DWI Consequences in Maryland
FREE DWI Evaluation: (410) 205-1684
If you or someone you care about has been arrested for
DWI and are facing serious consequences, you should have a Salisbury DWI lawyer
on your side. Even a first-time offense should be taken seriously. Many
judges will give jail time to DWI offenders, regardless of the level of
BAC at the time of the arrest or any prior criminal history. However,
other judges choose to give first-time offenders a chance for rehabilitation.
In order to adequately protect your driving privileges and record, turn to me,
Attorney William R. Hall, for strong, aggressive legal
defense. I have
more than 15 years of experience practicing law in our local courts. I know how the local courts work and
how drunk driving cases are handled by law enforcement. I am ready to
use this knowledge and experience to my clients' advantage.

Penalties for DWI
A blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher or a positive drug test
can lead to a conviction of DWI. The penalties for DWI can also vary depending
on the circumstances involved, and the ability of your attorney. When
you get a Salisbury DWI attorney involved early on, you may be able to
minimize the penalties and consequences.
If you are found guilty of a first-time DUI in Maryland, you could face
- 12 points on your license
- A one-year license suspension
- Up to a $1,000 fine
- Jail time
- Ignition interlock device
If you have a prior conviction, you can face more severe penalties, including
longer jail time, longer license suspension, and may be required to pay
more for high-risk auto insurance coverage. Those facing subsequent offenses
may also not qualify for probation. You could also face other repercussions,
such as losing your job.
