Last week, we talked about holiday parties and festivities. We don't want to see charges stemming from those activities ruining anyone's holiday. As we said there, not drinking and driving is the best defense you have against possible charges. Still, we understand that things sometimes happen that might lead a person to drink and drive.
For people in Maryland who are accused of drunk driving, the penalties are harsh. Not only do you stand to have a criminal record, you also face time in jail, community service hours, fines, losing your driver's license and possibly being sent to rehabilitation. The consequences might be even harsher if you have a commercial driver's license. If you rely on having a driver's license to do your job, you might even lose your job.
The fact is that facing drunk driving charges in Maryland can affect every aspect of your life. If you are facing these charges, you have to learn how to fight those charges. Knowing your rights and asserting those rights in a proactive manner can help you to protect your interests.

Of course, building a defense takes time. You need to start working on that defense as early in the process as possible.
