Fairfield County, Connecticut Multiple DUI Defense Attorneys Assist Clients Minimize DUI Charges
The legal limit in the state of Connecticut for the amount of intoxicating influences you can have in your system while driving is quite low in order to prevent unfortunate accidents. As a result, you may have inadvertently gotten behind the wheel without realizing that you were over the state limit. If you were pulled over and have been charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol in the state of Connecticut, you may suffer some heavy consequences. However, these consequences become more severe if you have previously been convicted of the same charge within the last 10 years. If this is the case, you may face serious jail time, costly fines, and the suspension, temporary or permanent, of your driver's license.
