Dismissed DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) Charge; Dismissed DUI
Today in Hopewell General District Court, I represented a client charged with a DWI, 1st Offense charge. The client was charged under the Code of Virginia section 18.2-266 which states:

§ 18.2-266. Driving motor vehicle, engine, etc., while intoxicated, etc.
It shall be unlawful for any person to drive or operate any motor vehicle, engine or train (i) while such person has a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or more by weight by volume or 0.08 grams or more per 210 liters of breath

The possible punishment for a DWI/DUI in Virginia is dependent upon a number of factors such as: whether or not it was your first offense, your BAC (Blood alcohol content) and other facts in the case such as the level of potential endangerment posed on others.

There are many possible defenses to a DWI in Virginia. These cases can be complicated and require dedication to prove innocence and/or achieve a desired result. In this particular case, I presented a legal argument which got my client’s case completely dismissed.

If you have a pending DUI/DWI in Virginia, contact me as soon as possible to discuss your case.
