I want to know what fines and charges im facing? Also will the state of virginia pull my record from texas.
DUI is a class 1 misdemeanor. If convicted, the maximum period of incarceration is 12 months in jail and the maximum fine is $2500. It is important to hire an attorney who is experienced in these matters. I have been practicing criminal and traffic law for over 20 years. If you would like to set up a consultation, please contact me at 757-410-5042. My office is located in the Greenbrier section of Chesapeake.
In addition to what has already been stated, if convicted you also face a 12 month suspension of your privileges to drive in Virginia. I'm assuming you are licensed in TX. If so, only TX can suspend your TX license and the DMV there may do so based on the Virginia conviction. The best thing to do is to consult with a Virginia Attorney who can get into all the subtleties of the DUI procedures (including Field Sobriety Tests) and the consequences of a conviction.
