If you or a family member has been arrested or charged with drunk driving or any other criminal traffic violation, contact the Law Office of Salvatore Bonanno to speak with an experienced Hartford DUI defense lawyer.
Unlike other criminal cases, many DUI cases are very different. More often than not, the people Attorney Bonanno represents with DUI charges are people who have never dealt with the criminal justice system before.
In the state of Connecticut, as an adult 21 years or older, it is illegal to drive with an elevated blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher . DUI charges are very serious and can affect your entire way of living.
What Constitutes a DUI or DWI?
“A person commits a DUI when; (1) when such person is under the influence of an intoxicating liquor or any drug or both, OR when such person has an elevated blood/alcohol content, AND (2) such person operates, (3) a motor vehicle.”
What does all this legalese mean?
Under the law, a person can be charged with DUI if that person is under the “influence of an intoxicating liquor or any drug or both.” This can result from a variety of factors and is not always as cut-and-dry as many believe.
DUI arrests can be incredibly stressful, especially if you’ve never dealt with the criminal justice system before. It can leave you feeling scared, embarrassed, and full of questions. Attorney Bonanno is an experienced Connecticut DUI lawyer who is prepared to answer all of your questions, make sense of the charges, and work to get the best possible outcome.
