Hardworking Kentucky Lawyer Defends Clients Charged with DUI
Georgetown attorney protects the fundamental rights of drivers
A drunk driving charge can quickly turn your life upside down. In many cases, accused motorists are too intimidated or embarrassed to assert their fundamental legal rights when they’ve been arrested for DUI. At Larmour Law Offices, PSC in Georgetown, we advocate on behalf of central Kentucky clients to make sure that they receive fair treatment throughout the law enforcement process. Errors frequently lead to prejudice against defendants charged with driving under the influence. From investigating improper stops to questioning tainted test results, we can identify where problems occurred and challenge faulty evidence in court. We understand the impact this type of allegation can have, so we work tirelessly to obtain the best possible result, whether that is a dismissal, an acquittal or a favorable plea bargain. No matter how difficult your situation might seem, we will explain your options and develop a strategy that offers you the best chance of a favorable result.
Proven firm advises on issues related to drunk driving allegations
Kentucky recorded more than 17,000 DUI arrests in 2016 (eighth in the nation), and 192 deaths were attributed to accidents involving drunk driving. Various measures exist in an effort to reduce these numbers. Our firm’s dedicated legal support can help you build a strong defense against DUI charges. We will ensure you understand the relevant aspects of the state’s DUI law, including:
- Refusing a breathalyzer test — By operating a vehicle on a Kentucky road, you consent to sobriety tests administered by law enforcement. Refusing to take a breathalyzer or blood test results in an automatic license suspension, a fine and possibly an increased sentence if you are convicted of DUI.
- Special rules for commercial operators and young drivers— In most cases, a Kentucky driver is considered legally intoxicated if their blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08 percent or greater. However, if you are a driving a commercial truck, the standard is .04 percent. Motorists under the age of 21 have an even tougher standard: they are considered impaired when their BAC is only .02 percent.
- Penalties — A first DUI offense usually results in a short jail stay, a fine and license suspension. However, penalties increase for multiple offenses, and certain circumstances trigger tougher sanctions. These can include excessive speed, a BAC of .18 percent or higher, intoxicated driving with young children in the car, or causing an accident that results in injury.
