Deserve a Strong Defense

Let One of Our Indianapolis DUI Attorneys Show You That Your Situation Isn’t Hopeless

The most commonly committed crime in Indiana today is Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated. People who would otherwise never come into contact with the criminal justice system can find themselves under arrest because they have had “one too many.”

The legal limit for Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) while driving in Indiana is .08. This amount can easily be reached with as little as three beers. The penalties for drunk driving in Indiana can be numerous and severe. If you are convicted of this type of offense, you may lose your driving privileges for up to two years. If you have multiple drunk driving convictions, you may be required to serve at least twenty days in the county jail, face felony charges, and can even lose your driving privileges for life.

Don’t Make the Mistake of Hiring a “Read ‘Em and Plead ‘Em” Attorney!

Many people charged with a DUI offense make the mistake of believing that their situation is hopeless and hire attorneys who recommend quick plea agreements. This is the worst thing that you can do for your situation. The consequences of being convicted of a DUI offense if your attorneys aren’t fighting for you are numerous and expensive, and can include:

  • Alcohol Monitoring at a cost of $11.00 per day
  • Carrying High-Risk Insurance for a period of at least three years
  • Ignition Interlock devices that can cost $400.00 or more per month just so you can drive
  • Mandatory substance abuse classes
  • Court costs, fines, and probation costs that can start approaching $2,000.00

The experienced DUI attorneys at Razumich & Associates can help you reduce or even eliminate these penalties.

One Crime, Two Charges

DUI charges in Indiana are divided into two stages: Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated and Operating a Vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Concentration of .08 or more. Both charges require tough attorneys to properly defend you against these accusations.

“Intoxicated” is a legal term that the State needs to prove beyond a reasonable doubt. Several factors can be used to defend against the State’s claim that you were intoxicated, such as your gender, height, weight, and when you last ate. Additionally, legal prescription medications can sometimes cause a “false positive” with the blood alcohol test that makes it seem as though you were intoxicated. There may also be a problem with the way you were stopped, with the way the intoxication tests were administered to you, with the qualifications of the officer administering the test, or even with the equipment used to determine whether you are intoxicated.
