DUI charges only the beginning for this mother

When a South Carolina resident is arrested drunk driving charges, a number of actions are set into motion. He or she will have an immediate need to take a legal stance, beginning with whether or not a release from jail can be obtained. Beyond that, it is necessary to create legal strategy to handle the DUI charges, and to attempt to mitigate or avoid the serious punitive measures that accompany such charges.

For one South Carolina woman, being charged with DUI is only a part of her current legal issues. After being arrested for allegedly driving drunk with two children in the car, she is also facing charges of child endangerment and driving without a license. Should she be convicted on these charges, she could face a wide range of negative repercussions, including a lengthy jail sentence.

There is no report on how the woman plans to answer these charges, or whether she has retained legal counsel. Once she has secured a defense attorney, the first steps will include a thorough review of the evidence in the case, including by which methods police determined that she was impaired while operating a motor vehicle. Should that evidence suggest that a conviction is likely in the case, her attorney could turn the focus toward crafting a plea deal that could help lessen the sentence she could receive.

Anyone who is facing DUI charges in South Carolina should make every effort to mount a strong legal response as soon as possible. The negative repercussions of a DUI conviction can be life-changing. For this woman, a conviction might also threaten her ability to have access to the children who were in her vehicle at the time of her arrest.
