What is DUI?
DUI stands for Driving Under the Influence. Generally, that means driving under the influence of alcohol, or drunk driving. DUI can also mean driving under the influence of drugs, or controlled substances. Under Maryland law, DUI is a more serious charge than DWI (Driving While Intoxicated). In order to be charged with DUI, you must have a blood alcohol level (BAC) of .08 or more.
When you are cited for a DUI in Maryland, you face several different sets of penalties. In court, the judge can set jail time, fines, probation and several other penalties. In addition, the Motor Vehicle Administration will try to suspend your driver’s license. There are additional charges and penalties if you hold a CDL license, or are under 21 and charged with DUI. The court penalties and the MVA penalties are independent of each other. However, what happens in court can affect what happens to your driver’s license.
DUI Attorney T. Wray McCurdy has the experience and expertise you need to defend you in court, and to help you navigate the MVA system to avoid stiff penalties. Time is of the essence in defending yourself on a DUI charge, as there are some relatively short, hard and fast deadlines that have permanent non-modifiable consequences.
