What Happens After You Get A DUI?
So you've received a DUI and now you're wondering--what now? Figuring out your next steps in the DUI process can be hard, especially since DUI requirements vary from state to state and case to case. Below are some guidelines for what to expect after you've received a DUI.
Do I Need To Tell My Employer I Got A DUI?
For many, a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) can potentially be an embarrassing time in a person’s life, a moment they want to keep private. Unfortunately, if you have been convicted of drunk driving, you may need to disclose this information at your current job or when you apply for jobs.
What Do Alcohol Assessment And Alcohol Treatment Mean In A DUI Case?
In many states, one of the steps following a drunk driving arrest (DUI, DWI or OWI) or another alcohol-related arrest is an alcohol assessment, also sometimes called an alcohol evaluation. Alcohol assessments are required for DUI, DWI and OWI cases because state governments are concerned drunk driving indicates general alcohol misuse. Depending on the conclusions of your alcohol assessment, you might be required to complete an alcohol treatment program.
