  • HIGH BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATION - A BAC concentration between .10 and .159% constitutes a "High BAC" range. Said range will cause a license suspension and expose the defendant to a potential jail sentence;
  • HIGHEST BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATION - If you have a blood alcohol concentration of .16 or higher, or a blood alcohol concentration that includes indicia of a controlled substance, you will face the highest level of punishment including, but not limited to, license suspension and potential jail time.

Additional issues such as multiple DUI convictions, habitual offender status and driving under suspension -- DUI-related result in further license suspensions, jail time and additional penalties. It is critical that you hire an experience, former prosecutor to represent you as maintaining your license to drive your automobile is paramount.
