Question Details:

I was recently arrested for a DUI where I was just barely over the legal limit. Just to be clear, I know that “just barely over” is still over the limit and I recognize that I made a huge mistake. My question is whether the judge will look at my past record (or lack of) and will that factor into the prosecution process? I have never been arrested for anything in my entire life and I’m in my early 50’s. I would like to just put this behind me as quickly as possible, show that I’m sorry, and move on with my life.

Family Law Attorney Response:

This is a really good question and I can tell that you truly are remorseful for what you did. In the little bit that I know about you, I can tell that you are a good person and that will likely show in the court room in front of the judge as well.

The short answer to your question is no.

DUI/DWI laws should not change based on your past and everybody should be tried equally. Don’t be discouraged, there still is a chance that you can beat the charge or strike a plea bargain.

But in order to do any of that, you’ll need to hire a great DUI attorney. Your record won’t speak for itself and you’ll need to hire great representation with experience in the DUI field and a winning record in the court room.
