What to Do After a Drunk Driving Arrest
Bronx DWI Lawyer
If you have been arrested and charged with the crime of driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol, then you need skilled legal representation on your side. The legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit in the state of New York is 0.08%, and if your BAC is found to be at or above this level, then you will be arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI). If a police officer believes you to be driving under the influence and your BAC shows traceable amounts of alcohol less than the legal limit, then you could still be charged with the crime of DUI. Depending on your charges, you could face a range of penalties upon conviction.
The first thing you must do if you have been arrested for this crime is to remain silent. You have the right to remain silent as any information you give could later be used against you in court. The second thing you must do is to contact a skilled Bronx criminal defense attorney to begin building your case. Do not answer any questions or speak with anyone until you are able to consult with an attorney. At The Law Offices of Elliot S. Kay, we have handled these situations in the past, and you can be sure that we will work with you to pursue the results that you need for your future.
