OAK HARBOR DUI HELP
Following an arrest for driving under the influence in Island County Washington, you will actually be facing two separate and distinct cases. The first is the criminal charge that is resolved in the courts, namely Island County District Court. The other is a civil case brought by the Department of Licensing that seeks to suspend your driving privilege. While these are two very separate cases, the Island County DUI Attorneys at The Law Firm of David N. Jolly can help you with both. In fact, the chances of keeping your driving privileges are better with legal representation.
A license suspension for DUI can exceed a year, even for a first time defendant. In fact, if you refused the breath or blood test and are convicted you are facing a 2-year suspension of your license. The actual duration depends on a number of factors, and having any prior DUI convictions or an elevated Blood Alcohol Content at the time of arrest will increase the suspension period.
Following your release from custody after your arrest for DUI you must complete and mail the application for the DOL for an Administrative Hearing. You must, however, make the request within 20 days of your arrest or you will automatically lose your driving privileges.
The Island County DUI Lawyers at The Law Firm of David N. Jolly can represent you at the DOL hearing and take care of the preparation prior to the hearing and the hearing itself. It's very important to act immediately following your arrest to maintain the right to appeal the suspension of your driver's license.
Even a first offense for drunk driving in Island County WA can lead to significant fines and court fees, community service, jail, probation, significantly higher auto insurance premiums and loss of driving privileges.
