Attorney Paul Tafelski comments on news item in www.Archive.WZZM13.com about Student charged with drunk driving after deadly crash.
Cases like this demonstrate why courts take DUI so seriously. It is, however, important to draw a distinction between the crime of killing someone while under the influence and simply being stopped while operating with a BAC above the legal limit. These are two different crimes and sometimes courts don’t necessarily respect that distinction. That’s why it is imperative to have representation that will help you demonstrate to the court the facts of your case that mitigate your circumstances such as no prior record, community involvement, concern for others, proximity to home, etc.
