Delaware DUI Penalties
Delaware DUI Penalties: The punishments for driving under the influence in Delaware are severe, but the right attorney can make the difference between jail and no jail, or between a longer and shorter sentence. Even a first offense Delaware DUI conviction carries up to 6 months in jail, and up to a 24 month license suspension depending on your alcohol level.
There are also steep fines, alcohol classes, and other serious sanctions that a lawyer will help you minimize and negotiate.
There is simply so much at stake in a Delaware DUI case that you need the help of a seasoned professional.
Delaware DUI Court Process
Delaware DUI Process: Navigating the criminal court process can be daunting in any case, but is especially so in DUI cases. This is because, due to the high volume of charges that the courts and prosecutors must process, and due to the fact that a Delaware DUI is truly the “every-man’s” charge, prosecutors and judges may see your case as “routine” and less than serious unless you have a strong voice in the courtroom pointing out that this event and its outcome will have a lasting impact on your life and the lives of those you care about.
In addition to the criminal court process which will determine your guilt or innocence, as well as your sentence and terms of probation, you will also need to navigate the civil license and driving aspects of your DE DUI case. Mr. Chambers is highly experienced with the Delaware DUI license suspension hearing process, and with Delaware ignition interlock laws.
The Delaware DUI case against you may not be as strong as it seems
Were you given a chemical test for drugs or alcohol? Delaware DUI chemical testing is not foolproof. In fact, blood, breath and urine testing for alcohol and drug content is highly inaccurate when applied incorrectly. Mr. Chambers has the training and experience to recognize when there is something wrong with the process, and the ability to use that to show your innocence.
There are many other issues that can make or break a case, but those issues must be found and recognized. Furthermore, your attorney must have the motivation and skill to investigate and document failures in chemical and field sobriety testing, and be able to effectively present them in negotiations on your behalf, and in court. Mr. Chambers is highly qualified and skilled at doing just that.
If you are not represented, or if you choose the wrong lawyer, you may never learn about scandals within police departments, evidence contamination issues, breath machine failures, missing, disciplined, injured or retired police officers, and many other things that could literally make the difference between your conviction and acquittal or dismissal.
