- Lastly, examine the validity of field sobriety tests given by police
In the city of New Orleans, penalties for DUI include serving a minimum of 10 days in jail and also paying a minimum $300 fine – for first-time offenders. If you are convicted of DWI or DUI you could face a plethora of penalties including driver’s license suspension, higher premiums on your insurance, and up to six months jail time. If you are convicted three or more times you will ultimately lose your vehicle and right to drive. That’s no fun for anyone. With such harsh penalties at stake, you can see why it is important to have an aggressive attorney who will build a case in your defense.
