A DUI/DWI in Monroe is a serious charge for which you can face severe penalties. Although it is generally a misdemeanor offense, you could face jail time, fines, and other potential penalties if you are convicted. The state of Louisiana also considers a five year lookback period for which prior DUIs are relevant when determining the sentence for a subsequent DUI/DWI charge. You could lose your driving privileges and have limited employment opportunities just for being charged with DUI.
DUI and DWI laws in Monroe can often be complex and in flux. It is in your best interests to protect your Constitutional right to legal counsel by working with an attorney who is knowledgeable in all the local and state DUI statutes.
