Operating While Intoxicated
Indianapolis Operating While Intoxicated (OVWI/DUI) Attorney
If you have been arrested for operating while intoxicated in Indiana (sometimes referred to as OVWI, DUI, OWI or DWI), you could be facing jail time, probation, fines, or a suspended driver’s license. You need an attorney by your side who will aggressively defend you and fight for your rights.
When facing charges for operating while intoxicated, it is important to consider all of your options and all of the possible consequences a conviction for this type of offense can bring. In addition to any criminal penalties a conviction might bring, you may also be facing a lengthy license suspension or expensive fees. Depending on your driving history, a conviction for operating while intoxicated may also lead to you being labeled a Habitual Traffic Violator, which can carry an additional license suspension of five or more years.
Each OVWI is different and factors such as whether you completed any field tests (SFSTs), took a breath test, a blood test or refused a test (Implied Consent Laws) can change the course of an investigation and prosecution. All of these factors can also dramatically change the course of your defense strategy. It is important to speak with a OVWI lawyer early on in the process to avoid missing any critical issues and/or defenses that may be raised. A lawyer may also be able to help you obtain specialized driving privileges if the court suspends your driver’s license while the case is pending.
