DUI Charges in the Military

Driving drunk is considered a serious offense since it puts others in harm’s way. For civilians, if an individual driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) was tested at over 0.08%—or even less in some circumstances—he or she may be arrested and charged with a DUI. For members of the military, the law is even stricter. Any measureable amount of alcohol can be sufficient for a DUI charge if it affects your ability to drive a vehicle. Our firm understands the unique aspects of the case that could serve to make a difference in the end result.

DUI Penalties & Defenses

Some of the consequences you could face for a DUI as a member of the military include:

  • Pay cuts
  • Fines
  • Incarceration
  • Demotion
  • Dishonorable discharge

Our firm can help you understand possible defenses to the DUI charges you face. For example, we understand the proper proceeding for a DUI arrest. If the arresting officer did not follow protocol, the charges might be thrown out. We understand how to protect your rights and our aggressive advocacy can defend you.
