Yes, tens of thousands of people every year in America are charged with DUI. Many of these are college students and many of them don't want their parents to find out they have been charged with such a serious crime. They try to handle the case on their own and end up putting their futures at far more risk than informing their parents and seeking the best defense.
Of course, a DA will be happy to "make a deal" with you and offer lesser penalties for a conviction. Remember, a conviction is just that and it can affect your future in ways from getting jobs to entering foreign countries.
If you have been charged with DUI or any crime, you will most likely need the financial help of your parents and/or family to make sure you have the best defense available. It is a time to come together with your family and defend your rights. Always remember, never drink and drive, but if you are charged with DUI or any criminal offense, and if you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont, and have been arrested or charged with DUI or any crime, call Handy Law for aggressive and experienced legal defense.
