Driving Under the Influence

While DUI's start out as misdemeanors they are a beast of their own. That is why they get their own page.

From the very beginning there are very important differences anyone charged with a DUI should be aware of. The first is that there is an opportunity to challenge that the police had probable cause to begin with. This hearing is very important if you denied testing by the officer. Additionally, there are resources available to help mitigate the overall sentence of a DUI conviction that an attorney can assist you with. Many of these resources take time to complete and get into and when combining that with the other deadlines that a DUI has it is imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after being charged with a DUI.

In many states, Including Idaho, you can get a DUI charge for driving under the influence of any controlled substance and not just alcohol. For each different substance there are different steps a person may have to take. Depending on the substance there could also be varying sentences passed by the court. At Hansen Legal we have dealt with all forms of DUI's and we know what works in defending these cases.
