While the legal intoxication level is allocated to each individual state, all fifty states institute a .08% Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) for operating a motor vehicle or personal watercraft. To avoid a DUI, be sure to mind your intake, opt for a designated driver or taxi, and avoid myths about drinking coffee or taking a cold shower in order to sober up before getting behind the wheel.
Common results from drinking and driving cases can include: fines, revocation of a drivers’ license, community service, reform programs and jail time—not to mention the tarnishing of your reputation and military career.
If you have been charged with a DUI, a civilian military lawyer can be your most valuable resource when summoned before a court-martial or military board. Remember, a charge is not the same as a conviction, and with proper military legal counsel, you can have peace of mind in knowing that the facts of your story will be heard and organized in a way that best represents you and your case. If you’ve been arrested for DUI, contact Military Justice Attorneys today.
