Driving While Intoxicated can produce several unfavorable outcomes to include license suspension or revocation, coupled with drastic increases in your motor vehicle insurance premiums. If a defendant is charged and convicted of driving while intoxicated while under the age of 21, the suspension or revocation may last for a far longer period of time than those who commit a similar offense while being over the age of twenty-one (21) years of age.
Conditional or Restricted Licenses:
Dependent upon the charge and the Defendant's prior driving record, a Defendant may be eligible of either a restricted or a conditional licenses. If granted, these limitations may allow a Defendant to drive to and from work or other requirements to include the installation of an ignition interlock device.
Failing a breath, blood or chemical test does not necessarily result in a conviction. Several circumstances may come into play to include the calibration of the machine, the capability of the administrator, the existence of probable cause to direct the test, and the adherence to testing procedures amongst others.
