There is a presumption of intoxication, if your BAC (blood alcohol content) exceeds .08 at the time you were driving. Your BAC may vary depending on the amount of alcohol you drank and how much time has passed since your last drink.
A DUI charge with no other aggravating circumstances is considered a misdemeanor. However, depending on the circumstances surrounding your DUI, you may also be charged with additional offenses. If you caused an accident and injured or killed another individual while driving under the influence, you may also be charged with felony DUI and some degree of homicide.
A felony DUI conviction often includes time in jail, a lengthy probation and possible revocation of your license. If you have caused the death of another individual while driving under the influence, you may be charged with felony DUI, a homicide such as reckless homicide, or even voluntary manslaughter. In this case, the family of the deceased victim may bring a civil action for wrongful death against you as well.
If you have been charged with DUI, you need legal representation from an experienced DUI attorney.
