You have been stopped while operating a vehicle and are facing a DUI charge. Chances are, you are uncertain what steps to take next. The first thing you need to do is contact an attorney who can help you fight back. Keep in mind, under Alabama law, a first-time conviction for DUI will result in the automatic loss of your driver’s license for 90 days.
The sooner you get an attorney involved in your defense, the better. Keep in mind, an arrest is not a conviction. To get a conviction, the prosecutor must be able to demonstrate you were impaired due to consumption of alcohol or drugs. While Alabama has an implied consent rule, you can still legally refuse to take a breath or blood test, if you are aware of the potential consequences.
