What is DUI Unsupervised Probation?
DUI Unsupervised probation means you are not supervised by a probation agent through Maryland’s drinking and driving monitoring program. Essentially, your probation is to not don’t break the law again, particularly by receiving another DUI. While unsupervised probation for a first offense Maryland DUI is not the norm, it is possible if your case is properly handled by an experienced Maryland DUI Attorney.
First, anyone arrested for a first offense DUI in Maryland should complete an alcohol assessment, education and treatment program. Your Maryland DUI Attorney should help you find a certified addiction and counseling program conveniently located near your place of employment or home. The Law Office of Ross W. Albers helps clients enroll in these programs as part of its affordable fee and retainer.
If you don’t complete an alcohol assessment and treatment program, then the judge will likely make you complete one as part of your supervised probation. Showing the court that you have already completed a program proves that you are taking your DUI seriously.
Finally, retaining a Maryland DUI Attorney with a reputation of taking cases to trial may affect the prosecutor’s recommendation to the court of unsupervised probation versus supervised probation.
