The experienced lawyers at Nave DWI Defense Attorneys know that DWI or DUI charges can happen to anyone. No matter who you are, where you are from, your gender, race, creed, religion social status, or occupation… if you use alcohol or any type of drug (even prescriptions), and get behind the wheel of a car, you risk the consequences associated with the choice to drive under those conditions.
But we also understand that mistakes happen. Maybe you are not visibly impaired, or maybe you do not notice your impairment as much as an objective outsider might. Either way, driving under the influence places you and others on the road at risk for accidents, injuries, and even death. Because of this, if you are pulled over by an officer who suspects that you’re driving in any way that indicates you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you risk being exposed to a breathalyzer, field sobriety test, arrest and subsequent legal consequences including prosecution, conviction, sentencing, fines, and more.
A recent article from TWC News proves that anyone can face DWI charges. While we cannot be certain of the factors involved in this case, we can say that this is a prime example of the ramifications of driving while intoxicated. Not only do you risk an accident, injury to yourself and others, or your own death and that of others, you risk your career, income, reputation, and public scrutiny as well.
The story details the case of a 34 year old Rochester New York Judge who crashed her car last month and was arrested and charged with DWI. The accident occurred in the early morning hours on Interstate 490 westbound.
The judge was lucky, as she did not have any injuries and no other persons were involved or injured. Her BAC is still unknown. She was processed and released, and is scheduled to appear for her first court appearance later this month.
This case is a reminder of the serious consequences that come with a DWI conviction. However, it is important not to forget that one way to potentially soften the blow in the aftermath is by retaining a knowledgeable and experienced attorney.
