Are You Facing a DUI Charge in South Carolina? Here’s What You Need to Know
Being charged with a DUI or another related offense can be a terrifying experience, and with good reason. If found guilty, these types of charges can have a devastating effect on your life. Whether it is your first time with this type of legal trouble, or you’ve been arrested (or even convicted) of a DUI in the past, it is a serious situation. Learning about what you can expect in the coming weeks and months, including what types of punishments you may receive, is an important first step in determining how you want your case to proceed.
While the police and prosecuting attorney may try to tell you that your only real option is a guilty plea, that is most certainly not the case. Unfortunately, these people try to get people to plead guilty as quickly as possible since it makes their job much easier and their records more impressive. No matter what you are told, remember that Beaufort DUI has been helping people in your situation for years, and we have a very impressive track record. No matter what the police or prosecutors offer you, just remember four key words:
I. Want. My. Attorney.
You shouldn’t say anything else to the police or anyone else you come in contact with until you have spoken with one of our experienced attorneys. When you call, we can send someone down to the jail to meet with you right away and provide you with advice on how you should proceed. We offer all of our new clients a free consultation, so don’t hesitate to ask to contact us immediately.
