DUI & Drug DUI Offenses

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is one of the most common offenses committed by those struggling with addiction. Whether it’s your first time being charged or you are a repeat offender, you should always take your case seriously. However, your struggle shouldn’t haunt you for the rest of your life. Handling your case with an aggressive defense may be the first step you can take to a clean and sober future.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, some DUI charges can be reduced to a reckless driving offense, known as a “wet reckless.” Courts and prosecutors will often weigh the accused’s conduct when making this determination and sometimes require the defendant to enroll in a substance abuse program like Alcoholics Anonymous as a part of a plea bargain. This is a fantastic first step on the path to sobriety—handling your charges while also finding a support program that can be with you along your journey to sobriety.

Is Intoxication a Valid Criminal Defense?

Believe it or not, being intoxicated at the time of an offense does not guarantee a guilty plea. In fact, for offenses other than DUI, voluntary intoxication could be a mitigating factor used to disprove intent. Most people don’t drink or take drugs with the intention of becoming violent, but intoxication can have an effect on someone’s judgment, causing them to lose control of their emotions and actions.

For those who struggle with disorderly conduct or behavior as a result of intoxication, getting sober is the first step toward restoring control, regaining respect, and repairing relationships that may have been strained as a result of struggles with addiction. At HJP Legal, we want to help you down that path and be a part of your comeback story.
