Under Indiana law, an individual can be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or operating while intoxicated (OWI). To be charged with these crimes, the individual must be over the age of 18 and have a blood alcohol content (BAC) equal to or greater than 0.08% or prove by their actions that they are intoxicated.
A DUI has consequences that reach far beyond the immediate legal repercussions. There’s a social stigma attached to having a DUI that can affect your relationships and career; indeed, it can change your entire future. That’s why it’s so important to have a strong defense.
DUI charges can affect your relationships, your career, and your future. Call Leeman Law today for a Logansport DUI lawyer that can help you.
If you’re operating a motor vehicle in Indiana, you have given your “implied consent” to be searched or tested by an officer of the law who has cause to believe that you’re operating your vehicle while intoxicated, or that you were involved in an accident. Whether you accepted or refused these tests, it’s essential that you retain a lawyer as quickly as possible so that they can start building a defense for you.
Some consequences of refusing a portable breath test (PBT) or other chemical test include:
- Driver’s license suspension
- Ineligibility to obtain specialized driving privileges
- Ineligibility to have your driver’s license reinstated even if you are found innocent of the charges against you
- Conviction of an infraction
- The refusal may be used as evidence against you during your case
