Defending Those Accused Of Driving Under The Influence Of Alcohol And Drugs
Getting behind the wheel after drinking alcohol or taking another mind-altering substance is a seemingly small mistake with big repercussions. Being convicted of DUI or DWI can haunt a person for the rest of their lives, both legally and socially.
At McPherson Law Office, PLLC, I can help you fight these consequences. I am Robyn McPherson, an Idaho criminal defense attorney, and I help drivers facing drunk driving charges. I fight to protect them from harsh legal penalties and preserve their freedoms and reputations.
The Penalties For Drunk Driving In Idaho
In Idaho, it’s illegal to drive when you have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of more than 0.08%. The limit is 0.02% for people under 21 and 0.04% for those driving a commercial vehicle. There’s no legally permissible amount of illegal drugs a driver can have in their system.
Those facing a first-time DUI charge can expect:
- Up to six months in jail time
- Up to a $1,000 fine
- A license suspension period from 90 to 180 days
The penalties become increasingly more severe upon repeat offenses.
I’ve helped a wide range of people, including college students, in various circumstances fight the charges they’re facing.
What If Your DUI Or DWI Involved Drugs?
Sometimes, traffic stops for suspected drunk driving lead to other criminal issues, like drug violations. If you’re facing additional charges related to marijuana or other drugs in tandem with a DUI or DWI, I can help you fight those as well.
My Approach To My DUI And DWI Clients
At my firm, I don’t believe that people’s mistakes should haunt them forever. I see good people make mistakes all the time, and I think everyone deserves a chance to defend themselves.
I use my more than two decades’ worth of experience and my genuine care for my clients to craft legal strategies that give them an opportunity to retain their rights and maintain good social standing in their community.
