DUI Penalties in Maryland
If you have been pulled over by a law enforcement agent and your blood
alcohol concentration (BAC) is .07% or above, you will be charged with
Driving While Imparied and/or Driving Under the Influence. Under Maryland
law, if your BAC is .08 or above, you are "per se intoxicated"
and you can be convicted. Some of the penalties that you could be subject
to include the following for a
- Drivers License Suspension
- Fines of up to $1000
- 8 to 12 points on your driver's license
- Up to 1 year in jail
- Alcohol treatment and classes
Second and subsequent offenders face even harsher penalties. Convictions
for out of state drivers may be reported to home state.
Additionally, you only have 10 days after the date of your DUI arrest to
schedule an administrative hearing with the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration
(MVA) regarding a proposed suspension due to the BAC result or for a test
refusal. This hearing is not related to your criminal trial, but will
determine your future driving privileges. Do not forget that your Cecil
County DUI lawyer can defend your right to drive in this MVA hearing.
I have helped countless individuals retain their driving privileges through
an aggressive and effective defense in their MVA hearings.

hire any lawyer. You need an aggressive, experience lawyer to defend you.
I have decades of experience handling all types of criminal charges in
the state. I have a proven success record and I am determined to give
you the best possible service.
