Lexington DUI Defense Attorneys

We Fight to Protect Your Rights & Freedom

One of the most common charges of a criminal offense in the Commonwealth of Kentucky is that of drunk driving. Being accused of DUI can have damaging consequences for the rest of your life, as well as the lives of your loved ones, if you do not get a strong defense.

The trial process is complex and stressful, but the long-term penalties which come from the conviction are very severe. You could serve time in jail, be forced to pay huge fines, and lose your driving license. Not only does an arrest bring shame and embarrassment, but the allegation can also cause you to lose your job and your reputation, putting even more financial and emotional agony on your family.

Our Lexington criminal defense attorneys at Landon Law are extremely knowledgeable about Kentucky driving laws and can clearly explain your rights. We can also compose a strong strategy to help you succeed in fighting the unfair charges against you. We can handle your case with absolute empathy and aggressive dedication.

Penalties for Driving Under the Influence

In the state of Kentucky, no adult driver can be operating a motorized vehicle if they have more than .08 % of alcohol in their blood. Drivers who are under the age of 21 and thus count as minors cannot have any more than .02% of alcohol in their blood. If you have been accused of any of these characteristics, two of the primary penalties include jail time and high fines. The amounts of both categories greatly depend on whether this is your first, second, or third offense.

The breakdown of some penalties for degrees of severity is designated as:

  • First offense – You could face 48 hours to 30 days in jail and pay a fine of $200-$500, dependent on the judge’s decision, and a mandatory $375 service fee
  • Second offense – You could face up to six months in jail and pay a fine of $350-$500, and a mandatory $375 service fee
  • Third offense – You could serve up to one year and jail and pay a fine of $500-$1000, and a mandatory $375 service fee

In addition to these fines, you can also be forced to pay more subtle costs, such as your bail or your insurance company. You may often have your driving license suspended, which greatly restricts your ability to get to work or school.

Fighting a DUI Conviction

Being charged with drunk driving can seem like a hopeless situation, since so often courts tend to take the side of the state. In reality, however, there are many situations where the defendant is a victim, especially when the authorities making the accusation are found to be in error.

Get Reliable Help

A charge of driving under the influence can be a complicated matter. The evidence may initially point to one scenario, but a deeper examination of potentially proper arrests on account of the police, or the unfortunate case that you have a prior medical condition that made it look like you were under the influence of alcohol. Our experienced criminal defense lawyers at Landon Law are ready to defend your case no matter what.
