Drunk driving lawyers working to protect the rights of Little Rock residents
Most Arkansas DWI and DUI cases are misdemeanors. The state of Arkansas considers you to be driving while intoxicated if you are stopped with a blood alcohol content of .08% and have not caused a traffic accident or injury to another. For drivers younger than 21 years old, the limit is .02%. The penalties for DWI increase and become more severe with every new offense. Quite often people think there is no way to fight a DWI case and, sometimes, choose to not even hire an attorney. There are, however, several procedures that the arresting officer is required to follow when he stops you and, if he or she fails to follow the correct procedures, then it may be possible to have your case dismissed. It is important you contact an attorney immediately so that you fully understand what your rights are and to determine if your rights were violated when you were stopped.
