DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE LAW
In South Carolina, if a person is impaired while driving, they can be charged with a DUI or DUAC. These offenses generally include either driving under the influence of alcohol to the extent it impairs your physical and mental faculties, or driving while you have blood alcohol content of .08 or greater regardless of whether the alcohol has had any effect on you. A DUI is a criminal offense while a DUAC is a civil offense.
Convictions for these offenses can have serious impacts on your life including court fines, the suspension of driving privileges, the requirement for mandatory outpatient treatment, and the requirement for expensive high-risk SR-22 insurance.
However, the State has to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and there are many technicalities related to all aspects of the DUI/DUAC arrest starting with whether or not the officer had probable cause to stop you in the first place. If you have been charged with a DUI or DUAC, the Dixon Law Firm, LLC will investigate your case and fight to have your charges reduced or dismissed. For ten years, Roger Dixon has been helping clients get through these difficult cases, and he is ready to help you.
