In South Carolina DUI convictions can carry substantial penalties including fines, jail time, driver's license suspension or revocation and additional requirements such as ADSAP and SR-22 insurance. These penalties become substantially more severe, particularly in terms of duration, for 2nd and subsequent DUI charges. And these penalties become even more substantially sever when the charge involves a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of at least .10. If you are charged with driving under the influence in South Carolina, then it is something to be taken very seriously. Your James Island DUI lawyer can work with you to minimize potential negative outcomes from a DUI charge. After an arrest for DUI in James Island, time can be a critical factor, and it is essential that a James Island DUI lawyer analyze your case and all of your legal options directly from the start.
