I’ve Been Charged With A DUI. Will I Lose My License?
The penalties in South Dakota for a DUI/DWI are severe. Even for a first offense, you face significant fines and possible jail time. A DUI conviction also affects your ability to operate your motor vehicle. You face a possible driver’s license suspension and numbers of restrictions. Finally, the personal consequences following a DUI arrest and conviction may never fully go away.
At the Skinner Law Office, P.C., we fight for you in every aspect of your case in the event of DUI charges. In some instances we fight to have charges reduced. In other instances we go to court and work toward dismissal of all charges.
