Your breathalyzer results are not always reliable evidence

DUI charges are very common, but that doesn't mean they are charges to take lightly. In fact, DUI charges in South Carolina can result in surprisingly severe punishment, even for first-time offenders. If you face DUI charges, dealing with them fully should make the top of your list of priorities.

Your DUI could impact your ability to work in the future

After you get a DUI, one of the most worrying things may be that you don't know if you'll lose your job. Depending on the kind of job you have, a DUI could impact your ability to work. For instance, if you have to drive to get to work, you could struggle to get to work on time. If you drive for work, you may not be able to get insurance or be legally able to continue through your employer.

Common reasons you may fail a field sobriety test

If you are ever pulled over for a DUI check in South Carolina, you may need to take a field sobriety test. There are many kinds of sobriety tests officers can use during DUI traffic stops. However, the most common tests are the one-leg stand, HGN (Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus), and walk-and-turn tests. You do not need to be intoxicated to fail a sobriety test. Failing these tests do not necessarily mean you are going to end up with a DUI conviction. There are other factors the courts use to determine guilt in a DUI case besides field sobriety test results.
