1 How is a driving under the influence (DUI) violation defined?
Driving under the influence of alcohol, according to the legal definition, occurs when your blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08% or greater. Driving under the influence of drugs to the extent that it significantly impairs your driving abilities also counts as a DUI violation.
2 How are DUIs generally punished?
While the exact punishment for a DUI conviction will vary based on things like past violations and BAC level, some of the most common sentencing elements include: jail or prison terms, fines, DUI classes, a probationary period, community service, and having your driver’s license suspended for as long as 12 months.
3 What are the Miranda Rights?
The Miranda Rights are based on the Bill of Rights, but reading them to those put under arrest only became a regular part of law enforcement practice after a Supreme Court case in the 60s. The Miranda Rights include: the right to remain silent and not testify against oneself, the right to have your attorney present during questioning, and the right to a public defender if you cannot afford an attorney.
