Were you arrested for Drunk Driving in Connecticut?

What is considered Drunk Driving?

In Connecticut, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If your blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08% or higher, you will be charged with DWI (Driving While Intoxicated). However, you can still be arrested for drunk driving even if your BAC is below .08%.

What are the penalties for Drunk Driving?

The penalties for drunk driving in Connecticut depend on several factors, including your BAC level, whether you have any prior drunk driving convictions, and whether anyone was injured as a result of your intoxicated driving.

For a first offense DWI, you may face up to 6 months in jail, a fine of up to $1,000, and a license suspension of up to 45 days. For a second offense DWI, you may face up to 2 years in jail, a fine of up to $4,000, and a license suspension of up to 45 days. If you are convicted of DWI with a BAC of .16% or higher, you may face up to 3 years in jail, a fine of up to $8,000, and a license suspension of up to 45 days.

Possible defenses to Drunk Driving

There are many ways to defend against a drunk driving charge. For example, we may be able to challenge the stop of your vehicle or the administration of the field sobriety tests. We will thoroughly review the evidence against you to look for any weaknesses that we can exploit.
