Personal Attention From The Experienced Advocate You Deserve

Preparing for DUI-related probation

If you have been convicted of driving under the influence, one of the consequences you may currently be facing is probation. You may feel relieved about escaping harsher consequences than probation and/or concerned about how probation may affect you. If knowledge is indeed power, one of the most beneficial things you can do for your present and your future is to learn as much as you can about the terms of your probation and plan ahead so that you do not unintentionally violate any of those terms. Failure to treat probation proactively can lead to severe consequences.

While on probation, your driver’s license may be suspended or otherwise limited. If so, take care to make alternate travel arrangements and to have back-up plans in place if any of those arrangements fall through. If you get caught driving with a suspended license, you may face new criminal charges in addition to consequences for violating your probation.

In addition, you may be given a zero tolerance blood alcohol requirement. This generally means that you can be cited for additional drunk driving charges if you are found to be driving with any alcohol in your bloodstream whatsoever.

Probation terms tend to differ from one individual case to another. Some terms of probation are quite common, while others are not. Your criminal defense attorney can help you to clarify any terms that you may not fully understand. It is far better to ask for clarification than it is to end up in jail for unintentionally violating your probation.
