What is New .15 DUI Law in Kentucky?

Persons charged with DUI in Kentucky who submit to a breathalyzer now have a new consideration and consequence depending on their blood alcohol level. Kentucky has recently passed a law which modifies the "high tier" limit for DUI from .18 to .15. This is now in effect having changed July, 2010. The high tier is considered an "aggravator" to the charge of DUI. Other aggravators include: driving wrong way on highway, accident with serious injuries, speeding over 30 mph over speed limit, having a child under 12 in the vehicle, and refusal to submit to a blood alcohol test. If convicted with the aggravator, a criminal defendant is subject to 4 days in jail on a first offense and double minimum jail time on any subsequent offense. This change in the law should be considered before a defendant decides whether to consent to a breathalyzer or any other blood alcohol test. The change should also be a major consideration prior to any guilty plea or decision to contest and have a trial when charged with DUI. If you have been charged with DUI in Northern Kentucky, contact Michael Bouldin at 859-582-6453 or mwbouldin@fuse.net.

Does Anyone With Win DUI?

Yes, people with lawyers often can end up with a dismissal, not guilty or amendment of the charge of DUI. An attorney can guide you through the process of whether to plead guilty, whether a deal can be struck in which the charge can be amended or whether to litigate the case to a judge or a jury. The sooner that a person charged with DUI hires an attorney the greater the likelihood of a favorable resolution. While Kentucky does not recognize an expertise in the practice of criminal defense, hiring an attorney with significant experience in the specific area will greatly increase your chances of success. An attorney should be able to discuss various areas including: discovery, suppression, standard field sobriety tests, intoxilyzer, and the advantages and perils of a bench or jury trial. Contact Michael W. Bouldin for consult and advice if you ahve been charged with a DUI or other traffic or criminal offense. Michael Bouldin can be contacted at 859-581-6453 or mwbouldin@fuse.net.
