You've been Arrested for DUI, Now What?
Everyone knows driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can get you in a lot of trouble. In Las Vegas Nevada, NRS 484C.110-400 makes it a crime to operate a motor vehicle when under the influence.
When it comes to alcohol, if your BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) is over .08% within two hours of being in actual physical control of a motor vehicle, you have violated the DUI statute. However, if you are under 21 years old, the law is even more strict: you can't have a BAC over .02%.
It's not all bad news, however. If you have been arrested for DUI in Las Vegas Nevada, and it is your first DUI offense, chances are you're only going to be charged with a misdemeanor. A misdemeanor has a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail, but don't be alarmed, most first time DUI cases do not end up involving serious jail time, so long as you have the right DUI defense attorney that can guide your case towards a fair resolution.
If you have been arrested for DUI, you most likely have some immediate problems: was your car impounded? Is your license suspended?
