Aggravating DUI Factors that may send you to jail
In Maryland, certain aggravating factors can lead to harsher penalties. It’s not uncommon for these aggravating DUI factors to increase the chances that you will go to jail or pay a higher fine.
As a former Baltimore City DUI prosecutor, Carroll County DUI Lawyer Ross W. Albers was trained to identify the following aggravating DUI factors.
If you’ve previously been convicted of a DUI, then you are at a very high risk for far stiffer punishments if you get caught again. An Assistant State’s Attorney almost always recommends jail time for a subsequent offender.
If you cause property damage or bodily harm as a result of a DUI accident, then you could be facing much worse than a standard DUI conviction with no accident or bad driving.
A standard DUI occurs when your blood-alcohol content registers at 0.08 or higher. However, if your BAC is extremely high, then you may be subject to harsher treatment than another driver with a relatively low BAC.
