Bangor, Maine Defense Attorneys Fighting OUI and DUI Charges
Bangor, Maine is a great place to live. Filled with museums, historical sites, a thriving nightlife – and also home to famed horror writer, Stephen King – Bangor's residents and visitors have many exciting opportunities. Like any city, however, Bangor has its problems. Surprisingly, Bangor's crime rate is slightly above the national average; and, operating/driving while under the influence (OUI and DUI) arrests occur all too often. Bangor law enforcement is very tough on drunk driving, and will not hesitate to make arrests for OUI and DUI. Consequently, prosecutors also take OUI and DUI cases very seriously and will spend the time and resources to ensure statutory fines and penalties are upheld to the fullest extent possible.
Bangor OUI/DUI charges are nothing to joke about.
Bangor OUI/DUI arrests are complex, expensive, and truly unfortunate situations. Not only are these arrests and resulting charges extremely inconvenient and embarrassing, but they potentially can follow an individual forever. An OUI/DUI conviction has the potential to ruin a person's life by negatively affecting child custody arrangements, employment, security clearance, volunteer work, and so much more. There may even be permanent criminal record implications and license revocation – not to mention other “inconveniences,” such as extremely high car insurance rates for several years, mandatory alcohol or drug counseling and rehabilitation courses, the installation of an ignition interlock device (IID), etc. The list goes on and on.
Don't go it alone.
Because there is so much at stake if you get arrested for an OUI or DUI, it is critical that you take the matter seriously and do everything within your power to minimize the fallout. One of the most effective ways to do this is to hire competent, experienced and reputable legal counsel to assist you every step of the way. You will find such counsel in the experienced and accomplished OUI/DUI-defense attorney, William T. Bly. He will defend you against an OUI/DUI charge, which can mean the difference between a conviction or an acquittal.
