Inexperienced drinkers and DUI charges

Sometimes, people find themselves charged with driving under the influence multiple times, after being pulled over again as a result of their addiction to alcohol or tendency to drink too much on the weekend. In other instances, however, a person may be accused of operating a vehicle while drunk even though they rarely drink alcohol. In fact, there are a number of reasons why this scenario can be especially challenging for those facing DUI charges and if you have recently been charged with driving drunk even though you are an infrequent drinker, it is extremely important to clearly understand your legal options.

College and DUIs

Drinking is a big part of college life for some students, and this can lead to many issues including being arrested for a DUI. Getting a DUI as a college student can have more consequences than for other settled adults. While the same penalties for a DUI apply, future careers and scholarships may also be at stake.

DUI charges on Labor Day

However, there are some instances when these charges are especially prevalent, such as holidays. With Labor Day around the corner, it is important to be aware of checkpoints and increased attention toward drunk drivers and ensure that you do not get behind the wheel if you are drunk. Unfortunately, many people will find themselves facing these charges, sometimes they may even be innocent. If you are charged with DUI during Labor Day, handling the charges correctly is essential.
