Police Do Not Lighten Up On Vacationers
DUI/DWI has become an industry in South Carolina, particularly in vacation spots like Myrtle Beach. People who harm no one are constantly arrested on drunk driving charges and are subjected to a set of significant punishments:
- Heavy fines
- Suspension or revocation of license
- Community service
- Insurance rate hikes
- Attendance at alcohol classes or treatment
- Jail time
Something you may not think about is drunk driving while boating. If your blood alcohol content is .08 or higher, police may consider you to be boating under the influence. A conviction could mean similar penalties to those of a DUI. Do not assume that police will not be able to keep an eye on you out on the water.
Hit-And-Run And Felony DUI Charges Have Serious Penalties
If you are charged with felony DUI or hit-and-run, the punishments are even more severe. These charges often do involve someone getting hurt. The need for strong representation is even greater.
South Carolina charges drivers with felony DUI when they are driving drunk or otherwise impaired, and they cause serious injury or death to another person.
In recent years the penalties for felony DUI and multiple-offense DUI have become much stiffer. Conviction for felony DUI today means a mandatory prison sentence and a substantial fine.
