Skilled & Experienced DUI Defense

Olathe DWI Defense Attorney

Have You Been Arrest For Drunk Driving in Johnson County?

It is illegal to operate a vehicle anywhere in the United States while under the influence of alcohol. If a person drinks and drives he could be pulled over by law enforcement and charged with a DWI. Driving while intoxicated or driving while impaired is a DWI. If you or someone you know has been charged with a DWI do not wait to contact an experienced Olathe criminal defense attorney who can represent you and protect your rights. My Law Firm of John E. Harvell, P.A. has successfully represented and defended individuals with a DWI charge.

What if I am found guilty of a DWI?

A person who has been seen driving carelessly or erratically can be stopped by an officer and asked to take a sobriety test. If the test determines that the alcohol level of the driver is above the limit he will probably be arrested and charged with a DWI. Drunk drivers cause accidents and kill thousands of people each year making a DWI a serious criminal charge. Penalties for a DWI conviction may include suspended license, sizeable fines, and jail time. There may be court-mandated alcohol treatment programs that must be completed and paid for by the offender. A person with a DWI may also face increased insurance rates. It may become difficult to get a job. If a commercial vehicle driver is arrested for a DWI then that driver could automatically lose his license for a period of time. If there was a minor in the vehicle at the time of the drunken driving arrest, then the penalty could be increased.
