DUI Defense

DUI Defense Lawyer Missoula MT - Criminal Law Attorney Montana - Stevenson Law Offices - dui The state of Montana has implemented strict laws for drunk driving. If you have been charged with drinking and driving in Montana, you risk your freedom, finances, and future. The charge alone can turn your whole life upside down. Having an experienced, competent lawyer can make a drastic difference in both the short-term and long-term implications of being charged with or convicted of a DUI.

Penalties for a first-time offense include:

  • Jail time of 1 day to 6 months
  • Fines up to $1,000
  • License suspension for 6 months
  • Possible electronic monitoring for alcohol
  • Mandatory ACT (alcohol education classes) + cost of ACT
If the court orders you to install an IID it will be at your own expense, and ACT classes will cost you an additional $400 and 12 hours of your time. Your license will be suspended and eventually result in a $200 re-instatement fee from the Department of Motor Vehicles. A DUI in Montana can also land you on probation for up to a year, requiring daily costly visits to a probation office.

Merely being charged with a DUI in Montana has additionally resulted in many individuals being monitored by the government in the form of an ankle bracelet (for twice or three-times daily testing). You will be required to pay the cost of your own monitoring. Which many find to be inconvenient and humiliating. This monitoring process by the government has becoming increasingly normalized in recent years.
