License Suspension After A DUI Arrest In Connecticut
Even if you are found not guilty in a criminal case for drunk driving, the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can suspend your license and assess points that count against your driving record. To protect your rights and interests in both arenas, you should contact a skilled DUI/DWI defense attorney.
Our criminal defense lawyers at Paoletti & Gusmano, Attorneys at Law, have extensive experience representing individuals in Bridgeport and surrounding areas in a variety of drunk driving offenses. We use our in-depth knowledge and years of trial experience to protect your right to be on the road.
Defending Your Driver’s License
In addition to a criminal case, those arrested for suspected drunk driving may also attend an Administrative Per Se hearing before the DMV. The DMV is automatically notified if you take a blood, urine or Breathalyzer test, and the results could have significant bearing on the outcomes of your hearing. For a first-time offender, penalties for DUI/DWI can include license suspension for:
- Six months for refusal to submit to a breath, blood or urine test
- 90 days if you are under 21 and test results are .02 or higher
- 90 days if your blood alcohol content is measured at .08 to .15
- 120 days if test results are .16 or higher
As your legal advocate, we attend every hearing either on your behalf or along with you to ensure your rights are protected throughout the proceedings. We engage in creative discovery techniques and explore every possibility of false positive readings.
