Drunk Driving Charges – Helping CDL Holders to Fight

Getting a Commercial driving license or CDL is not an easy deal in the USA. You have to pay a fee and appear for tests to get CDL. It requires a lot of dedication and hard work too. Your CDL is the only way to help you remain employed and earn. Now, unfortunately, if you are pulled over for some reason at a traffic spot and charged with DUI, then it can potentially cause losing your license. Along with that, you will lose your source of earnings too.

In Ohio, for a CDL holder, losing it feels like the end of the world. On one hand, it is difficult to get back your CDL license. On the other, your future earnings will be at stake. And in Ohio, it affects a lot of people who are running their small business, or an entry-level employee, or a long haul truck driver from out of state. In Ohio, if you are facing DUI charges and losing your CDL, then you will need to consult a Youngstown OVI Lawyer. The whole incident can feel overwhelming. And that is why you need to have the guidance of a professional lawyer. At Pittsburgh Injury Law Group, our experienced Youngstown Criminal Lawyer will help you through the trial and will ensure the best possible resolution.

The Basic of DUIs for CDL Holder

It doesn’t take much for a commercial driver to get affected negatively for being charged with DUI. If you are a commercial driver, being judged and getting convicted isn’t necessary. Being accused and arrested for DUI charges and for having higher BAC can lead to your CDL suspension for 90 days. In case the driver or the offender refuses to get tested, it will lead to an administrative suspension period of one year. This situation can be devastating as your commercial vehicle is the only way for you to travel for work. And losing CDL will make your employer let go of you as you won’t be able to drive the commercial vehicle until you reinstate and get the license back. That is why you need to have a Youngstown Criminal Lawyer by your side.

If you are a CDL holder and are convicted with DUI, it will lead to,

  • Giving up CDL for one year
  • In case it is your second conviction, you will lose your CDL for a lifetime
  • Getting the punishments with additional court sanction
  • Facing more criminal charges for homicide or manslaughter, ni case the DUI has led to an accident causing the death of one or more.

Mr. Logue is good for one reason, he cares. A client is not a quick buck. He always answers his phone, day or night and he understands the law better than anyone. He always answers my calls for both corporate and personal legal decisions and I have a ton of questions. His rates are reasonable too. Fair and firm. Anonymous
