Understanding the Charges Against You

Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and drugs is a danger not only to the driver and their passengers, but to anyone else sharing the roads. That is why the commonwealth of Virginia has very strict and harsh laws regarding the punishment of DUI offenders.

Anyone who is found to be driving with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher can be arrested for driving under the influence. If you are under 21, however, you can be arrested for a BAC of 0.02% or higher since Virginia is a "zero tolerance" state.

Penalties for DUI in Virginia

For a first DUI offense, an offender is facing:

The penalties dramatically increase for second or subsequent convictions, depending on the time that has elapsed since your prior conviction, with subsequent offense convictions carrying an increasing range of mandatory minimum time as the number of offenses increases.

Additionally, if your blood-alcohol level is over 0.15 or 0.20, there are separate mandatory jail sentences upon conviction. Once a defendant is charged with a third offense DUI, the charge becomes a felony.

DUI Defense Strategies

There are a number of different ways to fight charges of DUI in Virginia Beach. Police misconduct is the most common cause for dismissal. Police officers can only pull you over if they have been tipped off by another motorist or witness, or if they witness signs of intoxication themselves. After you've been pulled over, they must treat you with respect and take adequate measures to determine whether or not you are intoxicated. If they make a mistake when guiding you through field sobriety tests, or if they fail to calibrate a breathalyzer machine before having you take a breath test, you may have grounds for dismissal of your case based on police misconduct.
