Although being charged with driving while intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol is a common offense, the courts will not take it lightly. Being charged with a DUI or DWI felony can lead to revocation of your driver’s license, endless fines, and in some cases, jail time.
These types of inconveniences can have a negative impact on your everyday life, your finances, and in some extreme cases, even your employment.
