Back to School DUI

Unfortunately many high school seniors do a little too much partying before the start of their college careers.  Many DUI charges occur in the summer months prior to the start of the fall term.  In Northern Kentucky, that may mean court cases or starting college with a pending OVI, DUI or other charges from the summer.  Many others will get a taste of the criminal court system soon after they return to school and want to keep the information from their parents who are footing the bill. IF you have been charged with DUI or any other crime and you are over 18 years of age, your parents do not have to know. Many students do choose to tell their parents as they are often the only source of financial assistance to hire a lawyer.  That is the prerogative of the defendant, not the attorney and not the parents. If you get a charge, don't just plead guilty!  An attorney may be able to help to lessen the charge, lessen the fine and/or jail time, or even have the case dismissed.  If you have a possession case, those can often be worked out without a guilty plea or a finding of guilt.  Possession may include possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia or possession of alcohol by a minor.  Generally, possession of controlled substance other than marijuana is a felony charge and do not simply go away. Many people plead guilty to DUI charges, however it should be noted that many are winnable cases.  Additionally, a under 21 DUI has significantly different penalties to a "regular" DUI charge.  If you are in college, having a clean record is the first key to obtaining a job after your schooling is complete. If you are student returning to school or headed back and receive a criminal or DUI charge, contact an attorney.  In Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, call Michael Bouldin for a consultation at mwbouldin@fuse.net or call 859-581-6453.
