Rhode Island has some of the strictest DWI laws in the country. If you’re arrested and subsequently convicted of a DWI in Rhode Island, you could be looking at hefty fines, license suspension or revocation, and even jail time! Even if you’re only convicted one time of a DWI, you could be facing up to a year in prison for the conviction.
It doesn’t take that much to get convicted of a DWI in Rhode Island. Under the law, if you are under the age of 21, and get a .02% on your BAC (as little as one drink, especially if you’re on medication), you could be found guilty of a DWI. Furthermore, thanks to the implied consent law in Rhode Island, if you refuse to take a breathalyzer test, you will be hit with a fine and an automatic license suspension. Finally, if you’re driving a commercial truck, you could be found guilty of a DWI if you get a .04% (about two drinks) on your BAC.
With laws that are this convoluted, it’s easy to get “tripped up” and, before you know it, you’re convicted of a DWI. That’s why, if you’ve been arrested for a DWI, the very first thing you need to do is call the trusted DWI defense attorney – S. Joshua Macktaz – who can fight for your rights.
