Columbia DUI Penalties Defense Attorney

What is the Penalty for DUI in South Carolina?

An DUI arrest can come with up to $1k in fines and/or up to 90 days in jail along with up to a 6 month licenses suspension. Recovery of your driving privileges can take time and relying on others or on public transportation after losing your license can cause inconvenience and additional costs. Additionally, if you’re convicted of a DUI following an accident you may be liable to additional criminal charges and lawsuits.

No one intends to get arrested for drunk driving, but sometimes a simple good time with friends can result in an arrest that threatens your future and livelihood. The penalties for DUI can be severe in South Carolina. The loss of your license and a conviction that appears on your background check can drastically affect your employment opportunities. We are experienced in handling drunk driving and traffic violation cases and can advise you about your rights and options.

What are the Penalties for Repeat Drunk Driving Offenses in South Carolina?

The law holds severe penalties for repeat drunk driving offenders. However, the law is constantly changing as it pertains to DUI offenses and penalties. The Law Office of Marion M. Moses, LLC, continues to stay informed of current legislation and changing laws.

If you have been convicted of DUI in the past and are facing an additional charge, consulting with The Law Offices of Marion M. Moses, LLC, is in your best interest. We are experienced at defending clients accused of drunk driving and work hard to keep your record clean.

Dealing with License Suspension

Your driver license can be suspended following a DUI or drunk driving arrest, even if you have not yet had a hearing. A refusal to take a requested Breathalyzer® test results in an automatic suspension of your license. In many cases, we can help you recover your license prior to having to serve the full suspension period. Attorney Moses is experienced with handling DUI cases and can help determine if the circumstances of your case may justify early license recovery. Driver license suspension issues are time sensitive from the date of an arrest. If the suspension is not challenged within the appropriate amount of time, the ability to challenge the suspension may be lost.

Do not let severe DUI penalties threaten your future and your livelihood. At The Law Offices of Marion M. Moses, LLC, we help our clients deal with these serious charges and avoid high penalties. Contact us online today or call us at 803-770-4483 to schedule a free consultation about your case.
