Law Enforcement Are Ramping Up Drugged Driving Charges
Law enforcement in New York City takes possible instances of drugged driving extremely seriously. This means drivers who are facing allegations of drugged driving need to be ready to consult with a lawyer if they are facing these allegations.
Our lawyers at Braunfotel & Frendel LLC have nearly 30 years of combined experience advocating for the rights of our clients. As traffic stops from alleged instances of driving under the influence of drugs have risen, our attorneys have become aggressive in fighting for our clients’ best interests. We will work hard to help you move beyond drugged or drunk driving charges you are facing.
The Penalties For A Drug DUI Are Severe
Just as the penalties for the first DWI/DUI are harsh, so too are the consequences from a first-time drugged driving conviction. If convicted, you may face the following penalties:
- $500 to $1,00 in fines
- Up to one year in jail
- Up to a six-month revoked license
Subsequent convictions are felonies, with fines increasing to up to $10,000 and jail time of up to 10 years. We are committed to helping achieve a favorable outcome to your case, whether through settlement, litigation or a dismissal of charges.
You Need Someone On Your Side
DWI/DUI stops have clear procedures in place. The same is not true during a drugged driving stop. Police have significantly more discretion during drugged driving stops. Prosecutors have more tools to keep a drugged driving investigation going much longer than a drunk driving case. These factors make it difficult to overcome the charges.
