Nearly everyone knows how seriously
drunk driving offenses are taken under Maryland law. However, what people may not understand
is that many of the same penalties also apply equally to individuals who
are convicted of driving under the influence of drugs (DUID), even prescription
medication. It is imperative to seek legal counsel from an experienced
lawyer in the event of an arrest or charge for DUID.
William R. Hall, am ready to help you obtain the best results possible in the event of
a DUID in Maryland. With more than 20 years of legal experience, I have
successfully handled thousands of cases and understand what it takes to
either get your charges reduced or your entire case dismissed.
What Happens If a Driver is Convicted of Drug Impaired Driving?
According to Maryland law, a person is prohibited from driving or attempting
to drive any vehicle while he or she is impaired by any drug, any combination
of drugs, or a combination of one or more drugs and alcohol. A driver
arrested for DUID will be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) and subject to DUI penalties. Furthermore, a conviction for DUID will
be considered as a prior offense for purposes of determining punishment,
despite whether a subsequent crime derives from alcohol or drugs.
