Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Driving with an Unlawful Alcohol Concentration (DUAC) are significant criminal offenses in South Carolina. While it may seem easy to simply pay the fine and avoid the hassle and expense of hiring an attorney to contest a DUI or DUAC, it is important to understand that paying the fine will result in a criminal conviction that can bring life-altering consequences including: loss of or restrictions to your driver’s license, loss of employment or future employment opportunities, loss of your professional license, dramatically increased auto insurance rates, required installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle, and potentially even jail time.
If you or a loved one has been charged with DUI or DUAC, your family has a lot at stake. It is vitally important that you consult with an attorney who is well-versed with the laws and procedures regarding DUI and DUAC in South Carolina as soon as possible after arrest. There are administrative and other deadlines that must be met to preserve your rights under the law.
