HOW VIRGINIA LAW APPLIES TO YOU

Having handled Thousands of Criminal Traffic Cases in all the Courts of Northern Virginia, we understand how critical your job and/or security clearance are to your livelihood and your family. If you are convicted of DUI/DWI and Refusal, you are facing not only significant jail time and a substantial fine; but you will also receive a Permanent Criminal Record with the FBI and Homeland Security and you could potentially lose your job; your security clearance; future employment opportunities; demerit points on your DMW record; the loss of your driver’s license; and your future.

In order for the Commonwealth to prove a DUI/DWI, they must prove:

1. That you were driving or operating a motor vehicle; and

2. That at the time you either:

  • a. Had a blood alcohol concentration of .08, or more;
  • b. Had a concentration of .08 grams or more of alcohol per 210 liters of breath;
  • c. Were under the influence of alcohol;
  • d. Were under the influence of a narcotic drug or other self-administered intoxicant or drug or under the influence of a combination of such drugs to a degree which impaired your ability to drive or operate a motor vehicle safely; or
  • e. Were under the combined influence of alcohol and any drug or drugs to a degree which impaired your ability to drive or operate a motor vehicle safely.

Unreasonable Refusal to take a Breath or Blood Test is a Civil violation. In order for the Commonwealth to prove Refusal they must prove:

1. That you were operating your motor vehicle on a highway; and

2. That you refused to submit to a blood or breath test to determine the alcohol content of his blood; and

3. That the refusal was unreasonable.

If you are found guilty of a DUI/DWI, the punishments can be very severe. DUI/DWI is a CLASS 1 MISDEMEANOR, punishable by up to 12 MONTHS IN JAIL and a Fine of up to $2,500, or Both! In addition, the court can suspend your privilege to drive for up to 12 months for a first offense and require you to install an Ignition Interlock device in your vehicle before they even consider allowing you to drive to and from work, school, medical visits, church, etc. with “Restricted Driving Privileges.” If you are found Guilty of a Refusal, the court has no choice but to revoke your driving privileges for 12 months and you would NOT be eligible for any “Restricted Driving Privileges.”
