Repeat DUIs Add Up to Trouble

With skilled help from people like the lawyers at Kellis Law, it is quite possible to prove that your DUI charge was incorrect.  However, with each repeat offense the job gets more difficult. If you have been charged with DUI and didn’t get convicted, you’ll want to be extra careful when drinking in the future. Otherwise you may end up in a situation like today’s story.

A Delaware woman was charged with her 4th DUI after flipping her Chevy Suburban SUV. It was a single-car crash involving overcorrection. The car drifted onto the shoulder, causing the driver to pull the wheel hard back toward the road. Unfortunately, this caused the car to flip onto its roof in the middle of the roadway. It’s a common problem with heavy SUVs.

The driver was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, but then she was handed her 4th DUI charge. It is very likely that they drew blood at the hospital to check her blood alcohol content level. A properly performed blood test for alcohol is among the strongest pieces of evidence the prosecution can have against you. The driver is now being held in jail awaiting trial.

It is our job here at Kellis Law to help people avoid conviction on bad DUI charges. However, we do recognize that there are people who have serious problems with alcohol. Going through a DUI charge is extremely stressful. If you know you have a drinking problem, please seek help before you get charged with a DUI.
