DUIs are almost always unexpected, as are their potential repercussions. No one ever leaves their house—or the bar, or a restaurant, or a party—with the intention of getting a DUI. In truth, most people who get DUIs would probably tell you that it wasn’t even their intention to drive drunk. It is deceptively easy to miscalculate the amount of alcohol that might show up on a breathalyzer at any given time, and your blood alcohol content may not match how intoxicated you feel.
However, a DUI doesn’t have to be intentional or expected to do real damage in a person’s life. DUI horror stories are unfortunately common. If defendants are not properly represented, the DUI sentencing can be quite harsh. Moreover, a DUI conviction can have effects that ripple throughout a person’s life in many different ways, from employment issues to government program eligibility to custody disadvantages to social stigma.
