Q. I got a dui and a att to alude I want to see what is the consequences?
A: There are many factors that go into what the likely outcome would be. A good lawyer might be able to negotiate with the prosecutor and reach an agreement in which one or more of your charges is dropped. Alternatively, a lawyer might be able to win your case either on a pretrial motion or at trial. If you were convicted of these charges there is a range of punishment the judge could impose. A big factor in sentencing would be what your criminal record looks like. For example, if you have prior DUI or other convictions.

Let's focus on just the DUI for a second. You could receive a fine as low as $600 or up to several thousand dollars depending on your record and how harsh the judge wants to be. You would also have to pay court costs. As far as jail goes, for a first offense DUI in Alabama, the law allows the judge to sentence you to anywhere from 0 days up to 1 year, all or part of which may be suspended. If you are convicted of DUI you will have to complete a court order CRO program. You may be placed on supervised or unsupervised probation. Your license will be suspended for a period of time (all or part of which may be swapped out for ignition interlock time depending on your record), and you may or may not have to have to have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle and ignition interlock restricted driver license for a period of time.

Fleeing or Attempting to elude (Alabama Code Section 13A-10-52) can be either a Class A Misdemeanor or a Felony if someone other than the defendant was physically injured or killed. In other words it is a serious offense with the risk of jail time. It would also result in a driver license suspension from 6 month to 2 years.

The bottom line is these are serious offenses. You NEED a lawyer to represent you on them if you do not have one already.
